  • This Is His Commandment Series

    Contributed by Marc Heatherington on Jul 14, 2021

    "And whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do those things that are pleasing in His sight. And this is His commandment: that we should believe on the name of His Son Jesus Christ and love one another, as He gave us commandment." 1 John 3:23-24

    This is His Commandment By Marc Heatherington Our passage today is from 1 John 3:22-23: And whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do those things that are pleasing in His sight. And this is His commandment: that we should believe on the name of His Son Jesus more

  • Moved By Afflictions Series

    Contributed by Troy Borst on May 26, 2021

    In this particular passage of 1 Thessalonians 3, Paul wants to encourage the Thessalonians in their faith in the midst of trials and doesn’t want them discouraged because he and his companions, including Timothy, suffer trials and hardships.

    MOVED BY AFFLICTIONS 1 THESSALONIANS 3:1-13 #1Thessalonians3 READ 1 THESSALONIANS 3:1-13 Therefore, when we could bear it no longer, we were willing to be left behind at Athens alone, 2 and we sent Timothy, our brother and God's coworker in the gospel of Christ, to establish and exhort you in more

  • A Steadfast Faith Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Apr 7, 2021

    It is easy to start the race, but the finish is what really matters, and so it is in the Christian life. It is one thing to start on the way, and another thing to keep going all the way. What we really need is not starting power but staying power,

    To make no gain for one’s labor is a perfectly natural cause for disappointment. Jesus knew this feeling often as His disciples failed to grasp His teaching, and especially when Judas betrayed Him. Paul knew it well when he wrote with a saddened heart that Demas had forsaken him. Many have more

  • The Impossible Is Indispensable Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Apr 7, 2021

    Certainly all of us have had the experience of not knowing how to express our gratitude. Thanks sometimes seems so inadequate, and even when we add thanks so very much, and thanks a million, it leaves us with a sense of having very poorly expressed how we feel.

    The concept of the impossible changes from generation to generation. Much of what we do today was once thought to be impossible. Because of this, we are more cautious today in what we include in the category of the impossible. We are no longer quick to say it can't be done. What is apparently more

  • Divine Direction Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Apr 7, 2021

    Paul is praying for divine direction. This clearly implies that not all that happens is God’s providence, for what is the need for praying for specific divine direction if all that life brings us is his pre-determined direction anyway.

    A common saying that has become well-known is, “Truth is stranger than fiction.” When one begins to study what has really happened in history he discovers that reality if just as amazing and interesting as anything that could be invented. For example, I read the story of a drifter in Australia more

  • Appointed To Affliction Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Apr 7, 2021

    As far as possible the Christian is to live peaceably with all men. The ideal is progress without persecution, but the world will not tolerate the Christian conviction, and so there will be tribulation, and we must be prepared to face it if we stand for the truth as we ought.

    One of our neighbors had a common but nerve wracking experience. Her little girl did not come home from school at noon. She got worried and went out to look for her, but she was no where around. The mother was just sick with worry as the worst possible thoughts went through her mind. She sought more

  • The Heart Of God's Man (Part 2) Series

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Dec 9, 2020

    Paul had begun to share the burden of his heart with the church in Thessalonica. Although absent from them, his care and love for the church remained strong. The remainder of this chapter continues to reveal Paul's heart for them.

    The Heart of God’s Man (Part 2) 1 Thessalonians 3: 1-13 (6-13) In our last study we began to consider the heart that Paul had for the church and the work that God had called him to. Just as a reminder, let’s quickly review Vv.1-5. I. The Investment of the Pastor (1-2a) A. His Forbearance (1a) – more

  • The Heart Of God's Man (Part 1) Series

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Dec 1, 2020

    The heart of a pastor is unique. In this enlightening text, Paul shares his heart for the church in Thessalonica. Through his candid and honest words, we find a description of what a pastor's heart should contain.

    The Heart of God’s Man (Part 1) 1 Thessalonians 3: 1-13 The heart of a pastor is a very unique thing. He feels many of the same emotions anyone else does. It isn’t that the pastor is given something that is impossible for others to possess, but his heart is special because it is different. I more

  • Stand Strong Series

    Contributed by C. Philip Green on Sep 10, 2020

    To stand strong in the face of adversity, depend on one another, depend on the Lord, and demonstrate love for others.

    In her book God Uses Cracked Pots, Patsy Clairmont describes the day she sent her 7-year old son, Jason, to school. A little while later there was a knock on the door. Patsy opened the door and it was Jason. She said, “Jason, what are you doing here?” He replied, “I’ve quit school!” She asked, more

  • A Prayer For The Congregation Series

    Contributed by Richard Tow on May 31, 2020

    This message examines Paul's prayer for the Philippians in 1:3-11 identifying major elements in the prayer that we can emulate. Paul prays with (1) thanksgiving (2) confidence (3) passion and (4) purpose.

    We have begun a study of Philippians. Last week we dealt with the history of this church as recorded in Acts 16. God has sovereignly chosen to give us a lot of information about the founding of the church at Philippi. All of that is helpful in our interpretation of this letter. In that message we more

  • Complete Salvation – The Secure Promise Of God

    Contributed by Dr. Craig Nelson on May 30, 2020
    based on 3 ratings

    What a person believes about God is the most important thing contained in their mind. It affects everything about them. Specifically, what they believe about God shapes them spiritually, emotionally, and physically.

    Far too many people feel God is remote, impersonal, and unknowable. Because of that, many Born-Again Christians suffer from an inability to feel forgiven, and live with nagging doubts and fear about their relationship with God. Failure to love and trust God often comes from picturing Him as more

  • Every Chance You Get: Build A Bridge

    Contributed by Wade Martin Hughes, Sr on Jan 8, 2020

    Consider the difference between a wall and a bridge. We often build walls to try and protect ourselves. A wall came become a prison that limits our growth. God's plan is that we build BRIDGES. Let us connect to growth.

    EVERY CHANCE YOU GET --- BUILD A BRIDGE? By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. TEXT: I love word artist that can paint with words… 1 Thessalonians 3:12 And the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all men, even as we do toward you: 1 more

    Contributed by Shawn Drake on Aug 18, 2019
    based on 1 rating

    This is the 5th sermon in the 1 Thessalonians series, "Encouragement". What does the Model Encourager look like?

    Series: Encouragement [#5] BEING A MODEL ENCOURAGER 1 Thessalonians 3:1-13 Introduction: Everyone needs someone to encourage them. So often, we are good at telling people their faults and how they can improve things; but we’re not very good at encouraging them to continue on. When things get more

  • Prayer (Part 2) Series

    Contributed by Scott Bayles on Apr 12, 2019

    What do you do when God says no? In 2 Corinthians 12, Paul sets an example by praying about his problems, praying with persistence, and discovering the true power of prayer.

    Prayer (2) Scott Bayles, pastor Blooming Grove Christian Church: 3/1/2015 Last Sunday we began a brief series on prayer. In Matthew 6, Jesus reveals four secrets to a successful prayer life, urging us to pray sincerely, pray secretly, pray simply, and pray securely. But even when we follow more
