Growing Under Grace

  • Growing Under Grace – Is a teaching about God’s amazing grace, and how we were so far away from God until he extended his grace and mercy towards us. God being gracious and merciful is a part of who God is, and when he sent his Son into the world, he filled our Lord with all grace and wisdom so Christ would be gracious and merciful to us. We must take the time God grants us to grow our faith, and not continue to cover ourselves in sin. God has giving us an amazing opportunity to grow under his grace, we can’t waste the grace the Lord has given us. Let us grow and mature under the Grace of God while we have time. His Grace is an amazing experience, no amount of money can buy it.

Be Courageous

  • Be Courageous – this is a teaching about how you and I need to be courageous for the Lord as we work on our salvation, growing into maturity as the Lord changes things in our lives. Where this world is heading there will be less and less people truly seeking and walking according to God’s Word. The Lord needs bold and courageous servants who will carry out his will, and not a servant who is concerned about their livelihood. The Lord needs courageous soldiers who will stand up for his spoken word. Let us humble ourselves before the mighty power of God so he will strengthen us so we can be bold and courageous for him.

Don’t Give Up

  • Don’t Give Up – Is a teaching about how we need to grow our faith in a way that no matter what comes we will not give up, we will not turn from God. God’s Word teaches us that our faith will be tested, that we have to show ourselves approved. We all will undergo testing, our faith will be challenged to determine if we are standing on the rock of Christ Jesus. We must grow, we can’t give up. God wants all of us to be saved. The Father sent his Son to make a way, so we can be encouraged even in our darkest moments. God won’t give up on us, and we can’t give up on God.

Putting God First

  • Putting God First - This teaching is about always putting God first in our lives. Even when life and relationships press against us, we still need to have faith to put God first. It doesn’t matter the reason we are not putting God first, he requires and demands that we come to him first in all situations and circumstance; before we listen to ourselves or others. We all have to see how we consistently put things before God, we do it every day. We cannot live outside of God’s Will as Christians, therefore we need to be discipline in our faith and inquire of God all the time, bringing everything before him, so he will bless us.

Who’s Driving

  • Who’s Driving – this teaching is about looking at our lives and determining who is really driving, even though we are Christians. The question is, are you still driving or have you fully surrendered yourself to Christ. Who is in control of your desires, motives, thinking, plans, your tongue, and what you do with your body? Is it You or God? This is so important to our spiritual grow, because we cannot grow if we are still in control, and have not surrender control to God. If we are still in control, there won’t be much difference between us and those of the world.

Sustainable Faith

  • Sustainable Faith – this teaching is about how we need to grow and stop taking time off from God the Father and Christ Jesus. Many of us tend to disconnect from our faith based on what we are going through, this gives the devil an opportunity to attack us. We need to increase our faith where it reaches a level where it sustains us all day and night. When there are no breaks in our faith, we won’t go through the struggle of disconnecting and reconnecting with Christ based on what’s going on in our lives. If we can sustain our faith in God, he will sustain us, be a shield to us, and allow us to walk in his presence.

God Is With Us

  • God is With Us – This teaching is to encourage those seeking God to continue working on your salvation. Christ Jesus told us that in this world we are going to have trouble, but take heart he has overcome the world. If we remain faithful, we can have confidence that God is with us all the way to the end. He is there for us through all life troubles. We don’t have to be afraid, we don’t have to shrink back, and we don’t have to transgress against God. We can have faith that God is faithful to those who love him, who believe in his Son, who trust in him, who receive his Spirit, and who obey his Word and Ways.

Being Changed

  • Being Changed – Is a teaching about not looking for others to change first, but letting the Holy Spirit show us what God’s wants to change about us. This is not an easy step in growing our faith. We tend not want to examine ourselves, but examine others. But for us to grow in the Lord, we must allow the change that is needed in our lives to take place, allowing the Spirit to change any and everything that needs changing. It could be our talk, our walk, our behavior. or the way we act. We must welcome the changing power of God into our lives so we can grow in Christ Jesus.

Truly Devoted

  • Truly Devoted – This is a teaching to encourage each believer to become more devoted to God. There are a lot of things in this world and in our personal lives that can keep us from being fully devoted to God. But if you and I desire to receive blessings and God’s promises then we have to live a devoted life to God, there is no other option. God requires that we devoted ourselves to him, and to serve Him only! We know how to devote ourselves to things of the world, now it’s time to use that same effort in our devotion to God.

Not My Will, But Yours

  • Not My Will, But Yours – Is a teaching about coming to recognize the difference between God’s Will and ours. Especially after we have become a Christian and start serving the Lord, we can make the mistake that whatever we think or do is God’ Will. But we can only come to know God’s Will by him revealing it to us, therefore we need to keep seeking his will in every walk of our faith and journey in becoming a mature Christian. We need to have the same attitude as Christ, not my will Father, but yours.

