Using God's Word to Disobey God


Church Family,

While continuing to dwell on the Power of the Gospel as I read God’s word this morning I am moved to realize a terrible sin in my life. I often will use God’s word as an excuse to not to do God’s word.

Mark 3:4-5 And he said to them, “Is it lawful on the Sabbath to do good or to do harm, to save life or to kill?” But they were silent. 5And he looked around at them with anger, grieved at their hardness of heart, and said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” He stretched it out, and his hand was restored.

One of the many powers found in the gospel is that there is no law that keeps us from doing good. No law that is written that prevents us from sharing the gospel, reaching out to the “least of these,” and serving those in need of salvation.

Yet, I must confess I will often try to use the Word of God as a reason to not Love, Serve, and Go. What are some of the scriptures that you abuse to prevent you from sharing the gospel?

Some might argue that there is more to being a believer/church than sharing the gospel. That our focus should be on unity, love, etc

Mark 3:14-15 And he appointed twelve (whom he also named apostles) so that they might be with him and he might send them out to preach15and have authority to cast out demons.

The Power of the Gospel brings the presence of God in our lives and compels believers to stand against all opposition in order to share the Gospel.

Mark 3:24-25 If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. 25And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand.

The Power of the Gospel brings true unity with God, not the knowledge of the Word and not human agreement.

Reminders:

  1. Tonight at 6pm we will have Family Fun Night. Prepare for water activities similar to VBS, Pizza, and Fun! Invite others
  2. August 9th-11th Family Summer Camp at Camp Pinehill. There will be an important meeting this Sunday after the morning service about this.
  3. July 29th after the Evening service we will have a SURPRISE sending out party for Peyton Andreucci. This is a secret so please do not mention it to him. We are thankful for the ministry that Peyton has been given and God’s graciousness to send Him to our church. As you know he has served as our youth intern this summer and will be going to Southeastern Baptist Theological College on August 11th. We want to give everyone the chance to thank him, pray for him, and if lead give a gift.

Love, Serve, Go

Brian Winburn
