LIVING FOR JESUS
SEPTEMBER 17 - OCTOBER 22, 2017
6 weeks
 
 
A central tenant of our faith is that Jesus died for us.  Our grateful response to this priceless gift is how we live for Him.  In this series, we explore six ways in which we live our grateful response.

 

September 17
LIVING GRACEFULLY

Romans 14:1-12,  Matthew 18:21-35

SUMMARY
Today’s texts remind us that we live in a state of grace,  We are saved by grace, and called to extend the grace that has been showered on us with others. We will examine several aspects of grace and how they inform and direct our daily interactions.

September 24
LIVING THANKFULLY

Philippians 1:21-30,  Matthew 20:1-16

SUMMARY
How much is enough, and what is fair?  People have as many answers as there are people!  Jesus is not interested in our answers though.  He has His answer, and it is THE answer.  That answer, which we explore today, will guide is as we seek to live thankfully.

LIVING OBEDIENTLY

Philippians 2:1-13,   Matthew 21:23-32

SUMMARY
We often think of obedience as the compulsory following of standards and expectations placed on us by others.  Today, we examine God’s definition of obedience, which is our submission to His will.  The teachings of Jesus and, indeed, the entirety of Scripture are God’s gift that we might know His will.  Today we learn how this is so much more than following rules.

LIVING FRUITFULLY

Philippians 3:4b-14

SUMMARY
The lush, lovely grape vine – so enticing to look at and full of potential. Yet it does not fulfill its created purpose until it bears fruit.  What does it mean for Christians to bear fruit?  Is this good works, or something more?  Today we look at how God has prepared and empowered us to live out our created purpose.

October 15
LIVING COVENANTALLY

Philippians 4:1-9,  Matthew 22:1-14

SUMMARY
There is nothing more intimate than the covenant God makes with His people (us).  Today we explore how living in a covenant relationship with God brings us into that intimate relational space with God that allows us to most fully know His will, and most fervently to desire to live in and by it.

October 22 
LIVING GENEROUSLY

1 Thessalonians 1:1-10,  Matthew 22:15-22

SUMMARY
When God gave us Jesus, He gave us Himself.  When Jesus died on the cross, God entered death.  In doing so, He modeled sacrificial generosity.  He held nothing back.  He gave everything for us.  Today, as we practice and model sacrificial giving, we gain a fuller understanding of how God desires to live in us and through us.
