A Song for the Fearful-Psalm 3
Did you know the most common command given by God in the Bible is "do not fear?" Do you think the Lord knows something about our proclivity to be anxious and afraid? Fear and worry is a constant in people's lives today, but it doesn't have to be that way. As we look at a song that King David penned during a very scary time in his life, we'll be given some resources for what to do when we are anxious and afraid.
A Song for the Discouraged Psalm 1
If you were to ask the average person what they want in life, their response would likely be, “I just want to be happy.” Everyone wants to be happy, and yet recent polls and statistics tell us that over 70% Americans say they are unhappy.
In this first sermon of our new, Summer series we’re going to look at a Psalm (song) for the discouraged. We’ll find that there are actually things in life more important than happiness, and by pursuing those things—we may just find happiness along the way.
Laodicea-The Lukewarm Church
Laodicea was a vibrant city in the first century. Much like our own American culture, they were driven by hard work, determination, self-will, and a deep desire for progress, innovation and prosperity. As a result, the city became very wealthy and affluent, and didn’t need anything from anyone. Unfortunately, this church began to adopt that same attitude of self-sufficiency.
In this message we'll explore the dangers of pride and self-sufficiency in the church, and how to rightly place our dependence upon the all-satisfying sufficiency of the person and work of Jesus Christ.
Philadelphia- The Enduring Church
A small church in size and influence compared to those around them, Philadelphia was the first of two churches in Revelation to have no corrections from Jesus. Though they would have faced all the same temptations of culture and compromise, Jesus commended them for keeping His Word and not denying His name. Not only did they know the Word, they aligned their lives to it as they followed Christ, and Jesus told them to hold fast, persevere and finish well, for there would be benefits for them in the future for remaining faithful now.
In this sermon we will be encouraged by the example of the Church of Brotherly Love, to know the Bible well and do what it says.
Sardis-The Slumbering Church
The church at Sardis had a history of faithfulness to the things of God, but in an effort to just get along with everyone and not offend anybody, they became careless over time. Rather than remaining vigilant and contending for the truth, they became a dead church as they lived off the security of the past and allowed for compromise in the present. In this sermon we’ll be challenged to continue to be faithful to the Lord and live distinct lives, spending time with Him daily so we can love the people around us while also holding fast to the truth of His Word.
Thyatira- The Wayward Church
The church of Thyatira was a church zealously committed to love and good deeds. They excelled at serving as the hands and feet of Jesus, extending compassion toward those in need. Yet in time, their love grew without discernment, and in the name of tolerance they began to love the very things Jesus hates.
In this message we'll examine what it looks like to be a church that is all love with no truth, and learn how we can guard ourselves from the current cultural temptation of doctrinal and moral compromise.
