Project Description

Series Overview

In every lifetime, there are a few “moments” – those times when you need to make a choice, a really big decision about which way to go. Should I go away to school or stay local? Should I ask her to marry me? Should I say yes? Is this the right house? Right job? Right person for me? Those moments – those decisions – often have lifelong impacts that reverberate well into our futures. In week one of our new series, “Decision Points,” we begin to look at normal people, just like you and me, who had a decision to make about Jesus. What did they do with Him? What have you done with Him? After all – we all have a decision to make – a really big one!

You know the old saying about what happens when you “assume” – “you make a (you know what) out of u and me.” Wrong assumptions and bad information almost always result in bad decisions. We see this in political and financial realms all the time. But, how about with God? What if what we assume to be true about God, or what everyone says about God, happens to be radically incorrect? What are the consequences in our lives now, and on into eternity, of our bad decisions regarding God? We see in the Bible that not everyone who came seeking Jesus decided to follow Jesus. When their assumptions about Him were corrected, some just decided to walk away. This Sunday, we look at one of the most troubling stories in Jesus’s ministry and ask ourselves a very profound question: Have I made wrong assumptions about Him and walked away, too?
