The Side-Effects of Being a Christian
Series: Red Letters
Based on Luke 12:49-53
 
Even the best prescription drugs come with some unpleasant side effects. Jesus said it works in a similar way being a Child of God. We have the miracle cure of God’s forgiveness, but the sinful world doesn’t often react well to God and His message and they will persecute Christians because of it. Jesus told us to be ready for those attacks where the devil would even try to cause divisions in our families to shipwreck our faith. Jesus wants us to stand firm with him and not give up our faith for any thing or any one.

    Watching and Waiting for God’s Kingdom
    Based on Luke 12:32-40
    Waiting is never easy, nor is it fun. Without God in our lives, waiting is pointless. God tells us how to pass the time in the most meaningful way. As we wait for his return, he encourages us to be faithful in serving him. That’s what makes waiting bearable and even enjoyable.

    Have in Mind the Things Above
    Based on Colossians 3:1-4

    The Apostle Paul told us to set our minds on things above. But what does that mean? It involves avoiding the “things below” like materialism and selfishness (the way the world thinks and operates), and focusing on the future glory that God promises to us in heaven!

    Our Foundation for Prayer
    Based on Luke 11:1-13

    The prayers recorded in the Bible are vastly different and unique. Yet, they are addressed to the same God. The reason for their differences is because they are all based on the character of our God, who is both our King and Shepherd, our Judge and Friend. And yet none of those titles are the foundation for our prayers. The only foundation for our prayer is found in Jesus’ address in the Lord’s prayer. Our relationship with God as Father is our foundation for prayer.

    Just Relax – Children’s Version
    Based on Luke 10:38-42

    We live in a fast-paced world that pulls us in so many different directions. As a result, anxiety and stress fill our lives. Martha felt that way, too, as she tried to make sure everything was ready for Jesus to visit her home. Jesus reminded Martha — and us — that we need to get rid of the distractions in our life that take our focus away from Jesus and His Word, the one thing needful. We do that by listening to what Jesus has to say! He continually reminds us of His love and forgiveness. He is the One who helps us to relax and slow down and enjoy His peace and love.
