Being a ‘No Limit’ Disciple

February 19, 2017

Ephesians 1:3-14

We too often and too easily are frightened to trust God with BHAGs. A BHAG is a Big, Hairy and Audacious Goal that God inspires in our hearts. Disciples are called to follow through on them, but we rationalize them away. We fear pushing the limits and then dealing with the consequences. Paul reminds the Church in Ephesus to stop limiting God and the goals God has for us. We can be a “no limit” disciple for Jesus and bring great glory to the Lord.

Luke 14:25-33

“Daring Greatly is Success”

Success is NOT defined by reaching the goal you set for yourself. Success is the ACT of DOING something to reach your goal, whether you get there or reach a different goal from that which you first aimed. And that means daring greatly in some endeavor that feeds your soul. It’s getting out of the spectator’s seat and getting into the arena and daring to try.

Luke 4:16-30

“Let Go of ‘Them’ and Be ‘You’!”

In a different track from last week, one of the ways we aim incorrectly in being who we are is we try to be someone whom others have told us we should be. We try to meet expectations of our culture, our community, even our church or family! But God wants you to be who YOU are, who God created YOU to be. Jesus has a plan.

Matthew 5:13-16

“Crossing the Gap from Where You Are to Where You Want To Be”

We all have a desire to fulfill our dreams of becoming the person we imagine is strong, respected, loved, and makes a difference. But we also find ourselves feeling we are stuck, or making very little progress in becoming that person. Jesus’ message about being salt and light gives us a clue of how to cross the gap between where we are where we want to be.

Mark 5:1-20

“Our Armor is Destroying Us”

Imagine wearing armor like a knight that limits your movement as well as your ability to see. It’s extremely hot inside and cooks you in the sun. While it protects you from arrows and swords, it suffocates you and you pass out on the field of battle and die. The armor we put on to protect ourselves from being hurt by rejection and the like also suffocates our spirits and can destroy us. Jesus offers you a new way to dress that will give you life.
