It's Time for a Change

2 Corinthians 5:16-19


It's Time to Change:

  1. The way we see others. (v 16) - We need to see the human being in need of a savior.
  2. The way we see ourselves. (v 17)  You are a child of God, an heir and a saint.
  3. The way we see our mission. (v 18-19)  People will be able to worship and fellowship in heaven forever.  We will only be able to evangelize now!

We have to be convinced of:

  1. The "lostness" of others without Jesus. John 3:16,18
  2. Others need for Jesus. John 14:6
  3. That we must be the ones to share Jesus. Mark 16:17

The Three "Greats"

  2. The Great Commandments Mark 12:28-31
  3. The Great Confession - Matthew 16:13-16

We cannot fulfill the Great Commision unless we have started to fulfill the Great Commandments which begins with the Great Confession.
