Lyrics

Abandonment-

by Matt Hoole

Verse
Only one thing do I ask

Only one thing do I seek

Only one song do I sing

Only one cry do I bring

 

Chorus

Move me, Call me, Take me

Draw me deeper in you

 

Bridge
Deeper into the oceans of your love

I cannot get enough

And I’ll abandon everything of earth

Just to know you just to know you

 

Verse 2

I will lay down all I am

I will lay down all I treasure

I will lay down all I dream

For you alone are my future

Tear Stained Faces-

by Angela Oliver

Verse 1

Thousands of faces around the world, tear-stained faces crying out for love

For hope that endures and freedom from chains, for the truth that lives inside us all

I can’t ever imagine the hopeless feeling that these people live with everyday.

Why haven’t we told them? Is Jesus not worth it? It’s time we live what we believe.


Verse 2

Do we know what we believe in? Is his story worth dying for? Does our heart break when we hear about the dying or are we too numb to feel it anymore?

Don’t we know they’re calling? Can’t we hear them? Can’t we feel their pain?

Aren’t we listening?


Verse 3

He’s asking us this question. Will we obey? And quit pretending, and start walking. 

I often wonder what we are thinking when so many people are left in the dark. 

You must be crying, you must be longing for more to hear the call.
Don’t you know they’re calling? Can’t you hear them? Can’t you feel their pain?

Aren’t you listening?
Thousands of faces around the world, tear-stained faces crying out for love

Even If I Die-

by Angela Oliver

Verse 1

Everything I ever wanted you control and you contain it
Everything I ever held onto You may remove it
But would that make you less worthy, would that make you less worthy

 

Verse 2
Take me to the barren nations I want to help the mother and her child
Make me stronger maybe a little more courageous
I want to fight for You, Fight for You

 

Chorus
Even if I die in the process I will give it all, I will give it all
Even if I die in the process I will give it all, I will give it all
Because You are worthy, You are worthy, You are worthy of all of me

 

Verse 3
Who am I to steal and glory, You deserve and Lord you know I owe it
I am Nothing without you to complete me so I’m going to fight for you, fight for you

I’m On My Way-

by Angela Oliver

 

Searching, oh you searching souls looking for the more
Empty, oh you empty lives with so little to live for
Broken, oh you broken people with no means of a cure
Barren, oh you barren nations with no miracle maker that you know

I see your pain and it crushes me
I see your ash covered soul
I see the stains how they haunt me
I won’t take it anymore

I’m on my way
I’m on my way

I will never forget you and all that’s I’ve seen
No ignoring your future to gain more then i need
Your cause will be priority over my own
With endurance I will show you’re not destined to be disowned


I’m on my way x4

Sorry so many watch you
So sorry so many watch you x2

May my hand and my feet never just observe you
May my eyes and my soul take you in
May you always be branded on my heart
And may I never ever complain

Jesus savior
Jesus Rescuer rescue x2

My Colors 

Presented by Erik Gonzalez

I can only wonder if this was how Moses felt, When the Red Sea parted?

Or what Joshua experienced when he stepped into the Promised land of Canaan?

Perhaps what David sensed when he encountered a giant.

I wonder if maybe this is what went through the minds of the disciples. As they were called from a routine life of monotony to a true-life of fishing, an adventure of real abundance?

Or what John experienced when he laid his head upon a chest and heard the beating heart of our living God, of our beloved?

Perhaps this is what Jesus sensed, when he held the vessel of our salvation and drank from the cup of the will of the father?

I wonder if these are the thoughts of martyrs, that approach the end with line prints in the sand, that have made their allegiance clear, that have known their colors?
 

I’m part of the fellowship of the unashamed. I have Holy Spirit power.

The die has been cast. I’ve stepped over the line. The decision has been made—I’m a disciple of Jesus Christ.

I won’t look back, let up, slow down, back
away, or stand still.

