You Choose Sunday: Week 2

Jeff and Sabrina Maness – November 5th, 2017

You Choose Sunday 11-12-17

1.  I think about the past A LOT, and it sometimes gets in the way of my time with God.  How do I stop thinking about my past and more into the future?

“The devil knows your name but calls you by your sin. God knows your sin but calls you by your name.”  Craig Groeschel

 Philippians 3:12-14 12 I don’t mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me. 13 No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.

2. I try to read the Bible and use prayer; I really try to be better, but I keep falling back into the same sins repeatedly. What else do I need to do to change?

Philippians 2:12b-13  Work hard to show the results of your salvation, obeying God with deep reverence and fear. 13 For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him.

1 John 3:9  Those who have been born into God’s family (saved) do not make a practice of sinning, because God’s life is in them.  So they can’t keep on sinning, because they are children of God.

Hebrews 10:26-27  26 Dear friends, if we deliberately continue sinning after we have received knowledge of the truth, there is no longer any sacrifice that will cover these sins.  27 There is only the terrible expectation of God’s judgment and the raging fire that will consume his enemies.

3. What is the baptism of the Holy Spirit?  Why do you not preach about the baptism of the Holy Spirit?   

 John 20:22  22 Then he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit.

 Acts 4:13 13 The members of the council were amazed when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, for they could see that they were ordinary men with no special training in the Scriptures. They also recognized them as men who had been with Jesus.

4. What is the prayer language that comes with the baptism of the Holy Spirit?  What are the gifts of the Spirit and what do they mean?

 Acts 2:4  And everyone present was filled with the Holy Spirit and began speaking in other languages (tongues), as the Holy Spirit gave them this ability. 

Acts 2:7-8  They were completely amazed. “How can this be?” they exclaimed. “These people are all from Galilee, and yet we hear them speaking in our own native languages!

1 Corinthians 14:18-19  18 I thank God that I speak in tongues more than any of you. 19 But in a church meeting I would rather speak five understandable words to help others than ten thousand words in an unknown language.

5. How does the church feel about transgender people and those who are in the LBGT community?

Walk This Way: I Want To Be Like Paul

Week 6 – Jeff Maness – October 29th, 2017 At some point in our life, all of us have someone we look up to so much that we say, “I want to be like them.” Spiritually speaking, we usually only say that about Jesus. So is it ok to ever want to be or try… Continue Reading

Walk This Way: Suffering

Walk This Way: Suffering

Week 5 – Jeff Maness – October 22nd, 2017 Suffering might be inevitable, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible to overcome. Jesus, in His suffering, offered to us the ultimate example of how to respond. In fact, it’s my response to suffering that is much more important than my protection from it.   Walk This… Continue Reading

Walk This Way: Past

Walk This Way: Past

Week 4 – Jeff Maness – October 15th, 2017 So often we find ourselves believing the lie that because of what I’ve done, Jesus must be done with me. If that were the case then just about every Bible hero we’ve grown to love would be disqualified from being used by God. The reality is,… Continue Reading

Week 3 – Jeff Maness – Oct. 8th, 2017 What was Jesus all about and ultimately what should His Church be about? When He announced Himself as the Messiah He did not announce judgment or wrath, but love, mercy, grace and forgiveness. It’s not that He never taught on judgement but He wasn’t going to… Continue Reading

Walk This Way: Baptism

Walk This Way: Baptism

Week 2 – Jeff Maness – October 1st, 2017 What’s The Big Deal About Baptism? Baptism is a big deal but it’s not the biggest deal in our faith. While we believe it is significant, we do not believe that it is necessary for salvation. So if it’s not necessary, why should we be baptized… Continue Reading

Walk This Way: Desperate

Walk This Way: Desperate

Week 1 – Jeff Maness – September 24th, 2017 Faith provides so much more than forgiveness, being filled with power or the hope of our future in Heaven. Faith does provide those things for us but it should produce some things in us as well. In this message, Pastor Jeff teaches us what true faith… Continue Reading

Mere Attendance is Insufficient

Mere Attendance is Insufficient

Andy Hazelet – September 17th, 2017   Big Idea:  Attending church, without connecting into it, misses the point.   Big Question:  Why should I connect in the church?   Main Scripture:  Acts 2:42-47 1. Connection produces Reinforcement.   “All the believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, and to fellowship, and to sharing in meals… Continue Reading

Clarity in Uncertain Times

Jeff Maness – September 10th, 2017 Clarity In Uncertain Times Big Idea: In times of uncertainty it’s clarity that we need.   1 Samuel 14:6   Jeremiah 20:7 O Lord, you misled me, and I allowed myself to be misled. You are stronger than I am, and you overpowered me. Now I am mocked every… Continue Reading
