The end goal of this series is becoming love by practicing the Way of Jesus in this confused, desperate world. In this talk, we discover we must first check the blind spots of our eyesight to acknowledge what we can't see, before we can truly love others. When we are willing to do this self-evaluation, we are on our way to becoming Jesus' love towards others.
In following and practicing the Way of Jesus, our hearts are revived, love comes alive and we discover a life that is better. But a life that’s better starts with knowing what we’re growing towards. In this message, we’ll unpack the ultimate end goal of life with God and the transformative power of His love.
The Way of Jesus
We all have routines and habits that we practice on a daily basis. What we often don’t realize is that many of these are routines that are shaping us more than we know. In order to have the fullness of life Jesus offers, we must embrace the lifestyle Jesus lived. In this message, we’ll learn the value of patterning our lives after the Way of Jesus.
Roots: Experiencing the Practices of Jesus
God’s invitation since the creation of the world has been to plant our roots in His unconditional love expressed in the gift of His son and seen in the Ways of Jesus. Beginning to learn the Way of Jesus first requires us to know whether we are rooted in His love or in most cases, rooted in fear. When we do this, we can then discover the fulfillment and peace that become ours when we say “yes” to His offer, and to “keep company” with Him.
