SERMON NOTES


SUMMER AT AGAPE – The Enemy of Convenience
KEY SCRIPTURES: Matthew 4:18-22; Mark 6:34-44; Matthew 6:24 (NLT); Revelation 2:1-5; Mark 16:20; Matthew 14:14

 

Our flesh fights fiercely for CONVENIENCE because it does not impose on our personal freedom
The opposite of CONVENIENCE is SACRIFICE
CONVENIENCE is nothing more than the worship of SELF!

 

THE COST OF CONVENIENCE

  1. I’ll never see MIRACLES because my goal is to make sure that people know how to fulfill their OWN NEEDS!
  2. I’ll never become a NEW CREATION because the temperature is rising on the thermometer of THIS IS GOOD ENOUGH!
  3. I’ll feel FULFILLED because I did all the right stuff but I forgot THE REASON for doing all the right stuff
  4. I’ll never hear God say “WELL DONE, GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT” because the COST OF FINISHING was TOO GREAT!

 

THE OPPOSITE OF CONVENIENCE IS…

  1. PASSION
  2. COMPASSION
