This sermon continued our series in Matthew on Choosing Jesus. This week, we looked at Matthew 8-11 and looked at the responses people made to Jesus, either by true faith (i.e., the centurion in 8:5-13) or by "fake faith" (i.e., the Pharisees in several spots in 8-9).
The main point for the sermon was this: Jesus calls us to absolute, radical trust in him. To trust him, we need to serve him (not ourselves), overcome our fears and worries about trusting him, and refocus our lives around his values.
My point of application was this: Find one person to serve this week, or one way of serving others. By doing this, you trust Jesus: you're serving him as you serve others, you're overcoming your fears and worries as you learn to trust him in service, and you're refocusing your life around his values by becoming someone who serves others (just like Jesus).
