Collegiate Chapel - March 8, 2017
This morning, Daniel Ethridge, worship pastor at Liberty Greenbrier, had another opportunity to address the student body at GCA. Working through 2 Corinthians 4:5, Pastor Ethridge exposited the verse, word by word, using visual aids to break up the single verse into four distinct, unified ideas. First, he made the clear point that every person “preaches,” or proclaims, one of two things: themselves or Jesus Christ. Second, Pastor Ethridge challenged everyone to consider whether or not they follow Christ as Lord of their lives. He pointed out that even the demons know Christ, they just do not submit to His authority. Therefore, a true Christian knows God personally and submits daily to His leadership. Third, Pastor Ethridge encouraged those who may question their salvation to simply start walking with Jesus now! He pointed out that we live in a world in which people are in constant competition because they live only for themselves. On the contrary, as the Apostle Paul stated, those who follow Christ are slaves to Christ and are no longer living life for themselves but for Christ. Pastor Ethridge summed up his message by stating that a Christian should proclaim this truth in every facet of his or her life so that those who associate with them will ultimately find their Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ!
