Communion

This week we’re taking a close look at Communion, discerning not only what it is, but exactly what it should mean to each and every one of us as we prepare our hearts to participate in it. There are several different views about Communion, but they all hold to the same truth: that this is a sacred moment in the life of a Christian, which requires both reflection and self-examination. It is far too easy to let Communion become just another part of a church service. Christ’s sacrifice for us is to be remembered, not just with solemnity, but also with joy when we consider the magnitude of what He has done for us. What does Communion mean to followers of Christ? What should our hearts and minds look like before we partake? Is it possible to unknowingly abuse Communion? Watch and learn as we examine Scripture to see deeper into the heart of Communion, and are reminded of our unity, not only as a church, but as the very body of Christ, as we celebrate this wonderful gift from our Savior!

Gossips

We’re closing out our series by discussing one of the easiest sins to fall into: gossip. Gossip feels good, and usually tempts us with things that we want; it’s easy to trivialize the terrible effect it can have on others until we, ourselves, fall victim to it. The book of Proverbs has much to say about gossip, describing in vivid detail the havoc that it can wreak in our lives and relationships. Why, then, is gossip so attractive to us in the first place? How can we let Scripture guide us past the temptations of gossip? What hope is there for the difficult people in our lives who struggle with this sin? One of the greatest dangers of gossip is that it doesn’t feel like outright sin against God. Watch as we lean on Scripture and learn how to remain mindful of the constant presence of God as we learn how to deal with difficult people!

Ungrateful

It’s almost Thanksgiving, and we’re continuing our series with a look at how to deal with the ungrateful people in our lives. Gratitude is a mindset that can sometimes be difficult to maintain; there are all sorts of situations in life that make it hard to focus on what we’ve been blessed with. Fortunately thankfulness, just like negativity, is contagious. Whether battling worries or other distractions, it is possible to maintain the type of attitude that will guide us toward a posture of thankfulness and praise. There will always be fears, distractions, and worries in life, but learning from Scripture, we can see how to trust in the Word of God for our reassurance. What do we do when the distractions of this world begin to negatively cloud our thoughts? How do we refocus on what is True? What examples are there in the Bible that can help us to see clearly? Watch and learn as we learn how to have grateful hearts in a world that would rather have us remain ungrateful.

Hypocritical

This week in our series, we take a sobering look at the hypocritical person. We’ve all most likely known or had to deal with a hypocrite before, it can be a delicate and frustrating situation to be in; and while we are called to deal with these people in a loving manner, constant vigilance is also required, as hypocrisy is contagious, and it is easier to fall into than one might think. Among Christians, hypocrisy causes a disparity between what we look like to the world, and what we truly are on the inside. What is our responsibility to the hypocrites in our lives? How do we deal with friends and family who are this way? Is it possible to help a hypocrite? Watch and learn as we look to Scripture to guide us in such a delicate matter as we continue our series on Dealing With Difficult People!

Critical

We’re continuing our series by talking about critical people. There’s nothing that affects us quite like criticism, and having the wrong type of critic in your life can be truly detrimental; even in the Bible, we can see that God takes the sin of the critic very seriously; criticism is in fact a sin, as it can severely damage the one receiving it. Our own reaction to criticism is important to consider as well; it is our job to discern the difference between the types of critics in our lives, and to know which criticisms we need to take to heart. What are some signs of a toxically critical person? What are some questions we should ask ourselves when faced with criticism? What God says about our lives matters more than the thoughts of others. Watch and learn as we discuss different types of criticism, and how to deal with critical people!
