The Gospel and Holiness

2011 RightNow Conference

This 60-minute session from the 2011 RightNow Conference is an opportunity for us to focus on how we unleash the power of the gospel in the people we lead. Matt Chandler, Leader Pastor of The Village Church in Flower Mound TX, reminds us that as we proclaim the gospel message, we must remain diligent in our pursuit of holiness.

As you watch, take notes and write down thoughts about how this message can impact your ministry.

As Matt described how we pursue right living—our grace-driven efforts—he was very candid in describing his policy of openness and confessions of he weaknesses. How are we doing as a team to create openness and accountability? How are we teaching others to pursue right living?

The gospel of Jesus Christ offers true freedom in life. Yet this gracious gift does not give us the license to sin. Jon’s story is an inspiring example of how no sin is too big for God’s grace to cover. His life was redeemed and God is using him now.

What mission are we unleashing the small business owners, accountants, schoolteachers, moms, dads and volunteers to do each week in the communities where they live and work?
