April 18 Sermon Notes
The Gospel at work
When the gospel takes root, it grows.
“We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all God’s people—the faith and love that spring from the hope stored up for you in heaven and about which you have already heard in the true message of the gospel that has come to you. In the same way, the gospel is bearing fruit and growing throughout the whole world—just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and truly understood God’s grace.” (Colossians 1:3-6)
The results of receiving the gospel: faith, love, and hope.
“work produced by faith”
“labor prompted by love”
“endurance inspired by hope”
(1 Thessalonians 1:3)
