This Series helps to equip generations to be welcoming in Jesus’ name and for His sake. Each lesson shares one way we can be welcoming, everything from forgiving to serving, and the lessons even share what happens when we fail to lead and welcome others to Christ. This Series is an exercise in being welcoming through everything we say and do in our daily lives, things we never think of, things we forget to do. It is also an eyeopener to the extent that it will show us things we can do and that God’s Word guides and strengthens us to do that lead and welcome others to Christ. Sometimes our faith isn’t alive simply because we don’t know or remember everything we can do for the glory of our Father in Heaven. Because this is a Spring Series that includes Easter, it is an excellent time to share Jesus’ suffering, death, and resurrection as our example and strength to be welcoming in and through God’s grace. Each lesson helps to carry out the mission and theme of this UIM year and that is to “Welcome All God’s Children.”. This Series complements the UIM Lenten Easter Worship Series “Jesus, Our Family Name.”
This Series is based on: 1 Corinthians 10:31 - So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God and Matthew 5:16 - In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. Through these verses is shares that “being welcoming” is all about letting the light of Christ shine in and through us every day and making sure that everything we say and do to lead and welcome others to Christ is done to the glory of God our Father in heaven. As we do, people who like what they see ( “Jesus in us”) will desire to come to Him too.
