When we find joy in the resurrected Lord we will share it with the world! In this Easter sermon, Pastor Ritch shares the experiences of Cleopas, one of the disciples that encountered Jesus on the road to Emmaus in Luke 24:13-35.
Our worship of God is the ultimate goal of the Gospel. Worship answers the question “Why?” for everything we do as a church. Our worship of God is the root of every good fruit in His church. If we as a church are lacking in any horizontal dimension, we must begin by attending to the root.
The most basic duty and greatest need for each believer is to consciously place our whole person under the Lordship of Jesus each day, including both the belief in our heart as well as the confession with our mouth.
When we find joy in something, it is the most natural thing in the world to invite others to join us in expressing joy in that joyful thing. In this message, Pastor Ritch teaches from Psalm 95, about pursuing joy in God by worshipping with our brothers and sisters in Christ as the gathered church.
In this message, Pastor Josh Beakley teaches from Ephesians 5:15-21, about the temptation to live a life of self-indulgence and comfort. This passage of Scripture gives the church a countercultural way in which to live under the influence of wisdom, leading to a deeper walk with Christ.
