08-25-2019 Sermon - Not "Have It Your Way"

For forty years Burger King employed the slogan "Have It Your Way". This was an effective slogan, for indeed we like to have it our way. We can also identify with the Frank Sinatra's hit "I Did It My Way". But when it comes to spiritual matters, and to the kingdom of God, the slogan and the sentiment can be deadly. Jesus taught us to pray, "Thy kingdom come!" When it comes to our salvation God has determined the way that leads to life. He has provided the door. And the door is God's Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, and we walk through this door led by the Holy Spirit with repentance.
