This sermon describes the ongoing preparation and transformation in our hearts by the Gospel. The Gospel challenges our desires and thinking into an intimacy and conformity to Christ. Our own desires keep us from God and from embracing the call of Christ, so we must have our desires realigned. In the passage, Jesus challenges those listening about what they are satisfied by. We must allow this exposing to take place, and then to allow the Gospel to transform those desires into Godâ€™s call for us. We are to seek the Kingdom of God, and then all things will be given to us. But the things that are given to us are not the desires of our flesh, but new desires aligned with Godâ€™s Kingdom. We are to let go of ourselves and face what the Gospel shows us. Unless you conform to Christ, you have no life in you. If you will give your life to Christ, He will give you life. As Christâ€™s disciple, there will be separation in your life. The Gospel requires something of us, but we are rewarded with eternal life in the end. If you will lose your life now, and allow the Gospel to realign your life, you will gain your life forever. Jesus knows that this work will be uncomfortable in your life, but He will reward you with everlasting life if you endure. Give yourself to this unseen work. God is shaping us for something far greater than ourselves and our desires. Christ asks each of us, do you want to go away and be satisfied with your flesh? Or are you willing to go through the transformation and have Christ as your prize? You must realize that there is no greater calling or commitment than Godâ€™s call in your life, and continue to press in and allow this work and transformation in your life.
