What does it mean that Jesus is Lord?
Delbert Enns pastor www.EasTview.org
What does it look like when we empty our self glory?
Embrace Jesus. Blessed life.
A man was lost in the desert and found a shack. Found a rusty pump. Nothing came. He found a bottle of water with a note to pour it into the pump. He could choose to drink the old water or risk all for fresh cold water.
You must make choices. SALT. LIGHT. HURT.
Matt 5:13 salt was a preservative. Prosciutto.
People want to jump in to help to show they are needed. You are not the savior. Are you stopping the decay.
2. You are the light to be seen to give glory to God.
We live in a fighting age. Grey Matter book. A church that is different will attract.
3. Countercultural Family
Not just you and me
Not just selfies
Do we live an easy life? Not
Hurt. Salt Light will hurt. You'll be persecuted. You'll get a reward. A blessing.
Blessed are you when...
2 Tim 3:12 you will suffer persecution for Jesus's sake.
Jesus is the most hated human in history. Both grandfathers died in Russian prison for being pastors. They died for Jesus.
3. The Hero
There is a special spirit in us. Did your camp counselor tell you you would be persecuted?
Phil 2:5-11 Jesus set aside divinity and lived a selfless life and died a terrible death.
Every year 100,000 believers lose their lives for Jesus.
The guy at the pump poured the water into the pump. You have to give it all away to get anything back.
