This week we continued our Hope is Coming series by talking about peace. Defined, peace is a tranquil place of rest a part from circumstances. We talked about the life of Mary, and looked at how God prepared her for the chaos that was to come so she could be at ease. Like Mary, we can walk in peace because Jesus is present.
This week we kicked off our Hope is Coming series. Hope is the confident expectation of good. To have hope we have to know there is somewhere to take our sins, and that is found in Jesus. We’re going to need hope when we don’t expect it. We store up hope every day when we worship,read the Bible, pray and listen to the voice of God.
This week Jimmy wrapped up our How Then Shall We Live? series with a message on the last commandment, “You shall not covet.” Coveting is defined as having a strong lust or desire for something or someone that isn’t yours. Coveting can be broken down into three areas: people, possessions and positions. When we put Jesus at the center of all three areas, everything else will fall into place.
This week Jimmy continued our How Then Shall We Live? series with a message on the seventh commandment, “You shall not commit adultery.” Sexual immorality is hurting us individually and as a nation. We were made to be free, and with Jesus we have the power to be set free from all sexual immorality.
This week Jimmy sat down with some special guests who shared about their faith, family and how God is fulfilling His purposes in their lives.
This week Jimmy shared a message on the fifth commandment, which tells us to honor our mother and father. Biblically, honor means to put value on someone even when they don’t deserve it. This commandment is the first one that has a promise attached to it. When we honor our parents, we will be blessed in the process.
This week Jimmy continued our series with a message on the fourth commandment, which tells us to keep the Sabbath holy. As New Testament believers the Sabbath isn’t really a specific day, but the rest we find in the person of Jesus. It is creating a space everyday to meet with God in order to realign ourselves with Him and others. We need to create non-negotiable space to rest because the world isn’t just going to let us pause.
This week Jimmy continued our How Then Shall We Live? series with a message on honoring the Lord’s name. Names are not just random things, they have meaning and power. The name of the Lord is significant and He is worthy to be praised and exalted. When we honor the Lord’s name, we become sensitized to know what is and isn’t God.
This week, Jimmy continued our How Then Shall We Live series with a message on the first two commandments: 1. Thou shall be no other gods before Me and 2. You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. (Exodus 20: 3-4) Idols are anything that keep us from loving God wholly. God doesn’t give us rules to keep us from things – He gives us rules so we will have the fullness of life.
