Are you feeling surrounded by troubles in this season? At times it may be tempting to panic or have anxiety when we feel like God is not with us during our trials, but God has promised that he will never leave or forsake us. In Protected, Pastor Mike O'Connell teaches from Psalm 138 and reminds us that God is "Immanuel" which means "God with us". Though it may seem like our troubles are surrounding us, we must remember that we can surrender our fears and frustration to God, and trust that he will protect us and give us the victory. We pray you are encouraged by this message.
We are all called to be leaders in our sphere of influence. And though leadership can be a challenge to navigate, as we stay connected to God through prayer and spending time in his Word, God will care for and lead his people through us. In Slackherds, Pastor Todd Doxzon teaches from Ezekiel 34 and discusses the importance of selfless servant leadership. As we read God's message to his people through Ezekiel, we are reminded that Jesus will always go out of his way to find the lost, feed the lost, and fix the lost. We pray you are encouraged by this message!
Protect The Rock!
As believers, it is important for us to have a vision of God's plans for our lives. It is equally important that we cling to our faith so that we don't "fumble the ball". In Protect The Rock, Pastor Todd Doxzon teaches from the book of Jude and gives us four key things to consider as we allow God to be the quarterback in our lives. 1) God's grace is for mistakes and does not give us a license to sin. 2) The greatest leaders are also the greatest followers; leaders need to understand humility before they claim authority. 3) The people in our sphere of influence should be able to see the fruit of God's Spirit in our lives. 4) There is a lot of division in today's culture and it is important for us to be a healing balm, rather than allow our pride to continue to cause division. We pray you are encouraged by this message!
What is your definition of love? The English language has one word for love with many definitions, which at times can make it difficult to know how to use it correctly. In Real Love, Pastor Todd Doxzon reminds us that Agape Love, the unconditional love of God for his children, is what real love is all about. As he teaches from 1 John 4:7-21, we learn that Agape Love is sacrificial and supernatural, and leaves no room for fear or hate. The more that we love God supremely and stay connected to him, the more that his love flows out of us to love others supernaturally. We pray you are encouraged by this message!
Watch Your Mouth
Have you ever said something hurtful to someone you care about? In Watch Your Mouth, as Pastor Todd Doxzon teaches from James 3 he challenges us to take inventory of what's coming out of our mouths. We have to Control our tongues so that they don't become Corrupt; and by keeping our Connection to God, he will help us to speak words that are encouraging. We pray you are encouraged by this message!
Have you ever felt intimidated by something God has called you to do? Or perhaps you're often fearful that you're going to mess things up. In I Can't, as Pastor Todd Doxzon teaches from Jeremiah 1, he reminds us that we are going to have to step out of our comfort zones to answer God's call on our lives. We were created by a loving, sovereign God who pre-programmed each of us with a unique and specific purpose. Though we may feel fearful at times, we can't allow our fears to hinder us from moving forward because fear is a liar. We pray you are encouraged by this message!
Love motivated, real.
