Jesus’ Mission Blueprint

Text: Acts 1:1-11

Sermon notes:

Remember what Jesus did (v. 1-3)

  • the book of Acts is part 2 (gospel of Luke is part 1)
  • Jesus prepared His followers

Wait for guidance (v. 4-5)

  • Jesus told them to wait together
  • the Holy Spirit was coming

Focus on the mission (v. 6-11)

  • Jesus reminded His followers of the task
  • the Holy Spirit gives us power
  • our purpose is to witness
  • the plan in to impact the entire world
  • what are you waiting for

Big Idea of the Message: God has given us the power, purpose, and plan to courageously be His witnesses to the world.

Application Point: Ask yourself if you have the urgency needed to carry out God’s mission.
