The Opposite of the Joel Osteen and Andy Stanley’s “Prosperity Gospel”
How to Abide in Christ Surrounded by a Culture at War with Christians
I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.
Do not be conformed to this world.
- Memorize the Bible in context to doctrine, bury it in your heart.
Cling to God through His Word.
- The Gospel
- We pray trusting God’s Will is done.
Apply – Hear and do
Know, Trust, Obey = Rest
REST! Leave your anxieties behind
28 “Come (in obedience) to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke (trust) upon you and learn from me (know), for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
4 You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
Ultimately it’s about participating in the great commission.
