I find myself increasingly concerned with the tones and rhetoric that accompany social media. When Christians speak more fervently about the possibility of financial collapse than they do about the final judgment there's a problem. When we can debate the constitution more readily and seek to defend it with more tenacity than the scripture then something is amiss. When political figures are called saviors and spoken of in messianic tones it isn't hyperbole or urgency it's blasphemy. Perhaps it's time to pause and consider whose kingdom we are part of.
18 For many live, about whom I have often told you, and now, with tears, I tell you that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ. 19 Their end is destruction, their god is the belly, they exult in their shame, and they think about earthly things. 20 But our citizenship is in heaven – and we also eagerly await a savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, 21 who will transform these humble bodies of ours into the likeness of his glorious body by means of that power by which he is able to subject all things to himself.
(Philippians 3:18-21)

This week's thought from the word goes along with yesterday's am sermon. When the will to worship fails do we change the worship to suit the individual or find reason to reignite our passion? We try to answer that in "The Will to Worship".
Be sure to comment on the blog or leave your thought's here.

Under the old law there was tithing and free will offerings. Today the rules for giving are not as defined. So what does God expect from us when we give? We'll answer the questions of one of our members and search the scripture for some perspective on cheerful giving.

Many today find their interest in worship declining. Can a walk through the Psalms help reignite our passion for praising God? Finding the will to worship was yesterday morning's lesson.

Can you answer the one question that matters most? The sixth and final lesson in our series seeks to answer a question that becomes increasingly difficult for those who do not mind their faith. Why am I a Christian?

Seeking the Father's will in everything is our highest calling, but there's a lot of sacrifice involved in walking the narrow way. Can we say that we desire for nothing less than the Father's will to be done? The fifth lesson in our series is entitled Nevertheless

Why would God want me to return? How do we receive the one who is repenting? Do we have the same whys as our Father when it comes to His children?

The whys of the Father is the fourth in our series of lessons on why
