A Servant Heart

The gifts and abilities we have can be put to use for all kinds of different goals, but the ultimate goal is to use what God has given us to bless, encourage, support and build up others. Sermon Text: 1 Corinthians 14

Words to Love By

Through his life and death Jesus taught us that God’s love is a self-sacrificing love that finds fulfillment in serving others. All we do in life is to be marked by this type of love. Sermon Text: John 15:9-17

Profile: Paul

Paul knew who he was in Christ and he wanted others to know the treasures of being in Christ. Sermon Text: Colossians 1:24-2:5

Imitating

Our being stuck can sometimes be a form of self-centeredness. When we dwell on ourselves too much we end up comparing ourselves to others in an unhealthy way. To help get us unstuck the Apostle Paul redirects our attention to Christ’s willingness to be our servant. This alone has the power to produce true humility in us. Humility isn’t thinking less about ourselves, but thinking about ourselves less so that we put the interests and needs of others ahead of our own, just like Christ Jesus did for us. Sermon Text: Philippians 2:1-11
