Manifesto: I Follow Jesus - Week 14 - What's In Your Wallet
Manifesto: I Follow Jesus
Speaker: Ty Neal
Date: April 07, 2014
Manifesto (noun): a statement declaring publicly the intentions, motives, or views of its issuer.
Jesus came on a mission with a message of "Follow Me". He promises not only a new life, but a new way of living in the here and now. A life that transforms and transcends. Even so, we all have questions about the details of following him. How do I really follow Jesus everyday? How does following Jesus affect my relationships, my finances, my attitude, my fears - you know, all of life? Jesus had a lot to say in his famous Sermon on the Mount; on what it means to follow him in the here and now. Among Jesus' teaching, the Sermon on the Mount is perhaps the most beloved, the best known and the least understood. What does it mean to say "I follow Jesus?" Join us as we discover the life changing words of Jesus. January 5th - June 1st
"Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. "The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light, but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness! "No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.
As he came from his mother's womb he shall go again, naked as he came, and shall take nothing for his toil that he may carry away in his hand.
And he said to them, "Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions."
He who loves money will not be satisfied with money, nor he who loves wealth with his income; this also is vanity.
