Love and Obedience

Reset

Obedience to Jesus is the true sign of our love for him. When he is the highest priority in our lives, we will obey. When he’s not the highest priority, we often won’t obey…or we will do so sporadically according to our whims and wishes. Like Peter, Jesus is after our hearts: “We might think that God wanted simply obedience to a set of rules: whereas He really wants people of a particular sort.” (C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity) He wants all of you…not just part of you. As Jesus told the church in Ephesus – returning to our first love begins by obeying him. There aren’t any shortcuts.

Scripture References: Matthew 26:1-75, John 21:1-25

From Series: "Reset"

One year ago, on March 15, 2020, church doors across the nation were shut. As we adapted to sheltering in place, many of us continued our worship online. Many more of us dropped out. In the course of the past year have you felt as though your day to day relationship with Christ is stuck on autopilot? Or maybe serving God has lost its luster as you sense it growing more going-through-the-motions and less meaningful. When it comes to your relationship with Jesus, have you lost the exciting and motivating first love you once enjoyed? In this sermon series, "Reset", Dr. Jim Mann shares the good news that what's been lost can be found. Join us as we restore the fire and conviction of your first love for Jesus as we learn His character, His glory, and His love for us.
