Life in Christ brings trials and hardships, but Jesus promises deliverance to those who persevere. All believers should expect hardships, and we must examine ourselves to know whether we are prepared for the path that awaits us.
The early church in Macedonia set an example of generosity that the Apostle Paul shared with believers across the world. Their example still inspires our actions today, because you can never out-give God.
Doctrine matters. What we believe about God changes how we relate to Him and how we live our lives. No church is healthy when it is a safe place for wolves to harm the flock without fear of being confronted.
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.
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.
