Till death do us part – Quality time – Sermon notes

EVERYTHING wants your time

“Nobody ever asks you to accomplish your priorities; they only ask you to accomplish theirs.” – Carey Nieuwhof

TODAY’s BIG IDEA: Until you see Jesus, you’re blind to what matters most

Mark 10:32-52

Open your eyes to what Jesus wants you to prioritize

In a world that will fight for every moment of your time

Are you willing to stop and ask Jesus what HE wants you to do?

  • Make the time, THIS WEEK, to read your bible, pray, join a Small group
    • Take a step in following Jesus

Till Death do us part – Cost of living Sermon notes

When choosing a place to live you want to consider the COST OF LIVING

But you also need to consider the QUALITY OF LIFE

TODAY’S BIG IDEA: The Kingdom of God has a HIGH COST OF LIVING, but there is no greater QUALITY OF LIFE

Mark 9:30-10:31

Ask yourself 2 questions:
1. Where do you want to live for eternity?
2. Are you willing to pay the high cost of living for Jesus?

THIS WEEK: In every situation, ask yourself:
“What does Jesus want me to do?”

H.B.O. – Believe

TODAY’S BIG IDEA: If you want something to grow, you better pay attention to where you plant

  • The condition of your heart determines how your faith grows

Mark 3:7 – Mark 6:6 (Slightly out of order)

What kind of soil is your heart?

Cultivate the Soil of your heart

Sow the Seed of God’s word wherever you go

  • It’s a numbers game

Matthew 9:37-38 – Jesus said to his disciples, “The harvest is great, but the workers are few. 38 So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields.”


TODAY’S BIG IDEA: You can’t HEAR if you’re not LISTENING!

It’s one thing to have trouble hearing, but it’s another to not listen.

In any relationship, it’s important to listen…especially when it comes to your relationship with God

You can’t HEAR if you’re not LISTENING!

In order to OBEY, we have to BELIEVE. This means we need to HEAR which is why we need to LISTEN

MARK 1 & 2 – When people HEAR about Jesus, they always respond

You can’t HEAR if you’re not LISTENING!

It’s very hard to hear when you’re distracted – cut out the distractions that keep your from hearing God

Read God’s Word and Pray
