Living the Gospel Together: The Priority of the Church

Timothy 2:1-15                   March 23, 2014                 Link for audio/video/manuscript

Prayer is to be the preeminent priority activity in the life of anyone who claims to be a follower of Jesus Christ. Prayer realizes the great purpose that God desires men and women from every people, language, tribe and nation might come to know the joy and the glory of salvation through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. But the way we conduct ourselves in prayer has everything to do with the cause of the gospel. Our attitude in our prayer and in our conduct must be one of humble respect. The impact of the church upon the world comes about when men and women walk in the character, in the conduct, and in the roles that God has prescribed for them. The power of the church is dependent on the priority of prayer of the church - which is dependent on the priority of how we each fulfill our God-given roles in our marriages, in our families and in our church
