Words With Friends

Keep the main thing the main thing. That’s easy to say, but not so easy to do. It’s easy to get overwhelmed by all the things there are to do in life. We often struggle to determine what the most important things are.

Yet, before he left this world, Jesus actually shared some pretty clear and concise directives for his disciples. “These are the things you need to do.”

In this series we’re going to explore some of the most important words Jesus shared with his disciples, his friends, and learn how to do a better job of keeping the main thing the main thing.

To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples.” John 8:31

May 2-4 Remain in Me (Confirmation) John 15:1-8
In grace God has brought us into his family through faith in Christ. That’s where we want to stay in life and in death.
May 9-11 Love One Another (Mother’s Day) John 15:9-17
Through his life and death Jesus taught us that God’s love is a self-sacrificing love that finds fulfillment in serving others. All we do in life is to be marked by this type of love.
May 16-17 You Are My Witnesses (Ascension) Luke 24:44-53
In this world we have titles like nurse, teacher, mechanic, mother, father, etc. But Jesus reminds us that as members of his family we all share just one title: witnesses.
May 23-25 My Peace I Give You (Pentecost) John 14:25-27
In life we are constantly searching for the one thing that will truly satisfy. Jesus is the only one who can give us that one thing.
May 30-June 1 Go and Make Disciples (Trinity) Matthew 28:18-20
Discipleship is not a spectator sport. Jesus calls us to take up the tools of Word and sacrament and introduce the whole world to the one true saving God.
