BELLS Series - The Five Habits of Highly Missional People


“The Fifth Habit: Being Sent”

Matthew 28:16-20 NIV

BELLS =     Bless      Eat      Listen      Learn      Sent

Sermon Outline:


1.       Journal how Jesus has revealed his gift of reconciliation.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16 

2.       Journal how you’ve assisted Jesus in bringing justice 

“Act Justly, love mercy and walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:6

3.       Journal where you have pointed out God’s reign in His beauty.

“O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory before the heavens.” Psalm 8:

4.       Journal where you’ve seen his reign in wholeness.

“The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is preached to the poor.” Luke 7:22

These habits need to be discipleship, nurturing and accountability
