The .mp3 audio file for Senior Pastor Jerry McNamara’s July 26 message, “Are You Living THE Life? (‘I AM #5)” is now available.
This sermon is part 11 of our summer teaching series “Life In HIS Name (Gospel Of John Teaching Series)” and was offered during our Sunday worship service at Fishers Of Men Lutheran, one of the growing churches of Sugar Land.
07/26/15 SUMMARY: Zombies are all the rage in pop culture because the “undead” seems to live for nothing more than talking life from others. But we, too are only “half alive” if we haven’t come to the point of living by believing in Jesus. Learn how intentionally answering (and living our answer) to Jesus’ question in John 11: 26 can change our lives.
GOING FURTHER (More from “Are You Living THE Life” at Fishers)
Read Matthew 16:13-16. Jerry taught this is THE most important question we will ever answer. Who do YOU say Jesus is? Does your answer show through in your life (for a reference point see Luke 6:43-46)? As Jerry taught, your answer to this question shapes your eternity!
Read John 11:24-26. Jerry also taught that this question, the one posed to Martha is the second-most important question we will ever answer–because this answer will shape our daily life and choices. Do you believe Jesus is The resurrection and THE life? Can you say that you live your everyday life by the compass of believing in Jesus? What do you think would be different if you “lived by believing in Jesus” rather than merely seeking His help when things go wrong?
Write or pray a prayer where you share your answers to these questions. Ask Jesus to guide you as you live by believing in Him. Also, pray about and bring to Jesus any part of your life–your hope, a relationship, stuck in a job–that feels “dead” and in need of resurrection.
