The apostle Paul says in Colossians 3:2, "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters." That's a fun passage to apply if you're at your dream job, but what if you hate my job? How do you work with “ALL your heart” at a job you dread going to each day? Why should you bring you A-game to a job that is just a stepping-stone to what you really want to do? And why does Jesus even care?
Monday Morning Faith (Pt.4) When Faith and Work Collide

Monday Morning Faith (Pt.6) - Pick a Team!
Colossians 4:7-18 • August 20, 2017 • Pastor Segun "Shegz" Aiyegbusi
In this verbal group photograph (Colossians 4:7-18), we learn an important Biblical truth (which also happens to be our big idea): If you are a follower of Jesus Christ, GOD HAS CALLED YOU TO BE A TEAM PLAYER, NOT A SPECTATOR. Sitting around DOING NOTHING waiting for the rapture for Jesus to come take you home IS NOT GOD’S PLAN FOR YOU! He rescued us from sin and equipped us with abilities and gifts so that we can advance His kingdom on earth through the Church.
Monday Morning Faith (Pt.5) - Pray Till You Get a Win!
Colossians 4:2-6 • August 13, 2017 • Pastor Segun "Shegz" Aiyegbusi
Jeremiah Lanphier (1857) was no different than you. He was regular Christian who probably sat in the back section of the Church, but who believed that God could and would do great things beyond his ability if he would simply just pray! Find out in this sermon how his life can inspire you to start praying!
Monday Morning Faith (Pt.3) - When the Missions Field is your Home
Colossians 3:17-21 • July 30, 2017 • Pastor Segun "Shegz" Aiyegbusi
It seems backwards, but one of the toughest missions field where Christians often fail to imitate Jesus Christ is at home. That’s because few people know the real-you like your family does. No matter what face we present to the public, when we get home, our guards are down the true condition of our hearts is on full display. It’s for this reason that Paul writes in Colossians 3:17, “Whatever you do”, (and I would add), “wherever you are” do all things in the name of Jesus; and then directs very specific instructions to individuals in the family unity.
