SERMON NOTES: 

Francis Schaeffer:

“What people are in their thought world determines how they act…. The results of their thought world flow through their fingers or from their tongues into the external world. This is true of Michelangelo’s chisel, and it is true of a dictator’s sword.”

Galatians 1:8

Howard Macy:

“Christian community is simply sharing a common life in Christ. It moves us beyond the self-interested isolation of private lives and beyond the superficial social contacts that pass for ‘Christian fellowship.’ The biblical ideal of community challenges us instead to commit ourselves to life together as the people of God.”

  1. THE  OF GOSPEL COMMUNITY

Bob Goff:

“I suppose the same thing happens in our faith communities every day. We want to know who we can trust and who we ought to pass by; who we ought to go with and who we should avoid. In short, we’re all trying to figure out how to live out our faith and who to do it with.”

Hebrews 10:24-25

Hebrews 10:19-23

John Wesley:

“The bible knows nothing of solitary religion.”

Max Lucado in his book Imagine your Life without fear:

 “Questions can make hermits out of us, driving us into hiding. Yet the cave has no answers. Christ distributes courage through community; he dissipates doubts through fellowship. He never deposits all knowledge in one person but distributes pieces of the jigsaw puzzle to many. When you interlock your understanding with mine, and we share our discoveries, when we mix, mingle, confess and pray, Christ speaks. ” 

2. THE  OF GOSPEL COMMUNITY

Hebrews 10:24-25

William Lane:

“Gospel community is a continued care for one another that finds an expression in love, good works, and the mutual encouragement that active participation in the gathering of the community makes possible.”

3. THE  OF GOSPEL COMMUNITY

Hebrews 10:23

Geerhardus Vos:

“The Christian is a man… who lives with his heavenly destiny ever in full view. His outlook is not bounded by the present life and the present world. He sees that which is and that which is to come in their true proportions and in their proper perspective. The center of gravity of his consciousness lies not in the present but in the future. Hope, not possession, is that which gives tone and color to his life. His frame of mind of the heir who knows himself entitled to larger treasures upon which he will enter at a definite point of time.”

C.S. Lewis:

“Every Christian is to become a little Christ. The whole purpose of becoming a Christian is simply nothing else.”
