The Over–the–Shoulder Syndrome  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 14: 25–33
Summary: We have a natural tendency to change our minds and rethink our decisions. We want to retain every possibility and travel every path. But this characteristic seems at odds with Jesus’ call to count the cost before following him. But we can learn that such looking back, while disconcerting, can be an opportunity to recommit to our commitments. Most of the time, especially in our commitments to God and to other people, we’re better off to leave the bridges burned and stay on the side of the river we’ve chosen.

Following Jesus to the Last Brick  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 14: 25–33
Summary: Although Jesus’ call to sacrifice sounds too extreme, following Jesus enables us to grow a strong faith and engage in spiritual warfare. What Jesus does within us and the battles he enables us to fight bring the gratification of true discipleship.
