TOPIC: Jesus Christ, The Greatest Missionary (Scroll down for RCCG House Fellowship 18 April 2021 Anthem)

OPENING PRAYER: Father, please make me an incurable soul winner.

PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE: The leader should ask the members: Will Christ come back again?

MEMORY VERSE: The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, – Luke 4:18

BIBLE TEXT: Isaiah 42:5-8 (KJV)

5 Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein:

6 I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;

7 To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.

8 I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.

LESSON INTRODUCTION: The word missionary is derived from the latin word “mitto” which means “to send”. There is a greek equivalent called “apostello”. They both mean “to send”. Therefore a missionary may be defined or described as someone who is commissioned by a superior authority to bring a message or to carry out a work instructed by the sending authority. The missionary is sent to relate God’s salvation message to the world. Thus Jesus Christ is God’s missionary per excellence.

To explain how Christ did the work of a missionary when He was in earth.
