sowing and reaping

When we sow into the Kingdom of God, we do it not for what we will get in return, but because of the eternal value of the impact that seed will make is so much bigger than this world or this life. 

five: contribution

five: contribution

Contribution understands that everybody has a role, and there is room for us here. We know that the gifts we are given matter to the body of Christ, and we so seek to discover where we each fit. 

We honor the contributions of others, knowing that God perfectly crafted each one of us, and only together are we truly the church.

#6 Indifference

series: Thawing

title: indifference

teacher: Jacob Bender

date: February 12, 2017

scriptures: Revelation 3:14-20, Ezekiel 16:49, Matthew 25:45-46, Luke 16, Deuteronomy 27:19, Ephesians 6, 1 John 3:18

Jesus says to the church in Laodicea - "would that you be hot or cold... but because you are lukewarm, I will spit you out of my mouth!" -Revelation 3:15-16.

 Most of us growing up being taught: You should be one or the other… and we associate hot or cold as being GOOD or BAD… and the teaching is typically that being lukewarm means you are somewhere in the middle of good and bad... and with THAT framework we hear Jesus saying: you are lukewarm and because of that I will spit you out of my mouth! and That leaves people thinking that Jesus would rather a person flat out deny him… not serve him at all, than to serve him, we could say: “half heartedly” - but what does that even mean?
