Sermon #29 from the "God with Us" series. Scripture from John 11:45-12:12.
Everyone agrees: love is the greatest thing. But not everyone has the same understand of love that Jesus desires in this disciples. True love begins with a love for God and then is extended to our neighbors. Listen as pastor Jody Sledge calls us to hear Jesus' call to love and challenges us to love because we have first been loved.
Looks can be very deceiving. What seems perfectly fine outwardly can be less than desirable inside, so be careful of judging a book by its cover! The church of Corinth may have looked good from a distance, but up close, a different story emerged.
Attitude - A settled way of thinking or feeling, typically reflected in a person's behavior.
The plan of God to bless the world is just too much to believe. The curse of sin is obvious and everything tried up to this point just makes more of a mess of things. Now God promises to bless the world through one man...and the promises of God to Abraham are far smaller than those He has made to us.
Guarding Our God Honoring Worship Pastors' Fellowship Message.
After two of Jacob's sons, Simeon and Levi, enact sinful revenge against the men of Shechem for sin committed against their sister by one man of the city (Gen. 34)--a vengeance that was partly fueled by Jacob's indifference to the whole matter--Jacob and his household are placed in a dangerous situation. Jacob fears for his safety and that of his household. In the midst of this, God tells Jacob to go to Bethel and make an altar that he and his household would worship God. It reveals that the fundamental purpose for which God creates his covenant people is for the worship of God. Thus, it is the worship of God that God's people must make as their focus. According to Genesis 35 it will mean that they pursue holiness, encounter God's protection and focus on who God is and what God does.

In 1:5-16, Paul explains why Titus’ appointment of qualified leadership (vv. 5-9) and opposition to unqualified leadership (vv. 10-16) in the Cretan churches is so important, namely because there are many false teachers in Crete turning people away from the centrality of the gospel (1:11, 14). In order to help Titus and the churches recognize and oppose ungodly leadership, Paul gives 12 characteristics of false teachers and 2 action steps to take in order to prevent them from harming the church.
