Jesus calls us to stay connected to Him, for our benefit. We find in Jesus’ words in John 15 that there will be benefits in our lives, from our lives, if we will stay connected to Jesus. Father God will adjust us when we need it so that our lives will produce more fruit. Benefits can include joy and living in a community of love.
Pastor Rebecca Malmin walks us through Psalm 51 and the benefits of a clean heart.
God’s love for us is meant to share. Psalm 68:4-6 Luke 12:33-34 give us perspective about who God is and how we should respond. Let us live the message that “love gives” by being courageously generous with our time, energy, and money. Let us listen to, love, and serve those who are lonely and in need.
God’s love for us is lavish, as seen in what Jesus has done for us, as experienced in who Jesus is. Exodus 34:5-7 Galatians 3.
Jesus brings forgiveness and healing in the realization of His Good News. In Mark 2:1-12 we find a story worth repeating. Does the response of Jesus, to a hole in the roof, surprise you?
Our friend Pastor Mike Hennigan gives us a message about spiritual family.
“Love God with all, and your neighbor as yourself.” – Jesus Matthew 22:37-40. We are better together. All people are created in the image of God and, therefore, all races and ethnic groups have the same equal status and equal unique value.
Our primary concept of self-identity should not be our ethnicity, but our membership as part of the body and family of Christ.
The picture of God’s people at the climax of history depicts a multiethnic congregation from every tribe, language, people, and nation, all gathered together in worship around God’s throne.
