From Pastor Tim!

BE LIKE JESUS!

Mark 10:45 (NKJV) – Jesus said: “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”

Hebrews 12:2 (NKJV) – “…looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

Westernized Christianity has devolved into catering with entertainment and entitlement. More emphasis is placed in THE SHOW (the church ‘service’) rather than the INDIVIDUAL GROWTH of every believer (true discipleship). It’s quite a stark contrast to the words of Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our FAITH.

If Christians are to truly be CHRIST-like then it would certainly be to our vantage point to take Jesus’ words literally. Instead of most Christians having a burden to IMPACT our culture with relevant Kingdom truths, it would seem most Christians would be more comfortable with blending with the culture. Me – I want to be like JESUS. I’m not here to blend, I’m here to change; change me and change the world by the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
