TITLE: User Friendly Church
TEXT: 1 Peter 3:8-11
PROPOSITION: This church must learn to be “user friendly.”
KEY WORD: Methods
SCRIPTURE READING: Same
We don’t know each other
Some things hinder us
Fear – Embarrassed that we don’t know them, remember their name
Failed fellowship – We don’t know each other
Focused on self – my needs are more important than anything else
Fall short of personal responsibility – Not job of preacher and elders
False dignity – aloofness, self-righteous, they are not my type (dirty, long hair)
Forget how it feels – Think about places you have visited – how treated, good / bad; friendly / not friendly; what you liked / did not like
Let’s make sure this church is “user friendly"
Let’s make sure our heart (mind) is friendly.
