We live in a world and within a culture that teaches us to put ourselves first. We are told often and loudly that it is our wants, desires, truth, and happiness that should take priority over everything else. The Bible, however, teaches a very different worldview, one that is entirely counter-cultural to this type of thinking. According to the Bible, it’s Jesus who should be our focus and priority. The writers of the New Testament and early disciples understood this. Their time with Jesus helped see their lives as a small piece in a much larger work of God. What about us as Jesus followers today? What could our world look like if we, as Christians, shifted our perspective and we all began actively placing Jesus as our most important priority? What could our own lives look like if we listened to Jesus more and listened to ourselves less? In this series, we will spend four sessions looking into God's Word and what it has to teach us about making more of Jesus and less of ourselves.
Four Letter Words: Learning To Make More Of Jesus And Less Of Ourselves
Four-Letter Words: Learning To Make More Of Jesus And Less Of Ourselves, a four-session sermon series, will challenge your students to shift their perspective on the priorities in their life and ask the questions: What could our faith look like if we actively put Jesus in the number one spot in our life? What could God do in us and through us if we began placing everything we want secondary to everything God wants for us?
