Guest preacher Bill Burns spoke on who is Jesus yesterday in the beginning to his two part sermon. While many great points were given the one that hit me the hardest was the challenge to give up more areas of my life to Christ lordship. If we are honest, we have a hard time in our individualist society being dependent on someone else. And we were created to be dependent on Christ.

Jesus tells us to “Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things [what you eat, drink, and wear] will be given to you as well” (Matthew 6:33). Unlike the pagans who “run after all these things” and “worry about tomorrow,” believers are told to follow Christ, live a radical life of faith, and trust God to provide (Matthew 6:25-34).
In this passage, Jesus says that God cares for the birds. Yet birds aren’t created in God’s image. Christ didn’t die for birds. The Holy Spirit doesn’t indwell birds. Birds won’t reign with Christ. But we will! So Christ asks his disciples, “Are you not much more valuable than they?” (Matthew 6:26). If he takes care of the less valuable creatures, will he not take care of us, who are far more valuable?
