What Are You Supposed to Do for God?

J. D. Greear:

You go into a progressive church… and what you walk away with is “You gotta recycle, you gotta feed the poor, you gotta take care of the earth.” You go into a conservative church and it’s more about “You gotta do missions, you gotta do your quiet time, you gotta do True Love Waits.” You go into seeker churches, and you walk out with… “5 Ways to Fix Your Life”. You go into a traditional church and you walk out with “This is what a real Christian looks like.”

Is there anything wrong with most of these? No. But anytime we preach a gospel that leaves people thinking about what they are supposed to do for God and not what God has done for them, we have preached a false gospel.
