Change My Mind: Wrong Thinking Righted

May 23, 2021 | John Durham

Passage: Acts 11:1-18

ACTS 11:1-18  TO ACCOMPLISH HIS SOVEREIGN PURPOSE OF SALVATION, GOD HAD TO CHANGE WRONG THINKING IN HIS PEOPLE

  1. GOD’S SOVEREIGN PURPOSE IS THE SALVATION OF PEOPLE FROM EVERY NATION.

- HIS SALVATION IS HIS MISSION AND HIS DOING, BUT GOD USES US IN THE PROCESS.

- IF WE’RE NOT FOR THE GOSPEL IN ALL  NATIONS, WE’RE NOT INVOLVED IN GOD’S PURPOSE.

-THE LOCAL CHURCH SHOULD BE RACIALLY AND CULTURALLY DIVERSE.


  1. IT IS EASY TO BRING WRONG THINKING INTO THE CHRISTIAN LIFE.
  • WRONG THINKING: HUMAN TRADITIONS ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN BIBLICAL TRUTHS.
  • WRONG THINKING: THE CHURCH SHOULD CONSIST OF PEOPLE LIKE ME.
  • WRONG THINKING: GOD HAS TO DO THINGS MY WAY.

 

  1. GOD CHANGES OUR WRONG THINKING SO THAT WE CAN JOIN HIM IN HIS WORK.

- GOD CHANGES US AS WE WALK WITH HIM.
-GOD CHANGES US BY PUTTING US IN UNCOMFORTABLE CIRCUMSTANCES
-GOD CHANGES US BY REPEATING HIS LESSONS. 
-GOD CHANGES US THROUGH HIS WORD.
-GOD CHANGES US BY REMINDING US THAT HE IS SOVEREIGN AND WE ARE LIMITED.
-GOD CHANGES US SO HE CAN USE US IN GREATER WAYS TO FULFILL HIS SOVEREIGN PURPOSE.
