ONE – Week 3

 

 

KEY SCRIPTURE – John 17:20-23 (NIV); 2 Corinthians 5:18-20 (NIV); Luke 9:51-56 (NASB)

 

 

God’s primary way of working in the world is through people, His Church, who are LED by the Holy Spirit and EMPOWERED by the Holy Spirit.

 

We WILL NEVER have a UNITED NATION if we do not have a UNITED CHURCH.

STEP ONE: WE HAVE TO OWN THE PROBLEM

STEP TWO: ACCEPT THAT WE (THE CHURCH) ARE CALLED TO RECONCILE PEOPLE TO GOD AND EACH OTHER

STEP THREE: DO THE HARD WORK OF GAINING UNDERSTANDING

  • GROUPING – The way we sort people into either “like me” or “not like me”
  • Like Me = IN Group; Not Like Me = OUT Group
