Joy Happens Through Gospel Goal-Getters
Costless Christianity has bred a generation of people who call themselves Christian but have either no inclination or idea how to conduct themselves in a manner worthy of the gospel.
1. Are genuinely interested in your welfare (17-20)
Joy happens when unity happens; unity happens when we all put other’s interests before our own.
2. Put the interest of Christ before their own (21).
When what matters to you most is Christ, what matters to you next is people living Christ-like—“your faith.”
3. Are faithful and proven in ministry service; not flakey (22-25).
Fellow worker is not describing a pastime; fellow soldier is not describing a peace time.
Love the Lord/ brothers more than personal safety (26-30).
Gospel Goal-Getters are willing to give up the “safe” life so others can experience the saved life.
