I Corinthians 8 and 9

Unless we're tied to the love of God we won't be tied to the mission of God.

We see this biblical truth - as we continue our Church of Scoundrels series - as Paul writes to teach and demonstrate that in order to be all things to all people, that by all means some might be saved we may often be called to give up parts of our Christian liberty for love. When we see the kind of love that good pastors and church leaders have for us - but so much more - when we see the kind of love that God has for us in Christ who gave up all his rights and privledges, then we will become tied to that love of God and to the mission of God as well.
