If you continue to live your life the way you do, what regrets will you when when it is over? In many cases, regrets are an indication of what God has called you to do but you haven’t fulfilled or pursued. The future doesn’t have to look like the past, but it will unless you fight, empowered by the Holy Spirit, to change. Message delivered 5/30/2010.
Many Christians take great comfort in the promise of Romans 8:28, that God works for good in all things for those who love him and he has called. But what “good”? Immediate good, like cupcakes and candy or sipping lemonade on the beach? No, God doesn’t work something out so we can end up in the same mess again and again! He wants to work it out for the rest of our lives so we will become more like him! Message delivered 5/23/2010.
Our greatest battle is not the condemnation we place on others … although that is big … but it is the condemnation we place on ourselves. How much time do you spend thinking “did you do this right?” and “did you do it wrong?” and “are you this?” and “are you that?”, placing it on yourself and living in a world of self-condemnation. But freedom has come, because there is NOW no condemnation. Message delivered 5/16/2010.
Romans chapter 7 explores the reality of being “dead to sin”. The key to living a victorious resurrected life is in understanding that sin has lost its power over us NOT because it’s dead to us, but because we are the ones who have died. Messaged delivered 5/9/2010.
A Woman of Noble Character, who can find? This Mother’s Day, we honored the wives, mothers and women of our church. We were able to take a sneak peek into the lives of Connie Schwein and Mary Garrett as they were interviewed about their personal experiences with motherhood. Pastor Amy then shared the recipe of how to become a “Woman of Noble Character” by looking at a modern day version of Proverbs 31. Message delivered 5/9/2010.
