Take Care of Your Body

January 28, 2024 • Pastor Steve Andres • 1 Corinthians 6:12–14, 1 Corinthians 6:18–20, 2 Timothy 2:22, James 5:13–16, Psalm 139:13

On Sunday, Pastor Steve spoke about the significance of taking care of our bodies. He advised us to consider our bodies as temples that are blessings from God! Just as with any other blessing, it is important to be responsible stewards of our bodies. However, many of us may struggle with doing this perfectly. There can be a range of reasons for this, but Pastor Steve highlighted three common reasons in his talk: 1) We are confused. 2) We are coping. 3) We are caught. Listen to this sermon to learn why it is important to rely on the Lord to help us take care of our bodies!

Take Care of Your Mind

During his sermon this Sunday, Pastor Joaquin spoke about the importance of taking care of our minds. He emphasized that God is the source of our strength and that if we turn back to Him, we will be rejuvenated, refreshed, and restored. To achieve this, we need to pray without ceasing and be vigilant in guarding our minds against falsehoods. We must also take every thought captive and bring it under the authority of Christ. By doing so, we can experience a transformation of our minds through God's renewing power. 1) Take care of your mind by going back to what God has said! 2) Take care of your mind by guarding it against lies. 3) Take care of your mind with prayer. 4) Take care of your mind by holding every thought captive.

Take Care of Your Margins

January 7, 2024 • Pastor Steve Andres • Genesis 2:1–2, Psalm 90:12, Hebrews 4:9–10

Are you making the most of every moment? This weekend Pastor Steve started a new series, TAKE CARE, to prepare us to thrive in the new year! Genesis 2:1-2 By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done. 1) Take care of your margins. Time is limited. Everyone gets 1,440 minutes are in a day. Rich or poor, smart or not so smart, we are all given the same time in our day. Psalm 90:12 Teach us to number our days,   that we may gain a heart of wisdom. We don’t spend time, we invest time, and wisdom begins with the understanding that time is limited. 2) Take care of your margins. Time is valuable. Not all moments are created equal. Some moments are much better than others, and we need grace to recognize the moments that matter. "Our greatest fear should not be of failure, but of succeeding at things that don't really matter." D.L. Moody God creates and sets aside a time that is considered holy - the Sabbath. This is our time to rest in the goodness of God’s gift of creation. 3) Take care of your margins. Learn to recognize ENOUGH. We serve a God who, after working, knew how to say, “Enough.” It’s impossible to create margin and space for rest if we aren’t able to say enough: enough striving, enough accumulating, enough accomplishing. 4) Take care of your margins. Rest is a gift.  Sabbath was made for man, not the other way around. Rest is God’s gift to us, so we should steward it well! Hebrews 4:9-10 There remains therefore a Sabbath rest for the people of God. For the one who has entered His rest has himself also rested from his works, as God did from His. Because Jesus did the work we could not and cannot do, we can be free from the need to justify ourselves, and simply rest in his goodness!
