with a passion to worship God,
who care for one another
and bring God’s love into a broken world”
This is part 2/3 in the The Generous Life series. Last week we looked at Luke 6 where Jesus gives us this radical challenge. Today we will look at a different passage where He gives us a radical choice - you either serve God, or you serve mammon. You cannot divide your life up into little parts. You cannot just be a Christian in weekends and a secular person on weekdays. You cannot divide life up into material and spiritual, thinking that they aren’t connected. There is a clear choice, and you cannot do both.
We are starting a new message series that will run over three Sundays: The Generous Life. We are going to look at the life and teaching of Jesus around this topic. This Sunday we look at the topic of 'Understanding Generosity'. The level of generosity and love put into practice that Jesus is calling us to is baffling and will be a lifelong challenge for us.
Jonas takes us through the Bible on what living an Unreserved Christian Life means. Based on Luke 14:33 and Galatians 2:20 we look at what it means to hold nothing back and to give your all for the God's kingdom.
In this series, we are exploring the biblical metaphor of the vineyard. It runs throughout the Bible, both Old and New Testament as a symbol of God’s people and God’s Kingdom. After looking at the planting, pruning, growing and harvesting, we should not forget there should also come a time of enjoyment and celebration – the joy of wine. As vineyards are symbolic for a place of blessing and favor, wine is a Biblical symbol for joy. It’s connected to celebration and gladness and received out of God’s hand.
