We are told that God's grace can never be taken away or withdrawn. However, the Biblical case for this is often not as straightforward as we are led to believe. In fact, there is something that can place God's grace out of our reach. Find out what it is. Jn 10:27-28; Ro 8:35-39; Jas 4:1-2; Eph 2:1-9; Mt 18:23-35; 1Jn 4:7-21
Is there an activity or hobby that you have wished you could get involved with but didn’t think you had the time or any good reason? Or, are you already totally involved in something you really enjoy but you get heat for how much time you spend with it – heat from someone else or yourself? Stick with me and you may have more than permission to do it by the end of this sermon.
The first discussion of a three part conversation on a particularly Christian view of ecology. In the discussion, Pastor Robert Campbell of Santa Margarita Community Church suggests that all ecological action is religious. For more information on A Rocha USA: http://www.arocha-usa.org/
The Body of Christ needs to be on guard constantly. To build the body we need to seek God's help so that what flows out of us (our mouths) is of God. The Church (Us) need to take care that we build upon God's word. Because those who come to us for guidance and fellowship become like us.
NOTE: at about 17min the audio cuts out for nearly 3min...this is when the video played (viewable by clicking on the View Video button); the audio will start back up when the video is over (sorry for any confusion). Worship is not about us...it is about God. Unfortunately there is much confusion about this in our culture… Likewise, there is much confusion about "spirituality" as well. In fact, it is often claimed that “spirituality” will differ from person to person. Be that as it may, the reality is we live in an increasingly “spiritual” world in which, at the same time that a growing number are pursuing “spiritual things,” many are also walking away from The Church. While we are all spiritual beings in a sense (cf. Gen1:26-27), Christian spirituality is unique. Additionally, it seems there is no worthy “spiritual cause” in the world that does not fall under the Lordship of Jesus the Christ. Granted, the pursuit (and understanding) of something that is spiritual may need tweaked a bit…but rest assured God is concerned about all things “spiritual” (e.g., environment, peace, love, calm, inner peace, etc.). Another way of saying this; all “spiritual” concerns and pursuits people have can trace their roots back to God. On top of that, only He can allow the pursuit of what is “spiritual” to be fulfilling instead of a self-made prison. This truth makes the pursuit of “spirituality” outside of The Church so sad…people are committing themselves to a never-ending pursuit of sorrow if they seek “spirituality” outside of God’s will…
