Key Idea: Kingdom love seems otherworldly because it is otherworldly
Only through the divine King Jesus can His followers live out the superhuman Kingdom Code.
Right character before God requires royal example, royal substitution, and royal power. Look to the King for it all!
The Glory of the Gospel is that when the Church is absolutely different from the world, she invariably attracts it.
Followers of Jesus display counter-cultural character which honors the King, confounds observers, and invites true happiness.
Your work is critical to our mission
Generosity results in life liberation and bountiful blessing
I’m thankful to have grown up in a church that preached the Gospel very clearly. However, I subtly began to assume the Gospel in my own life. I knew that the Gospel was necessary for evangelism and to “get someone saved,” but I did not think much about the ongoing work of the Gospel in my own life.
Hope is hard to come by in the inner city, because day-to-day realities beat people down and leave them utterly hopeless. How much more is this the case for the children in these communities?
Some young adults from my local church recently approached me, expressing interest in ministry involvement and wondering if there were any areas of ministry in which they could get involved. My initial reaction was, “I can’t think of anything off the top of my head, but I will keep you in mind.” What does this reveal about how I view and understand ministry?
Some of us live with a constant low-level guilt from unfulfilled prayer commitments. Praying for people is tricky. Quickly we get overextended in an endeavor we already bungle.
Matthew, being a tax collector, wasn’t the most likely person to become a follower of Jesus. It looks like Matthew found in Jesus that “treasure” that he was willing to “sell” everything in order to have.
All Christians are called to be a part of God’s mission to reach all the nations with the good news of the Gospel. Unfortunately, many Christians sit on the sideline ignoring God’s call to get engaged in what He is doing around the world.
Sometimes our lives are so jam-packed with stuff we don’t know if we are coming or going! If this is the case, take some time away for the sole purpose to assess your schedule and priorities. Get your “compass” out to determine the direction of your life and relationships.
I have lived in Columbus, Ohio for the bulk of my life. I have seen many changes here in the past 28 years, some good and some bad. When I was a child, I cared about entertainment, fun, and how Columbus could serve me better. Now I am starting to see things differently.
If you want to be salt and light for Jesus Christ, developing some salty speech would do wonders! “Salty speech?” you wonder. For many, that reminds us of the type of language that we have often associated with sailors and—let’s face it—a large number of our encounters in daily life. “Surely Jesus wouldn’t want us to speak in a ‘salty’ way, would He?” you protest.
I’m completely serious when I say that Burger King is one of my favorite restaurants. A few years ago when our family moved to Columbus, I was overjoyed to discover a Burger King just a few blocks away from my house. It was only a few weeks later that I was alerted to the condition of my beloved Burger King: they had placed a notice on their sign that read “Closed for Remodel”.
