From Lip Service to Life Service

When we decide to follow Jesus and live the Christian life, we don't always know what direction that it may take us.  We want to think that it will be easy and comfortable, but quickly find that life begins to take on a different challenge.  We must adjust our thinking, accept and embrace changes and endure losses.  It seems far easier to "say" we will follow and not take on the work of it.


But the Christian Life is not one of just what we say, but what we do.  It requires real commitment and practice.  There is the encounter with those we prefer not to and going the extra mile when we would rather sit back and observe.


The Pharisees were always looking for "options" on how to legally avoid all of the  requirements of being a Christian.  So they go to test Jesus on how to get around the requirements by picking out matters that are not important.  As always, the response of Jesus is one that reminds us all that we must move "From Lip Service to Life Service".


Let's talk about how we can make that move and be the difference for the world.  Join us at 9 or 10:30 a.m..  ALL ARE WELCOME!!
