This Sunday at King's...

The Greeks could be quite insightful! Remember Narcissus, the handsome Greek youth who rejected the advances of Echo? As punishment, he was doomed to fall in love with his own reflection in a pool of water. Because his love for his own shaddow couldn’t be reciprocated, couldn’t deliver, he pined away. How sad. How reflective of our culture where love of self and the protection of ones rights drives much of what we do!

In our study of 1 Corinthins we have reached chapter 9 where we see Paul free to relinquish his rights for the sake of the Gospel. My title is ‘It’s not about ME!’.

Martyn Lloyd-Jones puts it like this: ‘Self is our last & most constant enemy; & it is the most prolific cause of all our unhappiness.’ So now for the good news…!!
See you Sunday,
