Title: Carrying Fire
Text: 2 Timothy 2:1-7
Topic: It’s About More Than Simply Surviving
Teacher: David Gooding
What if only one person in the world knew how to make fire? If we needed to cook something or heat something or forge something, then we had to go to this person to get the fire. That person would be pretty important wouldn’t they? But what if something happened to that person? Without them, we’d be lost.
If we can understand how ridiculous it would be for only one person to know how to make fire then why do we treat the gospel the same way. Within the Church we’ve relegated the “work” of ministry to the professionals and created a dependency on these folks to do all the “work.” But Jesus had a different idea for His Church; a Church where we all carry the fire.
