Summary

Would the people who know you best say that you have never been the same since you started following Jesus? This week, in our sermon series Never Be the Same, David Penuel gives us three metrics by which we can gauge our growth in Christ: Places, People, and Purpose.

Key Takeaways

  • Without ongoing life change, we lose our identity as followers of Jesus.
  • Following Jesus should lead you to changed places, changed people, and a changed purpose.
  • Jesus sees and knows the names of individuals.
  • To be a follower of Jesus, all we need to do is take the next step.
  • The accountability of community is necessary and helpful.
  • Following Jesus is not always fun, but it is good, and it is right.
  • Jesus had a purpose: to spiritually heal sinners. We, as His followers, become His “physician assistants”, who do everything under the licensing and authority of a physician.
  • Most of us live for our comfort on earth instead of living for eternity.
  • Whatever we do for those who have great needs, we are also doing for Jesus.
  • Jesus didn’t come to call the healthy but the sick.
  • Our treasure in heaven will be the purpose we embrace serving others in the name of Jesus.

Discussing and Applying the Sermon

  • What is the next small step of faith for you to take in your life?
  • Who are you spending the most time with? Are the most important people in your life helping you follow Jesus more closely?
  • How does your purpose reflect Jesus’ heart for the lost, the broken, and those in need?
