Jesus calls for an exchange; your life for His. When you take his life, get ready for steady growth. You need endurance and you need grace to change when a new Word from God takes hold. You mustn’t hold on to what God let go of, and you should grab on to what God is giving you. Listen as Casey sheds some light on what happens when you become a follower of Jesus.
If you want to know how to love someone well, look at how Jesus loved. If you want to know how to lead well, look at how Jesus led. Jesus’ example of love and leadership is needed in every generation. On this Father’s Day, may all fathers be reminded that their duty is to love. Be encouraged as Casey offers insight to the love and leadership of Jesus.
Join us for a Father’s Day breakfast buffet on Sunday afternoon. That’s right, the afternoon. Instead of having to rise early to make it to breakfast, stay after the morning service for fellowship and a buffet of french toast, sausage, bacon, eggs and hash browns!
If you are a father, enjoy the celebration. If you have a father with you, bring him to celebrate with him. If you just want to fellowship and have a good meal, join us tomorrow.
Much thanks for the Life’s Journey Hospitality Team for planning this and putting it together.
Jesus uses the analogy of old and new wine skin to explain the transformation that God must make in you before you enter into a new relationship with him. A wine skin is a container for storing wine. As wine is contained in the wine skin, the wine changes the physical nature of the skin. A life without Jesus is like old wine skin which is already stretched as far as it can stretch. It cannot hold new wine because new wine will again change the physical characteristics of the material of the container causing it to burst. Jesus came to give new and abundant life – the new wine – which is more than the old container can hold. Your life (the container) must be remade to hold the new wine. Jesus must change us; he must upgrade our system to handle the new life.
Jesus is saying, “If I put the new system in you without first changing you, then you will break. I must first give you a new birth before the new covenant can be poured into you.” Be encouraged as Casey offers insight into the the transformation that Jesus offers to all who want it.
