Overrated – 3 Weeks (November 5-19)


The definition of overrated is anything that is given too much hype. We all know things that we would consider to be overrated, but there are lots of things that are overrated when it comes to Jesus and growing to be more like Him. Come find out what those are in this series, Overrated.


Week 1 // The Point: There is a difference between trying and training. // Key Verse: 1 Timothy 4:7

Week 2 // The Point: God is not interested in your spiritual life, He is interested in your entire life. // Key Verses: Luke 10:38-42

Week 3 // The Point: A life worth living is a life worth losing. // Key Verses: Philippians 1:21


We all have favorites. We all have things that we love, things at the top of our list, things that we would rate really high, but the reality is that some things in life are simply overrated!

In this series, we’ll look at a couple of areas that we may have heard are important when it comes to God, but the reality is that they’re overrated.

In the first week of Overrated, we’ll talk about how being like Jesus is overrated. The reality is, it’s the difference between trying to be like Jesus and training to be like Jesus.

In week two, we’ll discuss how through our actions and the way we live our lives, we’re basically saying, “Spending time with Jesus is overrated.” Jesus doesn’t just want our time; He wants our hearts.

In the third and final week of Overrated, we will look at how our culture tells us that living for Christ is overrated. We constantly hear the message that we need to look out for ourselves, make a name for ourselves, take care of ourselves. But if we call ourselves Christians, our lives should be about living for Jesus.
