Becoming A Life-Saver Part 1 of the Life-Saver Sermon Series
Matthew 28:18-21 (NKJV) 18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
Breaking The Hold of Complacency: Ask God for his heart for the lost. 2 Peter 3:9 (NKJV) 9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.
Breaking The Hold of Complacency: We are saved to serve. Ephesians 4:12 (NKJV) 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, Ministry really starts when we leave this building. We all can do something.
Why Should Victory Tabernacle Grow? Because God intends for this church to grow. God didn’t send His son to die for a small percentage of the population of our area. John 3:16-17 (NKJV) 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
Why Should Victory Tabernacle Grow? He sent his son because he wants a big family. Without Christ people will spend eternity in hell. Romans 6:23 (NKJV) 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
What Really Is A Stake There is a Real Heaven and a Real Hell and Real People who will spend eternity in one place or another. God expects us to do something about it. God’s attention, blessing, and favor.
If We Love God, We Are Concerned With What Concerns Him God’s main interest is the welfare of his children. If we want God’s help in our church, we need to be involved in what God is interested in.
