There is no moment in our lives when we don’t need fresh manna taught from the Word of God to fill our souls, especially in the context of the local church. In this message from Titus 2:1-10, Pastor Ritch exhorts men of every age to stay engaged and connected into the work of the local church and leading their homes and communities to walk in accordance with the Scripture.
In this message from Deuteronomy 31, Dr. Daniel Bennett (Senior Pastor of Bethany Community Church in Washington, Illinois) teaches about the limited, temporary and fragile nature of the authority given to church shepherds, and the God-honoring example Moses offers for church leaders today.
Our radical worship of God leads us to confront our own selfishness. Self-centeredness always presses the church to be about disputable matters, while God-centeredness always yields disputable matters over to God and humbly pursues the spiritual health of others.
Jesus’s love is scandalous. It’s humility, clarity and uniqueness fills and empowers all those who profess faith in Christ. In this Palm Sunday message from John 13, Pastor Josh Beakley teaches about the joy – and pain – that believers experience as they live out this love in a world marred by sin.
Devotion to God leads us to commit ourselves to good citizenship. Our submission to God always ties us to a heart of submission to every God-given authority in our lives, which means that Christians should be the best of citizens in this present world.
Devotion to God leads us to overcome evil with good. Satan’s strongest temptations to destroy our soul strike us when we are hurt. Pain caused by others is always a time of intense spiritual warfare against sin in our own hearts.
