LESSONS FROM THE LIFE OF SAINT PATRICK

LESSONS FROM THE LIFE OF SAINT PATRICK 2 - THE RESCUE OF EUROPE

JAKE STIMPSON | SAINT PATRICK | IRELAND | MISSIONS | MONKS | CHURCH HISTORY | CELTIC CHRISTIANITY

What happened in Europe after Saint Patrick brought the Gospel to Ireland is one of the most fascinating stories in all of history. The Roman Empire had collapsed. Barbarian tribes had demolished cities, burned crops, destroyed libraries, and chased away the military, government officials, philosophers, teachers, and priests. European civilization was on the brink of collapse. But along came the Irish monks, preaching the Good News and a love of learning. “Monks began to set off in every direction, bent on glorious and heroic exile for the sake of Christ. They were warrior-monks, of course, and certainly not afraid of whatever monsters they might meet.” It is because of the hard work of these Irish monks – some of them a bit crazy – that European civilization survived and Christianity spread to countless unreached Barbarian tribes.

PREACHING THE GOSPEL 1 - THE GOSPEL IS THE ANSWER

JAKE STIMPSON | PREACHING THE GOSPEL | GREAT COMMISSION | ROMANS 1 | ROMAN EMPIRE

What would you do if you lived under a tyrannical government with corrupt leaders who demanded your absolute obedience? Leaders who emptied the treasury for their own perverse pursuits, leaders of such moral depravity and brutal violence that it would shock even the most hardened heart? What would you do if the people around you were indifferent to suffering, if right and wrong didn’t mean anything anymore, if the whole world seemed to have gone mad all at once? That’s the world into which Jesus launched His church with a simple command – preach the Gospel. If the Gospel was the answer in the first century, the Gospel is still the answer today. Church, we need to get serious about proclaiming what Jesus has done.
