03/06/2016 SUMMARY: Our Lenten study of Jesus’ life through the lens of Philippians 2:1-13 brings us to Philippians 2:8 “he humbled Himself by becoming obedient to death—even death on a cross!”  No one–not the Roman soldiers or the religious leaders who rejected Him–humbled Jesus by their treatment of Him.  Jesus lived and walked to the cross by His own choice to humble Himself.  To ‘humble oneself’ is the servant’s daily choice–just like Jesus did!

Sharing Questions.  Read Philippians 2:1-8 NLT; then answer:

Question 1

“Something to cling to”

2016-02-28_coverPastor Jerry McNamara’s February 28 message, “Something to cling to” is now available.

This sermon was offered during our Sunday worship service at Fishers Of Men Lutheran, one of the growing churches of Sugar Land, and was part six of our Lenten series Loving As A Servant.

See February 28, 2016’s Sermon Slides

02/28/2016 SUMMARY: On Lenten study of Jesus’ life through the lens of Philippians 2:1-13 brings us to Philippians 2:6. A servant chooses–as Jesus did–not to cling to or use “my rights.” We remember we are servants to God and His agenda.

Sharing Questions.  Read Philippians 2:1-6 NLT; Romans 8:16-17; and Matthew 20:20-28 then answer:

What Are You Clinging To?
Jesus let go of His ‘rights’ to do the right thing. Jesus set aside all privileges for the greater privilege of doing His Father’s will and coming to love as a servant. He lived, served, died, and rose to free us. What rights or privileges are you clinging to?  To love others as a servant–like Jesus–what do you have to let go of?

As “co-heirs with Christ” we know our Heavenly Father is lovingly sharing all the riches of Heaven with us–treating us as His own children in some mysterious way that gives us a portion similar to Jesus’.  Wow!  But Jesus’ path to that glory was through suffering, and this passage indicates we, to are to “share in His suffering.”  Since Jesus already died for us as a suffering sacrifice, we can understand this to mean that we, as Jesus did first, give up our own rights and desires, so that we might live for God and others.  What sacrifice of your time or finances might you have to “suffer” through to ‘love as a servant’ (our Mission Action focus)?

What excuse are you clinging to?
While none of us has unlimited time or resources we can all do something to love as a servant. But often we don’t. What excuse are you clinging to, to keep you from living out Jesus’ example of loving as a servant?

“Not Only, But Also”

2016-02-21_coverPastor Jerry McNamara’s February 21 message, “Not Only, But Also” is now available.

This sermon was offered during our Sunday worship service at Fishers Of Men Lutheran, one of the growing churches of Sugar Land, and was the conclusion of our series Loving As A Servant.

02/07/2016 SUMMARY:  God’s expected response to His Grace and invitation to follow Jesus is our desire and commitment to GROWING & maturing.  To believe in Jesus means we follow Him, and to follow means we GROW. Whether He is talking about vines & branches or mustard seeds, Jesus is clear that His followers are to grow–in maturity and fruitfulness–to be more like Him! Jesus wants us to grow up into Him–built up and building up others around us!

Sharing Questions.  Read Philippians 2:3-4 ESV; Jeremiah 2:13; and Luke 10:25-37 then answer:

God’s invitation to “look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others” is an invitation to to shrink and to grow.  We grow in our trust that God can look for our own interests better than we can.  As you look at Jeremiah 2:13, reflect on ways you haven’t relied on Him and answer: what’s an area or situation where you are not going to forsake God’s provision any more?  

By shrinking our time devoted to ourselves we can GROW in our availability to care for the interests of others. What’s one of your interests you plan to shrink how much time you spend pursuing it (Facebook, work, personal leisure, etc.) to be more aware of and available to care about the interests of others?

Let’s Grow Already!

Pastor Jerry McNamara’s February 7 message, “Let’s Grow Already!” is now available.

This sermon was offered during our Sunday worship service at Fishers Of Men Lutheran, one of the growing churches of Sugar Land, and was the conclusion of our series Growing As A Follower.

02/07/2016 SUMMARY:  God’s expected response to His Grace and invitation to follow Jesus is our desire and commitment to GROWING & maturing.  To believe in Jesus means we follow Him, and to follow means we GROW. Whether He is talking about vines & branches or mustard seeds, Jesus is clear that His followers are to grow–in maturity and fruitfulness–to be more like Him! Jesus wants us to grow up into Him–built up and building up others around us!

Sharing Questions.  Read Hebrews 5:11-6:3; Matthew 21:28-32 NASB, and Ephesians 4:11-14 then answer:

We get better at whatever we practice and Jesus wants us to practice and grow into maturity; becoming like Him. When you think about loving God and loving others, what’s YOUR next growth target? What is a practice or habit that you will STOP doing because it doesn’t add to your loving God and others? What is something you will START practicing (doing more and more)? Share your answers with a friend, spouse or your small group and ask them to pray for God’s power to help you GROW as a follower of Jesus!

Come Follow Me!

Pastor Emeritus Allen Bauer’s January 31 message, “Come, Follow Me! (Embrace Your ‘Follower’ Identity)” is now available.

This sermon was offered during our Sunday worship service at Fishers Of Men Lutheran, one of the growing churches of Sugar Land, and was part one of our series Growing As A Follower.

01/31/16 SUMMARY: As we begin a new series on our next ‘Mission Action,’ Pastor Emeritus Allen Bauer teaches us that a follower watches and imitates Jesus. We look at the Dos, Don’ts and ‘Wills’ of Followership so we can fully embrace our ‘follower’ identity.

Sharing Questions.  Read 1 John 2:1-6 and Mark 1:16-20, then answer:

Our culture encourages us to be the captain of our own fate, but Christianity’s Founder has a different message. Do you think of yourself as a follower of Jesus? In what way do you allow Jesus to lead in your life? Where in your life (work, relationships, finances, etc.) is it a challenge for you to let Jesus lead? What will you do this week to embrace your ‘follower’ identity?

Pastor Jerry McNamara’s January 24 message, “I Will Seek Him!” is now available.

This sermon was offered during our Sunday worship service at Fishers Of Men Lutheran, one of the growing churches of Sugar Land, and was part three of our series Living As A Believer.

01/24/16 SUMMARY:  As we conclude our ‘Living As A Believer’ series, Senior Pastor Jerry McNamara teaches that grace is ours thru His Cross; yet Jesus has more! God’s reward will come to those who aim at and strive after His way of doing and being right.

Sharing Questions.  Read Hebrews 11:5-10 and Matthew 27:37-43, then answer:

What Are YOU ‘looking forward to’? Hebrews 11:10 points out that saints in the past didn’t always see what they were ‘looking forward to’ but they kept believing and ACTING (living) based on their faith in God and what He promised. What do you believe about God?  What promise of His are YOU trusting? How are you acting each day based on your faith?
