The Church on Offense, first part
As God’s prophet, Elijah repeatedly risked his life in being faithful to God’s call. In 1 Kings 19:1-16, Elijah had had enough, and he let God know it. In John 6:60-71, many of Jesus’ disciples had had enough of his call for total commitment, and let Jesus know it by walking away. Gary Martin’s sermon, The Church on Offense, invites us to rethink the church’s purpose in God’s Reign.
