Humanity Too — 7

Pastor John continues his examination of “weakness”. We need to understand our weaknesses so we are not afraid of them, he says. So they don’t become an excuse for not doing what God is calling us to.

Also during the service, Mark Wilbur and Gert Hinman share testimonies about overcoming fears and challenges by keeping faith in God.

Pastor John continues his examination of the spiritual side of weakness and fear. Fear, he says, keeps us from doing so many things that God wants us to do. Weakness goes hand-in-hand with fear. We look at ourselves and we’re afraid of what we aren’t and what we don’t have and we overcompensate, trying to make ourselves better than we think we are. And what would Jesus have us do to counteract that? Surrender and let him be our strength. Message delivered 8/25/19.

Continuing his teaching series on the Sermon on the Mount, Pastor John cites Matthew 5:8: “You’re blessed when you get your inside world — your mind and heart — put right. Then you can see God in the outside world.” And then asks what that means. Is it something we can do ourselves? No, it is a consequence of surrendering to God, to let Him work in our hearts.

Pastor John opens a new teaching series on the Sermon on the Mount (related in Matthew 5) with the observation that the Sermon is so important because it is essentially Jesus’ first words of ministry. Basically, Jesus says, “This is what I want. This is who you should be. If you’re not this, you need to take a step back and take a look at who you are.” Shared 7/7/19
