Last week I preached at my old youth pastor’s current church, and the title of my sermon was “Jesus Doesn’t Care.” I talked about 5 things that Jesus doesn’t care about. Here are my notes:

Do you know what airplane talk is? It is when you sit down and talk about stuff that really doesn’t matter to the other people. I’ve been on 8 airplanes this month, and each time I sit down, I think about airplane talk. It’s the small talk you make with the people that are sitting around you that you don’t really think is all that important. Sometimes, I’m sitting there thinking that I don’t really care about what they are telling me. I am just listening to them to be nice or to make the time pass, but really the stuff we talk about is stuff that I don’t care about.
