Seven Signs of Life (7 of 7) / by David Flowers

Sermon Series: Seven Signs of Life
Sermon Title: Nutrition: A Diet That Makes a Difference
Scripture Reading: John 4:27-38; 6:35-40; Matthew 4:3-5; 5:6

In biology we learn that there are seven processes of life that identify all living organisms. We could also view these as “signposts” to a healthy living organism. Here at CMF, we're using these seven signs as a diagnostic tool for assessing individual spiritual health as a disciple, as well as the overall health of our church.

This series looks at the seven signs of life in the Kingdom of God.

  1. Movement: Prove You’re Not Dead
  2. Respiration: Breathing God’s Breath
  3. Sensitivity: Our Spiritual Awareness
  4. Growth: The Inevitable Result of Healthy Life
  5. Reproduction: Multiplying Life, Creating the Future
  6. Excretion: Getting Rid of the Junk
  7. Nutrition: A Diet That Makes a Difference

Nutrition is necessary for life. Without the right kind of nutrition, and a steady intake of food that is good for you, you will slowly die. There is no way around that. In the same way, a wholesome spiritual diet enables us as individuals, and as a vibrant church, to function as a healthy living organism—displaying all of the signs of life! For disciples of Jesus, there is only one main course. Christ himself is the bread of life and the well of living water.

In the final message of our series, pastor David shares how we can receive Christ through a regular routine of spiritual disciplines. Practicing these fundamentals of the faith places us on the path of obedience, and produces a life of fulfillment in the Kingdom.
