Chris Hidges - Innovate Day 2

Chris Hodges
Roundtable discussions – “up close”

What’s going on in the inside is more important than what’s going on on the outside
This is the gospel
We must ask for a transformation to occur in our preaching

Don’t teach people to be faithful but preach the way to become faithful

Not just what they did but what they were becoming through church planting

We would rather deal with religion than the transformation of the inner-man
Hebrews 8
Matthew 23:27

I must maintain a healthy inside
3 things to focus on for inside (3 internal motivations)
1. Loving life
Today – live it, love it (2 Corinthians 6:10)
Do I love life today?

2. Loving people
We need to get it back – you can’t fake it
1 Thessalonians 2
Do you love people?

3. Loving God
Are you in love with God (passion)
Fiddler on the Roof (Do you love me?)
Do you love God?
