“In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials” (1 Peter 1:6, NIV). How can the Bible say that we should rejoice in the middle of suffering? Pastor Andy digs into 1 Peter 1:3-9 to find out what Peter meant when he wrote those words, and how they apply to our lives today.
Pastor Andy continues our Christmas series with a message from 1 John 4:7-21 about love. When we receive God’s love and complete it by sharing it with others, God shines in us. This Christmas, let’s love like no one else!
“Forgive and forget.” Or so we’re told. So often we believe that forgiving means forgetting, and since forgetting about the sin and hurt someone has caused us is darn near impossible, we give up and assume we just can’t forgive. But biblical forgiveness is not forgetting, as we see in the final message in our series, Lies Christians Swallow.
Pastor Andy continues the series through 1 Corinthians with one of most all-time well-loved passages of Scripture in history: 1 Corinthians 13, the “love” chapter. We’ll see that this passage isn’t about marriage, but rather about the pathway to spiritual greatness. Why is love the most excellent path to true spirituality? Listen and find out!
