Title: Dangerous Calling

Suffering was the means by which the gospel of the Kingdom of God was established and it is the means of its continued proclamation.

 

1 – Paul’s Suffering
  • Paul’s Sarcasm (11:16-21). Paul’s boats in his weakness because the power of the gospel is in the sufferings of Jesus.

  • Description of Paul’s suffering, general and specific (11:22-33)
  • Danger, danger, danger (11:26)
2 – Jesus’ Suffering
3 – Our Dangerous Calling
  • Like Paul, we carry the same commission to go into all the world and proclaim the kingdom of God.
  • This requires us to lay aside our comfort and safety as we proclaim the Kingdom of God to a broken world through service and sacrifice.
