Sacrifice to life

North Point Community Church   – Saturday June 24 – “Heroes: Losing Is the New Winning”

2 greatest fears:

  1. Death
  2. Public Humiliation

A resurrection is worth dying for.  Jesus knew a resurrection is worth dieing for.

Sacrifice ALWAYS brings life.   There is always life after sacrifice.   There is only one way to save – sacrifice to life… There is only one way to save relationship at work, with wife, with kids, with friends, with parents, with health (weight),  with finances, with marriage.

There is no guarantee of a better life without going through the sacrifice first.  When you think about this it all becomes so clear.    The IRONY is, we don’t want to suffer and we don’t want to sacrifice to save what we are suffering over (health, relationships, finances)  BUT we ARE ALREADY SUFFERING!   It is already hard to be in a place you do not want to be in.  We are already miserable.

SO, why not go ahead and suffer and make your life miserable in a way that brings life? By laying your life down, and denying yourself and say no and move in their direction.  Why not move in a way that promises resurrection on the other side.

Jesus death and resurection is a model of how we are supposed to live our lives every day.
