About ten days ago, Matt Chandler preached the following sermon at Jubilee Church in London. In it he preaches the gospel, focusing in on the parable of the prodigal son from Luke’s gospel. Many readers will remember seeing Matt’s “Jesus wants the battered rose” illustration. If you want to see that illustration in context this is a good video. It is vital that Christian’s expose themselves to clear gospel teaching often. This talk will make fresh for you the wonderful good news of Jesus’ death and resurrection, and their glorious implications for us today. I encourage you strongly to watch this, and watch it often, and allow this man of God to minister good to your soul. Grace will conquer legalism every time, but only if we allow ourselves to be shaped by anointed preaching such as this. Are we like the older brother? Do we really want our churches to grow? Or would we rather they stayed a small cozy family caring for our needs? What would a missional church mean for you and me?
