In this video summary of our bible study from Sunday, November 29, 2009, I discuss our budget, how the numbers work, and what the bible says about giving, primarily from 1 and 2 Corinthians. This ended up being a "Part 1" because I ran out of time (big surprise!), so "Part 2" will be next week.
In this sermon from 1 Thessalonians, we looked at how Paul encourages Christians to be thankful for each other and to love each other. But what about people who are difficult to love? The only way we can truly love each other with godly love is to rely on God. This is how we grow in holiness--learning to trust God more and more, which leads us to greater love for others.
Sermon: Become Holy by Loving Others
Text = 1 Thessalonians 3:9-13.
Theme = If we have increasing love for each other and increasing holiness in our lives, that is enough while we wait for the Lord.
In this audio reflection, approximately 7 minutes long, I discuss an article I read about organizing politically. I apply the ideas from that article to evangelism and discuss what it might look like if we focused evangelism around listening to others, sharing our story with them, and asking them for a small commitment.
In this video devotional, I contrast Paul teaching in 1 Timothy 6:6-11, 17-19 about godliness and contentment with his teaching against love of money and pursuit of material possessions.
In this video I share my thoughts about our Thanksgiving Outreach ministry.
In this sermon, I use Deuteronomy 8:6-18 as a test case for examining how we should find encouragement to obey God by remembering all that he's done for us, is still doing for us, and will do for us.
Sermon: Thanksgiving and Remembrance
From Deuteronomy 8:6-18.
God wants us to obey. Being thankful for what he has done for us and remembering his acts of grace towards us will help us obey him.
In this video devotional I look at how Jesus calls us to put action behind our intention to serve him. Inaction never solves a problem.
In this video devotional, I look at how we need to find balance between our personal spiritual disciplines and our action towards others in Jesus' name.
