Sunday to Monday/ Those Who Have Shaped Us

Christianity is not about building an absolutely secure little niche in the world where you can live with your perfect little wife and your perfect little children in your beautiful little house where you have no gays or minority groups anywhere near you.  Christianity is about learning to love like Jesus loved and Jesus loved the poor and Jesus loved the broken. ~Rich Mullins

On Sunday, Pastor Dave’s sermon was entitled “The Memory of Rich Mullins and Others That Have Shaped Us.”  Text used was from  John 15:26-27, 16:4b-15.

Some questions to help you reflect on yesterday’s message…
• Rich Mullins once said that, “We don’t each really want information.  We want to know if we are loved or not.”  How has that quote played out in your life?  Who do you know has or does love you?  (John 3:16)

• “Surrender don’t come natural to me
I’d rather fight You for something
I don’t really want
Than to take what You give that I need
And I’ve beat my head again so many walls
Now I’m falling down, I’m falling on my knees”
Hold Me Jesus – Rich Mullins
Why should we surrender to Jesus?  Do you want to surrender to God?  Is it worth losing your way to follow God’s way?

• Who has shaped your testimony and life of faith?  Let us give thanks to God for them.

• Ponder, reflect and pray this week on these words from Rich Mullins…”Once you come to understand that life is unbelievably brief and that we really can’t do anything that’s gonna change anything, that we don’t really amount to a hill of beans—then all of a sudden you go, “so it doesn’t really matter if I’m not great.  And I don’t have to be great, that means I can fail.  And if I can fail, that means I can try.  And if I can try, that means I’m gonna have a good time.”
