Sherlock Part 1

EVERY Christian has been recruited by Jesus to join in His MISSION.

Matthew 28:18-20 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Mark 16:15 15 He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. 16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.

Colossians 4:5 Live wisely among those who are not believers, and make the most of every opportunity

Every Christian is a Kingdom Forensic FIELD Agent (KFFA).

Matthew 5:14-16 14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others…

Light – REVEALS (makes visible) clearly what was hidden or obscured by darkness.

It ILLUMINATES; brings understanding where there was ignorance (no understanding).

It WARMS what was cold.

It makes SOFT what was once hard.

A WITNESS makes known what they’ve experienced (seen, heard, touched, tasted, smelled).

1 John 1:1-5 1That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched—this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. 2 The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us. 3 We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. 4 We write this to make our joy complete.
5 This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.

Our light doesn’t originate with us, it is a REFLECTION of God’s light through us.
