The Absurdity of the Unforgiving Christian - Conflicted: Part 5 - Woodside Bible Church Warren
As we walk this earth there will be pain; it is inevitable. Our pain may be physical or emotional and could come from a fellow brother or sister in Christ. Perhaps they sinned against you, said hurtful words, or brought harm upon you. When these circumstances occur, it can be difficult to forgive. We may wrestle with forgiveness for years, only being able to come to a place of forgiveness by the grace of Jesus. As we close out our series, Conflict[ed]: Pursuing Peace in a Cancel Culture, we will dive into why forgiveness is necessary in the body of Christ. Looking to Jesus as an example, as He forgave those who persecuted Him, beat Him, and mocked Him, yet still went to the cross to die from them. His model is inspiring for us as we look to love those who hurt us. Forgiveness is necessary as followers of Christ because we have been forgiven much and because forgiveness is the way of the kingdom. Join us in the final sermon of the series, The Absurdity of the Unforgiving Christan, and allow the Holy Spirit to speak to your heart.
Making Up Instead of Breaking Up - Conflicted: Part 4 - Woodside Bible Church Warren
Have you ever been caught in a conflict with someone? Maybe it got heated and things were said, and you walked away thinking, “I’m done with them.” In today’s society, it can be easy to walk away from moments of conflict with a flight response, to cancel that person rather than reconcile the conflict. Jesus calls us to a higher standard; He desires for His children to not be at odds with one another, but to work things out in a God-honoring way. In our series, Conflict[ed]: Pursuing Peace in a Cancel Culture, we are continuing to address the topic of conflict within the church and our personal lives. Today, we will learn that to reconcile our conflicts with one another, we should do so in a way that honors Jesus, following His words straight from scripture. He calls us to amend our conflicts by going to win personally, communally, and congregationally. God cares about how we treat our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, enough to equip us with guidelines to approach those we have been conflicted with. Tune in to the latest message of the series, Making Up Instead of Breaking Up, and hear how Christian relationships should pursue repentance and reconciliation.
Lost in the Crowd - Conflicted: Part 3 - Woodside Bible Church Warren
When we are in Christ, we are called to look different from the world. In that, how we act, speak, and treat others should not be like how the world does. More importantly, we must treat our family of Christ with respect and intentional care. We are to treat them with the same love that Jesus has shown us. We are continuing our series, Conflict[ed]: Pursuing Peace in a Cancel Culture. We will hear from the gospel of Matthew the importance of loving our brothers and sisters in Christ well. Jesus has called us to lift one another up, rather than tear each other down; and to chase after the one who strays from the faith rather than mock or cancel them. Join us in the newest sermon of the series and learn how God values and pursues us as if there was only one of us.
Hindrance or Helpful - Conflicted: Part 2 - Woodside Bible Church "CAMPUS NAME"
Our actions matter. How we speak, act, and represent ourselves, holds much weight. When we are representing Christ, we should act and speak in ways of giving life, love, encouragement, and correction when needed. We are continuing in our new series, Conflict[ed]: Pursuing Peace in a Cancel Culture, today, we will look at the importance of our personal role in building up the body of Christ. As members of the body of Christ we should look to build others up and not hinder their faith. In the scripture, Jesus lays out the necessity of not leading our community of believers into sin. It can be a slippery slope, it is easy to not have a handle on our words or actions, but when we claim Christ that is a high calling, we need to steward that gift well. Christians should look to build up the faith, not hinder the faith of others. Join us today in the next message of the series, Hinderance not Helpful, and hear the importance of not leading others into sin and leading by removing our own sin.
Embracing Inability - Conflicted: Part 1 - Woodside Bible Church Warren
Conflict is inescapable. It intertwines itself into every part of our lives. In our relationships, conflict will always come because of our fallen nature. But in a world that always looks to put others down and cancel each other, Jesus calls us to a better way, a peaceful way. Today, we begin a new series, Conflict[ed]: Pursuing Peace in a Cancel Culture, where we will look at the gospel of Matthew and learn what Christ says about the body of believers. We will answer this question today: what does greatness look like in the community of Christ? Jesus calls His body to be people who love and care for each other well and when we look to reconcile conflicts, we should do so with humility. He calls us to depend on Him fully, not leaning on our own independence. Join us for the first message of the series, Embracing Inability, as we discover how we should pursue dependence and practice loving care instead of introducing temptation.
Healing for the Hurting - Thy Kingdom Come: Part 7 - Woodside Bible Church Warren
Several times, in the New Testament, Jesus’ healing ministry is on display where His power and authority are magnified. In our daily walks today, Jesus still has the same power and dominion over death and sickness. At times, He may not answer our prayers or fulfill our wishes regarding loved ones, or ourselves, how or when we would like. However, He makes it clear that through His healing touch and timing; dignity is restored, life is resurrected, and the world is amazed. Today, we are completing our series, Thy Kingdom Come, where we will see Jesus’ reign over disease and death. Throughout this series we have looked at Jesus’ reign over creation, demons, anxiety, and challenges. Join us in the final sermon of this series, Healing for the Hurting, and allow your heart to be impacted by Christ’s great love.
