Notes: 

  • Jesus launched his ministry with a message about happiness: the Sermon on the Mount, the beatitudes.
    • Happiness is an outcome. It’s not immediately accessible.
    • You sow and reap your way to happy.
    • What makes you happy? No thing. Sowing.
  • Something can be both unfair and true.
    • You were born with your nationality, which is true about you but not fair.
    • Likewise, we were all born sinners.
    • It might not be fair, but it is true.
    • Acting godly or righteous doesn’t make you godly anymore than acting British makes you British.
    • Only by being “born again” through faith in Jesus can we be made righteous.
    • We’ve all viewed our parents as enemies at some point.
    • They were at odds with us because they were for us.
    • Their love was too strong to simply go along. God is a perfect father. His love is too strong to simply go along with our sin.
    • This creates conflict between us and God.
    • Andy offered an opportunity at the end of the message for those who wish to put their faith in Christ and find peace with God.
  • You cannot serve both God and stuff.
    • In Jesus opinion, the chief competitor for your devotion and your heart is your stuff and your desire for stuff.
    • Discontentment, greed, and debt all erode your happiness.
    • Give first. Save second. Live on the rest. Giving always results in joy.
    • Money in the bank leads to peace in the mind. If you live on the rest you experience freedom.
  • BaptizeMe.org – Andy invited everyone who put their faith in Christ during the message a couple weeks ago to be baptized.
    • You either offer yourself as a slave to sin or to the good shepherd.
    • What do you say yes to over and over? What pleasure do you always say yes to? Sow better to reap better to feel better.
    • If we feel bad we pursue pleasure instead of sowing into happiness. But there is no quick fix.
    • We all know what we reach for when we feel unhappy.
    • We are choosing to be slaves to that pleasure that won’t actually bring us happiness.
    • If you continue to say yes to that pleasure, you are a thief. Is there a pleasure that is slowly taking you prisoner?
    • Trade your pleasure for a good shepherd who will give you abundant life.
  • Is there an opportunity for serving others or volunteering somewhere that you’re missing out on? If so, what is one step you can take immediately to take advantage of that opportunity?
