Keep the main thing the main thing. That’s easy to say, but not so easy to do. It’s easy to get overwhelmed by all the things there are to do in life. We often struggle to determine what the most important things are.
Yet before he left this world, Jesus actually shared some pretty clear and concise directives for his disciples. “These are the things you need to do.”
In this series Words With Friends we’re going to explore Jesus’ directives and explore how we can do a better job of keeping the main thing the main thing. We’re going to rejoice that God has graciously brought us into his family through faith in Jesus and be encouraged to remain with him in life and death.
To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples.” John 8:31
Through his life and death Jesus taught us that God’s love is a self-sacrificing love that finds fulfillment in serving others. All we do in life is to be marked by this type of love. Sermon Text: John 15:9-17
