with a passion to worship God,
who care for one another
and bring God’s love into a broken world”
In this sermon we look at three stories of prominent disciples of Jesus. In the passion week, their faith in the Lord Jesus was tested intensely, and these three didn’t pass the test with flying colours. The three disciples are Judas, Peter and Thomas. Their names are closely associated with the scenes that we will look at today. In their stories we find disappointment, fear, shame and doubt. Yet, two of the three find restoration after the resurrection of Jesus.
This is part 3/3 in the The Generous Life series. Last week we talked about how to break the power of mammon over your life through generosity. We would like to finish with a final message about generous discipleship. As we are going to explore some Scriptures today, we will soon discover that the life Jesus is calling us to is a life of sacrifice for the King and for His Kingdom.
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.
