With a culture that increasingly corrupts truth and abandons any sense of morality, it is more important now than ever for Christians to be discerning. But what is spiritual discernment? How does the Bible define it? Join us for part one of our four-part series on discernment as we tackle these important truths and questions!
Pastor Robb gives the next sermon on the Worthy Walk series. He discusses how Jesus prayed for God the Father to gives us unity. And how we are called to preserve this unity within the body of Christ.
Will Sanderson's first sermon with the main congregation at Desert Hills.
Most people will do anything to avoid conflict. As a result, they will seek peace at any price. When any kind of peace is acceptable, truth is cast aside, and true unity is forfeited. The Apostle Paul admonishes us in Ephesians 4:3 to be eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. How do we do this without compromising truth and forefighting the unity that Christ established? Let us prayerfully consider this as we study Ephesians 4:3 together.
Listen to Pastor Robb give a summary of what it's been like for the church to gather through the pandemic and give examples of faithfulness, humility and gentleness in a worthy walk.
Pastor Robb expands on this sermon on gentleness. Part of being a good shepherd is being gentle with the sheep but at the same time protecting them. The shepherd uses a staff in different ways. It's gentle to the sheep but uses it to protect the sheep from the wolves.
God commands us to be anxious for nothing. Most people think of refraining from other sin, but worry is a sin. Most think worrying is ok but all sins are important.
Daren teaches today that all things work together for good and it can bring peace. Let our all powerful God who has never been worried guard our hearts and our minds.
As February comes to a close, I want to remind everyone that our service times are changing beginning next week, March 7! We
will now have three services: 8:15, 10:00, and 11:45. Nursery and children’s ministry will not be available (yet) at the 11:45 service, but adult fellowship groups, Sunday school, and nursery will be available at 8:15 and 10:00. We are excited to see what God has for us as we make this change and seek to follow Him. Please be in prayer for our church family as we experience this time of growth, that Christ would continue to be glorified among us!
As we study Paul’s prayer in Ephesians 3:14-21, we are reminded of the importance of praying for the church and ways we can pray
for the church according to the will of God. While we learn about prayer this morning, we have the opportunity to pray together
tonight. I want to encourage everyone who is able to join us for our February prayer meeting this evening that we might join together to pray for each other before the throne of grace.
As believers we understand that the Holy Spirit dwells within us through faith in Christ, but what does it mean for Christ to be
at home within us? As we continue to study Paul’s prayer in Ephesians 3:14-21, we want to consider what it means that Christ takes up residence within us as His people. We gather this week with joy to worship our worthy King and learn how we can walk in a way that pleases Him.
Strengthened With Power In the Inner Man
January 24, 2021
Riches and power entice the world, and people of the world are willing to do virtually anything to obtain them. As Christians,
however, we have the ability to see the emptiness and vanity of worldly riches and power because we serve a God who is rich in
divine glory and power. He has promised to strengthen us with His power according to His glorious riches, but how can we receive
that promise? We’ll begin to consider that this Lord’s Day as we return to our study of Ephesians. I look forward to our time
together in God’s Word!
