Each of us has a natural inclination toward being or doing.If you’re more of a being person, maybe you like sitting, savoring, and seeking – you’re content just being.You might lean more toward delegation, determination, and duty – you’re all about accomplishing. You’re a doer.While both of these matter in their appropriate setting, none of the doing is worth doing if it’s not growing out of the being.In Nehemiah chapter 2, we will take a candid assessment of where we are and make a plan for where we are going.

In a world of quitters, God’s people are determined. And their determination reveals itself in many aspects of a believer’s life – especially in how they care. There are things yet undone that God wants accomplished in the world you live in. Do you care? There is no ministry that is not deeply connected to caring for people.

As Christians, our greatest motivation is “The Day.” The Day will cause all other days to pale in comparison – and there are a few things you should know about The Day before it arrives. Every day – we pitch our tents one day’s march closer to eternity. How will you fair?

5 Reasons To Forgive
August 16, 2020 | Featured | Forgiveness, God's forgiveness, Healing, Hurt, Reconciliation, Series, Sermons, Vertical Living, Verticality

WATCH

God accepts no love from human hearts that are gripped by hate.
In Vertical Living, we have come to discover from God’s word that mercy halts offense by withholding and grace limits offense by covering. In this sermon, we will see how forgiveness ends offense by releasing. While there are many rationalizations for our unforgiveness – Scripture offers a roadmap for the vehicle of forgiveness which leads to freedom from self incarceration and a lifetime of bitterness.

Love2Live2Love – most people want that in concept. But in reality, most of us find ourselves not loving as God would have us. We want to…but we don’t. In today’s sermon, we will be equipped with scriptural tools to overcome the obstacles of grace. Grace is continuing to love even when offended.

WATCH

Christ followers are not just responsible for what they do – but also for the impression they give. This week will be a paradigm shift for each of us as we transition from an easy and average perspective of judgment to one of mercy. Mercy is diffi cult and must be learned – because where it is absent, God is blasphemed, Satan will gain a foothold and Christianity becomes a joke.

WATCH

Offense is an obstacle to love. And the cost of unresolved offense is great. For this cause, God takes it very seriously. No matter your personality, the prescription for resolution is universal. God is the resource and reason for loving others. Matthew 5:21-47

WATCH

What is your love story as it pertains to love for God? Jesus said, the sincerity of your love for God is on display in the record of your actions toward the person in your life you find hardest to love. As followers of Christ we do this willingly and gladly. And while love is not the only thing that matters – it is the method to accomplish everything that does.

Loving Jesus means keeping his commandments – and most of them are about loving our neighbors. Loving others is loving Jesus because He commands it – and it leads to a deeper experience with Him.

Vertical Living | Love Gone Wrong: [04]
June 28, 2020 | Featured | Series, Sermons, Vertical Living, Verticality

WATCH

You cannot live – really live – until you love God. Love to live! And you cannot really love God unless that shows up in your loving of one another. God has given each of us the capacity to love. Vertical love is God before me. Horizontal love is you before me. But as with anything, the enemy has something else in mind.

Satan can’t create anything – he just takes the beautiful things that God has created – twists them and attempts to use them to destroy us. One such twisting is taking a love for God & others and converting it to “legalism.” Maybe you have been the recipient of a pointed finger or found yourself with the “three pointed back at you.”

In Vertical Living, God will take you to the mat with the full weight of all that He is. Watch and learn how to LOVE2LIVE2LOVE.
