Monday is Coming
New Liberty Sermon
Pastor Kyle – Student Pastor
We’re extremely busy, were extremely broken! Are we equipped to go out for the week and know we’re loved no matter what happens… Is Sunday merely an event in our week?
Big idea: Sunday MUST impact Monday!
Sunday MUST impact our life on a daily basis… This isn’t just a building, this is a group of people, our family.
Monday is WHEN REALITY HITS
Do we go from our own instincts or do we draw from The wisdom of the Father?
Monday is WHEN SUNDAY IS TESTED AND YOUR FAITH IS PUT TO WORK
A feeling of guilt is about conviction… The tugging is God pulling you in and LOVING on you. Accountability is important, no matter if it’s school, hobby, work, etc. People need to know where you stand. Let people know we’re a Christ follower… Are you fearing the accountability of your actions? It can be good, we need that on a daily basis. When Peter denied Jesus, they (the servant(s) asking if he knew Jesus) didn’t know where he stood. Who are the servant girls in your life? If someone asks where you go or if you believe in God, can you be open and admit the truth?
There is power is the name of Jesus!
Jesus is a buzz word… When said in a non religious place or place “accepted” outright… Heads turn…. This is a hot topic! The name of Jesus will turn heads! We need to let people know where we stand! We have the best news… Jesus didn’t die, he rose from the grave! He died on the cross for our sins, for our transgressions, for us to be free, and wants to change others through you, radically!
Jesus wants to work from the inside out… He doesn’t care to see what’s on the outside if the inside doesn’t match… Jesus is the HOPE of the world!
Don’t leave church knowing a story… Know how it applies to you and your life and how it can change you and use you for the WORLD! He put you here for each specific person you encounter. Don’t let church be a hobby… Following Jesus will cost you EVERYTHING! It will cost you marriage, friendships, popularity, judgement, job, etc.
What I gain is SO MUCH BETTER than what I LOSE!
Find the passion for Christ daily.. He doesn’t change, we do!
“In Deed and in Truth”
Is church an event or apart of your life?
Judge your success on the outcome, not the numbers or what you see that comes to you daily or in the pews …
“So the Jews said to him, “What sign do you show us for doing these things?” Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” The Jews then said, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and will you raise it up in three days?” But he was speaking about the temple of his body. When therefore he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this, and they believed the Scripture and the word that Jesus had spoken.”
– John 2:18-22
“And immediately, while he was still speaking, Judas came, one of the twelve, and with him a crowd with swords and clubs, from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders. Now the betrayer had given them a sign, saying, “The one I will kiss is the man. Seize him and lead him away under guard.” And when he came, he went up to him at once and said, “Rabbi!” And he kissed him. And they laid hands on him and seized him. But one of those who stood by drew his sword and struck the servant of the high priest and cut off his ear. And Jesus said to them, “Have you come out as against a robber, with swords and clubs to capture me? Day after day I was with you in the temple teaching, and you did not seize me. But let the Scriptures be fulfilled.” And they all left him and fled.”
– Mark 14:43-50
“And as Peter was below in the courtyard, one of the servant girls of the high priest came, and seeing Peter warming himself, she looked at him and said, “You also were with the Nazarene, Jesus.” But he denied it, saying, “I neither know nor understand what you mean.” And he went out into the gateway and the rooster crowed. And the servant girl saw him and began again to say to the bystanders, “This man is one of them.” But again he denied it. And after a little while the bystanders again said to Peter, “Certainly you are one of them, for you are a Galilean.” But he began to invoke a curse on himself and to swear, “I do not know this man of whom you speak.” And immediately the rooster crowed a second time. And Peter remembered how Jesus had said to him, “Before the rooster crows twice, you will deny me three times.” And he broke down and wept.”
– Mark 14:66-72
