Irresistible Faith #2

C.S. Lewis said, "When we read history, we find that those who did the most for the present world are also the ones who thought the most of the next."

Luke 12:13-21
  1. He is short-sighted
  2. He is depending on created things to do for him what only his creator can do.
    • Every pursuit of ultimate satisfaction outside of God himself will lead to less satisfaction.
We all have a "Precious" of some kind. Identifying the precious...
  • How do you spend your money?
  • What do you think about?
  • What triggers your anxieties?
  • What parts of the Bible are you most prone to avoid?
Every precious besides Jesus will disappoint!

Nicodemus & the Rich Young Ruler...
  • Both of these men are supposedly living the dream.
  • Understand this: some people lose their happiness by having their counterfeit gods taken from them...others lose their happiness by having their counterfeit gods given to them.
Everything minus Jesus equals nothing & Jesus plus nothing equals everything.

How do we trade our counterfeits for the real thing?
  • We must begin to form a new affection.
  • God have mercy on us if we consider any possession or any THING to be so precious that we would choose it over God.
How Far is Jesus asking us to go? Luke 14:26
  • He and he alone is the true hidden treasure worth selling everything we possess in order to possess.
Captivating Love...
  • When he is our everything, our hearts will have no choice but to live him first and to love him most.
  • The way to gain life is to lose it.
