Evangelism

Evangelism

Paul charged Timothy to “do the work of an Evangelist.” As Christians we are a “Royal Priesthood” from a “Holy Nation” called to declare the Gospel of Jesus and the love of God to all. How then can we accomplish this mission if we continually fall for divisive rhetoric and seek to be separated from our neighbors? Our ultimate allegiance is to Christ and as Lord He has commanded us to “preach the gospel to all creation.”

ChildrenOfGod

Children of God

Jesus said “blessed are the peacemakers for they will be called Children of God” in Matthew 5:9. Last week we discussed shedding our Earthly labels in favor of our unifying Heavenly label; Christian. This week we take a deeper look into the qualities of a true Christian, and what leads to one being a biblical “Child of God.”

label

Change Your Label

In a world of labels being used to divide us, Black & White, Male & Female, Republican & Democrat, Protestant & Catholic…. we have one label that matters above all others, one that is used to unify us; Christian.

“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus” – Galatians 3:28 ESV

In a culture becoming increasingly divisive, Christian culture ought to be increasingly inclusive; welcoming all people from all races, professions, political affiliations, sexes, sexual orientations, and religions to come and experience the love of Jesus. When Christ becomes our identity, we can break through barriers and stand up for justice for all people.

CONFIRMYOURELECTION

Confirm Your Election

St. Peter said one ought to be “diligent to confirm your calling and election.” The Apostle Paul said one ought to “examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith.” Being willing to “examine” ones actions and “confirm” ones salvation is a monumental step towards spiritual maturity. For if one is found to be lacking in an area, they now have the opportunity to address their weaknesses and overcome them by the help of the Holy Spirit. Together we’ll discover how to “self review” your faith and how to take steps towards spiritual maturity.

GoodSteward

Good Steward

In Christian circles we often hear the term good steward when referring to Earthly wealth management. Many times “The Parable of the Talents” is cited as how to be a good steward with money, that we ought to invest and increase what God has given us, but is that what Jesus was teaching?
