Obeying Jesus Series by David Flowers

Hello CMF,

I wanted to let you know about our new 7-week sermon series.

Obeying Jesus | 7 Commands for Every Disciple

In his last moments on earth with his core disciples, Jesus said, “Go and make disciples… teaching them to obey all that I have commanded.” So, what are these commands that sincere, authentic followers of Jesus should be obeying?

In our Obeying Jesus: 7 Commands for Every Disciple series, we will look closely at the teachings and practices that Jesus said are basic and foundational to faithfully following him.

Please join us for this journey through these seven commands of Christ.

Here is a snapshot of this Sunday's theme and message:

Obeying Jesus: Repent & Believe

Sermon Title:  Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus
Scripture Reading:  Mark 1:15; Luke 5:31-32; 2 Corinthians 7:1-10
Jesus gave his would-be disciples the command to “repent and believe” the good news. What does Jesus mean in his call to repent? And what is the “good news” we are being told to believe? In Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus (1 of 7), pastor David invites us to hear the challenge of Jesus to change our minds, to turn from our sin, and to accept that he is Lord—the Kingdom come in the flesh.

I hope you'll join us this Sunday at 10:30 AM for worship.

Blessings,

Pastor David

Why Repentance is Necessary by David Flowers

Hello CMF,
In the following visual addendum to the sermon, Excretion: Getting Rid of the Junk (6 of 7), I talk about why repentance is absolutely necessary for being a disciple of Jesus. 

Also, check out this post by Roger Olson on why we can't appeal to Nones (religiously unaffiliated) and Millennials by holding off or omitting the need to repent of our sins.

“Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit."  Acts 2:38 NIV

Blessings,
Pastor David
