1 Corinthians 9:17-9:27

Do you believe that you’ve been transformed by the Gospel? Have you told someone? This week we continued our look at Paul’s letter to the Corinthian church. Paul’s deepest desire was that he would be able to impact others with the Good News of Jesus. This meant that for some, he would embrace his liberties to impact the Gentiles. For others, it meant that Paul would lay down his liberties to impact the Jews. The biggest take-away was that it began with his own heart – and a deep desire to love others. The same is true for us in 2017. If we believe we have been redeemed by the transforming power of Jesus, then our hearts should change and our desires should be for our friends and neighbors to embrace a life-giving relationship with the God of the universe. John closed our time together by challenging us to seek out our friends and neighbors in order to share the Gospel. But that begins with our own submission to Jesus.

If you would like to talk more about how your story and the Gospel connect, we would love to hear from you. If you have questions, please feel free to ask them here.

The Romans Road

As part of the close of the message today, John walked everyone through ‘The Romans Road‘. It’s a great tool for helping to explain the Gospel to our friends and neighbors. It helps to paint the picture of our need for the saving work of Jesus and then gives us the solution in the sacrificial death, burial and resurrection of God’s Son.
