Giving

If Jesus was standing here right now and asked you, ‘What is it that you want the most?’ What would you say?” For many that’s a materialistic answer. A new car, money, etc…

Here’s another question for you… Is the Kingdom of God important to you? If so, what are you willing to give or give up to establishing His Kingdom? If He’s a giver, shouldn’t we also be? Talk given 12/7/10.

Experiencing God’s Love

Many of us have very little idea what it means to actually love properly and what love means!  I’m speaking of both men and women. We say things like “I Love my wife or girlfriend or boyfriend.” Almost in the same breath we turn round and say, “I love that car” or “I love this shirt.”  Suddenly the word “love” means less and less because we spread it around and cheapen it.  This also transfers onto our relationship with God!  Is this what God’s love is like?

What does it mean in 1 John 4:19 which says, “We love because He first Loved us?”  Can we trust that?  If it doesn’t look like the world’s love, what does it look like?

Please listen and grow with us into a love like no other!  Talk given 11/16/10.

Singleness is NOT the Enemy

Singleness is not a sin.  It’s not a curse, not a disease, and not a problem to be solved. Singleness is a season and a gift, but few see it that way. Many out there in Christendom have taken marriage and put it on a pedestal and very often is seen as one of the necessary goals of being a Christian.  Is it really?

It is said that if you want to serve God, stay single, and if you want to be more like God, get married. Maybe either one is good.

Let’s look to the Bible to clear this up for us.  Please read and learn with us as we examine Biblical Singleness.  Due to Technical difficulties we were unable to record this talk.  Please read the notes and Powerpoint to see what we talked about.  Talk given 10/26/10.

Biblical Righteousness – Serving the Poor and Oppressed

God’s has great concern for those who are marginalized, pushed aside, forgotten by people and/or suffering in some way.  It is mentioned form the beginning of the Bible to the end!  We so often read the Bible from a selfish perspective that we miss this major theme in the Sciptures.  In fact it is mentioned more than almost any other theme!

If it’s so important why do we overlook it?  Please learn with us why it’s so important to join in with God to love those around us who are in need!  Talk given 10/19/10.

Due to technical difficulties we were unable to record this talk.  Please review the notes and powerpoint below instead.

Prayer!

Prayer is talked about repetitively throughout the Bible.  It is a commandment from God to us.  It is about us knowing God and asking Him to work in us and through us and around us.  Prayer isn’t for God, it’s for us.

Join us as you listen to Kim, who brought the message this week, and learn together what it really means to “seek God’s face.”  Talk given 9/28/10.

Sharing Faith

It is a Biblical command that a follower of Jesus actually shares his/her faith in Him!  1 Peter 3:15 says “Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.”  We are all supposed to be doing it.  Period.  But, few actually do.  Shouldn’t it be like sharing something that is sweet with someone, Like Ice-cream?

Why?  What’s so hard about it?  Is it because we don’t know what it is we are trying to share, or is it a fear of rejection from people?  Also, let’s face it… There are a lot of people out there sharing their faith in very destructive ways, or at least not doing it with gentleness and respect!  Is our fear because we have seen all the wrong examples of how to share faith in Christ with people?

Listen as we talk about what we are really trying to share with people, and analyze various methods out there and see if we can come up with a good way of going about sharing our faith with people.  There might even be a testimony from one of our new sisters!  Talk given on 9/14/10.