My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, and my future, secure. I’m finished with low living, done with sight walking, fed up with buckling knees, and sick from colorless dreams, tamed visions, worldly talking, cheap generosity, and dwarfed ambitions.

I no longer need preeminence, prosperity, position, promotions, plaudits, or popularity. I don’t have to be right, first, best, recognized, praised, regarded, or rewarded.

 I now live by faith, leaning on his presence, walking in patience, uplifted by prayer, and laboring with power.

My face is set on the goal, my gait is fast, my goal is heaven, my road is narrow, my way is rough, my companions are few, but my Guide is reliable, the mission is clear.

I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away. I won’t be turned back, deluded, or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, wince in hesitation from the presence of the enemy, nor will I pander at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity!

I won’t give up, shut up, or let up until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, preached up for the cause of Christ. I am a disciple of Jesus.


I must keep going until he comes. Give until I can’t anymore, preach until all have come to know and work until death stops me. And, when Jesus comes back, when He returns for his own, When the king of kings comes down on His white horse, to welcome His children home remember this, He will have no problem recognizing me. My banner’s allegiance will be clear.

What will your colors be?

Night of Missions
Take-aways

The Great Commission: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations” (Matt. 28:19). 

Nations = ta ethne: ethnolinguistic groups (over 14,000 of these people groups globally)

In order to finish the Great Commission, we need to reach all of these people groups. 

Where are we in accomplishing this final task? 
3.3 billion people unreached (42% of the world population)

Over 7,400 unreached people groups

 

Unreached = little to no access to the gospel: <2% Christian, lack Scripture in their language, churches & Christian resources; the unreached need the global church to go to them and raise up indigenous believers 

 

Lost = those who have not trusted in Jesus for salvation; these people still have access to the gospel
All unreached are lost, but not all lost are unreached - there is a difference in access/need 

 

The Great Imbalance - Our resources are not going towards bringing the gospel to the unreached, which is the goal of the task we have been left with by Jesus.
1% of the money given in the global Church and 3% of our missionaries go to the unreached 
99% of our money and 97% of our workers go to those that already have the gospel

 

Missions Throughout Scripture: Gen. 12:1-3, Gen. 15:5-6, Gen. 17:3-6, Gal. 3:6-9, Gen. 11, Ex. 9:13-16, Ps. 67, Ps. 96, Acts 2:1-11, Matt.24:14, Rev. 5:9, Rev. 7:9, Luke 10:2, Rom. 10:14-15

 

Defining Missions & the Missionary
“Missions” should be understood as taking the gospel to where it is not and a “missionary” is one who uniquely does this task.

 

Reprioritizing In Our Abundance
Continuing to withhold our abundance is not justified by the good that can come from it in light of the unreached. We have a radically unequal distribution of our missions resources which calls for a re-alignment of our priorities with God’s.  

There is an end goal and we are expected to finish it.

The reason we exist is to bring the gospel to the whole world.

Calling

We should not ultimately determine what we do with our lives based primarily upon personal preferences, dreams, strengths and personalities. 

The question is not, “What do I want to do?” but rather “What do You (God) want me to do?”

Since the Great Commission is a global call, all Christians are called to be substantially involved in reaching the unreached even if they are not a goer by zealously sending and mobilizing.  

Biblical precedents for NOT determining calling based on personal preferences include: Moses, Jeremiah, Jonah, & Paul. 

 

Brandon’s Vision of Two Babies 

He sees a picture in his mind: two babies. The first is overweight, the other is starving. “Which baby do you feed?” asked God. “The starving baby, of course,” replied Brandon. Now he sees the overweight baby again. He is hungry, yet Brandon knows that he will receive something at the end of the day. Then he sees the starving baby, knowing that he will not receive anything and will die at the end of the day. “Which baby do you feed?”  asked God. “The starving baby, of course,” replied Brandon.  The American church continues to feed the overweight baby while the starving baby will die at the end of the day. 

 

We do missions because He is not getting worship from all nations.
