Let your values be shaped by what Jesus Christ says.
I. Appraise Jesus in Light of Your Life (14:25-35)
Discipleship is the death of you
“Nothing in you that has not died will ever be raised from the dead. Look for yourself, and you will find in the long run only hatred, loneliness, despair, rage, ruin, and decay. But look for Christ, and you will find Him, and with Him everything else thrown in.” (C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity)
II. Appraise Yourself in Light of God’s Actions (15:1-10)
Rejoicing in finding the lost
Zephaniah 3:17 The LORD your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.
• Do you need to hate your family to follow Jesus? Do you?
• In what way are you ‘salty’ as a believer?
• How does the ‘lost-found’ description reflect your salvation?
• What is God doing at salvation, and how does that impact your life?
