    Your Spiritual Journey: Where Are You on the Pathway?

    Your Spiritual Journey: Where Are You on the Pathway?

    Presented at Curwensville Alliance on 7/3/22 by Pastor Steve Shields.







    Where are you on your spiritual journey?















    Here are some questions to ask to help determine your location. How am I using the time given me to advance the kingdom? Where am I connecting with other believers? What place does the Bible hold in my life?







    You could be curious, but that isn’t where Jesus wants you to stay. You could be desperate, but that isn’t where Jesus wants you to stay. You could be consumed by guilt, regret or shame, but that isn’t where Jesus wants you to stay. You could be skeptical, but that isn’t where Jesus wants you to stay.







    Some moves Jesus may want you to make today. Choose to move from trivialities to exploring what Christ wants to do in your life.







    If you allow desperation to move you toward God, you will find hope.







    When we take our guilt and shame to Christ, He cleans us up.







    If you think moving from skepticism to rejoicing would take a miracle, take heart, Jesus is in the miracle business.

    Presented at Curwensville Alliance on 6/19/22 by Pastor Steve Shields.







    Listen to Pastor Steve as he discusses being fishers of men.















    Why are we fishing for people?







    People have lost their way. People are heading toward destruction. Jesus is calling us to help others discover the gift He offers.







    Jesus is calling us to be fishers of men!







    So, how do we fish for men?

    Jesus Rejected At Nazareth :: BIBLE STORIES

    Jesus Rejected At Nazareth :: BIBLE STORIES

    Presented at Curwensville Alliance on 6/12/22 by Pastor Steve Shields.







    There are two types of contempt, blatant and subtle.















    Subtle contempt can be non-engagement, casual engagement or distracted engagement.







    The problem with contempt is it prevents you from honoring God. It prevents you from receiving blessing and it increases pain in life.







    The keys to avoiding contempt are to keep your perspective of God fresh. Get to know God more deeply. Practice saying yes to God.







    Choose to avoid the subtle contempt that may creep into your spiritual life.

    The Royal Official’s Son :: BIBLE STORIES

    The Royal Official’s Son :: BIBLE STORIES

    Presented at Curwensville Alliance on 6/5/22 by Pastor Steve Shields.







    Why would Jesus make this point in John 4:48 “Unless you people see signs and wonders,” Jesus told him, “you will never believe.”?















    None of them are coming to Him, and it is an “outsider” who comes to Jesus. Jesus wants us to bring Him our needs. Because when we bring Him our needs, we bring our hearts.







    Pastor Steve discusses a Biblical understanding of belief. Belief is not something I manufacture. It is not something I psych up in myself. It is not a leap of faith. It is not just nodding my head.







    Instead, Biblical belief is a choice to trust Jesus!







    Jesus invites you to trust Him. He invites you because He wants your heart. He invites you because it is the only way to really live.







    You respond to His invitation by genuinely desiring His help, and genuinely desiring HIM!

    The Woman At The Well :: BIBLE STORIES

    The Woman At The Well :: BIBLE STORIES

    Presented at Curwensville Alliance on 5/29/22 by Pastor Steve Shields.















    When I am without Jesus I may look like the Samaritan woman at the well. I may seem like a loner, someone to avoid, cynical, pragmatic, clueless, insignificant or worthless. My life may seem hopeless to others.







    But just like the woman at the well, the answer to my problems is Jesus.







    Jesus tells His followers that people are thirsty. We need to open our eyes to those around us who are thirsty.







    Giving Water to the thirsty must be our priority. We must make giving Jesus to others a priority, which will mean tending to something besides our own agenda.







    We need to examine our commitment of giving Water to the thirsty.
