Does Amos 9.11-15 seem strange to you?

Two Major Problems
1. most of us do not speak the gospel
2. those who do speak it know a partial gospel

Importance of Getting the Gospel Right
- Is the gospel like a paint color or a medical diagnosis?
- It is a matter of life and death (Galatians 1.6-9; 2 Timothy 1.7-10)
- the gospel is the pill of immortality, washed down with faith

Three Elements
1. kingdom (Matthew 4.23; 5.5; 6.9-10)
2. cross (1 Corinthians 15.3; Romans 5.8)
3. resurrection (1 Corinthians 15.4)

Four Reasons the Kingdom Matters
1. it is God's idea
2. it was Jesus' primary focus
3. it is gospel
4. promotes stewardship

Satan attacks the believing of the gospel (2 Corinthians 4.3-4; Matthew 13.19; Luke 8.12)

But just knowing isn't enough!
1. believe
2. repent
3. persevere
