I heard the gospel again tonight.
Roy Fish proclaimed how "...wonderfully attractive" it is "to preach Jesus in the power of the Holy Spirit."
Ed Stetzer, who had just returned from a visit to the Vatican in Rome, proclaimed that whether Catholic or Baptist, we are prone to teach our people to be religious people who follow rules. Preaching from 2 Corinthians 5:16-21, Stetzer made 4 points:
1) we need a new perspective
2) sent on a mission of reconciliation
3) representing Jesus and his kingdom
4) because of the work of Jesus on the cross.
Praise God for the gospel.
