Do Not Love the World (1 John 2:15-17)
CrossWay Community Church
August 2nd, 2020
The world doesn’t need us. The world needs Christ.
The world doesn’t need our denominations, political opinions, convictions, upbringing, applications, preferences, or lifestyles.
The world doesn’t need our tracts, music standards, choir numbers, dress codes, or favored Bible translations.
It doesn’t need our Christian T’s, WWJD’s, bumper stickers, or Jesus fish on the back of our families’ mini vans.
The world doesn’t need our problems, our disunity, our arguments, our judgments, our hypocrisy, our seclusion, our water-downed, easybelievism gospel, our unfriendliness, our lack of compassion, our formality, our legalism, our irrelevance, or our insignificance.
. . . And neither do we.
