Treasured Truth Weekend - How Haters Hate, Part 2

8/17/2019
More
When we encounter criticism, we can use it to help evaluate whether our focus is on God or whether it’s on ourselves. If God called us to accomplish something, but we get offended when we encounter criticism about the task at hand, then we should ask ourselves—why are we offended that somebody is criticizing what God has told us to do?

Scripture says that where your treasure is, there your heart is also. And it’s true. Pastor Ford will tell us today, “Show me where you spend your time, your talent, your treasure and your talk, and I’ll tell you who and what is your focus.” And then he’ll ask—“If someone were to look at your checkbook, would they be able to tell that you’re a Christian and that you love Jesus?”

For the Love of Money, Part 1

8/15/2019
More
As we begin a series of messages that Pastor Ford hopes will help us get our money right, he has a sobering reminder for those who follow Jesus. As His followers, our main priority ought to be focused only on Him, not on money. The Bible states clearly that we cannot serve the Master and money. We have to have Jesus in a priority position in our lives. The Master has to be first.

8/14/2019

As we look further at the account of the relationship between Isaac and Rebekah in the book of Genesis, Pastor Ford will show us that the story of how God brought them together in the Old Testament is a beautiful picture of the salvation that was to come in the New Testament.

Does Your Date Rate to Mate?, Part 2

8/13/2019
More
As we continue to look at the criteria we need to consider when dating someone, Pastor Ford will remind us that God always wants us to be equally yoked in marriage. So one of the first things to consider about a person who is potentially a mate is whether or not they are a believer. God does not want us to practice missionary dating—when we date someone with the intention of helping them become a believer.

Does Your Date Rate to Mate?, Part 1

8/12/2019
More
We need a list of criteria for dating and mating. We have to be more concerned about a person’s character than we are about their clothes. But while we’re worried about what they’re wearing, we ought to be worried about what’s wearing them. Beause, as Pastor Ford will point out today, they could have expensive clothes and a raggedy character.

More
As we begin a new study in Nehemiah, we’ll learn that we should expect to encounter critics and haters along the way. Pastor Ford will explain that any time there is an opportunity, there will always be opposition. Whenever we step out in faith, we better believe something will come along to make us fear. We need to understand that victory will always be followed by a valley.

More
If we encounter problems in our marriage, we will often blame God for allowing us to marry the wrong person. But Pastor Ford will counter that today by reminding us that we came up with the idea of marrying that person. It was our choice to proceed in the relationship. But now we say, “Why did God allow it?” God didn’t do anything! We did it. We made the decision and the choice. So, why are we blaming God?

According to Pastor Ford, you have to get a divorce from yourself, before you get into a relationship with a potential spouse. There has to be two funerals before there’s one marriage. Each spouse has to die to self! Because marriage is not a 50/50 venture. It requires 100 percent from each person.

Pastor Ford has this question for us today—what makes us want to get out of so quickly the marriage that we wanted to get into so desperately? As we continue to discuss issues that may arise in a marriage, we’ll explore why so many people easily seek a divorce in today’s society, after desparately wanting to be married to their spouse in the beginning of their relationship.

Pastor Ford will remind us today that Jesus died for our salvation and to give us the ability to be able to have a better marriage. He did all that for all of us and for the sins of the world. Pastor Ford will also ask us—since Jesus died for us, then why is it that in our marriages, we can’t seem live for Him and forgive our spouses?

If you married in search of happiness, then you didn’t really understand what marriage is all about. The goal of marriage is oneness. The Bible says, “Therefore, a man will leave his father and mother, cleave to his wife and the two of them will become one flesh.” Oneness is the goal of marriage. Happiness is a by-product. Join us today as we look further at the what happens when a marriage has a case of the “toos”.

Pastor Ford has some encouaraging news to share with us today—even if we’re just cop outs, Christ will give us all a bail out, so we can break out and carry out the purposes He has for our lives, and to use us for His glory. And that’s why scripture tells us that Jesus will supply all of our needs according to His riches in glory!

When a marriage has a case of the “Toos,” one thing that happens is there are too many unmet expectations. And often married people will focus on the “what ifs” of life instead of on the “what is.” And when the “what ifs” takes precedent over the “what is,” then it often leads to disappointment and disillusionment. We’ll begin to look at how to deal with expectations in your marriage on today’s Treasured Truth.

Pastor Ford will remind us today that regardless of what we see going on now, whatever God has promised will happen is going to happen. Regardless of what we feel now, it’s going to happen. Regardless of who gets in our way, or whatever traps the Devil sets, we can always be confident that what God has promised is going to happen.

God Will Always Finish What He Started, Part 1

We can be confident that no matter what happens, God is going to do what He’s said He’s going to do. And we can’t say anything or do anything to change that. No circumstances or anything that the Devil does, should ever persuade us to believe anything other than what God has promised us.

When we are well in our spirit, we are holy. When we are well in our soul, we are happy. And when we are well in our body, we are healthy. Our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit. God wants us to keep our bodies holy, happy and healthy, as we strive to honor Him in every part of our lives, and overcoming the sin of gluttony helps us do that.

Death by Fork, Part 2

7/29/2019

For those of us who struggle with overeating, we’re not able to deal with it as the sin of gluttony, because we don’t look at it that way. We call it a problem, but we’re very hesitant to call it sin. And in our society today we really don’t call anything sin anymore, because it makes things like that more palatable to us, changing them from what God calls them. Pastor Ford will help us re-evaluate our view of overeating and suggest some practical ways to overcome it.

Today Pastor Ford asks a poignant question—do we believe God for our future? If we do, then we should proclaim it! We shouldn’t care what kind of opposition comes our way, we know where we’re going. We know where we’re headed and no one and nothing can stop us from getting there. How can we know for certain? Because God has already told us where we’re going and we know we can trust Him.

Some people don’t eat to live, but they rather live to eat. So today, Pastor Ford will talk about what he calls “death by fork”—or in other words, overeating. And, there’s a Bible word for what we’ll be hearing about today. In scripture, it’s referred to as gluttony. Pastor Ford says that we should tell the truth and shame the Devil, facing facts and admitting that in the Bible overeating is actually the same as the sin called gluttony.
