THE E-MERGING CHURCH SERIES – PART 2

PROGRESS OR IRRELEVANCE 

FACT: Relevance Is The Reach Of Our Ripple Effect! (Matt. 4:24-25) 

QUESTION: How Far Is Our Ripple Effect? 

1. A TIME FOR INTELLIGENT FIRE:  

a. Principled Fire:  

  • Principles, (Not Values) That Align With This World, (Luke 16:8).  
  • We Must Use Common Tools Anointed By Our Unique Tools, (Isa. 10:27). 

b. Structural Fire:   

  • We Must Embrace The Truth That Structure Is First! (Ezek. 37:7-10). 
  • Bones Before Flesh =Structure Before Substance. 
  • Flesh Before Wind =Substance Before Spirit. 
  • Key: God Breathes Life Into Structured Things! (Gen. 2:7).  

c. Governed Fire:  

  • We Must Embrace Governance As Precious Gift, (1 Cor. 12:28).  
  • Alignment = Everyone In Their Place, (1 Cor. 7:20,24).  
  • Action = Everyone Within Their Capacity, (Matt. 25:14-15).  
  • Accountability = Everyone Under Someone, (Matt. 8:9-10).  

THE HURDLE: Chaos Is Doing What I Want To Do, (Judges 21:25). 

THE TRUTH: Progress Is The Fruit Of Order, (1 Cor. 14:40). 

PRAYER: LORD, LET THIS FIRE FALL!
