There's a drastic difference between saying someone should be thankful "for" suffering (which we are not doing) versus seeing how we can be thankful "during" suffering. At some point in life we all suffer, to varying degrees. But God will still empower us to experience thankfulness even during the intense challenges life can throw our way.
There are many things that have been placed into our lives, yet sometimes they are lying dormant. Just like a fire, stirring the embers can bring a new blaze to these things. Be inspired to stir up the gift of grace in your life today.
Our world sometimes gets to spinning so fast that we simply run from one thing to the next, never really seeing that God is at work in our lives. Today's message reminds us to slow down and see that God truly is working in us...we just need to look to see it.
When was the last time you were truly personally challenged by God and His Word? We're talking about a REAL challenge. A challenge to change. To become something more. To experience exponential growth. This message will ask you to think on this and open yourself up to being challenged by God.
Lots of folks are searching for a service project to be involved with. But the messae today will show us that the most obvious service project we are to be involved with is "each other".
Taking a 25 lb weight in a backpack during a footrace would be foolish! But this is a real illustration of what happens to us in our spiritual race sometimes. Join us today as we dig into understanding how to run the race unencumbered and with patience.
Many of us either tend to live defined by our past, or else don't want anyone to even know about it. But the reality is that our past gives people the proper perspective to ask about the "what" that caused the change to the person we are today. Join us as we learn how to avoid having a "mistaken identity".
Do you have joy? What is the real origin of joy for a Christ-follower? Today we dive into a passage in Romans in order to understand "how joyful" we should be after believing on Jesus Christ.
Have you ever seen someone driving and texting? What tended to happen? Usually they swerve, maybe run off the road, but generally are dangerous while driving because they aren't focused on the right thing. Our lives can be that way unless we are focused on the correct objects and goals. In this message today we will see where we SHOULD be focused.
Are you content? So many times we define contentment by the things that we have or the things we get to do. But where should the Christ-follower find their source of contentment? Join us as we examine a biblical contentment that is Christ-centered, not Americanized or focused on possessions.
