Matthew: The Disciples Reward

Northgate

03-03-2024 • 40 mins

As we gather to observe the profound traditions of Easter, I invite you to join a conversation that promises to reshape your understanding of commitment, especially in the context of faith and finance. This sermon peels back the layers of our relationship with money, using the lessons from Matthew 19 to question whether it's become an idol in our culture. We draw parallels between Hernando Cortez's drastic act of ship-burning and the radical decision to follow Jesus, urging you to contemplate the influence wealth holds over your life.

Venture with us through a reflective journey on the price of true discipleship, holding up a mirror to the rich young ruler's pivotal moment with Jesus. This story is not just a tale from the past but a resonant challenge for each of us, as we examine our attachments and consider what it truly means to let go. Discover the eternal promises of Jesus juxtaposed with the transient, often deceptive, allure of worldly success. Through the disciples' own queries, we uncover the comforting truth that even amidst our strivings and confusions, Jesus offers a guarantee that transcends time and material wealth.

Closing with a powerful call to surrender, we embrace the 'Burn the Ships' prayer, inspired by for KING & COUNTRY's stirring message of transformation. This episode doesn't just recount historical narratives or scripture; it invites you on a personal expedition towards relinquishing control, stepping past the boundaries of comfort, and into the liberating embrace of Jesus Christ. Together, we explore the rest, joy, and acceptance that await when we truly let Jesus take the helm of our lives. Join us for this soul-stirring dialogue on surrender, commitment, and the life-changing impact of embracing Jesus' invitation to eternal life.
