Sermon Notes - Christ’s Ministry is Our Ministry

Theme: Christ’s Ministry is Our Ministry

(No Excuses, No Regrets and No Turning Back)!

 

Key Preaching Verses

a)  Galatians 5.22-24:  St Paul taught the Galatian Church, “the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.  Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

b)  Luke 9.60“Jesus said to him, ‘Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and proclaim the kingdom of God.’”

 

Focus Questions

  • Have you done the Natural Church Development questionnaire to identify your God gifts?  Are you using your God gift as a part of the Ministry of Faith Community Strathpine?
  • Are we dead or alive?  Are we led by the Spirit of God or the things of this world?  (Hint: a) See Galatians 5.1, 13-25  b) Our stewardship of time given in Ministry will reveal much about our life priorities.)
  • What are the concrete examples that the Spirit of God is active in our lives?  Do you manifest the fruits of the Spirit in your living?

 

Take Home Challenge

  • In today’s Gospel reading Jesus teaches His followers three things about discipleship and ministry:

- The costs are high!

- The time is now! 

The way is forward!

 

  • Story of William Borden for those who are always making excuses for their stewardship failures in time given in ministry and money given to Christ’s Church.

- No Excuses!

-No Regrets!

- No Turning Back!
