Follow along and take notes with the latest message from Real Life Church
This whole series has been leading up to one inevitable conclusion - The change in a believer's life should make them different from "the world" not a duplicate of "the world." It's not just the way we talk it's the way we act, how we carry ourselves and goes right to our heart. It really is a question of loving like Jesus verses "loving" like the world - which is really not love at all.
Bottom Line: Be DIFFERENT not DUPLICATE
If people are going to follow our Jesus they've got to see Him in US first.
1 Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children 2 and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. 3 But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people. 4 Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving.
If we're going to LOOK LIKE Jesus we've got to LOVE LIKE Jesus.
Real Life's Mission: Help ever person possible find real life in Jesus and look more like Him every day.
The greatest difference between Jesus and the world is LOVE
3 TYPES OF FALSE LOVE:
SEXUAL IMMORALITY - A false love that elevates the sexual act above God's love
IMPURITY - A false love that elevates self over others
GREED - A false love for stuff that rejects God's love for us
REMEMBER: If you're not willing to change, others won't see Jesus in you and we'll fail at both halves of our mission.
Church, WE'VE got to be different if THEY'RE gonna see Jesus.
We want you to know that you matter to God and us.
