“The Great Sending – God’s Heart For The World Beating Through You”

PRESENTER: President Greg Walton of the Florida-Georgia District

The disciples in the first century AD excelled in the multiplication and growth of the Word, as recorded in the Book of Acts. By contrast, the church in the twenty-first century appears to be evading Christ’s sending, experiencing decline rather than growth. Today’s church is short of breath, too weak to move out of its comfort zone of preoccupation with itself, and too complacent to venture into evangelical territory while continuing to strive for its purity of doctrine. Programs don’t work. Old mindsets and habits prevail. The church as we know it today is dying missionally, drowning in indolence and apathy. It is therefore in urgent need of an intense and invasive treatment: a deep dive into God’s Word for the sending of God (Missio Dei) into the world.

The Great Sending brings together 42 brief devotional Bible studies written by well-known and respected leaders in the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod (LCMS) to challenge and encourage Christians and Christian congregations everywhere to understand and participate in the sending nature and activity of God more fully.

The Great Sending: God's Heart for the World Beating Through You is an invitation to participate in an immersion of Christ's power, exercised through His sending Word, for a heart transformation, and
to endorse The Great Sending initiative and movement as a reflection of your God transformed commitment to the sending of God, the Missio Dei.
