What if Jesus actually meant the things he said?
That’s the theme behind our most recent teaching series.We’ve looked at the challenging statements of Jesus and considered their impact upon the lives we choose to live. Without a doubt, Jesus expected a change to our attitude and action as a result of our relationship with him.
Jesus expects more than just lip service from his followers. His statements make it crystal clear that his disciples think and behave very differently from the rest of the world. Any person whose beliefs and behavior have not been radically transformed has to question the validity of their commitment to Christ as Lord.
We will make one more visit to the challenges Jesus delivered this Sunday, July 27. The following Sunday, August 3, we will share the Lord’s Supper together.
On Sunday, August 10
I will begin a verse-by-verse study of the New Testament book of Colossians. This will build upon those challenging statements of Jesus. We will continue to be challenged.
Enjoy the summer. Take time for family. If you are in town I hope to see you Sunday.
