Discovering the Essentials of the Christian Life

Matt Brown Week 1

Let's be real– Christians spend a lot of time arguing about things that don't really matter, and it can be hard to figure out what is most important. Would it make you feel better to know that Jesus was very clear on what is essential for your faith? It doesn't have to be confusing! Check out Pastor Matt's message on the essentials for a good Christian life, and how you can become a stronger and more loving believer.

Think about Jesus’s two essentials: loving God/others, and the great commission. What are your thoughts and feelings as you reflect on these essentials? Think about Jesus telling Martha that Mary had made the better choice in how she spent her time at that moment. How can obeying this teaching keep you from being pulled away by non-essentials? Ask God to reveal if you are heading in the wrong direction, that He will lead you & correct you.

Whether you are a new Christian or have been a Christian for a long time, we all need to be asking ourselves, ‘What are the next steps for me in my personal walk with Jesus?’ Maybe you’re new to faith and don’t know where to start. Maybe you want to go deeper in your faith but don’t know how. Over the next 10 weeks, Sandals Church will be teaching through a masterclass of the essentials of a Christian life; what it looks like to follow Jesus and continue his work of multiplication in our individual lives.
