All the Old Testament laws were a shadow of Jesus. Jesus is the real thing. Jesus + anything = nothing. The things we do DO NOT make us a Christian.
Scriptures: First Lesson: Amos 5:21-27; Gospel: Mark 7:1-8
Sermon Text: Colossians 2:16-23
My Next Steps
- Click here for life application materials based on this week’s message for use in Small Groups, home devotions, & other gatherings.
- Check out the Sunday Leftovers, notes from Pastor Kuerth’s sermon preparation that didn’t make it in the sermon.
Point to Ponder: Because Jesus has fulfilled the law completely, he’s taken it off our agenda completely as a religious requirement (both Old Testament ceremonial laws and any man-made rules or traditions).
Treasure to Share: It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery (Galatians 5:1).
Action to Take: Evaluate…
1) Are there any areas in your life where you’ve fallen victim to faith hackers?
2) Is there anything in how we talk or act here at Victory of the Lamb that would make it easier for you to more comfortably invite an unchurched friend? Please send me your feedback to Pastor Kuerth.
