"Christ is Enough"
Mark Hoover • Sermon • • 11 views
Paul is providing specific instructions for believers' relationships with members of their own household as well as with those outside and unfamiliar with the Christian Faith. The overriding principle given is the Lordship of Jesus Christ, which transforms our relationship with him and with other people. The early church was conscious of living out the Christian message in every area of life as a 7 day a week comittment. Whether it be in the home or at work. Paul approaches the idea of discipleship as a complete dependence on God in every area of life.

· First off, I know that not all here today are married. Some of you are single by choice, and some of you are not. Some of you are not yet of an age to even consider marriage. In all that follows, as I talk about God’s design for marriage, if you are single I don’t want you to feel like second-class…
Sometimes we just want to go somewhere where everyone knows our name -- where we're accepted for who we are (faults and all.) Church is to be that place -- for even if not everyone knows your name -- God does, and God accepts you just as you are. We might be as fortunate as Mary Magdalene to hear God speak our name -- or we might not. But be assured, God does know you, and loves you. Just as Mary was called to share her Good News with the disciples -- we are called to share God's work in our lives with those we know too.
It is true that we have experienced little persecution as American believers. While we see the potential in the not so distant future, as of now, we have been spared intense persecution. The believers who were the recipients of this letter did not share that same experience. They struggled through much…

ATTENTION Whether he was just stating the obvious or subverting the faithful, the statement by our president caught believers off guard. He said, “Whatever we once were, we’re no longer a Christian nation, at least not just . . .” Now many would agree. We have strayed far from where this country began.…

Journey : Home
David Kelley • Hill City Church • Sermon • • 5 views
Sense of security when we think about home. Creating a home in our heart for Jesus. Is Jesus welcome to our own home? How to prepare our hearts to be a home for Jesus. What kind of home do we have prepared for God right now? Matthew 1:18-25. Joseph had an opportunity to prepare a home for Jesus on the very first Christmas. Do we choose to participate in God's work? 1. Are we willing to move from "fear" to "faith"? 2. Is the home of my heart going to be rash? or reflective? Do I react? Or do I respond? 3. A maturing follower of Christ is shortening the distance between reacting and responding. 4. Is my home cowardly or courageous to what God wants me to do? Many of us fall short in our spiritual walk with Christ. 5. Is my home selfish? Or selfless? Less of myself and more of God?
