The Kingdom of God was central to Jesus’ message but somehow it has gotten lost in the static of our lives. For something that Jesus talks so much about, it’s amazing how so many of us can lead lives of faith, go to church, study the bible, sing songs, and yet lose sight of the central core of who Jesus was and what He was talking about. In this message, Tom uses illustrations of frames, lists, dynamite and neighbours to talk about what it looks like to live full lives.
Message by Tom Fenske – January 22, 2017
FRAMES, LISTS, DYNAMITE AND NEIGHBOURS
We are most alive when we love God and love others.
Luke 10:25-28 One day an expert in religious law stood up to test Jesus by asking him this question: “Teacher, what should I do to inherit eternal life?” Jesus replied, “What does the law of Moses say? How do you read it?” The man answered, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind.’ And, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” “Right!” Jesus told him. “Do this and you will live!”
1. What is currently taking the place of God in your life? What values (leadership, education, financial security, family) rule your life?
2. What would it look like if you loved God the way you love your family/spouse/kids/hobby/job?
3. How would seeing others as having the same struggles as you reframe their value?
4. Who is God asking you to love this week?
