Uncomfortable- Loving Others
BIG IDEA- DISCIPLES LOVE OTHERS EVEN WHEN ITS UNCOMFORTABLE
1. HOW DO WE LOVE OTHERS WHEN ITS UNCOMFORTABLE?
Luke 14:25-33 (NLT)
“A large crowd was following Jesus. He turned around and said to them, “If you want to be my disciple, you must, by comparison, hate everyone else—your father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters—yes, even your own life. Otherwise, you cannot be my disciple. And if you do not carry your own cross and follow me, you cannot be my disciple.
“But don’t begin until you count the cost. For who would begin construction of a building without first calculating the cost to see if there is enough money to finish it? Otherwise, you might complete only the foundation before running out of money, and then everyone would laugh at you. They would say, ‘There’s the person who started that building and couldn’t afford to finish it!’
“. . .So, you cannot become my disciple without giving up everything you own.”
I John 4:19 (NIV)
“We love because he first loved us.”
1. SURRENDER all of yourself to Jesus. Give up on your desires for your life.
2. WHO, WHAT, WHEN do you need to love even though it will be uncomfortable?
