Where To From Here? (7 of 7)
Series: Jesus the Wildman
Dr. Larry Osborne
WHAT JUST HAPPENED?
A LOOK BACK AT THE VERY FIRST WEEKEND OF SERVICE
- Getting Ready:
- Before they went out to serve, Jesus thinned the herd.
- Serving Others:
Luke 10:1-17/ Matthew 4:23-24/ Matthew 26:6-15
- They weren't sent out just to do good deeds.
- They were sent out as Jesus' advance team.
- They focused on those who were open to their message.
- Reporting Back:
Luke 10:17/ Acts 14:26-27/ Acts 15:1-4/ Acts 21:17-19
WHAT MAKES AN EVENT LIKE THIS SO IMPORTANT?
- A Surprising Response:
Luke 10:18-21/ Mark 8:36-38/ 1 Peter 2:10-12/ 2 Corinthians 9:11-13
- Poverty, injustice and poor health are not life's biggest problem.
- Words without good deeds lack credibility.

- What Does God Want?
Matthew 22:36-40/ John 14:15/ Matthew 7:12
- Genuine spirituality loves God AND our neighbor
That means we need both obedience and compassion.
- The Most Important Thing:
- What we do throughout the year is far more important than anything we'll ever do on a weekend.
