All in Leadership
In my experience, it has been helpful to confront gospel-centred confusion by differentiating between gospel proclamation and gospel implication.
Using audio from Don Carson, this short video challenges us from the Bible how we must be sharing our lives, opening up the Bible and changing generations as we point them to Jesus.
God's covenant people should be attractive to a world that longs to know what it means to belong. Yet God's covenant people should always be on a gospel mission to impact the communities around them.
This is an adaptation of a recent sermon I gave on the subject of local church leadership.
Not even Jesus—King of kings and Lord of lords—came to be served. Jesus knelt and served the scum of humanity, despised the shame, endured the cross, and gave his life a ransom for many.
My general advice to those of us who hear or read something which we have a different opinion on, is this: "Clamp your mouth. Bite your tongue. Unplug the keyboard. Do whatever it takes to refrain from commenting."
"Desire without knowledge is not good,
and whoever makes haste with his feet misses the way."
