As followers of Jesus, it is a challenge to live in this culture without being swallowed up by its distractions. Pastor Josh Mutter continues with his message series, Who Am I?
WHO AM I?
Message by Josh Mutter – November 18, 2018
I DON’T BELONG
Matthew 6:19-24 NIV
“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
“The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!
“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.
1. What do you spend your free time thinking about?
2. What do you spend your money on?
3. What are you really living for?
1 Peter 2:11-12 NIV Dear friends, I urge you, as foreigners and exiles, to abstain from sinful desires, which wage war against your soul. Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us.
The way we live out our day to day lives matters because it is one way that those who are not yet followers of Jesus are able to see Jesus for themselves.
1. Embrace the knowledge that part of who you are is that you do not belong.
2. Get to know the culture that you do belong to as a follower of Jesus.
3. Remember that the reason we do not belong is not just about us.
