OIL RESERVES: Get Filled with God
Many times Christians make the mistake of thinking that participating in Sunday services is enough for a strong devotional life.
However, just like our bodies would be weak if we only fed them every 7 days, our spirits need daily nourishment to keep our "oil reserves" full.
In this message, Pastor Todd lays out three primary methods to make sure that our private devotional lives fill our reserves.
OIL RESERVES: The Perforated Pouch
We all have our own “leaks” of our oil reserves. 3+ hours of screens, Netflix, podcasts, scrolling, video games, Youtube videos, social media, smartphone games, news programs… you’re gonna run out of oil if you’re spending over 20 hours a week there but only filling up with oil once a week at church.
In this message, Pastor Diehl discusses those and other leaks, and shows us how we can stop those leaks so we stay filled.
OIL RESERVES: I Can't Bring the Oil for You
This sermon explores the Parable of the Ten Virgins, found in Matthew 25. In this parable, Jesus warns us about being "ready" for His return. But what does it mean to be ready? And how can we know when it's time to begin getting ready?
We'll also address some common misconceptions about what it means to be "ready" for Christ's return. Finally, we'll answer two key questions: What is oil and why do we need oil? And how do we get our own supply of oil?
