Humanity Too — 9

Posted on

Too often, Pastor John says, contemporary Christianity is inclined to view God as some kind of stern school master whose main concern is that we do our homework and follow a bunch of rules. However, the point of The Law, delivered to Moses, is to reveal our sin and to reveal out complete inability to overcome our sin on our own. Message delivered 9/29/19.

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. Message shared 8/4/19.
