During our early years of following Jesus, we commonly experience giant leaps in our spiritual growth. We share our faith. We read the Word. Several vices lose their grip on our hearts. These life changes feel so affirming. And then we hit a plateau, dry spell, relapse, or dark phase. Growth stalls. Doubts surface. Old habits die hard. For most of us, spiritual growth is long, hard, and slow to progress. The Corinthian church will help us understand why (and what to do about it).

God has revealed himself to us through his word. It is the primary way in which he speaks to his people. Sadly, we tend to reduce the Bible to theological textbook, ethical guide, or historical narrative. The Bible includes this elements, but should not be reduced to them. This sermon argues for a relational form of reading the Bible, providing several simple definitions for words related to the Bible and reasons we don't read.

We value service because it is how God works through us. Our good deeds, acts of charity, and generosity gives evidence of his grace. Those who live as servants recognize their life is on lease. They see others' needs as opportunities to help. Ancient Israel would have understood this concept of stewardship. Jesus modeled it perfectly.

We value honor. It acknowledges the God-given role Mom and Dad play in shaping our futures. Of course, parenting is complex, and every parent fails. Nevertheless, Mom and Dad have a high calling, giving their kids their first glimpse of God and shaping a glorious future. While they are not always thanked, Mom and Dad deserve honor, which includes cares and esteem. And when we actively honor Mom and Dad, it trickles into a life of honoring other.

We value talk. It improves the family dynamic, learning to listen to, learn from, and draw out one another. Talking is of such great value, in fact, that God used it to create the world, call His people, and pass along His truth from one generation to another. Deuteronomy assumes the central role of "family talk" in the ongoing health of His people. When we talk, it builds faith and family bonds.

After Jesus rose from the dead, he made a few appearances. One of the most famous was a roadside conversation with Cleopas and friend as they journeyed to Emmaus. At first, they did not recognize Jesus, recounting to him his own tragic death. Crucifixion and resurrection, of course, were part of God's grand plan, spelled out in Scripture. Jesus makes this known, then himself, before he leaves his traveling companions. Both the resurrection and Scriptures serve as a vital link to God yet today.

Unlike the other religious leaders of his day, Jesus excelled at showing mercy. He looked through their sickness and sin to their needy hearts. So he invited the sick and sinner to follow him. Many did. Zacchaues stands out among them. This sinner, tax collector, and conspicuously short man first responded to Jesus' merciful gaze with a few little steps. Perhaps, God intends us to reflect the mercy of His Son.

Passage: Luke 8:1-3
Duration: 41 mins 49 secs
Jesus invited followers to accompany him as he spread word of God's kingdom. They learned from him, helped him, and eventually carried forth his message. These followers did not always fit the societal mold, but what made them exceptional was their commitment to Jesus. A band of female followers sets the tone for this series of unlikely followers. They reflect Jesus's generosity.

Our world loves outcomes. We crown the winner of the game. We award the student with remarkable grades. We praise the business with rising sales and church with growing attendance. Achievement is king. But God keeps a different scorecard. He prefers obedience to outcomes. He wants us postured to receive grace not achieve greatness.

God designed spiritual community to be a place of care. We meet one another's needs. We tend one another's wounds. We bear one another's burdens. These acts of care give evidence of our close companionship with God's Spirit. He did not intend for us to live alone. Such a community of care requires humility, honesty, and effort.
