This may be redundant for some of our readers who also follow our missionary friends in Ukraine, Caleb and Christina, but it’s that good.
In particular, I love the section beginning at 4:13, about how the power of God has been sucked out of our “proclamations” of the Gospel. He asks, What’s happened to our church today? America is not even on the map of church growth. What’s happened to us?
Some clips that really spoke to me:
“The Good News is not a suggestion to the world. The Good News is not good advice. The Good News is not asking you to give Jesus a try.”
“We don’t need people to fill a spot on a stage, we need people who are ready to give their lives in missionary sacrifice and to die for the sake of the Gospel!”
“If you come to serve Jesus in ministry don’t come for the sake of the stuff and the building, come for the sake of the lives of the lost.”
Take 45 minutes to watch this sermon, if you care are knowing the Gospel so that you can share it with others.
The ending is particularly poignant and I feel much more prepared to share the Gospel with Spaniards (and my neighbors!) having heard this sermon.
