Project Description

Sometimes we may hear a sermon and feel inspired to try to be better and improve, but then shortly after leaving church, someone cuts us off, we lose our temper, and there goes all the good feelings of “trying” to be more like Jesus. In truth, we can never be more like Jesus by sheer effort, by trying; instead, we must train daily, as an athlete would, to be better. Spiritual disciplines exist so that we can train to become more like Christ by growing in the nine fruits of the Spirit. In this opening message that is kicking off a series exploring spiritual disciplines, Pastor Evan talks about the difference between trying to be like Jesus and training to be like Jesus for our ministry in the world.

Scripture: 1 Corinthians 9:19-27
