7 I Am's of Christ 05 - I Am the Resurrection and the Life

John 10 - Jesus is the door to a new way of living life. He gives you the ability to have an abundant purpose-filled life here on this earth. He gives you the promise of a life with Him in the world to come. You cannot possess this life without Jesus as your Lord and Savior. He is the only door to this kind of life.


7 I Am's of Christ 02 - Light of the World

John 8 - Jesus is the Light of the World and He gives us the responsibility to be His light in this dark world. We need to be dependent on Him to allow us to act in ways that reflect Him. Reflect Christ in all you do this week and be a light so that people can see your Christ.


7 I Am's of Christ 01 - Bread of Life

John 6 - Bread of life. Christ who was born in Bethlehem (House of Bread) presents Himself as the Bread of Life. A bread that is offered to all who will accept it.

Fruit of the Spirit 09 - Self Control

Galatians 5:22 - You will be controlled this week - by God's spirit or the world's. Self control is deciding you will choose God's ways over your own. It is the power to allow God to be in control. Self control is mandatory for Christian growth. May we each lead a spirit filled life this week.

Fruit of the Spirit 05 - Kindness

Hosea 6 - God desires kindness from his children. Because God has shown us great kindness, we must show kindness to a lost world. The world must know they are valued and that we desire a relationship with them.


Fruit of the Spirit 04 - Patience

James 5:7-11 - God is a God of patience. He designed most of creation to have a long term perspective, not a short term view. God has eternity in view, not just your time on this planet, so trust Him that He is doing what is best for you and His glory. Don't quit, stay faithful until the end.


Fruit of the Spirit 03 - Peace

Philippians 4:11-13 - A life of peace is not a life without difficulty and hardship. A life of peace is focused on a life of surrender and contentment with God. It is a life that realizes God is on the throne and at work in my life. While it may not be the life I planned, it is a life that can show the glory of God to a lost world.


Fruit of the Spirit 02 - Joy

Philippians 4:4 - A life of joy is not dependent upon our situation or circumstances. A Life of joy is centered in Christ and not on problems, people, past or things. It is centered on Christ and allows for a life of contentment regardless of our circumstances. Live a life of joy this week.


2019 Woodbury County Fair Service

Luke 19 - Zacchaeus wanted to see Christ and Christ wanted a relationship with Him. Jesus did not care what people thought, His focus was on someone who wanted to follow Him and He accepted him as he was and God changed his life. Christ will do the same for you if you are willing to follow him. Trust and Follow Him today.


Fruit of the Spirit 01 - Love

Galatians 5:22,23 - Satan tries to get each of us to live our lives driven by fear or hatred. God gives us the ability to live our lives driven by love. It is an action which we can demonstrate. It is sourced in very character and nature of God and that ability is grafted into our lives. As Christians we do not have to live driven by fear, but by love.
