The Cost of Following Jesus

October 30, 2022 • Rev. Mike Fordham • Luke 14:25–33

As people who call ourselves Christians, or followers of Jesus, are we committed or just involved? Are we just interested onlookers in the crowd or are we truly following Jesus with our entire lives? When we met Jesus, we died to our old sinful, self-centered, selfish lives and have been raised to new life, a life that is characterized by a selfless, sacrificial, servanthood life for Jesus. We no longer live for ourselves, but all that we do and are, is for Jesus.

Witness

October 23, 2022 • Rev. Mike Fordham • Acts 1:6–11

We will not reach the entire world from the comfort of the pews in our beautiful sanctuaries. Jesus is saying to his disciples, here is your mission, should you choose to accept it. And we have been given the power of the Holy Spirit to show and tell Jesus to the world.

Service

October 16, 2022 • Rev. Mike Fordham • John 13:1–17

Being a humble servant of God is hard, as it goes against our sinful, selfish human nature. It will cost us what is dear to us, it will hurt, as it requires us to empty ourselves, our pride, our egos. If just Christians today became humble servants of God in this manner it would heal our homes, our families, our churches, our neighborhoods, and our world.

Gifts

October 9, 2022 • Rev. Mike Fordham • Luke 20:20–26

The Bible has a great deal to say about money and possessions, but when we talk about it in church, we get uncomfortable. If God owns everything, then we will naturally ask God what He wants us to do with our money and possessions and then we will follow Jesus’ lead and do whatever is God’s will. It will set us free to give as God directs. It is our hope that we give voluntarily, generously, cheerfully, and sacrificially to God.

Presence

October 2, 2022 • Rev. Mike Toluba • Matthew 18:15–20

Experiencing community is an essential part what it means to be human. We will never experience the fullness of God in our lives without Christ-centered community. But community can also be very messy. Whenever people come together, there is the potential for conflict. Instead of allowing forces to drive us apart, let’s lean into the Jesus way of addressing conflict when someone sins against you or disagrees with you.

Prayers

September 25, 2022 • Rev. Mike Fordham • Luke 10:38–42

Do you have a regular habit built into your life that prioritizes your time alone with God, sitting at the feet of Jesus? That is what Jesus is inviting us to do. Out of this will flow fruit in our lives that look a lot like Jesus’ fruit. God longs for us to regularly make the time to rest in God’s presence and stop striving to be someone important or even to achieve great things. In that place where we stop our rushing God offers us peace in the middle of chaos and worries.
