September 11, 2016 - Bearing His Disgrace - Hebrews 13:11-13

posted Sep 16, 2016, 10:19 AM by Grant Garber
  • There is a criticism leveled at the Gospel – even in a nominally Christian land.
    • There is a social isolation which Christians sometimes suffer.
    • Sometimes a believer suffers in their career because they identify with the Christian faith.
    • Sometimes Christians are actually made a butt of jokes because they have chosen to be a disciple of Jesus.
  • Don’t increase this criticism needlessly.
    • Don’t cultivate peculiarity.
    • Don’t be overcritical.
    • Never sever fellowship with other people if you can avoid it.
  • What happens if they still exclude us “from the camp” and treat us almost as if we’re exiles? What then?
    • Say to yourself, “This is not my disgrace. It is His! And rejoice that you are allowed to bear a bit of His shame!
Pastor Jim Spon | Hebrews 13:11-13
