Rekindle Romance
Sermon Awaken LoveGod created us for an intimate relationship. The most divine relationship we may ever have with someone on this earth may be found in marriage because marriage allows us to become more like Jesus.
Over time an untended relationship can grow stale. It doesn't have to be that way. You can rekindle the love you had at first. But it takes learning some new habits.

    Fight Fair
    Sermon Awaken LoveEventually every marriage will experience conflict. It is useless to say don't fight. The problem is not the conflict -- it is how the conflict is handled. How you handle the conflict will make all of the difference between whether the conflict kills your marriage or provides opportunity for it to improve. By learning to respond to conflict in an appropriate manner, you can reduce the damage that you cause to the marriage.
    This message is part of a series in conjunction with the movie, The Song.

    Deepening Desire
    Sermon Awaken Love
    As we begin the walk into romance, love and marriage, that walk has its first few steps in attraction. As we initiate that journey it usually begins with a series of three questions that we need to invert from the order we usually ask them. God wants first place in our life, not to be consulted after we have already begun to give our heart to someone else.
    Awaken Love is a message series used in conjunction with the movie, The Song. It is a walk through the love story of the Song of Solomon as he reveals his story of love, marriage, and crisis.

    Go Deeper With Pivotal Circumstances
    Series: Go Deeper
    Sermon Go Deeper
    God desires that our faith in him constantly grow deeper so that we may experience a deepening intimacy with him.
    A fifth means God has of deepening our faith is through pivotal circumstances. As we experience these unplanned, often painful, circumstances, God grows our faith. As we lean on him, we learn that he can be trusted because he understands and has walked painful steps himself.
    As you walk these painful steps, you will need others around you in order to help you get a different perspective and a fresh look at what you are going through.

    Go Deeper with Personal Ministry
    Series: Go Deeper
    Sermon Go Deeper
    God desires a growing sense of intimacy with his people. However, that can only happen through a deepening sense of faith. So God has five tools he uses to deepen our faith.
    The fourth tool God uses to deepen our faith is Personal Ministry ... God opens up an avenue to invest in the kingdom and lives of others that because it is a bit out of comfort zone stretches our faith.
    These faith stretching ministries grow our faith because they ask us to do what we can do, but trust God to do what only He can do.

    Go Deeper with Private Disciplines
    Series: Go Deeper
    Sermon Go Deeper
    God desires to have a relationship of intimacy with His people. However, the only way that can really occur is if there is first a relationship of trust (i.e., faith). So God wants to see our faith in Him deeper, so our connection to Him may become stronger.
    God invites us to utilize the tools of private disciplines to go deeper in faith. These disciplines are private because they are not meant for show. They are meant to help us to lean into God especially in light of some of the things that we struggle in trusting God: our finances, our provisions, and our self-sufficiency.
    Matthew 6 talks to three disciplines that help us to develop that bond of trust: Giving, Prayer, Fasting. As you trust God by participating in these three disciplines, God just may reward your faith (however, the reward may not be what you think).

    Go Deeper with Providential Relationships
    Series: Go Deeper
    Sermon Go Deeper
    God desires that our faith in him grows deeper because the deeper our faith in him the closer the intimacy of relationship with him.
    A second tool God uses to deepen our faith is providential relationships. God uses relationships because they have a spiritual essence, and he can use them to impact our faith. However, relationships can also undermine our faith.
    The key to providential relationships with intentionally placing ourselves in places where God has the opportunity to connect us in lifebuilding relationship, and not one that will corrupt our faith.

    Go Deeper with Practical Teaching
    Series: Go Deeper
    Sermon Go Deeper
    Trust is the foundation for any healthy relationship, and God desires to rebuild our faith/trust/confidence in him. He does that through employing five tools to grow our faith deeper.
    Practical teaching is the first of the five tools God employs to grow our faith. Practical biblical teaching is teaching that is not driven just by content, but also teaching that teaches us what to do with the content ... how it effects our lives and what we are to do about it.
    When we let practical teaching change our behavior we are wise. When we refuse to obey what we are taught we demonstrate that we are unwise.

    After The Candles Are Lit
    Sermon Advent
    Christmas is past. The presents have been unwrapped, but we still find ourselves waiting ... not for the infant king of Bethlehem, but the soon and coming king.
    As we consider the posture of our waiting, we learn at least three things from Anna and Simeon in Luke 2 about the proper way to wait for God to move.
