Series: Jesus is Greater than Everything

Pastor A: Tim Phillips

Pastor B: Ben Johnson

Message Summary:

Our “Greater Than” series reminds us today that in life, as we live our faith in Jesus in this world, it’s often easy for us to take the easy route. While we have to admit taking the easy route, we also all need to admit that being a Christian is difficult even on a base level. Worse than that however, being a mature Christian, not just believing in Jesus but submitting to Him every day and walking in His will, is far more difficult. Because we are sinners we want to take the easy route, but Jesus calls us to a depth of faith and depth of obedience to Him, also known as maturity in Christ. In talking about becoming mature in Christ the writer to the Hebrews says “This we will do if God permits” (Hebrews 6:3). We know that the Lord not only “permits” our maturity but by His Holy Spirit causes it to happen! Today we remember that Jesus is greater than our immaturity!
