“Children / Fathers / Young Adults”

The Word of God and His commandment of Love is for young and old and everything in between. But it plays out slightly differently within our different stages of life. Same message. Increasing understanding.

“Whoever loves his brother abides in the light, and in him there is no cause for stumbling.”

1 John 2:10

SCRIPTURE USED:

  • 1 John 2:7-14

“Walking in Light”

We apologize for our technical issues today, including low sound. We are addressing it. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

If we are to “walk in the Light,” it means that we can’t also walk in the darkness of our sins. We either follow God’s way or ours. His is Light. Ours, darkness. The fact is, we will walk in our ways and, when we do, we need to humbly confess and let Jesus advocate on our behalf to God – and He always wins! Jesus wins! Light wins! So we win!

“Whoever keeps [God’s] word, in him truly the love of God is perfected.”

1 John 2:5

SCRIPTURE USED:

  • 1 John 1:5—2:6

“JESUS: The Word of Life”

It wasn’t just the those who lived at the time of Jesus who were witnesses of Him; we are too! And as such, we are to give witness about Him! This doesn’t just bring others true Life, but also brings us complete joy!

“We are writing these things so that your joy may be complete.”

1 John 1:4

SCRIPTURE USED:

  • 1 John 1:1-4

“A Life of Denial”

If our lives were examined, who or what should show up as our priority? Our lives, as Christians, aren’t about us. They are about Jesus and being winsome to others for Him. We should be willing to give up all – our very self – for Him and others; just as Jesus did for us. Denial is a fundamental characteristic of a Christian. Let’s show that. Let’s live that.

“If anyone would come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.” ~Jesus

Matthew 16:24

SCRIPTURE USED:

  • Matthew 16:21-26

“Change Your Mind”

What changes a person – and what does it mean to be changed? More precisely, what does it mean and how does it manifest itself in the life of a Christian? God has something to says about that.

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind.

Romans 12:2a (ESV)

SCRIPTURE USED:

  • Romans 11:33—12:3

“Simple Salvation”

What does God see in us? Why would He give any attention to the likes of us, who constantly rebel and disobey? His answer: because He loves us and desires to be with us for eternity! He considers us a treasure! May we consider Him ours!

Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.

Romans 10:13 (ESV)

SCRIPTURES USED:

  • Romans 10:5-17

“’X’ Marks the Spot”

What does God see in us? Why would He give any attention to the likes of us, who constantly rebel and disobey? His answer: because He loves us and desires to be with us for eternity! He considers us a treasure! May we consider Him ours!

You are a people holy to the LORD your God.

Deuteronomy 7:6 (ESV)

SCRIPTURES USED:

  • Matthew 13:44-46;
  • Deuteronomy 7:6-9

“Roundup”

There will be struggles and things in this world hurt, and challenge us. That’s a certainty. The Devil sows weeds to choke us. In fact, all of Creation is suffering due to sin. But as certain as sin and Satan are, their destruction is assured – as is our eternal life!

Hold on tight! He’s got you!

The Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.

Romans 8:26b (ESV)

SCRIPTURES USED:

  • Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43