Walking In Darkness

  • Walking In Darkness – This is about how God’s uses darkness to bring things to light. He uses darkness to teach us about sin, ourselves, and the cares of the world. I know this is a subject most would like to skip over, and assume that because we accepted Christ, we go to church, and we pay offering darkness is not present in us. But that is not the case, God’s Word teaches us how to walk in the light of Christ Jesus so we are no longer walking in any parts of darkness. We must examine ourselves and grow our faith to fully walk in the light of Christ, where there is no traces of darkness in us at all.

God Is One

God Is One – Is a teaching about how we see God. There are many theories about God being one, some are based on scripture, while others are modification of scripture to promote their doctrine understanding of God. But if we take God’s Word as the only truth, then we would see that God is the creator of all things, therefore all things are of God. Sense all things are of God, then you and I being received by the Father through his Son Christ Jesus through reconciliation which took a way the veil of sin that separated us from God, can be one with him. Through our acceptance and obedience to Christ Jesus we who believe and love God, can be one with the Father and the Son

God’s Loving Character

  • God’s Loving Character – Is a teaching about working with the Holy Spirit to look at our character and nature to ensure we are growing and changing into the image of Christ Jesus. Without this transformation, our nature will continue to cause us to suffer while we are seeking God. Taking on the loving character of God will ensure we reach maturity in Christ Jesus by growing us and our faith. God’s loving character that is in Christ Jesus, must also be in us. The light of Christ must shine through us, so not only are we changed, but others will see and notice how much our character is like that of Christ Jesus

Keeping The Story Straight

  • Keeping The Story Straight – Is about how the Power of God is founded in what God spoke, wrote, and revealed through Christ Jesus. If we decide to add, modify, or delete anything from God’s Word then we are impacting the Power of God to be effective in our lives. If we add made-up stories to God’s Word, then we nullify its power to transform us into the image of Christ Jesus. We must keep God’s Word straight, so it can have impact on lives that are yet to come. Keeping God’s Word straight requires that we change, not that we change God’s Word to suite our desires and passion. We need to keep God’s Word just as it was given, so many can be saved, and the Power of God can still be effective today

God’s Protection

  • God’s Protection – is about learning how to live under God’s protection. One of the things that happens once we become a Christian is, we assume we are automatically put under God’s protection. But if we look into scripture it would become clear that we must seek God’s protection so we are shielded from the arrows of the devil, and our enemies. God’s does not extend his protection so we can keep on sinning, but to give us time to overcome our sin, and become more faithful and obedient to God.

Nothing Is Impossible For God

  • Nothing Is Impossible With God – it’s about each one of us learning that there is nothing impossible for God. While we like to believe within ourselves, yet many things are impossible for us. We must recognize our limitations, there are many things we cannot achieve within ourselves. We must learn to trust and have faith in God the Father through Christ Jesus, it’s the only way we can make it and overcome our troubles. While there are many things impossible for mankind, nothing is too hard for God, nothing is impossible for the Lord. If we place all our hope in him, if we place our very lives in his hand, and seek him, then we will see that through Christ Jesus there is nothing we cannot do through him according to God’s Will

The Race

  • The Race – whether we want to admit it or not, we are all in a race. Some of us are running to obtain everything we can in this world, hoping when it’s all said and done we will find joy and happiness. While others of us have come to understand that running a race to achieve things of this world could never bring us the peace, joy, and love we seek. We need to think about the race we are running to ensure everything we do is preparing us to run our race so it leads to God. We can’t waste time running our race hoping towards the end we can jump over and start running a race for God, we won’t make it in this way. We need God to prepare us for the race he has marked out for us, we need to run the race his way, all the way to the end.

Prepared By God

  • Prepared By God – is a teaching about letting God prepare us for the reason we were created. We have spent enough time in this world trying to prepare ourselves, trying to make a way for ourselves, it’s time to give ourselves over to God and let him prepare us for his calling. Only by being prepared by God will we be satisfied and not be in want, not desiring to chase after this world. Being prepared by God will change everything about us, it is the Lord who equips us and prepares us so what we do brings God glory.

God’s Will

  • God’s Will – This teaching is about learning to walk in God’s Will. Many of us believe we have a relationship with Christ Jesus, but we must ask ourselves the question, are we walking in God’s Will? It’s only by us following God’s Will can we achieve our purpose through Christ Jesus for our lives. God’s Will requires that we live a certain way, that we act a certain way, and that we obey his word in following his Son Christ Jesus. Do you know God’s Will for your life or you seeking his will, or are you just asking God to bless your will and plan?

No Time For God

  • No Time For God – Busy, busy …. We are all so busy, so we look for ways to shorten our time with God. We want the church service to be short, our prayers are short, our time studying God’s Word is short or none existing. We are too busy to spend time with God. God honors those who seek him, those who spend much time in prayer, and those who studies his Word. But for those who don’t have time for God, be assured God won’t have time for you. God’s Word is filled with scriptures teaching us about how we need to continuously seek the Lord so we can find him, so in our time of need, the Lord will answer our prayers. This requires you and I to spend a lot of time with God.
