The Little Flock Embraces the Kingdom – Herb Codington

2020-2-23 Main Sermon
Luke 12:32-33, Zephaniah 3:16-17, I Chronicles 12:32
Smaller churches –
1. Will we survive?
This concern can be an asset if we approach it in the right way
Causes us to lean hard on God
Causes us to cultivate a sense of urgency
Causes us to learn to minister from a posture of weakness
Makes us dependent on the one who is the source of all things
Will we fail?
God can take our failures and do something good with them. We need to be willing to step out and risk failure.
God offers us grace. It’s all about letting Him love you.
