Stand Alone Sermons
1 Thessalonians 3:6-13 • May 17, 2020 • Pastor Doug L. Nelms Jr.
Pain and isolation often blind us from knowing what to do next. This is true no matter where you are on your spiritual journey. In fact, because of the pain and isolation of the time we are living in, every human system, alliance, government, company, church and family are asking this same question, what do we do next? For some of us, this might even be a daily or perhaps hourly question. For the people in the Bible, it is no different. The narrative, history, poetry, and letters contained within it are from and about people under varying levels of distress. The text we have before us today gives one of the clearest answers to that question. During distance and distress, God’s desire is for you to abound in holiness and love.
Community Of Ambassadors
2 Corinthians 5:20 • February 17, 2019 • Pastor Ralph M. Gordon
What type of church would Renovation be, if each one of us lived with a posture of becoming “All Things To All People” so that we might save some? How would our homes and our communities be different? Our text for today keeps us in Corinth, but in Paul’s 2nd address to the Corinthian church, we get a chance to see how they were reminded of their call and the importance of their COMMUNITY.
