Humans love new things, and it seems we come by it honestly: God is all about new things, too. Pastor Josh Mutter’s message challenges us to renew our relationship with Christ, to say “yes” for the first time or, if we’ve already said “yes,” to follow Christ into a new and fresh “yes ” and into something better.
SAYING “YES” TO JESUS
Message by Josh Mutter – January 6, 2019
PROCLAIMING THE KINGDOM
Mark 1:14-15 After John was put in prison, Jesus went into Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God. “The time has come,” he said. “The kingdom of God has come near. Repent and believe the good news!”
- We respond to the message of the Kingdom by repenting
- We respond to the message of the Kingdom by believing
INVITATION TO FOLLOW
Mark 1:16-20 As Jesus walked beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” At once they left their nets and followed him. When he had gone a little farther, he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John in a boat, preparing their nets. Without delay he called them, and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men and followed him.
WHAT ABOUT US?
- How am I hearing Jesus’ invitation to “follow me”?
- What is keeping me from saying “yes” to Jesus?
- What is the new life that Jesus is inviting me into?
