What difference can I really make? [The Art of... pt 5]

We all have the ability to be the change we wish to see in the world. But this type of life doesn’t just happen by accident. It’s the result of conscious and committed choices about how we live… but we don’t have to do it alone. The secret to becoming the change we wish to see is discovered when we practice the art of following Jesus.

Main Points:
[01:34] Jesus is the hope of the world and he has chosen his church to shine that hope to the world.
[02:36] One of the most central and most difficult practices in the art of following Jesus is practicing service on purpose.
[03:51] We often view following Jesus through the lens of “What can I get out of this?”
[05:06] Following Jesus requires a complete transformation of how we see the world.
[07:15] In the Kingdom of God, greatness is measured by how much of our life is spent meeting other people’s needs.
[08:15] We practice service on purpose because Jesus purposely served us.
[09:36] When your focus is only on you soon you’ll only have you to focus on.
[10:17] Service exercises our trust in Jesus
[10:46] Our goal is to become a community of “blessing people” who practice service on purpose
[16:39] In the art of following Jesus we love God by purposely loving our neighbors.

Invitation: [11:07]
