What a shame… when you’re too busy working like Martha, you won’t rest at Jesus’ feet like Mary. Following God’s commandments is essential to a thriving life – and marriage. This week, Pastor James leads us through the command to rest, and the first command with a promise.
If you don’t know them by heart, no need to guess! Just open your Bible to Exodus 20, as we dig into God’s Word.
Know The Pattern a sermon from Acts 13-14.
In 1 Kings 12 we look at the story of King Rehoboam. He was given both foolish and wise counsel and he is remembered for how he responded this advice. We must be intentional about seeking good and godly advice that will lead us to glorifying God. When we hear godly advice, we must take heed.
We dive into 2 Kings 21-23 and look at the lives of a few kings. Some of these kings rebelled against God and compromised, but one chose to glorify God. We learn about these King’s relationship with God and His Word and we’re reminded of a few valuable lessons.
The people who are closest to the Lord have the greatest sense of their own sinfulness and need for Jesus Christ. Spending time in God’s Word is the best thing a Christian can do to fight against letting compromise creep into their life.
Diversity is both a gift and enemy to unity. In it, we find a tug-of-war competition between quantity of disciples and quality of discipleship. In today’s “pre-game speech” from Ephesians 4, Pastor James unpacks the purpose of diversity, discipleship, and maturity. No quantity of people can be a substitute for quality of disciples.
Live from the Holy Land, Pastor James leads us through Nehemiah chapter 3. Have you ever stopped to consider exactly who contributed to the rebuilding project? The list is important because every servant of God matters to God. And if you find yourself facing a difficult task, with God’s help you will find a way forward. Big things can happen when we work together.
