Sermon for April 2nd, 2017
We are continuing in our series for Lent. We have been talking about Giving it up. Not just giving up the things like chocolate, coffee or social media (Hint: You might need to give those up as well, if you use them in an unhealthy way). Instead, we are commanded to give up all kinds of other things, like control, expectations, superiority, and enemies.
This week Jesus says that if we want to follow him we must take up our cross and follow him. This means we no longer do everything our own way, in our own plans, and ignore God.
Jesus has come to give us life but we die to self and to live is Christ.
Listen to the message today and be challenged by God’s Word.
