Being a Risk Taker for God’s Kingdom

 ‘I tell you that to everyone who has, more will be given, but from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away. – Luke 19:26

Take time to reread the scripture passage from Sunday (Luke 19:11-27). Review your notes from the sermon. What is God bringing back to mind from His Word?

As we enter Black History month, listen in as Gabe adds one more nuance we wish we could have shared on Sunday.

    Gabe, let’s be real risk takers and speak out as often, as boldly and as passionately about the sanctity of human life and God’s plan for human sexuality as we do racism as problematic as that may be. The godless, progressive culture loves to leverage racism while slaughtering the unborn and promoting every form of sexual perversion forbidden in God’s Word. I will believe we are bold when we speak out regularly about all these things in depth and with equal boldness.

      Chip, your passion around those two important issues is evident. We agree they are important. For how we’ve sought to engage in those areas with with a biblical framework, please see our Human Sexuality paper (see link below), which we labored over for quite some time. May God continue to guide us. Simultaneously, we believe Jesus’ Kingdom agenda encompasses a whole host of important issues/causes/practices that the church should holistically engage driven by Jesus’ Gospel of the Kingdom (Luke 8:1). Let’s keep growing together!
