Pastor Jeff talks about the culture of honor towards the Lord and each other in the local church family.
Pastor Jeff delivers part 4 of our series on the The Lord’s Prayer, this time focusing on the section of the prayer regarding forgiveness. One of God the Father’s greatest gifts to His children is forgiveness, and He expects His kids to give this gift to others as generously as we’ve received it from Him.
Pastor Jeff continues a series on the gifts that God the Father gives to us through the Lord's Prayer. The second gift is that of surrender. When we pray for God’s will to be done, we must also fully surrender our will to experience all that God has for us. Pastor Jeff ends the message with a challenge to take inventory of the important things in our lives and invite God’s will into those areas through the gift of surrender.
This week we present an opportunity to help victims of the California Fires. Then Pastor Jeff begins a series on the gifts that God the Father gives to us through the Lord's Prayer. The first gift is that of thankfulness. Thankfulness is the key that unlocks the Father's blessings, which is why it's the first part of the Lord's Prayer. Pastor Jeff ends the message with a challenge to spend just 5 minutes a day being thankful.
Pastor Jeff looks at how Jesus handled a painful loss in his life while taking time to care for both the needs of himself and those around him. Jeff then examines how doing the same in our own lives keeps us from getting lost in our pain.
Pastor Jeff talks about how to walk with the Holy Spirit. Jesus knew we’d need this gift this power in our lives to become like him. To step out of our dysfunction, our pain, our unforgiveness. To lay down our addictions, our prejudices. That we’d need this power to step into the full free live he’s always wanted for us.
In the last part of the message on prayer Pastor Jeff talks about the road to a mature faith so that we can pray more effectively. A mature prayer life is focused on listening to the voice of God, stepping out in faith, and trusting God to uphold us.
Pastor Jeff delivers part 3 of a message on prayer. He outlines 3 areas that satan wants us to give up in order to keep us from experiencing the Lord's victory in our lives. Jeff then introduces the spiritual discipline of fasting as the companion of prayer in order to see breakthrough.
This week Pastor Jeff continues discussing how we are to pray for one another. Praying for one another is a powerful way to break isolation, discouragement, shame, and hopelessness. Amanda Stout shares a life-change testimony of how her breakthrough came in prayer. From there Pastor Jeff discusses the barriers in our lives that keep us from experiencing the power of praying for each other in our own lives.
Pastor Jeff starts a new series entitled One Another-ing Each Other based on Jesus' words in John 17:20-23. Jesus tells us that God’s heart is that we would really be for one another! That we’d become “mature in this one-ness” so that we’d experience a HUGE blessing of heaven here on earth and share that love with a lost and hurting world.
The first part of this series focuses on how praying for one another removes isolation and brings us together.
Pastor Jeff delivers part 2 of the message on breaking the spirit of poverty. After a quick recap of part 1 he gives an old testament example of God's generosity at work. He then shares a personal testimony of how a spirit of generosity has changed his life.
Pastor Jeff continues through the breaking chains series with part 1 of a message on breaking the spirit of poverty over our lives. The early church demonstrated God's generosity in powerful ways, but many of us fall short of that example today. Pastor Jeff examines how the fear of wealth and the fear of lack produce a poverty mindset in our lives that keeps us from living generously.
