Sent By God
By Pastor John

John 20:21-22
21 So Jesus said to them again, "Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you." 22 And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit. (NKJ)

God sent His Son, not in power, but in weakness
The Father sent Jesus, not as a ruler, but as a baby
The Father sent Jesus, not to conquer the world, but to die for the world.

Philippians 2:5-11
5 Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: 6 Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, 7 but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death-- even death on a cross! 9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Jesus made Himself nothing = He emptied Himself
Jesus lived the way we can live, by the power of the Holy Spirit

When Jesus was baptized, He was filled with the Holy Spirit, who led Him our into the wilderness to be tempted.  He did all in the power of the Holy Spirit.

John 20:21-22
21 So Jesus said to them again, "Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you." 22 And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit. (NKJ)

We are sent the same way, in weakness. 
Just like Jesus, we are to rely on the power of the Holy Spirt.

We are all being sent - some near, some far.
To witness to people. We speak to them, but the Holy Spirit convicts and Jesus saves them.
To love people with the agape love given by the Holy Spirit.
To wrestle with God in prayer.  But we don't even know how to pray. The Holy Spirit helps us.

So Send I You
So send I you-by grace made strong to triumph
O'er hosts of hell, o'er darkness, death, and sin,
My name to bear, and in that name to conquer -
So send I you, my victory to win.

So send I you - to take to souls in bondage
The word of truth that sets the captive free,
To break the bonds of sin, to loose death's fetters -
So send I you, to bring the lost to me.

So send I you - my strength to know in weakness,
My joy in grief, my perfect peace in pain,
To prove My power, My grace, My promised presence -
So send I you, eternal fruit to gain.

So send I you - to bear My cross with patience,
And then one day with joy to lay it down,
To hear My voice, "well done, My faithful servant -
Come, share My throne, My kingdom, and My crown!"

"As the Father hath sent Me, so send I you."
