September 2018 Sermon Series
September 2 – “Uncomfortable Responsibility” 2 Timothy 4: 1-4
Here Paul is trying to admonish young Timothy on how to pastor to the body of Christ. These verses help us see the “responsibility” Timothy would carry. We also see some things that will affect the flock’s response-ability to Timothy and the Gospel. Are we in a position to say “yes” to the message of Christ?
September 9 – “Uncomfortable Love” John 15:13
Love is NOT a feeling. Love is a commitment. Current culture is very confused about love and emotion and that sets up some pretty unhealthy expectations.
September 16 – “Uncomfortable People” 1 Corinthians 12:14
There is no “I” in “Church.” Many Christians today have zero issue with disengaging from local church life and opting instead for a “Me and Jesus” faith.
September 23 – “Uncomfortable Worship” Psalm 95: 1-2
There is a profound truth in scripture about worship: It shapes us profoundly. Too many people approach worship in church with a posture of cynicism or apathy. If Christians only worshiped when their hearts were “in it” fully, worship would rarely happen.
September 30 – “Uncomfortable Unity” John 17: 22
Unity requires humility and love. John Piper once said about unity – “When we live well in our communities of conviction and love well across convictional lines.” Unity means we don’t cut and run at the first sign of tension.
