The Power of the Gospel and The Nature of the Kingdom
Transcript of The Power of the Gospel and The Nature of the Kingdom
The Nature of the Kingdom
The Power of the Gospel in the Individual Life
It always produces fruit
There are degrees of fruitfulness
The Source is a Powerful Seed
Immaturity from Spiritual Laziness
“11 Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing ye are dull of hearing. 12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. 13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. 14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.”
Resistance to the Holy Spirit
1 Thessalonians 5:19
1 Corinthians 3:11-15
"11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; 13 Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is. 14 If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. 15 If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire."
The Power of the Gospel in the Growth of the Kingdom
The Power of the Gospel in the Expanse of the Kingdom
It is the power of the Gospel in the life of a person that brings forth fruit.
It is the nature of this Kingdom that the King transforms its citizens.
Not by the strength of men
1 Corinthians 2:1-5
We will focus on prayer instead of performance
We will focus on the truth of the message instead of results
We will focus on gratitude and not guilt
We will have a sense of hope instead of futility
It is the power of the gospel and not the working of men that grows the Kingdom.
It is the nature of this Kingdom that it is the King that builds it and not men.
It is the power of the gospel that starts small and exponentially expands the Kingdom.
It is the nature of this Kingdom that the King receives all the glory from its humble beginnings and exponential expansion.
Transforming a tiny seed into a glorious tree
