He teaches about Saul’s transformation to Paul and how the Lord used him in mighty ways. Bill gave 4 tips for reading scripture: 1- Read it like you’ve never read it before, 2 – Ask God to help you visualize, 3 – Ask God to help you understand it, and 4 – Ask God to help make application to our lives. Listen in this week, as Bill Jenkin III shares with us. Also a reminder to keep reading the book of Colossians.

Colossians 1:9-14

February 18, 2024

In this series, Pastor Nathan challenges us to read the entire book of Colossians to gain better understanding. He uses a picture of a tree showing roots that represent our beliefs and the leaves represent the fruits of our behavior. The stronger roots/belief will results in more fruitful behavior. Pastor preaches that God: 1 – adopted us, 2 – delivered us, 3 – transferred us. So we should ask God to: 1 – adopt, deliver and transfer them, 2- to help them know what to do, 3 – to help them do it. Listen in this week as we learn about how beliefs and behaviors go together in spreading the Gospel.

In this sermon, Pastor Nathan asks: “What would the Lord have you ask Him for? Relief from an illness? Release from a sin? Recovery from an addiction? Or something else?” In this message, we will learn about compassion. Pastor preaches that Jesus has compassion… So we need to: 1- Ask Him for help, 2 – Trust His timing, 3 Pray earnestly for laborers. Compassion is not mere pity, it requires action or sacrifice.

In this sermon, Pastor Nathan preaches: Jesus is the answer to sin for everyone. He asks, “do I act like Jesus is the answer?” Our actions align with our beliefs. If Jesus is the answer… 1 – Am I making an effort to follow Him? 2 – Who am I bringing to Him? 3 – When to do I cry for mercy? Listen in this week, as we look at how Jesus is the answer in the Renew series.

His Word, His Church, and His Supper) 2 – bring Jesus to them 3 – stop doubting (feed faith rather than doubt) Listen in this week to Renew – following Jesus into the New Year.
