Sermons on Spiritual Growth
Daily distractions abound. What if those distractions were having an impact on our relationship with Jesus? Martha is a great reminder that you can be busy for Jesus and miss the friendship of Jesus.
Failure is an experience we all have. Will failure define you or refine you. Jesus wanted failure to refine Peter and use it as his platform for ministry. He might do the same thing in your life.
We all enjoy others doing for us. If we aren’t careful, we can drift from being the servant Jesus has called us to be to wanting to be served. Even the disciples struggled with it. Listen in on how Jesus challenges them.
Your life has a spiritual tempo and your tempo should match the rhythm of the redeemer. How do we practice moving at Jesus’ pace? Slow down and listen as Chaplain John Richardson brings the message this week.
The church can be equally susceptible to drifting from its God-given purpose. Listen as Pastor Wes speaks about ways we can be more eager to help the poor and avoid cynicism. Let this message encourage you to build relationships and help your default posture be “yes.”
The pandemic has made gathering difficult over the last two years. An essential function of what it means to be a church is rooted in the gathering of community. We all need community to feel encouraged, to flourish and to thrive.
The “I don’t care,” or apathetic outlook, especially the spiritual kind, can kill the soul and destroy the mission of the church. If you find yourself feeling this way, ask God for feeling again, seek out those with a spiritual zeal and/or find one way to strengthen your serve muscle for the glory of God. Ask God to awaken your heart and let go of that numb feeling.
When we face criticism we can easily drift from God’s purpose for us. Ask yourself, “Who am I living for?” Don’t let the criticisms of others deflate and destroy God’s purpose in you.
When we get distracted or lose interest, our attention goes elsewhere. That’s normal in everyday life, but dangerous when it comes to our faith. This first installment of our Drift series reminds us to pay attention to our relationship with Jesus.
Love can sometimes manifest itself in gifts. But gifts aren’t sufficient to define love. It’s something bigger and more challenging, which is why you’ll need God to really love other people.
Listen as Taylor Hammett, guest pastor from North End Collective, brings a message about being an apprentice of Jesus! Pastor Taylor speaks about how Jesus doesn’t just invite us to believe in Him or applaud Him for what He’s done for us, but to be more like Him in all aspects of our lives! So, who is Jesus calling you to become?
We can listen to, or be given some really bad advice sometimes. In this message you will hear about how it matters who you listen to. Even when ignorance or pride gets in the way we can seek God’s wisdom through His word, or from those in our spiritual community.
