This morning we are continuing our journey together into the Good Life as described to us by God.
How many of you have taken a personality profile? I’m talking about DISC, or MyersBriggs, Enneagram, 5 Factor Test, or something similar? Here’s one test considered the most *scientific: Which Looney Tunes Character Are You? .Maybe you’re like Bugs Bunny? *Confident, Clever, you love to be the center of attention. Maybe you’re like Elmer Fudd? You’re not the brightest candle on the table but you’re persistent, hard-working, and you’ve at *least got a sense of humor. .Daffy Duck could more be your type? A bit opinionated and *forward, but you roll with it. How about Pepe Le Pew? Helplessly romantic, always looking for true love, sensitive and you smell good…most of the time. Interestingly, though there all these personality tests out there, Nathan says he has never seen one designed to test our character; your degree of honesty, morality, and integrity. As Dr. King dreamed, one day people would be judged more by the content of their character than the color of their skin. So today *we’ll find that part of the Good Life God offers us includes living .a life of character
This is the alternate sermon due to the snow day in The Good Life series on the topic of Your Kingdom Come.
This morning we will embarking on a bit of a journey together and that journey will be The Good Life. The Good Life is for all kinds of people and groups, but there is not much agreement on what it is. So the question is, "What is The Good Life?"
We are continuing a series call The Generous Heart - "Learning What Giving is all About".
This morning we are starting a short series of topics we're calling The Generous Heart. We are taught as Christians that not only do things have a function but humans as well are to function as specified by our Creator. The premise is that when we function as we are designed we do well. We flourish. When we don't, we won't. And may even do damange. So today we'll see that the generous heart grows their world larger.
This is such a unique Sunday, having New Year's Day fall on our regular day for worship. It gives us an oppourtunity to start out the New Year right, by celebratory worship to God and in fellowship with one another. I feel it's so very important for many of us that we see in this day... hope for the new year
This month we have been talking about the heart coming home. This week we talk about the heart coming home to love.
We are continuing a series entitled "The Heart Has a Home". Things that you expect at home and things that make a home a home.
Luke 2:8-12 (NLT) That night there were shepherds staying in the fields nearby, guarding their flocks of sheep. Suddenly, an angel of the Lord appeared among them, and the radiance of the Lord’s glory surrounded them. They were terrified, but the angel reassured them. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people. The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David! And you will recognize him by this sign: You will find a baby wrapped snugly in strips of cloth, lying in a manger.” Good news- Jesus was what they were waiting and also more than they expected.
Picking up from last weeks theme we continue on with out series and advent. Today we focus about the heart coming home to peace.
