Sermon Podcast: The Kingdom of Heaven has Come Near

DBCC podcast twinkies.jpg

Here’s the thing: All the bumper stickers laid end to end, all the Christian aerobics rooms stacked to the sky, all the handsome, grinning ministers in the world can’t make Jesus cool. Jesus isn’t cool—he’s God; the church’s job isn’t to sell him—it’s to live like him.

The gospel is pretty clear: Some will respond; some won’t.

Is it our job to help Jesus out so that more people will buy, so that we’ll get the results we think the gospel deserves?

No. Our job is to be a community capable of providing the resources necessary to equip disciples for the reign of God.
