Part 2 -- What Jesus Deems Urgent in Life
A sermon by Jason Folkerts, delivered on March 18, 2012.
Part of the "120 Hours To Live" series of sermons.
We all feel a sense of urgency in our lives from time to time. Certainly there are different levels of urgency that require more of our attention than others - for example, getting all those presents bought and wrapped for Christmas versus finding out you may have only six months left to live. Both are urgent on their own specific level, but clearly we would all agree that one is far more critical and urgent than the other.
Maybe one of the more challenging aspects of “urgency” is learning to place those things that we deem so important in their proper perspective. What are your urgencies? Do they have an impact on your faith or others? Do you even feel a sense of spiritual urgency in your daily life? Did Jesus challenge us to have a spiritual urgency to our faith? I think these are vital questions for those who follow after Christ.
My prayer for you this morning is that we can open up the door a bit wider in order to understand the importance Jesus placed on what is urgent to Him and His Church.
