Labor: Costs & Benefits

Luke 14:25-27

 

Synopsis: This is Labor Day weekend in the United States.  It is a national holiday established to celebrate the labor force in the country.  Labor Day has influenced the way I phrased the title of my sermon today.  You already have that mind set and that will fit well with the text for today (Luke 14:25-33).  Have you ever considered the cost and benefits ratio of your job if you still have a job?  I assure you that someone has and you should. 

      Now let’s transition to the spiritual side of like.  Have you ever considered the cost and benefits ratio of being a disciple of Jesus Christ?  I assure you, on the basis of the teaching of Scripture, God has and you should too.  I believe the benefits of discipleship will inspire believers to “labor on” as a disciple of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

      Believers in the Lord Jesus Christ are called to be much more than simply members of a church.  They are called to be disciples and commissioned to make disciples of other believers. 

      Though believers in the Lord Jesus Christ have many choices as how to act out their faith in relationship with others they should consider themselves to be merely volunteers.  They are called to be disciples, commanded to act like one and commissioned to make disciples of other believers.

 

Text (NLT): Luke 14:25-33; Jeremiah 18:1-11; 29:11 Deuteronomy 30:15-20;

 

Scripture Reading: Psalm 139:13-18
