Mars Hill Church Teignmouth

Introduction:
Last week we saw how Jesus paid it all. How the atonement; At-one-moment in time Jesus came and took our place, died for our sins, rose for our lives, and that we don't earn this, but we gain this when we gain Jesus. Today we look at our place in the deal. We look at our place in sacrifice, in laying down our lives, in pursuing Jesus, in being Glory bearers of God, in taking this Christian walk seriously, so we don't play church be we start being the church.
What do we value in life, what do we deem precious - our homes, cars, business, employment, friends, family, marriages, schooling, grades, retirement, holidays? What we deem most precious we give our lives too, it gets our greatest attention. The larger the object the bigger the gravitational pull; so whats the biggest object, focus in our lives, that we are being drawn to?
We see today that blood is precious, is something important to God, because the blood represents life, and life is precious and important to God, and he wants us to get our focus right too.

 

Key Verse:
So they shall no more sacrifice their sacrifices to goat demons, after whom they whore. This shall be a statute forever for them throughout their generations. (Leviticus 17v7).

 

Some Thoughts:
What or who do we worship? Is Jesus more important to us then our own comfort, desires, even life? What do we give our attention to; our time, energy and money too? If its not Jesus then we are committing adultery/idolatry towards God. How can we have a shift in mindset and focus, so that all we do flows from our love for God?

Strong Foundations - Genesis 29-31 - What kind of Christian?

Being a Christian isn’t always easy… If we truly want to live for Christ - it costs, we need perseverance, we need to be willing to let go of our life, and as Jesus said - we need to loose our life, if we want to truly find his. I have been asking myself - What Kind of Christians is the church producing today? Are we anything like the picture God had in mind? We want to portray the true gospel, and see real authentic Christians being disciples and looking to make other disciples, who are willing to come and be a living sacrifice and whose delight is Jesus....

Strong Foundations - Genesis 28 - Unseen God

Have you ever gone though life wondering where God is? It might not be that is was particularly a bad time of life, but you just couldn’t really see what God was doing?
