    A Woman and a Disciple

    A Woman and a Disciple

    This sermon is based on Luke 10:38-42. You can also view each week's sermon/worship service on our YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5ncsq_QNvCv61bIwKUpP5A





    SERIES OVERVIEW:

    Usually, when we say that a person is an individual after our own heart, it is because we have seen similarities to things that we enjoy. A man who loves coffee is a man after my own heart. A woman who loves movies is a woman after my own heart. Anyone who loves big dogs is a person after my own heart. But is Jesus a man after my own heart? Or more to the point: Is he a man after your own heart? In all honesty, I am not so sure that Jesus and I have that much in common. Don’t get me wrong, I really, really like Jesus and I am so thankful for all that he has done for me; but if hard pressed, I am not so sure that I could say that I love Jesus with all of my heart, soul, mind and strength. Again, I like him a lot, but I fear my desire falls short of love. I wish it was otherwise, but Jesus is not a man after my own heart. But make no mistake about it. Jesus is after my own heart. He wants us to love him with our whole being and not just our heads. And here’s the good news: he is relentless in the pursuit of our hearts and love. He “IS” a God after our own hearts. How do we know that? Because time and time again in the gospels, we see Jesus reach out to individuals and touch them with grace with the result being they loved him. Maybe we can learn to do the same.

    The Knack of Sharing the Gospel, Part 3

    The Knack of Sharing the Gospel, Part 3

    This sermon is based on 2 Corinthians 5:18-21. You can also view each week's sermon/worship service on our YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5ncsq_QNvCv61bIwKUpP5A





    SERIES OVERVIEW:



    Let’s be honest: for most of us, the idea of sharing the good news of Jesus with our friends is really bad news. Talking about spiritual issues with those around us is a sure way to lose friends and annoy people. But again and again, we are called to be Jesus’ witnesses to those around us (I know, that’s more bad news). But what if we could develop a skill (what some may call a “knack”) that makes witnessing less of a chore and more of a relationship? What if evangelism wasn’t trying to get someone to sign on the dotted line, but rather, loving the people God puts in our path? And what if we could learn these skills so that we could have a knack of engaging in spiritual conversations or a knack of asking penetrating questions or a knack of inviting people to seek God. And all of this is something we can learn and develop. Evangelism: it’s the knack of loving people so that they find God. Now, that’s good news.
