What Kind Of Master Is Jesus?
“Why do you call Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say? Luke 6:46
LORD JESUS! You’ve either said these sacred words yourself, or you’ve heard somebody else say them. But have you ever stopped to think: ”Why DO you we call Him ‘Lord’ and then NOT DO what He tells us?” That’s Jesus’s question in Luke 6:46. It’s a legitimate question and it deserves a legitimate answer. This October at RiverTown, we’re going to take some time to get to the bottom of our LORD’S question.
So, I took some time think about some of the excuses in my own life.
Because I Wanted To Obey When I Answered.
Because It Doesn’t Fit In To My Current Direction.
Because I’m Afraid.
Because I’m Proud.
Because I’m Ashamed.
Because I’m Comfortable.
Because I’m Tired.
Because I’ll Be Bored.
Because I Don’t Really Trust God.
Because I Don’t Have The Resources.
Because I Want To Figure It Out Myself.
Because I Will Fail Again.
Because I Just Want Him To Do It For Me.
Because I’m Not Desperate Enough To Change.
Because I Want To Protect Myself.
Because I’ve Been Hurt Following God.
Because God Hasn’t Answered My Prayers.
Because I Want To Please Somebody Else.
Because I Love Other Things More.
Because I’m Not Sure What He Wants From Me.
Because I Don’t Know Enough of The Bible.
Because I Don’t Recognize His Voice.
Because I’m Really My Own Master.
Are any of your excuses in this list?
The point this Sunday is that Jesus is the Kind of Master that Serves YOU! The biggest help I have ever found to change my mind about serving Christ as my MASTER is to realize this important point:
“It Serves Me To Serve My MASTER.”
I Can’t wait to share with you this Sunday how this truth will PERMANENTLY CHANGE your WALK with CHRIST!
The secret behind it is in becoming what the Bible calls a BOND SERVANT.
In Christ, Pastor David Rathel
