Sermons about Commitments
The main thing the church needs to be about, according to the teaching of Jesus and the message of the entire New Testament, is making desciples. This involves four primary commitments that are evident in the life of the early church. This can also be summarized in terms of the five priorities.
1.Practice forgetting. 2.Commit to give up grudges. 3.Commit to restore relationships. 4.Commit yourself to radical change.
A lot of candidates talk about change. But, we rarely see positive, social change happen and when we do it is often drastically overdue or wrapped in so much bureaucracy that its effect is muted. Sure, there are new cabinets, policies, judges and laws, but still, life goes on pretty much the same from one candidate to the next. Maybe change cannot be voted in. Maybe it is not legislated. Maybe it does not happen through policies and its stream does not flow from Capitol Hill. Perhaps true, lasting change emerges from the hearts of the people. That is what Jesus taught and advocated.
