A Two-Part Ethic

Posted in self-centeredness, sin by LifeSpringChurch on October 26th, 2015

This sermon takes a look at the Bible's summary of all sin as either a failure to love God or to love one's fellow man.  All sin is a failure of love.  As stated in the sermon, the command to love is the most difficult in the Bible given our proclivity to selfishness.

This is the last sermon in a series on discipleship, and in it we look at Paul's assertion that Jesus surmounts everything else in the world in importance.  Jesus said that there is a certain burden associated with following him, but it is light in comparison to every other path we might take.

Dumbing-Down Discipleship

Posted in discipleship, follow me, disciples by LifeSpringChurch on October 12th, 2015

This sermon looks at the tendency human beings have of lowering the expectations we have for what it means to be a disciple of Jesus.  Clearly, Jesus intends for us to give our whole selves to the role of being his followers.
