DTR – Commitment and Pace

Pastor Isaiah Board

January 24, 2021

  • Commitment and pace are critical to a defined relationship with Jesus.

Luke 9:57-62  //  As they were walking along the road, a man said to him, “I will follow you wherever you go.”Jesus replied, “Foxes have dens and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.” He said to another man, “Follow me.” But he replied, “Lord, first let me go and bury my father.” Jesus said to him, “Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and proclaim the kingdom of God.” Still another said, “I will follow you, Lord; but first let me go back and say goodbye to my family.” Jesus replied, “No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God.”

  • Let's do it!
  • Not just yet
  • Give me a second
  • God wants obedience, not sacrifice.
  • God isn’t impressed with what a mouth can say, but with what a heart will obey.

John 14:15  //  If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.

  • Today is the best day!
  • Forward is the only option.

Proverbs 27:1  //  Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring.
