Pastor Ryan Emmons’ January 2022 sermon series, “But Because He Said So”, looks at some of the times that Jesus asked people to do something that seemed crazy, and what happened when they took him at his word and did it anyway “because he said so”. The series is based on the story of the miraculous catch of fish in Luke 5. What can we learn from what, how and who Jesus asks, and the responses of people to his requests? How might this affect our responses to what Jesus asks us to do?
1. Faith is about obedience. What was a time when God used an act of obedience to grow your faith?
2. Is God stirring a passion in you that would require a step of obedience in faith? If yes, what is it? If not, why do you think that is?
“But even if he doesn’t, we want to make it clear…we will never serve your gods
or worship the gold statue you have set up.” ~ Daniel 3:18 (NLT) “即 或 不 然 ， 王 啊 ， 你 当 知 道 我 们 决 不 事 奉 你 的 神 ， 也 不 敬 拜 你 所 立 的 金 像 。” ~ 但 以 理 書 3:18 (CUVS)
