Living on The Edge
Living on the Edge
John 17:18 - "As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world."
How to live far from the edge:
Withdrawing for civilization. Trying no to be apart of the world that Satan rules over. We could live in a "Christian bubble" , but when will we go out into the world to share the word of Jesus? Jesus didn't just say come, but he also said "Go"! We are the light of the word therefore go be that light and shine on someone who needs Jesus. I am equip to go out and share. Espehians
Something that they can grow if they follow the rules. You don't start with the spirit and roll by the flesh. You see and walk in Jesus by faith. Rules are worldly. When saved we have rules. Why? Because it is for safety. Judgement to others is the tell tell sign of legalism. Always pointing the finger at someone and pointing out their flaws.
You aren't loving people you are hating people. You are not walking in humidity but in pride.
We as Christians tend to go with the flow of the world. We tend to camouflage with non believers. We aren't on a mission (sharing the gospel) we went AWOL.
How to live on the edge:
1. Go like Jesus
Be engaged with society. Go out with the mission upfront. Be a servant. Seek opportunities to share the gospel. Never compromise! Never sin! We are to go has Jesus went.
2. Be distinct like Jesus
2 characteristics: message and character. Be set apart in the truth. DO WHAT THE GOSPEL SAYS! Go out an make disciples. Give credit to God always. Religion says to live in the flesh and live your normal life and make some cosmetic changes. Religion makes changes from the outside in, the gospel says to make changes from the inside out. To receive the gospel, I am to humble myself.
