Walk in Love

There is one overriding characteristic that is an absolute requirement for Christians–love. We are to love God supremely, love others within the fellowship of believers, love our neighbor, and even love our enemies.

Spectator or Participant?

There are numerous places in Scripture that inform us about how Christians ought to act. There are no places in Scripture that inform us about how Christians ought to sit on the sidelines and watch.

Before You Step

Many people when starting a race tend to begin a little quick. They start so fast that they end up burning out before they make it to the finish line. Or, even worse, they step wrong and injure themselves. So, before we take that first step into enemy territory, we need to make sure we focus on the right things.

New Beginnings

We are, of course, going through interesting times, difficult times, and even sad times. However, I also believe that God is still in control, and that this time can be useful to us in order to evaluate and re-engage. When this is all over, it won’t go back to the same old “normal.” So, we should use this time to make a new beginning…

Love Those Who Hate You

We were privileged to have Rev. Bill Reynolds in our service yesterday, hear an update on the ministry in Rhode Island, and hear a wonderful message on the need for Christians to love people…even those who hate us.

Lesson Learned?

One way of looking at life is that it is a series of lessons that we must learn. We know that the Lord teaches us lessons. The question is, have we learned the lessons that God has tried to teach us?

Responses

When we choose to disobey God, we are faced with the response to that decision. The response of God, the response of other people, and our own response. Sadly, we often fail to realize the unintended consequences of our sin and our own response.

Disobedience

We love to make plans. Plans for vacations, weddings, and even retirement. However, when our plans include disobedience they are doomed to failure. We begin this series from the Book of Jonah looking at what deliberate disobedience looks like and why its a bad idea.

Call to Action

If we are to be able to make disciples of Jesus, we must first become disciples of Jesus. In this first lesson, we determine that as a disciple of Jesus, we are called to action.
