Monday Mini-Sermon

Sin will complicate your life in unholy ways
The blessings of God will complicate your life in holy ways
But it's still a complication. 

When I got married it complicated my life. 
Praise God for complications! 
We have three complications named Parker, Summer, and Josiah. 
Praise God for our three complications! 

More income equals more complicated taxes. 
May God complicate our lives, Amen? 
And increased influence complicates life in complicated ways.

My point? Part of counting the cost, when it comes to following Christ, 
is allowing God to complicate our lives in holy ways. 
Are you willing to allow God to complicate your life?
