The Hole in Our Gospel – What Now? – Live Service

As Richard Stearns begins the last of the Chapters of his book, “The Hole in Our Gospel,” he writes the following: “So far, I have spent twenty-two chapters arguing the case that there is a hole in our gospel and that, as a result, we have embraced a view of our faith that is far too tame. We have, in fact, reduced the gospel to a mere transaction involving the right beliefs rather than seeing in it the power to change the world. I have painted a picture of a world aflame with violence, poverty, injustice, disease, corruption, and human suffering – a world in need of revolution. But I have also attempted to make clear from Scripture that the whole gospel – the very social revolution Jesus intended as His kingdom unfolded “in earth as it is in heaven” – has been entrusted to us, those who claim to follow Christ.”

The Hole in Our Gospel – A Tale of Two Churches – Live Service

The person or the Church that uses what they have (be it much or little) to serve the Lord. Let us encourage you along with our Lord Jesus this morning because some of you need to hear this. You may not think you are much in the eyes of the world around you but be faithful to God with what you have. “You have kept my word.” Jesus says. You may feel small and maybe even despised by the culture of the day, but we can still be obedient to God and be faithful to Him and be an overcomer for Him. There are a lot of famous and flashy Christians who have not “kept my word.” I promise you that obeying the Word of God is a far greater achievement than being famous or flashy in Kingdom work.

The Hole in Our Gospel – An Indescribable Gift – Live Service

The Bible has a lot to say about the difference between a benefit that is only temporary and one that lasts forever. When each of us came into this world, the fact of the matter is that we brought nothing into it, and it is certain that we can take nothing out with us – nothing material, that is. When we stand face to face before Jesus, like we discussed last week, the size of the bank account that our relatives are fighting over won’t make a bit of difference to him. What will make a difference is our righteous character – remember the righteous have a place prepared for them.

The Hole in Our Gospel – Are You Planning for God?? – Live Service

God Planned for you…. are you planning for God???
There is a fearsome finality to Jesus’ judgment. There are no second chances during the second coming. Those who had time to make wise decisions for themselves about the course of their lives will at the final judgment have a final decision about their final fate “made for them” with the utmost finality.

The Hole in Our Gospel – What Does God Expect of Us? – Live Service

What does God expect of you – God is asking you and me – for everything. And everything means that we are not only Jesus followers here on Sunday or in the private parts of our life. What He invites us to and requires of us is a total life commitment. To get out of our comfort zones. Just like he called Paul on the road to Damascus, just like he called Jonah, Matthew or Richard Stearns, Jesus calls us to be His partners in changing our world.
