If the resurrection is real and Jesus is Lord of my life, how should that change in the way I should live?  Being a Christ-follower should impact every area of my life “for I died to this life, and my real life is hidden with Christ in God.”  In order to live for Christ and make a difference in this world, it’s no longer about me.  It’s about Him.  As Pastor Mike wraps up the series, “Now What” we will focus on four areas that need to be surrendered to Christ.

Now What? Part 5

(A Change in How I Live My Life)

For you died to this life, and your real life is hidden with Christ in God.

Colossians 3:3 NLT

A Life of… (Self-denial)

Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul?”

Matthew 16:24-26a NASB

(Service)

“It is not this way among you, but whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant, and whoever wishes to be first among you shall be your slave; just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” _

Matthew 20:26-28 NASB

(Consistency)

“Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock.”

“Everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not act on them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and it fell—and great was its fall.” _

Matthew 7:24-27 NASB

(Influence)

“You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men. You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it give light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in heaven.”

Matthew 5:13-16 NASB
