Excuses in the Kingdom sermon video. As Jesus was on his way to Jerusalem, he encountered three individuals who gave him nothing but excuses concerning following him and furthering the kingdom of God. From these three individuals we draw the positions many of us find ourselves. At one time or another we each give excuses as did these three.

Excuses in the Kingdom sermon video

Scriptures: LUKE 9:51-62, Mark 2:1


We live in a day of another gospel. Paul warned the Corinthians and the Galatians of those who preach another gospel (2Co 11:4; Gal 1:6). Many today want to call down fire and consume all those who do not believe as they believe or burn those who will not receive Jesus. Isn’t it interesting that Jesus said to these of this attitude, ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. Jesus did not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them. What a total contradiction of the gospel we hear today. The call down fire theology is definitely not the gospel of the kingdom.

These people Samaritans, not Jews. The Samaritan people were a blend of all nations much as the United States is today. God is not interested in destroying. He is interested in saving. If we are in a destroying mind set then we know not what manner of spirit we are of.

People do not need assistance in destroying their lives. People do not need assistance from God to call down fire upon their self. Our job and purpose is to get the life turned around in time to stop the destruction. We are not here to destroy men’s lives, but to save them. sermon notes and audio
