Sermon Recap from September 30

Luke 14:25-35

Audio Link here (alternate here)

Subject:


     Following Christ has a greater cost going forward than we often imagine

Central Theme:

You cannot stay close to Jesus and remain anonymous: Scott Duvall


     The grace of God is unilateral. The life of a disciple is not.


Objective Statement:


     Every person that follows Christ must  pay a cost.

Rationale:

     1. That cost does not buy us grace: grace is gifted by God and CANNOT BE BOUGHT

     2. That cost is rather charged by the world to us.

Responses:


     It will cost those who crave the approval of family and friends over the approval of Christ

     It will cost those who crave the trappings of this world

     It will cost those who crave the security of their lives

     It will cost those who crave to call things their own

     It will cost those who crave to pass through life without stinging a few and unchanged

Implementation:


1. Prayer cards:

     A. One thing that you want to see happen in yourself in the coming 40 days

     B. One thing that you want to see happen in this church in the coming 40 days

     C. One thing that you want to see happen in your family in the coming 40 days

2. Prayer Cards: other side

     A. One person that you need to be more like Christ in your relationship with

     B. One person that you need to share the love of Christ with

     C. One person that you need to be reconciled to
