Seek

This morning, we’re beginning a new message series entitled, “Seek.”  Over and over and over and over again, we’re called in God’s word to seek Him.  We know that if God calls us to do something, it’s not something that we’re going to do naturally on our own. What does it look like to seek after God, though?  Is it to read a devotional, pray before meals, listen to Christian music most of the time, go to church Sundays?  Is…

Palm Sunday

This morning, we celebrate Palm Sunday also known as Passion Sunday!  Although we haven’t been meeting for our community services this year, most churches have been moving through the season of Lent.  Lent is a period of 40 days set apart for prayer, repentance, and sacrifice to remember and to honor the sacrifice of Jesus beginning with Ash Wednesday. Today marks the beginning of the last week in the earthly life of Jesus where we really see His passion for…

Identity Crisis: God’s People

We’ve been learning for some time now all about who we are in Christ.  We are looking at several identity crises that exist surrounding who we truly are when everything else is stripped away; our true identity. In Christ, we become so many new things!  Born again, children of God, free indeed, temples filled with the Holy Spirit, overcomers, equipped with spiritual gifts, and unconditionally loved.  Today, we are closing up the series with this general, but incredibly awesome reality. …

Identity Crisis: Freedom

This morning, we continue our “Identity Crisis” message series where we are faced with that question, “When everything else fails, at your core, who are you?”  We’ve been reminded how we were created on purpose and for a purpose.   We are loved, children of God, temples, gifted, and overcomers.  We overcome by the blood of the lamb and the word of our testimony! We’re beginning today by seeing the importance of testimony and the need to validate it.  After all,…

Identity Crisis: Overcomer

This morning, we continue our “Identity Crisis” message series where we are faced with that question, “When everything else fails, at your core, who are you?”  We’ve been reminded how we were created on purpose and for a purpose. We learned of our need to be born again and how, at that  moment, we become children of God.  We were also reminded of the worship war raging and how jealous the enemy must be of us.  After all, God chose…

Identity Crisis: Gifted

This morning, we continue our “Identity Crisis” message series where we are faced with that question, “When everything else fails, at your core, who are you?”  We’ve been reminded how we were created on purpose and for a purpose. We learned of our need to be born again and how, at that  moment, we become children of God.  We were also reminded of the worship war raging and how jealous the enemy must be of us.  After all, God chose…

Identity Crisis: Loved

This morning, we continue our “Identity Crisis” message series where we are faced with that question, “When everything else fails, at your core, who are you?”  We’ve been reminded how we were created on purpose and for a purpose. We learned of our need to be born again and how, at that  moment, we become children of God.  We were also reminded of the worship war raging and how jealous the enemy must be of us.  After all, God chose…

Identity Crisis: Temple

This morning, we continue our “Identity Crisis” message series where we are faced with that question, “When everything else fails, at your core, who are you?”  Last week, we were reminded how we were created on purpose and for a purpose.  Our nation, and the church alike, is suffering from identity crises in many different ways. We learned that there is a huge difference between who we are born to be and who we were created to be.  We are…

Identity Crisis

This morning, we’re beginning a new message series entitled, “Identity Crisis.”  Through it, we’re going to understand better not only who we are now, but also who we are in Christ. Our culture is suffering from a tremendous identity crisis.  We don’t truly know who we are.  There is such disagreement over what it means to be American.  There is even disagreement on who is considered to be a citizen of the USA.  The roles of a husband, wife, mother,…

All In: Follow Me

This morning, we’re finishing our message series, “All In.”  So far, we were challenged to be all in for Jesus because Jesus is all in for us.  We were reminded to apply that small, but huge word: commit.  As we commit to being all in for Jesus this year, we may need to simplify our lives.  We were reminded that another possible way to be all in for Jesus this year is to simply DO IT AGAIN and learn to…
