What does it mean to follow Jesus? In this sermon, Jimmy Seibert discusses the truth that we can trust God completely as Father, and when He gives us a command, it's always for our benefit that we obey. Discipleship with Jesus is simply hearing His words and obeying.
The word disciple means follower or learner - a wholehearted devotion to another. God is inviting us to not just be those who look on from the outside, but those who participate from the inside. The way this happens is through obeying Jesus's commands in scripture and in daily life.
Who is Jesus, and what does it mean to follow Him?
In this sermon, Jimmy Seibert discusses the person of Jesus: His lordship, His divinity, His power, His love, and His influence on the world. Everything in the world is centered around Jesus. Jesus is the most influential person in the world. He is the king of kings, and Lord of Lords. He was not simply a good teacher or a prophet, but God Himself. Do you know Him?
Jimmy explains what scholars say about Jesus, what the Bible says about Jesus, and what Jesus says about Himself. But at the end of the day, everyone must decide what he or she personally believes about Jesus.
In this sermon, Jimmy Seibert talks about the phrase Antioch was founded on, "A passion for Jesus and His purposes in the Earth." God's plan A is to glorify Himself in all the world through His people, the Church. The Church is God's plan A for everything He's doing, and He needs no plan B. God wants everyone to be involved in His mission to restore the world to relationship with Him.
Relationships can be a beautiful thing, but they can also be a complicated thing. What does God have to say to us about relationships?
In this sermon, Carl Gulley explains that the key to having good relationships--whether in friendships, in marriage, with family, or with coworkers--is humility. God's number one command is to love Him with everything, and to love our neighbors as ourselves. To do this, we have to focus more on responding right in our relationships than being right in our relationships.
