Good Wine For A Lame Party (3 of 7)
Series: Jesus the Wildman
Pastor Jesse Bradley
A LAME PARTY:
A healthy spiritual life might include some parties.
No contact = No impact.
No difference = No impact.
A crisis does not eliminate all of our choices.
Matthew 5:13-16, Proverbs 25:28, John 7:1-9, Mark 2:15-17, 2 Timothy 4:5
The Jars = An outrageous choice.
Find out if the ritual is from God.
Don't get stuck in empty rituals.
The Wine = A dangerous choice.

Jesus introduces something better than rules.
Matthew 28:18-20, Matthew 23:25-28, Ephesians 5:18-20, Proverbs 23:29-35, Isaiah 55:1-3

3) Remember transformation is more important than

James 1:16-17, Psalm 8, Acts 17:22-34, Romans 8:28-29, Luke 5:1-11
