Matt Chandler – “Core Values” series – “What is Christian spirituality?” sermon #2, 4/19/08
Teaching is based on 1 Corinthians 12:1-11

1. Movement comes out of the gospel penetrating people’s hearts.

  • The gospel is better than life.
  • Matt lists many people in his congregation that are doing an amazing variety of activities for the world.

2. What if there’s no movement in your heart?

      • That’s a whole other series of sermons.
      • You could be confused about what the gospel is, trying to do this yourself.
      • There might be bitterness and unforgiveness in your heart.
      • There could be anger.
      • There could be hurt. You’ve been punched in the soul.
      • There could be a sin issue that’s blatant and you’re keeping it a secret.
    • Recovery: discipleship on steroids; open, honest, getting to heart issues.
    • The more you know Jesus the less power these things will have, any problem will become less when you know Him more.
  • Worshiping petty things.
    • The gospel and the guy that’s out there in his armchair worshiping petty things. That’s why we do what we do when the gospel penetrates our hearts.
