We have to be willing to change. Pastor Luke bring us this message about letting go of the “couches” in our lives. (He’ll explain)
Sermon: Embracing Change
Date: November 18
He never changes
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
2 Corinthians 5:17
Anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!
We are the clay and You are the potter.
– Teacher, what good deed must I do to have eternal life?
– I’ve obeyed all these commands. What else must I do?
– go and sell all your possessions and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then, come, follow me. But when the young man heard this, he went away sad, for he had many possessions.
Now Repent of your sins and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped away.
Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
Where there is no vision, people cast off restraint.
1 Corinthians 9:19-23 MSG
Even though I am free of the demands and expectations of everyone, I have voluntarily become a servant to any and all in order to reach a wide range of people: religious, nonreligious, meticulous, moralists, loose-living immoralists, the defeated, the demoralized – whoever. I didn’t take on their way of life. I kept my bearings in Christ – but I entered their world and tried to experience things from their point of view. I’ve become just about every sort of servant there is in my attempts to lead those I meet into a God-saved life. I did all this because of the Message. I didn’t just want to talk about it; I wanted to be in on it!
