Give up, give in, give out

Kevin Harvey, N3C elder and regional director of South Jersey Fellowship of Christian Athletes, delivered the message.  His topic: Give In, Give Out, Give Up.  Give up is learning what it means to surrender our will to God on a daily basis (Galatians 2:20). Give in is giving into the calling God has placed over your life (2 Peter 1:3, Ephesians 4:1-3). Give out is the priilege of serving the Lord, being a blessing to others, and allowing His life to flow through us. Message delivered 11/29/15.

These are the songs we sang in worship.

Christ’s heart: Our campground or castle?

In her message the week before, Amy Minnich asked what we do after asking Jesus into our hearts. Do we treat him as a (possibly unwelcome) guest, or truly make him at home in every room. This week, she asks us how we view our place in Christ’s heart. Are we just camping out, where are on our own and unprotected? Or are we in the king’s castle, with all needs provided, complete protection, and abundant room to grow? Message delivered 9/20/15.

Our heart: Christ’s house or home?

Amy Minnich challenges the Christians at N3C with the question:  What have you done with Jesus once you’ve asked him into your heart? Is he sitting out in the hallway as a guest? Or have you let him make himself at home, with full access to every room and everything that goes on? Her key scripture is Ephesians 3: 14-20, with the emphasis on verse 17 — “Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. (NLT)”  Message deliverd 9/13/15.

Her message concluded with special music by Abbie and Dave Messenger: the Stephany Gretzinger song “Out of Hiding”.

Additionally, Amy prepared a five-part devotional study to help absorb and apply what she spoke about. Here’s the study as a PDF:

Our Hearts Devotional

(This devotional is revised to correct a typo … the Day 2 reading now directs you to 2 Cor. 1:3-4 instead of 2 Cor. 3:3-4.)

Run, run and keep running!

Starting with a video clip from the movie “Forest Gump” in which the young boy in braces learns to run and escapes his tormentors, Lisa Waldman shares about the scriptural aspects of running a race. Life is a marathon, she says, and not a sprint. Sometimes the running is easy, but often it is terribly difficult. You need to be encouraged, you need to be intentional, and you need to be focused on Jesus, who will empower you to run the race before you. Message delivered 10/13/13.
