You’ve heard of setting a high bar?  Well, Jesus doesn’t just set the bar high here—he sets it as high as it can possibly go.  If you’re going to follow me, he says, your commitment to me must be greater than any other commitment, greater than family, your stuff, your own life. If you’re not “in” this with everything you’ve got, then you’re not “in” it.  So what does that look like in day-to-day life?  In this sermon we’ll talk about ways we can live as an “all the way Christian” at work, school, family, etc.

Gospel Message | Luke 14:25-33

25 Now large crowds were traveling with him; and he turned and said to them, 26 “Whoever comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and even life itself, cannot be my disciple. 27 Whoever does not carry the cross and follow me cannot be my disciple. 28 For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not first sit down and estimate the cost, to see whether he has enough to complete it? 29 Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation and is not able to finish, all who see it will begin to ridicule him, 30 saying, ‘This fellow began to build and was not able to finish.’ 31 Or what king, going out to wage war against another king, will not sit down first and consider whether he is able with ten thousand to oppose the one who comes against him with twenty thousand? 32 If he cannot, then, while the other is still far away, he sends a delegation and asks for the terms of peace. 33 So therefore, none of you can become my disciple if you do not give up all your possessions.
