Live - Keswick Convention 2018 - 17 July 11.15am - Bible Reading 2 - Christopher Ash

John 6: 1-59. Part of the series 'Mission in John's Gospel'. Mission is the unstoppable overflow of love from the heart of the Triune God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. No biblical writer paints this beautiful theme in such rich colours as John, the Beloved Disciple. Words of "sending" abound: John the Baptist is sent by God; Jesus speaks often of "the Father who sent me"; he promises that he and his Father will send the Holy Spirit; and finally he commissions the apostles – and through them the apostolic church – "as the Father sent me, so I send you." In this tour of John’s gospel with "sending" spectacles on, we shall learn much of the heart, the means, the priorities, and the burning motivation for authentic Christian mission flowing out from our own homes to the ends of the earth.
