OBEDIENCE! We love it in other people… just not so much for ourselves! We want our kids to OBEY… we train our dogs to OBEY... but when it is OUR TURN to OBEY - our first reaction is to say… “You’re not the boss of me!” We don’t want someone else to take away our freedom! Jesus tells us that when it comes to OBEYING GOD - we don’t really lose our freedom… we actually gain His Love! (So…) If you want a deeper experience of God’s Love for You - then please consider joining us on a three-week journey as we discover a few things on BEcoming the Heart - Hands and Voice of Jesus – in a new series we’re calling O“BE”DIENT! We’ll see you Sunday!
Sunday Snapshot… (1) BE His Heart (Pastor Ben Gores)
Jesus starts with LOVE then moves to OBEDIENCE… not the other way around!
“Discipleship is the process of becoming WHO JESUS WOULD BE if HE WERE YOU!” (Dallas Willard)
“It is what we THINK God is like that will determine the RELATIONSHIP we have with Him!” (James Bryan Smith)
When we choose to OBEY God’s Commandswe are not LOSING OUR FREEDOM - we are GAINING GOD'S LOVE!
When you KNOW that YOU ARE LOVED - that is when “OBEY” isn’t a “HAVE TO” it is a “WANT TO!"
The Branch's ONLY JOB is to STAY CONNECTED to the VINE! (Meaning...) You're ONLY JOB as a Believer is to STAY CONNECTED TO JESUS!
See You Sunday Celebrators… (9a / 10:45a)
