Preacher: Pastor Mike Sager

Series: The Cost of Following Jesus

Category: Weekend Sermons

Notes:

For the next three weeks we are going to be focusing on the cost of following Jesus. The call to have faith in Jesus is more than believing that he will save us; it is the belief that the way Jesus invites us to live our lives is salvation itself. In this week’s text there are choices to be made between the demands and expectations of life with the call to follow into unknown situations. How is trusting the ways of Jesus revealed and how do they live out in your own life? In today’s world, being a social media influencer is big business with huge pay-offs. Most influencers need at least 40,000 followers before a company is willing to begin to pay for their posts. Influencers are nothing new… movie stars, sport figures, famous people have always had impacts on how other people live and think about a particular subject. The work of the rabbi was to be an influencer over the lives of their disciples – teaching them how to navigate the challenges and opportunities of life. While Jesus continues to be an influencer, he is more than that, for he not only provides the ways of life, but he is also life itself.   So daily we are left with the struggle to continuously choose to follow this new way of life revealed in Jesus compared to the way so many others invite us to live.

Dig deeper:

Reflect on how the way of life Jesus calls us to live influences how you live your life each day.
