Below are links to 3 videos from one of the most powerful sermons I have heard in a long time. It is from Glenn Packiam. This sermon is about how to live like a Christian. If you live like a Christian… then you are living in opposition to the world. You don’t need a sign to show people that you are different. If people know you, they should be able to tell by the words you speak and the things you do that you are different.
I really identified with the NFL metaphor he uses. There are times as a Christian, that I feel like a Bronco fan… sitting at an Oakland Raiders game… in Oakland. I feel like this because I am a graduate student, and if you are in academics then being a Christian means “I automatically lose 50 points off my IQ and that I hate everyone.”
But honestly, I don’t hate homosexuals (but I believe homosexuality is a sin). I don’t hate people who drink (because I also drink) but I believe alcohol in excess is a sin. People who know me know that I am a Christian… but it is not easy to live the life of a Christian because it immediately puts me in opposition to the “world.”
If you have time, I sincerely hope you will check out some of the videos below from Glenn Packiam’s sermon. To me it was one of the best messages I have heard in a few years. I saw it live when I when I was in Colorado.
If you enjoy the message below… share it with others!
Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen. New International Version (NIV)
