Sermons about Stars
Everyone has a past that has scars and stars but it is our responsibility to deal with our baggage no matter where it came from and we can give to God that which we are not designed to carry. Today we are to embrace grace and pursue virtue and to take action in our lives for God's kingdom plan for us.
As part of our "Philippians - The Pursuit of Joy" series, Jeremy Hess teaches "Shining not Whining" from Philippians 2:14-18.
Ronnie discusses how when we are called by Jesus and two or more are gathered together there WILL BE CONFLICT. Too much and too little conflict are dysfunctional. Because we are in Christ, dispute resolution can be one of our strengths. We are not to sue each other in public courts and our personal rights should not supersede Christ and His Church. Unresolved conflict damages our influence, but there is a huge difference between personal and criminal matters. Personal matters should be resolved "in-house". When we pursue healthy conflict resolution, we stand out like starts in a dark universe.
The disciples were distracted by the glitz and glamour of Jesus, and they were often unable to hear the message that He was trying to share with them. We also are often distracted by the things in our lives -- by the glitz and glamour of our world. Like the disciples, we do not always hear what God wants to speak to us: the Word of love, mercy, kindness, instruction, and salvation. Do you hear him as he reaches out to you with love, mercy and kindness?
What drives you? What do you need to have to make your life complete? And what do you do when you don’t have enough of what you feel you need? God says not to be anxious about these things. He says to use the resources He has given you, and to trust Him.
Jesus commanded us to love one another, and to treat each other the way He treats us. When we do that here, we become a sign of hope, love and grace to the rest of the world. We treat everyone with respect, because God treats us with respect. We pray for everyone with passion and love, because we have received passion and love from God.
