PASTOR’S MESSAGE

Dear Friends,

This Sunday is the last sermon in our Fueled series. For me, this is the most difficult topic of them all: self-control. I’ve struggled to be a self-controlled person since childhood. I was an overweight kid, and my lack of self-control seemed to spill over into every other area of my life.

I’m not the only one who struggles with self-control. In fact, I believe it might be one of the hardest times in history to be self-controlled.

Everything our environment is pushing us to overindulge.

  • Gorging on addictive foods.
  • Binge watching Netflix.
  • Endlessly scrolling social media.
  • Maxing out our VISA.

Before we know it, our lives are filled with chaos.

But there is hope. We can be fueled by the Holy Spirit to exercise self-control in every area of our lives. We will find some wisdom in the latest self-help books. But more importantly, we will read Paul’s letter to Titus to find out how God gives us self-control.

If you’re looking to prepare for Sunday, watch this video on Titus, the book of the Bible we will be studying.

See you this Sunday at 9:00 or 10:30am, in person or online.

Sharing Christ’s love and victory,

Pastor Ben

CURRENT SERIES – FUELED

ICYMI – Last Sunday, Pastor Bill shared a message about faithfulness.God is always faithful to you, and being intentional about spending time with him helps you set priorities straight, making time for the things that matter most. Click here to view or read last Sunday’s message.

Coming Up This Sunday – This weekend, Pastor Ben will share a message about self-control. What we often forget when struggling with self-control is that it’s not all on us to stay away from sin. We can rely on God to help control our desires and be the people God intended us to be. Join us on Sunday at 9:00 or 10:30am at church or online.
