Stand Alone Sermons
Community Of Ambassadors
2 Corinthians 5:20 • February 17, 2019 • Pastor Ralph M. Gordon
What type of church would Renovation be, if each one of us lived with a posture of becoming “All Things To All People” so that we might save some? How would our homes and our communities be different? Our text for today keeps us in Corinth, but in Paul’s 2nd address to the Corinthian church, we get a chance to see how they were reminded of their call and the importance of their COMMUNITY.
All Things To All People
1 Corinthians 9:19-23 • February 10, 2019 • Pastor Doug Nelms Jr.
We seem to have an issue with evangelism. The question we need to ask ourselves, why? Why is it, that one of the central disciplines for the Christian life has become utterly distasteful? Why is it, that the thought of us going into our places of work, school, or social interaction and specifically finding an opportunity to do evangelism causes us great discomfort or anxiety. I think if we are honest with ourselves we all know the answer, We are overly concerned with our present and wholly unconcerned with peoples eternity. When was the last time we thought about our co-workers eternity? When was the last time we thought about our neighbors eternity? I’ll be the first one to bleed, as a pastor the gravitational pull of this gig is towards Christians. And to my shame, I have gone months without thinking about my neighbors eternity. But the scriptures paint a very different picture for us. For the disciple of Jesus, our lives should be one of perpetual evangelism. That For the sake of saving some, we fight for common ground with all.
