Chris spoke this morning on the way we should be walking in the Lord. Humiliation is healthy for us everyone in a while so we can stay humble. It’s humility that seems to breed kindness, because then we understand what others are going through so we can be empathetic and forgiving.
One of the members of the congregation, Jamie Reynolds, spoke this evening from Psalm 33. Psalm 33 is a beautiful display of the power of God in Creation, the control of God in the affairs of men, and the intimate nature He has with each one of us.
One of our members, Wes Peters, spoke this evening on Biblical principles taken from his favorite sport: football. What are you doing with your Bills? Are you a Steeler of God’s time? Are you a pew Packer? Are you facing the Giants with God on your side? Have you become a Saint?
Nate spoke this morning on the importance of being more than just an admirer or a fan of Jesus. Knowing Jesus and becoming a disciple of His teachings are very demanding uses of our time…but time well-spent.
When we have disappointments in our life, how do we handle them. Do we allow them to bring us closer to God? or do we throw in the towel on God? We must get this right. It is one of Satan’s many tools against us!
Chris spoke this morning on the importance of allowing God’s light to shine brightly through us. We need to be scared to death of the dark (spiritually speaking) because the absence of light means the absence of God. Are you shining brightly for God?
Romans 7 uses a great analogy in marriage to help us see our need to be dead to sin and alive through Christ.
Nate spoke this morning on the world-view of selfish love. Our society bombards us from everywhere we turn with the idea that we want or feel is all that matters. However, the Bible teaches selfless and unconditional love. Love that is for the good of someone else…not ourselves.
Looking at the Bible account from Genesis 4, Cain and Able still teach us today how to serve God with the proper attitude.
Meekness is recognizing where our strength actually comes from, and then subjects that strength to the will of God.
