Being COUNTER CULTURAL means finding freedom in being yoked to Christ


In the series we are looking how Jesus challenges us to live differently. Jesus calls to love Him and love others in a radical way. We will live as those who have been transformed, because we have been transformed by Him. Transformed people live transformed lives. However, living transformed lives is done in isolation and it is not easy. It means turning away from our idols and seeking him to help us live counter culturally.

In this sermon, Pastor Humphreys talks about Matthew 11:25-30 about how Jesus invites us to find rest by giving up our burden to Him and taking on His yoke.

Matthew 11:25-30

The Father Revealed in the Son

25 At that time Jesus said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. 26 Yes, Father, for this is what you were pleased to do.

27 “All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.

28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
