Sermon for Week Six of The Gospel Primer: Two Lenses…

It is when we grasp and wrestle with the Two Lenses of Gospel Power and Gospel Purpose that we have a gospel that places our salvation squarely on the work of Jesus on the Cross and sends us out to be his body, his family of redemption and restoration in the world.

Sermon for week three of our eight-week guide to transformation in community:

Your Gospel Story

The Story of God answers big questions in our life, very importantly it tells us who we are, whose we are, and what we are here for. And how we tell our own personal story should also help others begin to look to God and his Story for those same answers in their life. God is the HERO of every story!


We live in an age where desire is god. Where I want what I want when I want it. If I am living life with God, there are times I say, “No.” I will not allow others to exalt their desires to the ultimate place in life and then expect me to conform to those desires.

As I receive the Holy Spirit and trust in God, I die to my desire to be liked, my desire to receive your approval. I die to the idea that what I want has any importance at all. It’s not what I want, it is what God wants…
