I Say “Yes, Lord!” Yes to the Will of Christ!

Have you ever thought about God’s Will? In other words have you ever pondered what God wants? To some people this is an easy question to answer but to others it is not so simple. Israel thought they had it all figured out. They reasoned that God was content with their ceremonial actions that they performed in the temple and their festivals that they celebrated at their appointed times. They basically reasoned that as long as they did the “religious stuff” God was appeased. Can you imagine their shock when God voiced His disappointment? God doesn’t want our mindless, heartless actions; especially if they contrast with our lives that we may live outside of the eyeshot or earshot of the church. Our obedience should not be a meaningless attempt to appease Him but rather our true and sincere reaction to ALL that He is. This is the obedience that God longs for; this is true obedience.




I Say “Yes, Lord!” Yes, to the Blessings of Christ

God gives us HIs blessings - It's all about blessing and being blessed. OBJECTIVE: We should realize we are truly rich so we can bless God.




I Say “Yes, Lord!” Yes to the Body of Christ

Imagine what might happen to the world and to our community if the church of Jesus Christ, His Bride, were to actually say, YES to Him as LORD? In this message Pastor Pete begins an eight week series on stewardship: by definition – taking care of someone else’s property as if it were your own. Pastor Pete speaks to the subject of giving God ourselves. The Body of Christ requires every member of the Body doing its part and share. A theological, practical overview is given over II Corinthians 1:12-24 and I Corinthians 12:1-31. We want to say YES to God in loving God and loving others; and serving God and serving others. The subject of spiritual gifts is presented in order to equip the body to do the work of the ministry.

Part Five: The Amazing Power of True Forgiveness – What True and Authentic Forgiveness Looks Like: Confirmation and Compassion

September 25, 2011 Part Five: What True and Authentic Forgiveness Looks Like: Confirmation and Compassion - Genesis 44:1-34 How does one confirm a person’s authenticity when they have wronged us without betraying the Scriptural admonition to keep no record of wrongs? In this time together Scripture will unwrap and release the tension between those two seemingly opposing truths. Authentic forgiving and forgiveness starts with confrontation and moves towards confession. From confession we confirm truth and show compassion to the offender being reminded of our own offense before God.




Contend for the Faith

Did you know the world has Christianity on trial so to speak? As Christians we are called to give a defense (apologetics) of Christianity without being offensive to the world - this is effective apologetics. Scripture states in Jude 3, “I found it necessary to write and exhort you to contend for the faith that was delivered to the saints once for all.” As John MacArthur states, There are the “two sides of apologetics: Defending the faith against attack, and presenting truth claims of Christianity to unbelievers.” Paul gave two statements to address these aspects of apologetics: Philippians 1:16, “I am appointed for the defense of the gospel,” and 1 Corinthians 9:16, “And woe to me if I do not preach the gospel.” Are you able to articulate why you believe what you believe? Listen as Pastor Scott shares observations from Stephen’s defense of Christianity in Acts 7.




Part Four: What True and Authentic Forgiveness Looks Like: Confrontation and Confession. Genesis 44:1-18

Remember where you were on 9/11? From the perspective of the offenders and the life illustration of Joseph the offended we learn how to confront our sin, confess our sin and concede our own need for forgiveness from God and from others we have wronged. This lesson is a practical primer on working through the emotions of forgiving and being forgiven and the decisions we make by faith to help us on our spiritual journey towards forgiveness and reconciliation.




Part Three: The Amazing Power of True Forgiveness: A Severe Famine In Canaan (Rejoicing in the Grace and Mercy of the Ruler at the Head of the table) Genesis 43:1-34

Running on empty? God has given us His Holy Spirit so we can live lives that are full and satisfied. He created us for Himself. When we get hungry enough things will change in our lives. Delaying the consequences will not delay the inevitable work God wants to do in our lives. Dwelling on the past only cripples us in the present. We must learn, as Joseph and his eleven brothers as well as Jacob / Israel, confronted their fears, by faith, not running away from what is hard just because it is hard. As we bow in humility and true repentance, before God and others we have wronged, we can watch in shock and awe God’s amazing work of reconciliation played out in our lives.

Gleanings from Paul A Letter of Reconciliation

Paul's letter of Philemon has much to say about forgiveness and reconciliation. Listen as Pastor Aaron takes a close look at what it means to reconcile.




Part Two: The Amazing Power of True Forgiveness: A Famine in Canaan (Learning to Fear God in the Journey to Forgiveness) Genesis 42:1-35

God often uses famine, harsh words and circumstances, solitary confinement and even a form of prison to cause us to long for God's rescue and fulfillment. Listen to the Biblical account of Joseph's brothers as they learn to fear God in their circumstances and begin to see His providential work in their lives for their good and for God's glory.




Part One: The Amazing Power of True Forgiveness (How to awaken a seared conscience) Genesis 42:1-35

Are you running on empty? What if God chooses to use famine in our lives to awaken our deadened or seared conscience? Famine is often used by God in our lives to cause us to no longer be satisfied with the emptiness of what the world has to offer us. We choose to be filled up on the wrong things and leave each experience emptier than when we sat down at the table. Satisfaction and contentment can only happen as we are filled with Spirit and not with ourselves.
