Sermons about Emotions
Sometimes it seems like when we pray our prayers never make it past the ceiling and we wonder if God is really listening or, for that matter, if He really cares.

Matthew's account of Jesus' calling of his first disciples reveals that discipleship to Jesus was on God's terms not theirs; it required complete surrender. Of course, the disciples had to learn what this meant for them as they followed Jesus. Discipleship to Jesus is a perpetually growing relationship in which Jesus is in charge, and the disciple lacks nothing of what he or she needs. While Jesus has regard for the individuality of his disciples, their individuality was never the focus of their relationship to Jesus and was not allowed to define what their discipleship entailed. Jesus is in charge, not the disciple. Mere emotions cannot suffice to energize discipleship to the Lord Jesus and neither can the pursuit of self-fulfillment in the name of serving God; discipleship to Jesus is under his control and command.
