The Stuff We “Need”

It’s so easy to get sucked into comparing ourselves with others. We try to have all the latest-and-greatest, strive to be the best, try to gain power, and ignore the fact that we’re attempting to fill a God-shaped void with earthly things. What we really need is God’s love and forgiveness, which we have through Jesus. 1 Timothy 6:6-10

Take up your cross – In the Golden Years

We come to the golden years in life where we deal more and more with calluses of the soul. We always imagined that we were in control, but more and more it becomes all too clear that we are not. It’s a painful, bitter pill to swallow. How do we during this time of life maintain a healthy attitude that gives thanks to Jesus for each day even though it may not be the day we dreamed it would be? Ecclesiastes 12:1-8

Empty Hands

When it seems as though we never have enough, the empty tomb is a reminder of how rich we really are. Look at all the spiritual blessings that you have right now in Christ Jesus. Jesus means contentment in the midst of whatever life situation we find ourselves in.  Scriptures:  Acts 24:10-21, Luke 24:13-25 Sermon Text:   Ephesians 1:3-14

Sharing

As members of God’s family we share our concern for one another, we share our resources with those in need, we share God’s promise that he will always take care of us and meet all our needs. Confidence in God leads to contentment and lasting peace. In this way we can always stay at rest in God’s promises no matter what we face here in this world as we press on toward our real home in heaven. Sermon Text: Philippians 4:10-20
