Pursuing the Clarity of the GospelSunday, July 15, 2012
Too often we can allow too much to muddy the waters of the gospel by adding our own personal opinions, theological preferences, and denominational aims. Over time this has the effect of making it quite difficult to see what the gospel actually is. This lack of clarity tends to absorb our time, money, resources, and energy until our heads are spinning from exhaustion, and we are left wondering what it is we are supposed to be doing as a believer. A return to Luke 19 and the famous story of Zaccheus can help quickly clear up any muddied waters in your life and local church. Jesus couldn't have made it any clear what the gospel is about. It isn't about programs, ministries, conferences, workshops, seminars, and sermons. It's about seeking and saving the lost.
- Part One: Jesus is Seeking and Saving the Lost
- Part Two: When Jesus Seeks the Lost, He Will Find Them and Call Them
- Part Three: When Jesus Calls a Person They Must Follow...and Quickly!
- Part Four: Conclusion
