Have you ever Google searched the question, “What are the most common things people think are in the Bible, that are NOT actually in the Bible?”
To save you the effort, here are a few things you’ll find when you Google that question:
“Cleanliness is next to godliness.”
“God helps those who help themselves.”
“Hate the sin, love the sinner.”
While each of those statements are often quoted, none of them are found in the Bible.
This summer we’ll be diving into a series called, That’s NOT What He Said, which will remind us of what Jesus actually taught and said about living life as true followers of His.
By listening, learning and applying what Jesus actually taught, this series will certainly lead every person to a closer walk with Him.
In a world where people like to be first in line, Jesus shows us that to be first we really must be the servant. To make a difference we must help and serve others from the goodness of our hearts. Jesus was the example we can all follow. He didn’t come as a King sitting on a throne being waited on as a celebrity. Instead, He came serving people out of love. He healed people, out of His compassion. He taught people, out of His wisdom. He loved people, who were unlovely and were outcasts in their community. Finally, He gave His very life as a ransom and saved us from our sins. From the beginning to the end Jesus was a servant. And, He calls us to be the same, but be forewarned…doesn’t come naturally, it’s an attitude of the heart.
