Lord of My Shopping

Lord of My Shopping

Oct 28, 2018

Passage: Exodus 20:17

Preacher: Tim McConnell

Series: Lord

Category: Old Testament, Theology

Detail:

Here’s what the tenth commandment teaches us: comparison is deadly but contentment is peace.

This week's sermon

Does Jesus come shopping with you? There are so many things to want out there! The final commandment teaches us to strive for contentment, not covetousness. Wanting what others have leads to all sorts of bitterness and eventually to bad decisions. Being grateful for what we have fills us with joy and allows us to celebrate others’ good blessings. Comparison is deadly, but contentment is peace.

About This Series: LORD

Our fall discipleship series focuses on the Ten Commandments. Not only what they teach us not to do, but what to do. Jesus is Savior and Lord. Once we know him as Savior, it’s time to begin to allow His lordship in every corner of our lives. I can easily recognize Jesus as “Lord” in some abstract way. He’s Lord of the universe. He’s Lord of all history. But it gets harder when I think about His lordship in my own life. Is He really my master when I’m thinking about my relationships with my family? Is Jesus my first consult and guide when I’m arranging my finances? So much of discipleship is simply about loving Jesus more—loving Jesus more than desires of the flesh, loving Jesus more than money, loving Jesus more than what my neighbor has. The Ten Commandments are a great measure of our hearts. Do we love Jesus more than these? Jesus is Lord.
