It's Time to Stand Fast in the Gospel
It's Time to... (Message #1)
Philippians 1:27
Introduction:
It’s time to put the pedal to the metal!
It’s time to make church about Jesus!
It’s time to brag on Jesus!

Starting today and for the next four Sundays, we will look at what Sharon Church should be about!
1.Stand fast in the Gospel
2.Follow Jesus
3.Love Others
4.Reach the Lost
5.Bear the burden of others

Many church members are like prosperity gospel preachers. They will have a testimony of faith and mention the name of Jesus a couple of times, but church is all about me, me, me.

It’s about being POSITIVE that church and God are here to make me happy and for me to succeed in getting what I want. (Name your blessing, speak your blessing into being…this is contradictory to Philippians 1:29)
Church is about JESUS AND MAKING MUCH OF HIM!!!
