Talks In Transit

This past weekend I finished up our series in Transit called The Real Deal: What it means to be an authentic follower of Jesus Christ. The outlines for the other two talks are here and here.

This week the title was "Just Do It."

Intro

Big game of shoe chaos (hadn't done a game in awhile so it was fun to play!)

Opening Illustration:

Three Legged stool - the stool doesn't function right with just one or two legs. We need the third leg to complete the stool so that it can DO what it was created for.

Transition:

So it is with our spiritual life. KNOWing God and BEing the gospel are not enough to be who God wants us to be. He wants no part of our selfish spirituality that simply gathers religious knowledge or self-centered spiritualists. We must DO in order to fulfill our mission on earth.

Text: James

Body:

Text: Micah 6:5-8, James 2:14-26

Mainly stuck with the Micah text and asked this question, "What does it mean to do good?"

Act Justly - Fight for what's right for those who cannot fight for themselves.

Illus: Superman - Fighting for truth, justice, and the American way.

Love Mercy - Caring for those who no one else cares about.

Illus: Lonely kid at school befriended by other kids who saw his need.

Walk humbly with God - All of this can only be done when we choose to daily follow Jesus so as to know Him, be like Him, and live as He did.

Illus: Parker and Sarah holding my hand in dangerous places
