The Crossroads (2 Corinthians 4:1-7)Tommy Boring, March 24, 2013
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
We have no right to let down on God. The harvest is great but the laborers are few. One is not to get saved and then sit back and not work. If you're not sowing it, then you can't grow it. God has employed us to do His work, but we sit back and do nothing for the check or even the bonus check. Are you keeping the great commandment, keeping God first, loving Him first and loving our neighbors as ourselves? Would you let someone walk off a cliff if you knew they were about to? One that is saved should be going out and teaching others about Christ. If you're not willing to work and do what God has said, then what are you looking for and want?

2 Corinthians 4:1-7
1Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not; 2But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God. 3But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: 4In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. 5For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake. 6For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. 7But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. (KJV)
