Sanctified Wholly by the God of Peace

11/30/2021
Writing to the Thessalonians, Paul prayed that the God of peace may wholly sanctify us upon Christ's return, and until then that He would watch over us and preserve us. We are not sinless; the flesh is at war with the Spirit, and there is the possibility we will succumb to temptation, but when we take a step back to God, He is quick to meet us. The finishing process will not be completed in our lifetimes, but those who come to know God and His ways and who keep faithing in Him are being...

God Takes Care of His Own

11/29/2021
When we're walking around saying, why is this happening? Why do the wicked prosper and those who love the Lord suffer so much? Psalm 37 reminds us how to make it through the tough times. Our suffering doesn't go unnoticed. God sees, He knows, and He upholds those who love Him. Fourteen years of ministry and the wisdom of David in his old age show us that God takes care of His own.

Whole in God's Presence

11/26/2021
Christ's work at the cross is not just one-dimensional. Its effects are continuous, encompassing the whole sum total of what is needed for us to be whole in His presence: both salvation from our sins past, present and future, and healing of our sicknesses and diseases. 1 Peter 2:24-25 Watch, Listen and Learn 24x7 at PastorMelissaScott.com Pastor Melissa Scott teaches from Faith Center in Glendale.

Kept in God's Grace

11/25/2021
The book of Jude is a wake-up call to those on the brink of apostasy or exposed abundantly to it. Don't let the opportunities of God be treated with complacency. The saints of God are kept ones in Christ; He is able to keep us and present us faultless. Even if you are on the brink, keep yourself in the love of God. Don't let another day pass without thanking God for His grace, His mercy, and His love. Jude 1:1-25 Watch, Listen and Learn 24x7 at PastorMelissaScott.com Pastor Melissa Scott...

The Freedom That Comes Through Forgiveness

11/24/2021
Jesus instructs us to forgive and gives the roadmap to follow. It is a process of letting go of the garbage of hurts against you that block the pathway of communication between you and God. When the love of God is in us, we find ourselves asking Him to have mercy on those who have wronged us. Cleaning the pathway of communication through prayer and faith brings the freedom that makes us overcomers instead of victims.

Humility: Christ Speaks to the Lowly in Heart

11/23/2021
Humility is not self-abasing, it is not an act that feeds the self, it is lowliness and takes service as the highest incentive to action. Saul lost his humility as a leader and became unusable to God because of his attitude, whereas David had a heart open to receive correction when he was confronted with his sin. A humble perspective puts things in proper order; even the lowly things have a place in God's order. VF-2133 Watch, Listen and Learn 24x7 at PastorMelissaScott.com Pastor Melissa...

The Help of The Holy Spirit: You Are Not Alone

11/22/2021
The Holy Spirit helps us in our human condition of weakness when we don't even know "the what" we need and should ask for in prayer. When we face a circumstance, we cannot even find the words for, the Spirit understands our groanings. He helps us lift the load and carry our prayer to the Father, who knows our hearts, and Christ, who advocates for us.

Agape: The Expression of the Holy Spirit

11/19/2021
Paul makes four categories of mankind: the natural man, babes in Christ, carnal believers, and spiritual Christians. The natural man cannot hear the message; the babe in Christ grows, feeding on the sincere milk of the Word; carnal believers are never confronted with facing themselves, leaving them in a state of arrested spiritual development; and spiritual Christians constantly feed on the Word, both milk and meat. Some marks of carnality are envying, strife, and divisions, which are in...

Love and Unity in the Diversity of Spiritual Gifts

11/18/2021
Like those in Corinth, many churches today have elevated spiritual gifts, especially speaking in tongues, as the mark of salvation causing contention and disunity in the body. Paul corrects this by clarifying that there are diversities of gifts, distributed by the Holy Spirit for the edifying of the church. Some, not all, have particular gifts, including speaking in tongues. All His children have some gift for the building up of the body. The greatest gift is the love He poured out on our...

The Pursuit of Peace and the Holiness of God

11/17/2021
Part of understanding the holiness of God is being aware that He has placed a deposit of His peace in our hearts, which gives us the capacity to pursue peace with all. This awareness allows us to get real with God and keeps us from falling away from the faith.

God's Perfect Love Conquers Fear

11/16/2021
God's love toward us comes before we can love Him. When we do love Him, it is impossible to not simultaneously love our brethren. This agapao love, in being completed, makes us bold and drives out fear. With God's love in us, we will get tested to bring us closer to God and His care, but we will not receive punishment from God.

Comfort from Christ: The Motherly Love of God

11/15/2021
God’s motherly love shines through in a bleak passage directed against the hypocritical scribes and Pharisees. Knowing what the word of God said, they were unable to apply it to themselves or hear the call of God. God is still calling, as a mother hen, to bring comfort to the comfortless that will run to the voice of the sayer.

Chosen, Set Apart, and Loved

11/12/2021
Christ has broken down the barriers of the old dispensation, so now we have to learn to function as a society, in Christ. We are chosen, separated, and loved by God, so we must act like it. Paul tells us to clothe ourselves in the attributes that come from God: compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and longsuffering. Only then can we put up with one another and be a cohesive body of believers in Christ. VF-2301 Colossians 3:12-13 Watch, Listen and Learn 24x7 at...

Why on Earth Does God Forgive?

11/11/2021
Through Nehemiah 9:26-31 and Psalm 106 we have a mirror to show us the wickedness of fallen man and our own sinning ways. Why then, if God knows and sees all this, does He forgive? For His name's sake. He is still saving people today for simple faith in the name of Jesus Christ.

The Love of God

11/10/2021
"The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand." First, a look at what the all things are, and then into three vignettes of God's love as seen in Christ: to the woman at the well, the woman taken in adultery and the post-betrayal Apostle Peter. With this we learn: the all things in Christ's hand funnel into the love of God and we have access to both by reaching for His hand by faith.

A Right Understanding of Love

11/9/2021
Love is the most abused four-letter word, especially in today's church world. The focus in this teaching is that the love of God is a gift to us for our faith as we abide in His word. We cannot manufacture that love, only God can place it within us.

The Love that Tethers Us to God

The unconditional agape love that comes from God is not like human love; it is the fruit of the Spirit of God in us, not something we can do in the flesh.

Christian Unity: Knit Together in God’s Love

11/5/2021
The body of Christ is supposed to be knit together in love, not ripped apart. Without being knit together in Christ’s love, the church cannot survive. Paul addressed the Colossians with pastoral concern, reminding them to focus back on Christ and to be knit together in the agape love of God. When the problems come, this love of God through Christ should be our common bond. Christ is the unifying force.

Holy and Blameless Before Him in Love

11/4/2021
We don't find God; He chose us form among those He didn’t choose before the world was formed. The purpose of the choice is that we could be holy and without blame when we finally come before Him in love. Becoming holy and blameless before Him is not a change we make in ourselves. He makes that change in us for our faith. VF-2204 Ephesians 1:4 Watch, Listen and Learn 24x7 at PastorMelissaScott.com Pastor Melissa Scott teaches from Faith Center in Glendale.

Commitment: God's Work in You Produces the Ability to Respond

11/3/2021
Commitment begins first and foremost with the activity of God in prevenient Grace. Our Act is then one of presenting ourselves on the Basis of the mercies of God. The Character of commitment is all hinged on our understanding of what the Lord has done in making us new creatures in Christ. The Demands of commitment are that we are not to be conformed to (taking the imprint of) the world, but transformed (metamorphosed) by the renewing of our minds. Our minds are renewed by reading and...
