Questions

Rev. Mark Holmen concludes today’s message by pointing us to Joshua 24:1-28 as the conclusion of the chapter in God’s Story that Deuteronomy 6 starts. The leader, Joshua, sets up a large stone as a memorial of the chapter and the commitment God’s people were making, and he declares in Joshua 24:27 “This stone will be a witness against us. It has heard all the words the Lord has said to us. It will be a witness against you if you are untrue to your God.” WILL YOU GET AND SET UP A MEMORIAL STONE? WILL YOU COMMIT TO SERVING THE LORD WITH ALL YOUR HEART IN EVERY AREA OF YOUR LIFE–ESPECIALLY IN YOUR HOME?  If so, take a picture of your memorial stone and share it on the fishersofmensl Facebook page or Instagram & Twitter with the hashtag #Faith@Home.

Note: you might find a look at today’s live outline or the worship folder can be helpful to review the teaching points from “Life Bigger Than Problems” and to answer the following questions: 

Questions

How Do You “Hold On” When Problems Come? What promise in God’s Word do you hold onto for strength and perspective?

Comment on this saying: “A way to tell how ‘small’ a person is is to see how small of a thing upsets them.”  What size problem does it take to upset you–traffic, sick dog, bounced check, disease diagnosis?  What do you think you about that “upset trigger” level in your life?  How would you like to handle problems differently?

One-Hour Blessing-Fest
Spend one hour writing down everything for which you are grateful.
Most people fly through the first 15 minutes. But what comes in the remaining minutes is a deeper realization and appreciation for all God gives us. Try it out this week! And…keep your thankfulness (and faith!) growing by adding at least one new blessing each day.

This sermon is part 12 of our Lenten teaching series “Helping Others Lose” and was offered during our Sunday worship service at Fishers Of Men Lutheran, one of the growing churches of Sugar Land.

03/29/15 SUMMARY: We’ve spent six weeks gaining from the LORD as we have “lost” or let go of worries, anger, fear, and more. Today, on Palm Sunday, Jesus reminds us the reason we are to lose (and the reason He came to lose His life) is so that others might also “lose to gain.” Here’s God’s invite to not just benefit from His work of salvation but to let Him continually “work out our salvation.” Then as God’s workmanship (Ephesians 2:10) we do similar good works as Jesus and thus join the work and extend His love and salvation to others!

“I’ve been blessed to be a blessing? How can I help you?” Say & live that 1x a day and you’ll help others lose to gain what YOU have-Jesus!

03/8/15 SUMMARY: Maybe a better title is “Losing [Damaging, Godless, Unhealthy Expressions Of] Anger.” Even Jesus got angry. The question is how do we avoid sin when boundaries are crossed? Seek all God wants you to gain of His Spirit!

03/1/15 SUMMARY: Who said there has to be a winner and a loser in a relationship? In a marriage where you are supposed to be ONE, if someone loses, you both lose! Both are hurt!

In relationships, if we strive to be “right” or to “win” there will always be two losers–because the relationship loses! But, it is transformative when we discover that Jesus’ path of reconciling a world of sinners–you and me!–to God is the same process for us TRULY winning in our relationships. Which relationship will you apply this to first? In which relationship will you “lose” to win?
