Last night, we kicked off the theme of When Heaven and Earth Collide, based out of Matthew 5-7, the Sermon on the Mount. We heard from Kyle Idleman last night, and he talked about how following Jesus is risky, because His teachings are dangerous and crazy. His sermon was on video, and he was teaching while he was trying to learn how to ride a bull . . . which is crazy and scary! But his point was that we instinctively avoid things that are unfamiliar or uncomfortable for us, and so are a lot of Jesus’ teachings. The bull-rider throughout the video was teaching Kyle how to ride a bull, and he said, “You can’t just kind of ride a bull, and you can’t just kind of follow Jesus.” At the end of the day, you have to hold on tight and give it all you’ve got.
Pray for us today continue to learn more about God as our Father, and that we would listen to what He would have for us.
