Additional Sermon Content

A disciple is someone who follows Jesus in the everyday stuff of life, while teaching others to do the same.

Jeff Vanderstelt

Jesus . . . wants us to see that the neighbor next door or the people sitting next to us on a plane or in a classroom are not interruptions to our schedule. They are there by divine appointment. Jesus wants us to see their needs, their loneliness, their longings, and he wants to give us the courage to reach out to them.

Rebecca Pippert

And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before him.

Colossians 3:21-22

There is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to people by which we must be saved.

Acts 4:12

The mission of Jesus is yours to participate in. It has always been God’s intention to choose normal, everyday people, and to show his amazing power and glory through them. He’s not looking for the most impressive person because he already is that person.
