Remain in the Vine to Bear Fruit that Remains
January 16, 2022 • Bruce Miller
In John 15, Jesus gives us a powerful image of a vine and branches to teach us union with him, an intimacy that leads to effectiveness, to bear much fruit. That result happens as we experience Christ more fully.
Pray for Christ to DWELL in you as his temple
January 9, 2022 • Bruce Miller
There’s a truth that’s been missing for many Christians, even those in church for decades: union with Christ. Union with Christ is the truth that Christ is in you, and you are in Christ. Through the New Testament, you read over and over that we are “in Christ” and “with Christ.” Many have skipped over these simple phrases, but they form the heart of our relationship with God.
4. The Good Shepherd
December 19, 2021 • Bruce Miller
This week Bruce teaches from John chapter to 10 about Jesus’ extended metaphor based on sheep. We will focus on knowing the Good Shepherd and what he does for us, on how we should respond as sheep, and then on the blessings that God has for us.
3. Jesus’ Conversation with the Samaritan Woman at the Well
December 12, 2021 • Bruce Miller
Often, we find ourselves in proximity to someone we don’t know. They might be in line at a restaurant or sitting next to us at a football game. If you’ve never met them, do you talk with them, especially if they’re different? In the Gospel of John chapter four, Jesus found himself in proximity to a woman he had never met, a stranger, who was not Jewish.
Thanksgiving Share Service
November 21, 2021 • Bruce Miller
This is the service where people share what they are thankful for as it pertains to Christ Fellowship.
09. Experiencing Christ’s Service: Greater than circumstances
November 7, 2021 • Bruce Miller
Why are we still here on earth? Why does God leave us here? When you trust Jesus Christ as your Savior, why does God not just transport you immediately to heaven? He has a mission for us here on earth. In the video, Paul calls our attention to two crucial ways we carry out Christ’s mission as we work together for Christ. In Colossians 4 Paul links prayer with evangelism.
08. Experiencing Christ’s Heart in your Family and Work
October 31, 2021 • Bruce Miller
Paul shares with us how we can have Christ-pleasing marriages, families, and jobs. There are no more difficult places to serve Christ than in the privacy of our homes and in the pressure of our jobs.
07. Experiencing Christ’s Clothes
October 24, 2021 • Bruce Miller
Most of us have a hard time getting rid of old sins in our lives that really need to go. When you become a Christian, you become a new person. The Bible says we become Christ’s bride. As a follower of Christ, you need to get rid of your old clothes and put on Christ’s clothes.
06. Experiencing Union with Christ: Greater than Religion
October 17, 2021 • Bruce Miller
In our passage today we will hear Paul tell us: Don’t get distracted by religion. Instead, focus your life on Christ because you are united with Christ. The Colossians were allowing people to intimidate them with their religious practices, experiences, and rules. The same thing happens today.
04 Experiencing Christ’s life: Greater than Sin and Evil
October 3, 2021 • Bruce Miller
Like the Colossians, we’re tempted to look for help outside of Christ. We chase fulfillment. Marketers know this, so products and services offer us the good life, fulfillment, and happiness. And yet this is what Jesus offers. Is he not enough? The answers to an empty life, a guilty conscience, and a fearful mind are found in Colossians.
03. Experience the Glorious Riches of Knowing Christ Fully
September 26, 2021 • Bruce Miller
The Apostle Paul found a treasure worth working hard for, true riches, a life of purpose and passion that gave him joy. You can find life’s purpose in Colossians.
02. Experiencing Christ's Supremacy
September 19, 2021 • Bruce Miller
Recognizing Christ’s supremacy should make a dramatic difference in our lives. Imagine if rather than being a part of your life Jesus is the whole of your life. Imagine if rather than being one thing in your life, Christ is everything in your life. Imagine if rather than being important in your life, Christ is supreme over your whole life, every aspect and dimension.
01. Experiencing Christ's Kingdom
September 12, 2021 • Bruce Miller • Colossians 1:1
As Christians, we are incorporated into Christ’s life and mission. Christ is in us, and we are in him. Today we experience his kingdom as his will is done in our lives. And this union with Christ gives us love, peace, and freedom.
4. The Idol of Sex
August 29, 2021 • Bruce Miller
A good way of thinking through a topic biblically is to look at it through the progress of God’s work from beginning to end, through four major phases: Creation, Fall, Redemption, and New Creation. A close look at the biblical progress of revelation gives you insights into sexuality’s proper place in your life.
3. The Idol of Addiction
August 22, 2021 • Bruce Miller
Addiction to substances trusts in the bottle or the pills to satisfy us, to comfort us, to give us peace, to make us happy, to cope with stress and pain. And yet only God can give us true joy and deep contentment.
