Living Word Christian Church

INTRODUCTION

Christianity in the 21st century, in a DEMOCRATIC environment, hardly feels the imminent danger it carries. This is because democracy touts FREEDOM of RELIGION and FREEDOM of SPEECH. 1st century Christianity however meant living in a CLEAR & PRESENT
DANGER. It is this THREAT that Jesus warns and calls His disciples to RESPOND to.

I see THREE RESPONSES to this danger

BODY SERMON

TEXT: Matthew 10: 16 – 20

1. THE DANGEROUS MEN & THEIR CHARACTER – Be wise! (v.16)

2. THE DANGEROUS MEN & THEIR ACTION – Grab the opportunity! (vv. 17 – 18)

3. THE DANGEROUS INTERROGATION – Speak up! (vv. 19 – 20)

CONCLUSION

Jesus has COMMISSIONED us to preach the gospel, but He is not offering a rosy, storm-free life and ministry. There are DEMANDS and DANGERS in the fulfillment of our duties.
