Healing God - Week 33 - Mark 8:22-30

Healing God - Week 33 - Mark 8:22-30

Healing God (1280x720).jpg

There is an already and a not yet of the gospel. Jesus lived a perfect life in the place of your imperfection, died a sinners death that we deserved, and rose to life securing new life and forgiveness of sin and the confidence of spending eternity with Christ forever. And here we are; having the work of Christ already accomplished on our behalf, and yet we are wrestling with the sin and struggles in our lives. And in the midst of the our pain and struggle, Jesus is the Christ, and he alone has the power to clean our mess.

His Reality / Our Response: Week 3: Remade for Multiplication

5-Core-Values-Slide-Primary.jpg

The church is called to discipleship and discipleship is all about multiplication; more people meeting Jesus and learning how to trust and follow Jesus, so that more people can meet Jesus and trust and follow Him too.

But is that happening? If not, why not?

This sermon presents some common reasons why many Christians struggle with discipling others.

His Reality / Our Response: Week 1: Reformed Theology (The Five Solas)

5-Core-Values-Slide-Primary.jpg

Pastor Rob takes us back to the roots of Protestant Reformation with a message discussing the First Core Value of Gospel Life Church: Reformed Theology - The Five Solas: Sola Scriptura (Scripture alone), Sola Gratia (grace alone), Sola Fide (faith alone), Solus Christus (Christ alone), and Soli Deo Gloria (the glory of God alone) and why they are relevant not only to Gospel Life Church, but to us in our own faith.

The Theology of Work

The Theology of Work - Dr. Greg Gresset

090218 The Theology of Work_Greg Gresset (1280x720).jpg

The topic of work often produces one of two reactions: dread or joy. Let's face it, we either love our jobs or we are generally unhappy with them. We see work as this necessary evil, one that we derive little meaning from. There is meaning, the Gospel is gives it meaning; and a Gospel attitude foremost gives Christ the glory and second, purpose to the mundane.

Creating a Culture of HOSPITALITY

Creating a Culture of Hospitality

081918 Week 5_Gospel Shaped Life_HOSPITALITY (1280x720).jpg

We all have an idea in our minds as what hospitality is and looks like. How does the Bible define hospitality? Very simply, love for strangers. It sounds much easier than it is, opening our homes and our lives to the strangers in our own communities, to show them the love that Christ has for them.

The Gospel Shaped Life - Creating a Culture of HONESTY & ACCEPTANCE

The Gospel Shaped Life - Creating a Culture of HONESTY & ACCEPTANCE

080518 Week 3_Gospel Shaped Life_HONESTY (1280x720).jpg

It is not our perfection that displays the glory of Christ to the world around us. But, our loving acceptance and forgiveness of the imperfections of others towards us; because, the perfect one Jesus has forgiven all of us all of our sins against Him. Enabling us to be free to forgive others when they sin against us, by the power of the Holy Spirit; but, if anyone does sin we have an advocate with the Father in Jesus Christ the righteous, He is the propitiation for our sins.

The Gospel Shaped Life - Creating a Culture of HUMILITY

THE GOSPEL SHAPED LIFE: CREATING A CULTURE OF HUMILITY

072918 Week 2_Gospel Shaped Life_HUMILITY (1280x720).jpg

Scripture Passage - Philippians 2:3-11

"Self" is the greatest barrier to living the gospel shaped life and fully displaying God's glory. 

To live a gospel shaped life of humility we must 1) understand who we are in Christ - Saint! and 2) understand who others are - their worth, value, and beauty. 

Living a gospel shaped life of humility is rooted in the redemptive work of Jesus Christ who came down low to seek, save, and humbly serve those who would deny "self" and follow Him. It is only through His truth and His grace that we receive the power of the Holy Spirit to live out the gospel and view others as more important than ourselves.

The Gospel Shaped Life - Creating a Culture of HOPE

THE GOSPEL SHAPED LIFE: CREATING A CULTURE OF HOPE

072218 Week 1_Gospel Shaped Life_HOPE (1280x720).jpg

To have Gospel Doctrine without Gospel Culture is hypocrisy. To have Gospel Culture without Gospel Doctrine is fragility. To have Gospel Doctrine AND Gospel Culture is to have POWER!

Biblical hope is a rock-solid conviction of faith in the future promises of God, a steadfast anchor in an unchangeable and immovable Almighty God. What is your source of life and hope? Is it the Word of God? What is your greatest hope? Is it to see King Jesus face to face in all of His glory? How do you create a culture of hope? By remembering to preach the truth of gospel to yourself daily AND by reminding others of His promises and helping them connect the transformational power of the gospel to their everyday life.

Being a follower of Christ is not easy, and the Bible never makes that claim. If we want to endure we need to one, recognize that there is difficulty coming; and two, we have to put our hearts in the right place. So be encouraged as Dr. Paul Dean shares stories from the Bible as well as his own experience of God's provision and faithfulness.

Sending Savior - Week 32 - Mark 8:14-21

When we focus on the physical we’re going to miss the spiritual. Far too often we are so focused on our physical wants or needs that we forget God’s providence in the current and the past.  And in those situations, God has given us stories to reference His faithfulness when physical circumstances get tough.

As adults we take pride in our independence and in our ability to do life on our own. Unfortunately, this same pride makes us proud before God and we find it rather easy to do life apart from Him. Jesus offers another way; the way of humility and dependence and complete reliance upon a Good Father who loves us very much.

There are no accidents. God's timing and presentation are always perfect and always personal. Jesus gives you exactly what you need, when you need it. Because he knows you intimately; loves you deeply, and wants to experience the joy of his salvation more than you ever will.
