February Pastor Message

“Jesus Is on Our Side”

How often the spokesmen for certain “causes” will appeal to Jesus’ teaching to support their cause. Liberals or conservatives, left-leaning or right-leaning, centrists or extremists, can use bits and pieces of Jesus’ teaching to “prove” the value of their agenda, or the “rightness” of their cause. 

Leaders during Jesus’ earthly life had a hard time with him – they simply couldn’t put him into any category they were familiar with. 

That’s because Jesus doesn’t fit any categories. Jesus is truly unique. His “agenda” isn’t about a particular platform or earthly agenda. He is all about helping people know him, and as a result, transforming people to think, talk, and act like him. 

As Dallas preacher Tony Evans has said, “Jesus didn’t come to take sides; he came to take over!”

It’s what we’ll explore in the month of February, as we prepare for the season of Lent and ask ourselves, “How is my transformation coming along?”
