This week's sermon

When you have the upper hand and are in a position to absolutely destroy or tear someone down with your words, what keeps you from it? The temptation is to use words to destroy those around us, particularly if we have the upper hand in power or authority. False witness. But we must resist the temptation to be false with our words at all. Many situations tempt us to lie, gossip, twist words or mislead. Instead our words should be used to bless, to build up, to encourage and to speak truth. Jesus is Lord of my voice.

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.
