Acts 10:1-48

Acts 10:34Vintage message from January 12, 1997.

“How many times do we find ourselves living in sin but denying the very nature of that sin? You know, there are lots of things in our lives that God’s going to hold us accountable for, that we’ll say, ‘No, no, Lord. I’m not unclean!’ But yet He’ll call us to do something for someone and we’ll say, ‘No, I don’t want to do that because that person’s a sinner. I don’t want to associate with those kinds of people,’ but yet, in our very own lives, we have issues that are making us as much of a sinner as the person God wants us to go to…
The fact is that the things that we look at and see as dirty, the things that we look at and see as sinful, the things that we don’t want to associate with oftentimes are the very things that God wants us to go out to and deal with in people’s lives. We’re never going to see people saved if we’re afraid to go the sinners. We’re never going to see the unsaved give their lives over if we’re afraid of the sin they’re living in, if we’re afraid to associate with them, if we’re afraid to touch them. We have to change our standards oftentimes…
If we truly want to serve God, we need to be concerned about the things that God is concerned about.”
