Galatians: SOAR! Faith Without Limits "The Gospel, Grace, Freedom"
Matthew 7:15 Christ Jesus Himself states: 15 “Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. Galatians 1:6-10 6 I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting Him who called you by the grace of Christ, for a different gospel; 7 which is really not…
Jesus taught us again through Mark 10:35-45 God’s principle of leadership. Human beings are not created to handle the power and position they are not predestined to handle. It’s dangerous to covet the ranks and roles, and race to climb the corporate ladder because “power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” That is human nature. That’s how we are created. We do well by enjoying where we are and leading from there by serving.
How would you measure your success—temporally and eternally? Would you measure it by your possession, power, prestige, or performance? Many people are wise enough to know that possession, power, and prestige are not the metrics of success, but many think performance is. If you ask Jesus to give you the answer, what do you think he would say? Let's take a look at this rich young ruler's pursuit of eternal success.

Did any of you as a child say “I want to be a servant to someone when I grow up?” Anyone? Not likely would anyone want to be a servant. When we think of a servant we think of a slave, someone who is owned by someone else and who has no control of their own life. Have any of you watch the show on PBS…
In Mark 9, Jesus confronts his disciples with the upside-down reality of the Kingdom of Heaven. Leaders are servants, children are important, outsiders are insiders, and we ourselves are our own worst enemies. So much of this is over-familiar to us, but what happens when we really apply it to ouselves? Can it change us? Should it? Does it?

Servants 5 What then is Apollos? And what is Paul? They are servants through whom you believed, and each has the role the Lord has given. 6 I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth. 7 So then neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth.…
Every so often in Isaiah there is what is called a “Servant Song” They always speak of aspects of the ministry of Jesus but also about opposition to Him. There was one in 42 and one in 49. Tonight we will see the 3rd one. And in it we will see aspects of His suffering in graphic terms. In a few weeks…

The Deacon Ministry I find a list from a pastor friend about how you know you are a small rural church pastor. “I got 7 deacons on my mind, 4 that want to own me, 2 that want to stone me, 1 that says he’s a friend of mine.” You have more deacons than you do widows Gladly and thankfully that is not the…

Suffering is a universal experience of life befalling the good and evil alike. The difference lies in how we respond to the suffering. Suffering virtuously leads to eternal rewards.
[Joshua] Moving In!
Christopher Campbell • Southside Baptist Church in Decatur, AL • Sermon • • 35 views
Sunday, November 22, 2020. Joshua 24:29-33 | "The Servant of the LORD [Communion Service]." Becoming a servant is not something that is earned, but rather it is learned. Joshua began as Moses’ assistant. At his death, he is called “the servant of the Lord.” As the book of Joshua ends, three deaths are proclaimed. Each anticipates for us the death of Jesus, our Joshua. This sermon is the last in a preaching series through Joshua and helps us learn what it means to “proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes” (1 Cor 11:26) through the celebration of Communion.
