Special Prayer Emphasis: My Community & My Friends

As I write this post, the sun is just coming up and the rain is coming down.  My Facebook timeline is full of Southern Californians warning each other to drive slow in the rain.  That desire to warn each other about slippery roads is part of being made in the image of God.  We, like God, desire to help... to save... to redeem... to protect others.  As we continue this week's prayer emphasis and prayer focus, my hope is that we will do more than just share with our friends the quickest way to work but share with them the only way to heaven. Please join me and our church in praying for our community and our friends.  Pray that God will use us to bring hope and liberty to this community.

Special Prayer Emphasis: Myself and My Family

I am excited about what God has for Liberty Church this month.  Many of you were here Sunday when we started our special prayer emphasis. Each week in January we are praying for a specific need or emphasis.  This past Sunday and this week, we are praying for ourselves and our families.  Would you join me in praying that each of us would be more like Christ in 2017?  Would you join me in praying that each of us has a renewed passion for holiness and God’s Word?  Would you join me in praying that God would use the life change in us to challenge and encourage our families?  My prayer this week is that each of us would be more like Christ and that would spill into our families. Pray daily that God would work in our church this week!  See you Sunday.

A Love for the Family

Apart from my own family relationships, there are few relationships in life as meaningful and potentially productive as that between the pastor and his people. I am so honored to be the pastor of a great church family like Liberty Church. I have always been taught “never use your people to build your own ministry. Use the ministry God has given you to build your people.”

Life is about relationships. The church is the “people business.” I never want to take for granted the people that God has given me to shepherd. Remember, the “Good Shepherd” has given His life for the sheep (John 10:11). Yes, life is all about relationships with one another. To me as a pastor, other than my own family, there is no one else I would rather “do life” with. Thank you Liberty Church for being “family.”

Practical Christianity: A Study through the the Book of James

James is one of the most practical books in the Bible. It tackles the real life issues and struggles that all of us face: temptation, self-control, work, anger, poverty, favoritism, and more.

Not only does the Book of James give straight forward answers, but it also presents fresh challenges to live out our faith in every day life. This book is not for the faint hearted who look for easy answers and pain-free remedies. Get ready to learn how your faith works and grows.

The Value of Women in the Church

In Psalm 68:11, it describes a great company of women as that they brought the good news. What a worthy task for women to be numbered among those who love His Word and take "the good news."

Women have shown themselves indispensable to the church. Just survey any Christian book store and you will find that there are more far more purchases of Bibles and other spiritual resources made by women than men. The ways that women serve in the local church and His Kingdom demand our admiration.

So I, as a local church pastor, say thank you ladies for your passion, your deep reverence for God's Word, and also for living it out in your service for Jesus.

Confident Christian Living

I invite you to join us here at Liberty Church as we continue our series from the Book of First John. This short book was written for four reasons: 

     1. So we may have complete Joy - 1 John 1:4

     2. To learn how to have victory over sin - 1 John 2:1

     3. To protect us from false teachers - 1 John 2:26

     4. To help us learn that a Christian can have a "know-so" salvation - 1 John 5:14

I hope to see you here Sunday mornings at 10am as we look at what it means to live as a confident Christian and avoid the destructive beliefs and behaviors that some Christians have fallen prey to.

Valentine's Day: How Safe is Your Marriage?

Valentine's Day reminds me of love, family and marriage. It also makes me wonder about the safety of marriages among Christian couples. So the question is, how safe is your marriage? The biggest threat to any marriage is not infidelity or miscommunication. The greatest enemy to marriages is ordinary. Ordinary marriages lose hope. Ordinary marriages give into compromise. Ordinary is the belief that this is as good as it will ever get. When we begin to settle for ordinary, it is easy to move from "I do" to "I'm done". Please, as you think of Valentine's Day this year, don't settle in your marriage for ordinary.

Reason for the Season

Christmas time is such a wonderful time of the year. For the christian it is a celebration that is so significant to our faith. So many are just wanting to "get through" rather than enjoying this time to celebrate the coming of our savior. Don't let this Christmas season pass without taking time to worship Christ. He is the reason for the season!

Why Christians Should Vote

Five Reasons Why Christians Should Vote:

 

  1. The Bible tells us to be part of the process. 
    We’re to be salt and light purifying and enlightening the culture.  We’re to make an impact on our culture for good.“Righteousness exalts a Nation”

 

  1. Jesus emphasized to give to Caesar the things that are Caesars.
    By voting we exercise our civic responsibilities guaranteed in a democracy.  We don’t have an Emperor, but a Constitution, which gives us the right to participate in the republic.

 

  1. Because of the Scriptural Conditions that we have.
    Let’s not vote party lines or personalities, but let’s be informed people voting and supporting Biblical principles about life and family values.  I Peter 2:14-15

 

  1. Because Christians should be for the innocent, the indigent and the unborn.  They need a defender and God’s people need to be there.

 

  1. Because Jesus has charged us to carry our faith into the public square.  Therefore we need to pray for our leaders and plead for policy that is undergirded by Scriptural principles.  I Timothy 2:1-2
