Living Invitations 18

August 27, 20170 Comments

We are posting our Living Invitations series here on Online Ministry Training as well as the Preaching in Shorts website. This weeks message wraps up the sub-series on discipleship. Over the last tow messages we talked about counting the cost of being a disciple. In this message we talk about being yoked to Jesus and being willing to pick up the towel. The yoke is about submitting our will to His and learning from Him by following His example for life. Picking up the towel is about having a servants heart. As we do these things as His disciples we are able to experience rest for our souls, the full and abundant now and forever life that Jesus came for us to have.

August 24, 20170 Comments

Our Online Ministry Training Bible Study continues this week in Numbers Chapter 3. The first two chapters of the Book of Numbers prepares the people of Israel for their march towards the promised land by getting them counted and organized for the journey and for the battles that awaited them. This chapter gets the Levites counted and prepared for the ministry that God has for them in taking care of the Tabernacle and other ministry duties including assisting the priests, Aaron and his two remaining sons. The priests are a picture of our great high priest Jesus, and the Levites are a good picture of the church as the hands and feet of Jesus.

This weeks Online Ministry Training ministry chat for Living Invitations Part 18. As we prepare for this weekends message to finish up our sub series on discipleship we are going to be talking about a yoke and a towel. Having counted the cost of being a disciple in our last two messages, this week we are looking at teaming up with Jesus by being yoked to Him. A yoke is a farming implement that puts two oxen together so that they can share the burden. We are invited to be yoked to Jesus who carries the burden and leads the way for us. We are also going to look at the last supper and talk about how Jesus picked up the towel and washed His disciples feet demonstrating that the heart of a real disciple is one of servant hood.

Living Invitations 17

We are continuing our Living Invitations series here on Online Ministry Training. In this weeks message we are talking once again about discipleship. We are using a passage in Luke to help look at the cost of a being a disciple. We need to love God all in. Our love for Him is to be our highest priority. As we love Him like this, we will love others better. We need to realize that this life is not all about us. It is some about us but it is all about Jesus! We are change in God’s pocket and He can spend us however He wants. Understanding that this is His story, He is the noun and we are the adjectives will allow us to experience the full and abundant life He has provided for us.
