Be like Paul #7: CRAZY
INTRODUCTION: We all need role models in the faith. In 1 Corinthians 4:16, Paul says ‘Therefore I urge you to imitate me.’ Now Paul may not seem the obvious choice as a role model. Paul’s had a bad press for some of the things he’s said, statements that have been taken out of context and used to promote prejudice and condemnation. However, Paul’s passion for the good news of the Jesus story can be an inspiration to us all and so this month, we’re using the ‘Be like Bob’ meme that went viral on Facebook last year as a framework for our journey through 2 Corinthians.
Be like Paul.
INSPIRATION: 2 Corinthians 5:11-6:2
THIS IS PAUL
Some people think that Paul is crazy.
He doesn’t care.
All that matters to him is spreading God’s message of reconciliation.
There’s a new way, a new life waiting out there for everyone!
BE LIKE PAUL
VERSE OF THE DAY:
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 2 Corinthians 5:17
