Living with Purpose • January 19, 2020 • Bryan Fojtasek
Jesus sets us an example of humility (attitude) and service (action) that every disciple should follow. 1 Peter 4:10 (NLT) “God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another.” 1. Jesus shows us the importance of humility. 2. Serving is a practical demonstration of God's love. 3. We have the ability and responsibility to share God's love through acts of service. Application: 1. Make We > Me 2. Practice Show and Tell 3. WestsideLife.org/Volunteer
Becoming More Like Jesus • January 12, 2020 • Bryan Fojtasek
Part two of our series "Living With Purpose." God loves you just the way you are, but he doesn't want you to stay that way. Instead, he wants you to grow into a better reflect of Jesus Christ. And through his power and promises, he's given us everything we need to live a godly life. Main passages: Matthew 23:25-26, Ephesians 4:22-24, 2 Peter 1:2-9.
Living in Community • January 5, 2020 • Bryan Fojtasek
God designed us to live in community with our fellow believers because a healthy Christian community lays the foundation for personal and spiritual growth, and it protects us from the Devil’s number one attack against Christians: isolation.
