The Life – Part 3

Gathering to worship with the church is a practice that helps us to abide in Christ. The church is a “who” far more than it is a “where.” People are worshipers by nature; they don’t choose whether they will worship, they can only decide who or what to worship. The church gathers to worship God together.

How to Grow – Pt. 4

Throughout this series we have looked at 3 core habits of the Christian: reading Scripture, attending church, and today’s topic, prayer. Prayer is not complicated; a young child can pray. But it can be difficult! No one feels like they are an expert at prayer. Everyone feels like they need to improve. Lets explore how to grow in our prayer lives.

How to Grow – Pt. 3

The author of Hebrews gives us four things to do as Christians. Let us draw near to God, hold fast, stir up love and meet together encouraging each other.

The spiritual discipline of reading Scripture, or doing devotions, is a major influence on how we grow. 2 Timothy tells us that Scripture is profitable for teaching, reproof, correction, and training in righteousness.

The Art and Science of Gratitude – Pt. 2

Quite often we get the feeling of joy and gratitude in reverse order. We think that if we are feeling joy that it will make us grateful. This is backwards. We need to be grateful first, no matter the circumstances, and the feelings of joy will follow.

The Art and Science of Gratitude – Pt. 1

Humans tend to notice the bad over the good. We tend to focus on the negative far more than the positive. We have all experience one negative word drowning out many positive words. Why is that? And how can we change our hearts so the negative doesn’t outweigh the positive as much?

First Love

As Christians, we can have a tendency to lose the passion and motivation we experienced as new believers. When that happens, John gives us three steps we can take to refuel our passion: Remember, Repent, and Return.

Discipline of Service

The apostles have a crown on their minds, but Jesus had a cross on His. Christ teaches us that service is true greatness. Serve out of gratitude for what He has done.
