Staying on Mission | I’m not sure we’re getting it… | August 18, 2019

 

“The Prominent” didn’t get it
 

Wait a Minute… What’s the Standard?
The Pharisees weren’t hostile yet
They were still watching Him closely
They weren’t sure what to make of Him 

Q: Are you still watching Jesus?

 

The Insiders didn’t get it
A guest was excited about the Feast to come
He assumed that he was invited 

Q: Are you expecting to go?

 

The Crowds didn’t get it
They followed Jesus without thinking about what it would cost to truly be His followers
It could cost in…
     Relationships
     Comfort, even their very lives
     Possessions

 

Do We really get it?
You can’t be a half-way disciple
Three times Jesus says “cannot be my disciple”
Can we enjoy our position in Christ, but ignore what He says?
Do we need a sign? How about this…
Jesus says, “Don’t be useless salt.”
James says, “Read and DO!… don’t be deceived!”

Staying on Mission | Pay Attention! (it will cost you) | August 11, 2019

Staying on Mission | Pay Attention! (it will cost you) | August 11, 2019

 

A Warning About Comfort
It will cost you
The world will reject you
Even the lower creatures will have it better
Are you willing?

 

A Warning About Priorities
Family obligations were very important
Where did they fall with Jesus?
Kingdom priorities are higher than family
What are your priorities?

 

A Warning About Commitment
What follows your “but” when committing to Jesus?
Elisha made the same request of Elijah
Does your plow have a rear-view mirror?

 

He IS Sending Us!
Remember the Great Commission?
It comes with authority
It is His plan
He already demonstrated it for us
He will be with us

 

Finish With a Football Story
When following JC commit like JJ
We have a limited amount of time

A Quick Summary & A Call to Action

What Now?
We should go… Matthew 28:19

We should HEAL…
     Are you serious?! Yes!!
     It’s His desire! Matthew 10:1; 6-8; 24-25

Why? (How would you answer this question?)

 

The Lord of the Harvest
Who is the Lord of the Harvest?
Who are His workers?
