Insecurity, self-pity & immaturity derail the faith community from Her central calling of expanding God’s kingdom reign among all people groups. Sometimes we need to operate in community with one blind eye & one deaf ear. Overlooking some things, not listening too attentively to others - letting some things go since someone just needs to grow up as they grow old. Instead we disciple them through their issues placing our own pleasures in subordination to the greater calling of the Church and seeking peace & unity for it.

Today we explore living in communal tension, where we need to ask ourselves three questions concerning our thoughts & behaviors, as well as our regard of others thoughts & behaviors. Those are: am I convinced, am I doing this unto the Lord, and will it stand the test of the judgment seat? We will see it’s better to keep our opinions to ourselves, or voice them knowing we could be wrong, or someone may not agree & that’s okay. And that we only speak with loving boldness & sensitivity only on primary Gospel convictions & destructive sin issues. We need to guard not only our personal witness, but also our corporate witness to the nations. We pursue integrity together.

It’s time to wake up from our slumber. To put on the armor of light, which is to clothe ourselves with Christ. To choose sides, and begin to fight the spiritual battle for the sake of Christ’s name among the nations!

We get ourselves in trouble when we do not follow our King’s model of love. When we put too much trust in worldly politics and ways of coercion. How can we practically live in two worlds, under a worldly government, but subject to the kingdom of God?

We tend to reserve our flowers for the dead. Instead, we should be in the habit of giving our flowers to the living. Flowers of encouragement, hospitality, small & great loving actions as seen in our giving and demeanor. Loving so well we don’t even need to say the word for people to know they are loved. Following the example of Christ as he loved others to see the nations of the world know his grace & mercy in the cross, and his provision in the resurrection.

As we submit ourselves fully to Christ in our call to bring the simple Gospel to the nations, how are we to operate? This is a communal effort. To do this together, pride must be eradicated, and humility must reign. Differences within our ranks, or displayed through the nations before us, should not bring fear. Rather we should embrace them, and keep our eyes focused on the true calling of the church.

Romans 12:1-2 is a familiar passage. In offering our bodies as a living sacrifice, holy & pleasing to God, it becomes our true & proper worship, to not conform to the pattern of this world, but we’re transformed by the renewing of our minds. Instead of listening to groupthink, we listen to God-think (God’s will) which leads us to the final end of understanding our purpose - to reach all people groups in this world for Christ!

We never want to make the same mistake twice. Israel had disregarded God’s righteousness, and as a result His call. In our Christian subculture, it is possible to do the same, and Paul warns us of this in Chapter 11.

The Great Omission

Scripture from beginning to end communicates the Gospel in simplicity. Salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus, and the Church is called to bring that message to all people groups of the world. This began with the call to Abraham in Genesis 12 and extends to us today (Matthew 24:14, 28:19-20). Yet, we often commit the sin of the Great Omission instead of practicing the Great Commission. How have we added to the Gospel, making it unattainable to others? Or, how have we gotten hung up on issues making them larger than they were intended to be, and therefore, missed the call of God to the people groups of the world as the Church? These questions are addressed in todays sermon.
