Breaking the Idol of Ideas / by David Flowers

Sermon Title: Breaking the Idol of Ideas
Scripture Reading: Mark 10:17-22; James 2:14-17; Deuteronomy 12:1-3

The process of discipleship teaches us how to live in the Kingdom of God right now, right here, today. That’s what is offered to us as disciples of Jesus. Too often, people think to “go deep” with God means to simply accumulate more information about the Bible, or knowing more about Jesus. Many Christians have believed that new ideas change people.

While God can use a new idea, belief, or doctrine to deepen our walk, ultimately, it is acting on what we say we believe that transforms us in the Spirit. Jesus wants us to get our LIFE from him. Having good ideas and adopting sound doctrine is not enough. In this message, pastor David says it’s time that we break the idol of ideas, where we realize that right thinking isn’t enough, and move on to faithful obedience to the voice of Christ. Listen as David challenges us to jump in the deep end.
