In This Together
Series: Sermons 2019
Based on scripture - Joshua 24:14-24 There are priorities for serving the Lord with your family. First: recognize all of God’s provision. You didn’t get here all by yourself. Everything we have, are, ever will be, is from the Lord. Second: choose god above all else. Idols (diversions) steal our attention and are whatever takes our primary attention off of Jesus. And in serving the Lord, we are called to always take someone with you. Christianity is meant to be lived with others. Third: go all in. Don’t just sit there, do something. No turning back. It’s all or nothing, you can’t serve God and the world.   Other supporting / reference scripture:
   Romans 12:1
   Hebrews 10;24-25
   James 1:22-25
   Luke 14:27, 33
   Luke 9:61-62

    Love Your Enemy
    Series: Sermons 2019
    Base scripture for this sermon is Luke 6:27-38
    How do you "...love your enemies..." in reality? God does call us to do this, and God means what He says. God is very particular with His words and wording. How do you walk out forgiveness? Remember it does not necessarily include reconciliation. Many say "forgiving is good for you", but first and foremost it is to honor God and His Word. He tells us to forgive (our enemies). We must remember, anytime we do something to someone, good or bad, we are doing it to Jesus first. Honor God to His Word!

    Are You Linked In
    When we start in our Christianity, it start with the ABC's, fundamental to us just like we started with in Elementary School. Our Christianity ABC begins with "A" for "Admitting you're a sinner", "B" where we grow to "Believe Jesus died on the cross for our sin", and finally "C" when we "Confess Jesus as Savior and the new boss for my life". For all this we need Faith. Faith is our link to God. It gives us a true link to reality, a clear link to recorded history, and a link to contemporary relevance. Faith still works, and with it we believe God and we do what He says. Source Scripture Hebrews 11:1-6 Other reference scripture John 1:14,18 Rom. 1:20 I Cor. 13:11 Heb. 4:16 Heb. 10:22

    Next Steps
    Paul writes to the Philippians about obedience and working out their salvation. This is sanctification - the next steps after we have been saved. Each day we become stronger, by working out spiritually thru prayer, reading our Bible, regular worship attendance and fellowship with other Christians. This is the encouragement Paul gives to the Philippians that carries thru today. We should, and we must! Scripture basis from Phil. 2:12-18 Other scripture cited: Phil. 1:6-7 Eph. 2:8-9 Rom. 6:11-12 I Thes. 4:3 Phil. 2:3-4 II Cor. 5:10 Rom. 8:29-30

    Tell a Friend
    Pastor Tom encourages us to tell a friend about Jesus and your own story about how you know him, how He has impacted you, and what He means to you. In John 1:35-49 the scripture tells how John and other disciples told others about Jesus and pointed them to Him as the Messiah, son of God and the King - our Savior. And we have been instructed by Jesus himself to do the same. Make Jesus Known!

    Do I have to Speak in Tongues?
    Supernatural speech, known as speaking in tongues, is normal and not to be feared. It follows Biblical precedent where both spontaneous Spirit-inspired speech and prophetic declarations are documented in both the Old and the New Testaments, and is what makes the Gospel go.
