Today we had a guest speaker as Pastor Mike and his family have taken a vacation. Brian Aust of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship visited us today with a message.
Reference text: Luke 18:18-30 NIV
““Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good—except God alone.”
Luke 18:19 (NIV)
“When Jesus heard this, he said to him, “You still lack one thing. Sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.””
Luke 18:22 (NIV)
- He didn’t love God above everything else.
“Those who heard this asked, “Who then can be saved?””
Luke 18:26 (NIV)
“The older I live and the more I know Jesus, the more I realize how sinful I am.”
“In the same way, those of you who do not give up everything you have cannot be my disciples.”
Luke 14:33 (NIV)
The paradox of the gospel: salvation is a free gift, but truly following Jesus costs our life.
