Sermon Notes

Your Mission is Too Small

Isaiah 49:1-7

God blessed the nation of Israel in order to be a blessing to all other nations, but eventually, they refrained from sharing that salvation with others. After the work of Jesus in our lives, we are called to go outside the walls of the church to multiply as we make disciples and plant churches.


  • The coming Messiah was promised to bring about spiritual deliverance (Is. 49:1).
  • The Servant of the LORD deserves the attention of the nations (Is. 49:1).
  • The Word of God is meant to be used with those up close and those far away (Is. 49:2).
  • The cross of Christ brought glory to God and provided salvation for us (Is. 49:3-4).
  • Jesus’ work was the task of reconciliation (Is. 49:5).
  • Restoring religious people is a great task but not great enough for Jesus (Is. 49:6).
  • The message and messengers of Christ have nothing less than a worldwide agenda of salvation (Is. 49:6).
  • Jesus will receive worship from all nations (Is. 49:7).


  • The Church should not entertain small goals and limited efforts for Kingdom work.
  • It is too small a goal to hope that our church will grow with more religious people.
  • We should work to multiply disciples in such a way that generations unborn and nations unreached are eternally changed.
  • Multiply:
    • Yourself
    • Your Group
    • Your Ministry
    • Your Service
    • Your Church
