Sermon July 23, 2017: Love Is A Verb

Today Pastor Krystal Wigginton brought us the message. Her message is titled “Love Is A Verb” and her scripture reference is Mark 12:28-30. Listen and follow along:

One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?”
“The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’
(Mark 12:28-30)

Four Steps on How to Show Love for God

  1. By your compassion for God’s creation
    “All your heart” refers to thoughts and emotions.
  2. In your principles of right and wrong
    “All your soul” refers to your morals
  3. In your thoughts of goodness
    “All your mind” makes you aware of the world and your experiences.
  4. In your discipline
    “All your strength” is your capacity to withstand great force or pressure.

Sermon July 16, 2017: God Cares About…

Today Pastor Dan’s message is titled “God Cares About…“. Listen and follow along:

  1. WHO BEFORE DO.
    God’s will is for you to be holy… (1 Thessalonians 4:3, NLT)

    • Heart before lists…
    • Attitude before behavior…
    • It’s much more likely for behavior to follow heart than heart to be shaped by behavior.
  2. WHY BEFORE WHAT.
    You may think everything you do is right, but the Lord judges your motives. (Proverbs 16:2, GNT)

    • Motives are more important than results…
    • Approach is more important than success…
      Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ. (Galatians 1:10)

      And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. (Colossians 3:17)
  3. If you’re becoming the right WHO, God will help you choose the right DO.
  4. If you’re driven by the right WHY, God will lead you to the right WHAT.

In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

God can testify how I long for all of you with the affection of Christ Jesus. And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God.

Today Pastor Dan’s message is titled “Best Summer Ever! With All Your Heart” and his scripture reference is Colossians 3:23-24. Listen and follow along:

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. (Colossians 3:23-24)

Jesus really has to be Lord of your life.

“You do you” as God designed you.

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. (1 Peter 4:10)

You’ll have to drum up some enthusiasm and energy.

  • From others…
  • God has prepared you for this in advance – believe it, practice it, live it.
    For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. (Ephesians 2:10)
  • Enthusiasm is contagious and it’s a wonderful disease.


Know there’s an inheritance

Eternal blessing…

However, as it is written: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived” — the things God has prepared for those who love him— (1 Corinthians 2:10)

Earthly blessing…

So what do I do?

Sermon June 11, 2017: More Bad Advice – How To Be Dissatisfied

Today Pastor Dan’s message is titled “More Bad Advice – How To Be Dissatisfied” and his scripture reference is Luke 12:16-21. Listen and follow along:

And he told them this parable: “The ground of a certain rich man yielded an abundant harvest. He thought to himself, ‘What shall I do? I have no place to store my crops.’ “Then he said, ‘This is what I’ll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store my surplus grain. And I’ll say to myself, “You have plenty of grain laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.” “But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you… “This is how it will be with whoever stores up things for themselves but is not rich toward God.” (Luke 12:16-21)

How To Be Dissatisfied

  1. Work hard on being ungrateful.
  2. Compare what you have to people who have more.
  3. Pursue temporary possessions over eternal treasures.
  4. Develop an attitude of entitlement.


Ungratefulness
Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)

Comparison
We do not dare to classify or compare ourselves with some who commend themselves. When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are not wise. (2 Corinthians 10:12)

Pursuits
…”Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.” (Luke 12:15)

Being Entitled
But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that (1 Timothy 6:6-8)

Sermon June 4, 2017: The Power

Today Pastor Dan’s message is titled “The Power” and his scripture reference is Acts 1:4-5,8. Listen and follow along:

On one occasion, while (Jesus) was eating with them, he gave them this command: “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about. For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit…”But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:4-5, 8)

dunamis (doo’-nam-is); a force; a miraculous power, the explosive power of God.

HOLY SPIRIT GIVES YOU THE POWER…

  1. TO SHARE CHRIST BOLDLY.
    My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that your faith might not rest on men’s wisdom, but on God’s power. (1 Corinthians 2:4-5)
  2. WHEN YOU ARE WEAK.
    In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. (Romans 8:26)
    “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me… For when I am weak, then I am strong. (2 Corinthians 12:9-10)
  3. TO HAVE HOPE IN A HOPELESS WORLD.
    May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. (Romans 15:13)
  4. TO EXPERIENCE ALL THE FULLNESS OF GOD.
    I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge — that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. (Ephesians 3:16-19)

Sermon May 28, 2017: Free Servants

Today Pastor Dan’s message is titled “Free Servants” and his scripture reference is 1 Peter 2. Listen and follow along:

But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light. “Once you had no identity as a people; now you are God’s people. Once you received no mercy; now you have received God’s mercy.” (1 Peter 2:9-10, NLT)

Dear friends, I warn you as “temporary residents and foreigners” to keep away from worldly desires that wage war against your very souls. Be careful to live properly among your unbelieving neighbors. Then even if they accuse you of doing wrong, they will see your honorable behavior, and they will give honor to God when he judges the world. (1 Peter 2:11-12, NLT)

For the Lord’s sake, submit to all human authority—whether the king as head of state, or the officials he has appointed. For the king has sent them to punish those who do wrong and to honor those who do right. It is God’s will that your honorable lives should silence those ignorant people who make foolish accusations against you. (1 Peter 2:13-15, NLT)

For you are free, yet you are God’s slaves, so don’t use your freedom as an excuse to do evil. Respect everyone, and love the family of believers. Fear God, and respect the king. (1 Peter 2:16-17, NLT)
