Sermon entitled - Preaching the Kingdom of God ...NOT... Organized Religion or the Doctrine of Man
JESUS is greater than your ORGANIZED RELIGION or CHURCH GROUP.
For we preach not ourselves(our religion), but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake.
"Preaching the kingdom of God, and teaching those things which concern the Lord Jesus Christ, with all confidence, no man forbidding him. For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power. That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory."
The main emphasis of God's salvation plan(The Gospel) of Grace to mankind is to bring transformation to the life of every individual by the exercise of one's faith in the finish work of Jesus Christ on the cross and NOT the age-old theological debates among church groups concerning; the Godhead - being Oneness(being Jesus name) as opposed to the doctrines of the Trinity and Eternal Security. This is not the debate we should be having in our churches; our focus however should be on reaching every lost soul for Christ by every means possible. It's FAITH in JESUS CHRIST that saves ... and nothing else!!
We have to take advantage of every opportunity to let people know we have a message that transforms lives from the destruction of sin and that we can work with other Christ-followers from various church groups.
There're many people going through challenging and heart-wrenching circumstances in their lives, and they're not looking for dead ritualistic exercise in religion but they're searching for an answer that will bring peace and purpose to their lives . . . and that my friends is found only in Jesus Christ our Lord God and Savior.
