The Offensive Gospel – Part 2Play Audio
For I am not ashamed of the gospel,
for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes.
Last week, we talked about how the Gospel is offensive to sin and why this message needs to continue to be shared. But how exactly are we sharing it? What message do people hear when we speak or when we are quiet? What does the world see by what we do or don’t do? And how should we respond when we are offended?
Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. (Eph. 4:32 )
While the world seeks to draw attention by being louder and more shocking in what it says, as Christians our powerful witness comes from knowing Jesus and being kind and forgiving. It is effective because it is the power of Jesus Christ. Let us continue to share Jesus who has been changing lives for two thousand years, for it is the best message anyone can ever hear.
