The Ring Box: Where do you invest

The main lesson that must be developed in this passage concerns eternal life--how to obtain it. It is helpful to note first what does not obtain it--good works done without surrendering the will to the Lord. There is a place for good works of course--they will be the evidence of a living faith in the Lord. But salvation is by the grace of God; and without faith it is impossible to please God.

Big Box

My dear friend, is there anything, any hindrance, that you are unwilling to give up to follow Jesus? You may not be wealthy, but if there is something you possess, or that possesses you, laying it down is a vital part of following the Master. He must have your all. And he calls gently to you: "Come, follow me."

Monster's Inc

Many believers have the attitude that just because they are saved and in the family of God, that now God is supposed to give them everything they ever dreamed of without any effort, or work or discipline on their part.  The fact is, it costs what it costs and it never goes on sale.

Why You Do What You Do Matters

 

The compelling power, the love of Christ, was an obsession with Paul. In his ministry, service, in his walk and in everything, he was governed by this. The love of Christ manifested on the Cross of Calvary was a compelling force in his Christian service. Because of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ Paul had become a new creature, a new creation. “Old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”

Cambodia Report

Listen to a team that went out to Cambodia and be challenged as well as encouraged in your faith to find your own place to serve.  God has called us all to great things and nothing will bring the kind of joy to our lives as living within His will.

What You Do Matters

 

What you do matters because it reflects more than you.  Part of our identity is acting out what we believe.  Our actions can have tremendous effects on people my encouragement to you this morning is to evaluate your life and see if what you do matches up with what you believe.  Do your actions match who you are in Christ, or has the identity theft ruled this area of your life too?

Who You Are Matters

This is the first of three messages on regaining who we are as we stand before the throne of God. In this message we focus on "Who we are matters” because we so often feel as though we don’t.

Taming the Tongue

The power of speech is one of the greatest powers God has given us. With the tongue, we can praise God, teach God’s Word and lead lost sinners to Jesus Christ. But with that same tongue we can tell lies that can ruin a reputation or break someone’s heart. The ability to articulate truth is one of the most powerful ways we influence others; and yet so often we take this ability for granted.

Fear of Failure

Everyone is afraid of failing in some capacity.  Moses was too, join us as we look at the excuses Moses came up with not to go forward to fulfill what he was called to do and how God answered him.

I Am Messy!

“Churches are not Victorian parlors where everything is always picked up and ready for guests. They are messy family rooms… Things are out of order, to be sure, but that is what happens to churches that are lived in. They are not show rooms. They are living rooms, and if the persons living in them are sinners, there are going to be clothes scattered about, handprints on the woodwork and mud on the carpets” (Eugene Peterson, “Reversed Thunder”, page 54).

The Three Crosses

We want to notice this morning the three crosses that were represented at the crucifixion of Christ.  In John 19:18, we are told - "Here they crucified him, and with him two others—one on each side and Jesus in the middle."
The Cross of Rejection, The Cross of Reception and The Cross of Redemption.

Colossians 4

The text (Colossians 4:2–6) falls naturally into two parts: verses 2–4 are the first part, and verse 5 and 6 are the second part. The first part has to do with our indirect involvement in evangelism through prayer for God's specially called spokesmen. The second part has to do with our direct involvement in evangelism through wise conduct and seasoned speech.

Colossians 2

No matter where we are: a child in the faith, a teenager or an adult, God calls us to spiritual maturity. He wants us to grow by deepening our faith. Spiritual growth is one of God’s greatest desires for us. In fact, spiritual growth is essential to the life of a Christian, just as physical growth is essential to the life of a child. If you are not growing then you’re dying. It’s so important that God commands us to mature spiritually.

Colossians 1

There’s something that intrigues us about before and after images. Whether it’s a remarkable account of weight loss or the “amazing” re-growth of hair on a bald head, such displays capture our attention and don’t easily let go. But what if the before picture was so ugly that it could hardly be viewed, and the after picture was so beautiful that it seemed impossible to believe that the same person is being shown.

Sycamore Tree

There are so many things that happen in life that we don't always know to look for Christ in them.  Reese reminds us of the Sycamore tree in the story of Zacchaeus, where he needed to climb the tree that was provided in order to see Jesus.  What are the sycamore trees in our lives that are intended for us to see Jesus more clearly?

MySpace: Beyond My Screen

I believe that one of the greatest needs in the church is an honest look at the invisible you.  How are you doing…REALLY?  When was the last time you got really honest with yourself and someone else?  Sometimes the hardest thing I do is confronting myself, dealing with my sinful heart.  It can be painful to take an inside look at my heart but if I want to be pleasing to God I must do it.  God is not just interested in how I look on the outside.  God is interested in what I feel and think on the inside.  Listen to Jesus, “Woe to you, teachers o

Beyond Virtual Community

I find myself going back to restaurants where I know the wait staff, because they recognize me; I recognize them. There's a certain sense of Hey, I'm part of a community...however tenuous. I find myself drawn to go back to those places. And it's even more important when we talk about the church.
