Sometimes we can get halfway through a job and then just lose all motivation. We may face opposition or discouragement and want to quit. What can we do at those times? How can we press on to see the work completed? Perhaps Nehemiah can help…
Personally, I think it would be great if you could make an investment that was guaranteed never to lose value. No investment is ever that guaranteed. The market can rise and fall, and inflation makes cash lose its value. But there is a way to store up treasure in a totally safeguarded account. Are you interested?
Imagine what would have happened if Jesus was all ready to feed the five thousand, but there were no disciples to pass out the food. What would it have been like if the Holy Spirit came on the day of Pentecost to find no one in the room? God is calling for people who are willing to work in His kingdom. Is He calling you?
I don’t mean to burst your bubble, but God’s work in any church is NOT MEANT FOR THAT CHURCH ALONE! If God does something here, He intends for it to only begin here. If God begins to move here, it’s because He wants to begin a movement here. Are you ready? You won’t want to miss this motivational message.
Nowadays when you meet someone new and tell them you go to Church X, they say, ?Oh, I don’t know much about that church. How many people go there?? Or sometimes, you’ll hear them ask, ?What kind of programs does your church have?? Our world thinks that bigger is always better (SUV mentality). Well guess what! When it comes to church, bigger and better relate in ways you may not have thought.
Everyone’s looking for an easy way to do things, and I’m no different. I want straightforward, easy things to do that will bring me spiritual growth. In basketball, the easiest baskets come from what’s called taking the ?back-door.? All it means is that you do something your opponent doesn’t expect so that you get an easy basket. In this message we learn three unexpected things we can do for personal growth.
Do you believe in evolution? I do (in one respect). I am a firm believer that God wants His people to be constantly evolving, changing, growing, but sometimes I feel like something is preventing me from growing like that. Come back next week to find out how personal evolution can be a reality in your life.
Are you entirely satisfied with your life? Is everything exactly the way you want it to be? Of course not. I’ve never met anyone like that. We all want our lives to be ?tweaked? in some way for the better. That’s because God created us to grow and develop throughout our lives. In this message, Pastor Jeff describes what kind of DNA we need for personal growth.
It’s impossible to spend a month talking about community without thinking of the first community God ever established: the family. God made families to be the primary expression of community on earth. That’s why it’s so sad that today’s family is so fragmented. Listen to hear about God’s plan for families.
One of the most foundational truths in all of Scripture is that God exists in Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. However, it is also one of the most difficult to grasp. ?One God . . . Three Persons? it doesn’t seem to make sense. Listen to see if Jeff can make sense of this incredible mystery, but more importantly, discover how it can make a real difference in your life!
For many of us, faith is a private thing. We would prefer to worship God in the comfort of solitude rather than in the context of other people. However, that’s not how it’s supposed to be. If we want to know true worship, if we want to know true spirituality, we must be part of a community.
Worship may be hazardous to your health! Is it possible? Can worship actually be dangerous? It’s true. Sometimes worship can do more harm than good. Listen and learn about the dangerous pitfalls we must avoid when it comes to worship.
