Can you serve Jesus and still enjoy your life?

One Story: Everything Matters

Two Distinctions: some things matter more

Everything still matters
-Loving God requires a separate world
-Redemption requires creation

1 John 2:15-17 NIV
15 Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. 16 For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. 17 The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.

1 Peter 2:11 NIV
11 Dear friends, I urge you, as foreigners and exiles, to abstain from sinful desires, which wage war against your soul.

Colossians 3:1-2 NIV
1 Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.

2 Corinthians 4:18 NIV
18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

-Embrace both earthly pleasure and heavenly purpose
-Do your callings
-Enjoy Sabbath rest
