Deeper Into Discipleship

We live in a day of “casual Christianity”  (we want the crown without the cross).  But God wants and needs us to be faithful disciples.  This message looks at the true cost of discipleship.  A discipleship is willing the follow  God’s plan.  A disciple is willing the  pay the cost  (Take up the cross).  A disciple knows that life without Jesus is  meaningless.

    The Really Good Samaritan

    Today we will seek to find our place in this parable of the Good Samaritan.  Which character do we identify with?  Finding our place in the story hopefully help us hear and understand as Christians and as a church  God’s call for caring for and serving others.

    Asking, Seeking, Knocking…Continually!

    Jesus taught that as God’s children we can ask God to help us and hear us and He will.  We do not have to pester or tease or demand from God that He hear us. God actually seeks to be part of our lives. But…this does not mean that we do not need to be intentional in a prayer life. We do. Jesus’ words:  “ask, seek,  knock” are best understood as  “action” words…continually asking, continually seeking, continually knocking. In this way, we will CONTINUALLY find ourselves….as a church, and in our personal walks of faith…..continually in God’s will.

    What Do You Know About God?

    Jesus’ Parable of the Prodigal Son is most often heard in the context of the two sons: the one repentant son who returns home after years of wasted life; and the  faithful son who remained at home taking care of the family farm, who gets “angry” over the party thrown for his wayward brother.  Today, let’s hear it from the perspective that Jesus’ actually intended:  that of the Patient and Loving Father who has a plan for us as individuals and as a church.

    Where Are You Going with You Blessing?

    Luke records that Jesus pronounced healing upon ten lepers with instructions that they go and show themselves to the priest (according to Old Testament ritual).  All  ten went away…but one later returned to Jesus, thanking him for his healing.  The  key to this sermon….and for our lives of faith…is found in the question Jesus asks the healed man upon his return. Regarding the other nine, Jesus does not ask,  “Why are they not thankful?”.   Instead, he asks,  “Where are they?”  Only one healed leper takes his blessing and lays it at the feet of Jesus.  Hopefully, this will prompt us to ask “where are we going with our blessings?”

    What Can We Learn from a Thief?

    Dying beside Jesus on the cross, the penitent thief is pardoned and forgiven.  Without any life filled with good works,  without  any  ‘proof’ of goodness or worthiness, the thief find forgiveness in Christ.  If God could dare love and forgive him,  how much He love and forgive us?  What does that say about us?  As individuals? As a church?

    Church at Lydia’s House

    ‘What makes a church a church?’   As a faithful missionary for Christ,  the Apostle Paul started at church in Lydia’s home in Philippi. It was a place of welcome, love and understanding.  How can we grow to be more of a church like that?
