Tased by Jesus

Dear Mosaic Family , One of the cardinal rules of public speaking is: "Don't be boring!" I remember a preaching professor in seminary used to say, "Preaching a boring sermon is a deadly sin!" Why? Because the Gospel is anything but boring. Jesus is the most interesting man in the world (sorry Dos Equis guy). As the most interesting man in the world, Jesus' words are the most riveting words in the history of the world. His words are so interesting because they are so scandalous! Over and over in the Gospel accounts, crowds are amazed, astonished, shocked! They marvel, they tremble, they worship. Our culture needs to be shocked by Jesus. We need to be constantly re-shocked by Jesus. We are the most entertained and pleasured society in the history of the world, and still, we're the most bored.  We've grown numb to God and to each other. We need to be tased by God's shocking truth and grace.

Join us this tomorrow as we look at continue our sermon series through the "Hard Sayings of Jesus." Tomorrow, we'll be looking at Jesus' shocking words in Matthew 8:18-22, and Matthew 10:34-39.

God Bless, Pastor Jan
