Series Summary: In life we pursue many things in the search for satisfaction. Sometimes God can seem like one more pursuit in a long list of possibilities. God invites us to the simple pursuit of following Jesus and to be centered in Him.
Series Scripture:Psalm 119:10 “I'm single-minded in pursuit of you; don't let me miss the road signs you've posted.” The Message
Pursuing Freedom in Jesus
Core Truth: God invites us to pursue a life of freedom in Jesus. This is more than freedom to not do certain things; it is freedom to enjoy living for God by responding to the Holy Spirit. This freedom produces fruit that no amount of law can ever produce.
Core Truth: We want to be happy and we pursue happiness almost at any cost. It doesn’t seem possible that in pursuing holiness through Jesus we can be happy with the utter relief of living as God designed us to!
Core Truth: If only our first love was always our final love. Like children we chase after other loves and our devotion to Jesus becomes divided. Thankfully God keeps calling us back to our first love and to pursue Him with unadulterated devotion.
Core Truth: The greatest pursuit we will ever make is the pursuit to know Jesus Christ. Everything else pales into insignificance compared to the experience of intimacy with Him. Every day is part of the journey to know Him more.
