Repentance means to turn from sin. An authentic Christian conversion involves turning to God and turning from Sin at the same time. People turn to God without turning from sin, and people turn from sin without turning to God. One without the other is empty of salvation, and a real Christian has done both at once.
Stewards are simply managers of another’s property or business. Everything we have belongs to God, and this applies to a whole lot more than money. Is Jesus the Lord over your entire life?
The Christian is being transformed into a new creation that looks more and more like Jesus over time. This comes from outside us, but we must cooperate with it.

Today we learn about the value of the great commission and creating a culture of making disciples in our church family.
We understand that while Grace is free to the disciple of Christ, it cannot be so cheap as to cost nothing. It cost our Lord, and the calling to accept Grace is one that expects everything. This may seem like paradox, but after you hear this message, it will all make sense.
Grace and Lordship are two sides to the same coin. Today we open up a new sermon series named after our church fellowship.
