God Wants ALL of ME:  How It LOOKS in ACTION (Romans 12:9-21)

After God describes His will for us in Romans 12:1-8, wanting our bodiesas living sacrifices, renewing our minds to replace worldly thinking, andgifting us to serve one another, He uses the rest of the chapter to paint apicture to show us how this looks in action. God describes our attitudes, actions, and relationships as they look when we are yielding our bodies, our minds, and our time to Him. This is the last of a four-part series on Romans 12.

How Do I Stay Calm in Life’s Storms? (Philippians 4:4)

Wednesday, September 19th, 2018

“Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say, Rejoice!” Paul commands us, twice, to REJOICE. How can this be? We see in this study that we can rejoice, in any circumstance, by understanding the truth about God, identifying ineffective “anchors” to hold onto, and by focusing on eternal unmovables – anchors that hold. Life’s storms require God’s anchors.

LESSONS FROM A PENITENT SON AND A COMPASSIONATE FATHER (Luke 15:17-24)

Sin is stupid when we see it realistically. The wasteful and foolish younger son had spent everything in a far land, and finds himself desolate and desperate, feeding pigs and eating their food. In these circumstances, this son comes to his senses. He realizes how foolish his choices were, how bad his sin was, and how obvious the results of sin were. The things he rejected – his father and the structure and responsibility of family – now seemed incredibly favorable and acceptable. Even the lowest hired hand of his father had plenty to eat. The desolate son repents of his sin and makes plans to return to his father and confess his sinfulness, and to request to be a hired hand. He acts on his decision and heads home. Before he reaches his home, he is seen by his father, who responds with the most amazing actions. Jesus emphasizes God’s view of a repentant sinner and the joy which God embraces him.

How Do I Stay Calm in Life’s Storms? (Phil 4:4)

What do you hold on to in life? What do you focus upon and give yourself to?

Rejoicing in the Lord always makes all the difference! We share a handful of ineffective anchors, and we give you four eternal “unmoveables” – things that we are to focus upon as we live for God.
