"Real Life" Theology- Forgiveness

What does God expect of us when we have suffered offences? Are we to hold a grudge, plan our revenge, or forgive?  What does forgiveness look like in our lives? From the parable Jesus told in Matthew 18 about forgiveness, we find principles for how and why to forgive.

Worship

Starting a new sermon series on how our theology affects "real life," we begin with the subject of worship.  What you do is based on what you believe. Does what you believe about God affect the way you celebrate Him in praise, or change the way you live?  This sermon will challenge you to make worship a part of every decision.

Lessons from Haggai

The circumstances in Jerusalem in 520 BC were tough, like today. The people were distracted by all the hardship . . . like today. And they were less than faithful, like too many in the current climate.  BUt God called them to a new level of obedience, and promised a greater level of blessing for those who would consider their ways and repent.

Actors in a Supporting Role

In Colossians 4:7-14 Paul writes about a cast of character who play a supporting role in the work of the ministry. He commends many for their faithful service, but a further look reveals that not each one remained faithful.  May God use this message to encourage us to give our best to the Lead Actor, in the drama of redemption, our Savior, Jesus Christ.

Church Clean-Up Day

Paul addressed the need for holy living in the congregation in Colossians 3:5-11.  He said there is behavior that needs to be mortified    . . . literally- terminated because of death . . . that has no place in the believer.  Listen to hear the list of what Paul says needs to be "put to death" and "put off."  Then, do an inventory in your behavior. Need a clean-up day?

Religion vs. Relationship

In Colossians 2:16-3:4, Paul highlights the difference between having to live under the Law compared to living in relationship with the Lord. Legalism, spiritism, egotism, asceticism don't measure up. We are in relationship to God when we walk in fellowship based on His saving and sustaining grace

Included in Christ

How can we do this? God provides all the power necessary!
