    RESET - Sarah Shin
    Romans 12:9-10
    Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.

    Romans 12:10
    Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.

    Philemon 8-9a
    Although in Christ I could be bold and order you to do what you ought to do, yet I prefer to appeal to you on the basis of love.

    Philemon 10-21
    that I appeal to you for my son Onesimus, who became my son while I was in chains. Formerly he was useless to you, but now he has become useful both to you and to me. I am sending him — who is my very heart — back to you. I would have liked to keep him with me so that he could take your place in helping me while I am in chains for the gospel. But I did not want to do anything without your consent, so that any favor you do would not seem forced but would be voluntary. Perhaps the reason he was separated from you for a little while was that you might have him back forever — no longer as a slave, but better than a slave, as a dear brother. He is very dear to me but even dearer to you, both as a fellow man and as a brother in the Lord. So if you consider me a partner, welcome him as you would welcome me. If he has done you any wrong or owes you anything, charge it to me. I, Paul, am writing this with my own hand. I will pay it back—not to mention that you owe me your very self. I do wish, brother, that I may have some benefit from you in the Lord; refresh my heart in Christ. Confident of your obedience, I write to you, knowing that you will do even more than I ask.

    RESET: Pause - Jon Furman

    Galatians 5:19-21 (NLT)
    "When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God."

    Galatians 5:22-24 (NLT)
    "But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things! Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified them there."

    Ephesians 5:11 (NIV)
    “Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them."

    “Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” - Dr. Martin Luther King

    John 12:46 (ESV)
    “I have come into the world as light, so that whoever believes in me may not remain in darkness.”

    Galatians 5:25-26 (NLT)
    "Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives. Let us not become conceited, or provoke one another, or be jealous of one another."

    Sermon Notes - January 3, 2021
    RESET: Above the Noise - Megan Lemmons

    Romans 12:1-2 (NIV)
    Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”

    Romans 12:2 (NLT)
    Let God transform you by renewing the way you think.

    Ephesians 4:23-24 (NLT)
    Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. Put on your new nature, created to be like God—truly righteous and holy.

    Reset by knowing God

    Colossians 3:10 (NLT)
    Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him.

    John 10:14-15 (NIV)
    I am the good shepherd; I know my own sheep, and they know me, just as my Father knows me and I know the Father. So I sacrifice my life for the sheep.

    Reset by changing our inputs

    John 15:4
    Abide in me, and I will Abide in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you Abide in me.

    To abide means: To belong to; to endure; to stop & wait; or to stay.

    “Soaking in God’s presence is an act of trusting that God is at work in and through us even when we aren’t doing anything. It allows us to make space for God to restore us, give us rest, and maybe speak to us. As we practice soaking in God’s presence, we make ourselves more aware of how God is moving in our day-to-day moments” Brandi Miller

    Adele Calhoun Contemplative prayer is a way of being with God that does not depend on giving the holy One information about what we would like done in the world. Just as friends can enjoy one another without conversing, contemplative prayer is a way of being with God without wordiness. In contemplative prayer we rest and wait. Keeping our hearts alert and awake to the presence of God and his Word, we listen.

    Unplanned Journey

    In celebration of the coming of the one who has the power to bring hope, healing, and joy, Marty Miranda closes out our advent series "All Is Bright?"

    Sermon Notes - December 27
    All is Bright: Unplanned Journey - Marty

    To trust is to rely on, depend on and put our confidence in someone or something in order to gain a sense of safety, security, peace and hope.

    Psalm 62:8
    Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.

    Romans 5:1-5 (NLT)
    Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory. We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.

    Rely on Jesus more than ever.

    Bloom where you are planted.

    A Patient Endurance: Have a longer fuse!

    Christ-like Character: Experience the fruit of the Spirit in our life every day.

    A hope that doesn’t disappoint: Something to look forward to.

    Proverbs 13:12
    Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a dream fulfilled is a tree of life.

    Psalm 62:8
    Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a dream fulfilled is a tree of life.
