If you haven’t been to the DeKalb County fair yet, remember that this is the night when we have no activities happening at the church. We are encouraging you to get out into your community gathering and make connections.
When Jesus first sent out His disciples for ministry, “he sent them out to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick” (Luke 9:2). They had authority to do two things: preach the kingdom of God, and heal the sick. None of them had any more authority to do so that we do. But “they set out and went from village to village, preaching the gospel and healing people everywhere” (Luke 9: 6).
Have you received the Holy Spirit since you’ve believed? Then launch out on your own missionary journey tonight and look for open doors to share two things: Preach [declare] the gospel, and heal the sick! And let me know what happens, because I’m praying for you.
