3/22/09 Pastor Joey's last sermon at Eastside Community Church: DON'T SHRINK BACK !!
Matt 16:18 Jesus builds His Church and Hell cannot stop it!! The Church is unstoppable! Jesus brings us together to build His Church and spread the Gospel. The local church is the Hope of the World! Only two things will last: the Word and mankind. We are the hope of the world and we are to spread the gospel to build God's Kingdom.
Hebrews 10:38-39 The just shall live by faith. We are NOT of those who shrink back. We are people who move forward, believe and ARE saved.We need to tell satan that we will not shrink back.
Matt 11:12 The kingdom moves forward and we are to make sure we are forcefully advancing the Kingdom of God.
God first loved us and sent Jesus to die on the cross for us. God loved us so we should love Him and show this love by spreading the Word!! The bible says to take the good news to a dying world. Satan wants us to be quiet and low key and to not make a diference in other's lives. DON'T SHRINK BACK!!
People's eternal souls are at stake! The Church is the ultimate force that is to force itself on satan's kingdom and get souls saved!! We are to fight to take the ground for Jesus!! Its a righteous fight that is already won. We already have the victory! We just need to just go in and take it!
****As Long As We Keep Moving Forward and Are Obeying God, We Are Unstoppable!!!! ****
