Speak the Truth
God’s kingdom is founded on truth. If we believe that our faith is true, then we should be committed to speaking truth to one another. How can we commit to truth today? The sermon text comes from Ephesians 4:14-25. This is the second sermon in our series, The Kin-dom of God. No, it’s not a typo. The Gospels frequently have to explain that the kingdom of God is like because we can’t see past our own political expectations. In this series, we are going to hear how God creates a diverse, new kin in Christ that breaks down the dividing walls between different tribes and parties. In a season of political divisions, choose to live in God’s healing kin-dom. Sermon preached by Pastor Dallas Flippin at the First Baptist Church of Jackson, MI on Sunday, October 25, 2020.
