Yesterday I continued the sermon series "God's Amazing Grace" by asking the question: "What happens at the moment of conversion". In his epistles Paul uses several descriptive words on a reoccurring basis:
At the moment of conversion we are reunited with God, washed clean, found "not guilty", set apart for God's work, and rescued.
-Pastor Jeff Carico
Sunday I will continue my sermon series on "God's Amazing Grace". Adam and Eve's sin placed mankind in an unacceptable state before God. Yet, God had a plan to restore mankind back into a relationship with him. That plan was a person, Jesus Christ!
I know you will be challenged and inspired by this sermon series. I encourage you to bring a friend as we share the Word of God together!
See you Sunday!
Yesterday I began a sermon series entitled "God's Amazing Grace". The definition of grace is "unmerited favor, getting the benefit of something you did not earn". Jesus paid the debt of our sin and we get the benefit of salvation!
I began the sermon series by asking the question "Why do we need grace"? This question was answered by reading Genesis 3 and discovering that as Adam and Eve sinned all of mankind was placed in a state of sin that is unacceptable to God. This sin has separated us from God and a plan of salvation was needed to reunite God and mankind. Jesus was and is that plan of salvation!
I encourage you to join us as we continue our study of "God's Amazing Grace"! See you Sunday!
This Sunday I will begin a sermon series entitled "God's Amazing Grace". This will be an exciting look into God's Word!
I look forward to seeing you this Sunday in the House of God!
Acts 16: 6-10 gives us the interesting account of Paul and his traveling companions as they traveled several hundred miles with no clear direction from God. I call this the "in-between" time, when God has not clearly given His direction.
How did Paul react in the "in-between" time?
1. He Kept Walking
2. He Kept Asking And Listening
3. He Remained Willing
4. He Kept Himself Under Control
5. He Did The Things Directly In Front Of Him
These are good examples for us to follow when we find ourselves in the "in-between" times of life!
Remember, God is faithful!
-Pastor Jeff Carico
The title of my Sunday sermon will be "What Do You Do When You Are In The In-Between?" Acts 16 gives us the story of when the Apostle Paul was without a clear direction from God. For the duration of a long journey and over many miles Paul journeyed without a clear direction from God. How did he do it, and what can we learn from his experience?
Life is not always crystal clear. There are times we find ourselves in the "In-Between" of life! I believe the experience of the Apostle Paul will give us assurance that God will lead us through these periods of our life! Be of good cheer, there is hope in Jesus!
See you Sunday!
We celebrated the first Sunday Morning Worship Service of 2018 by being reminded that each person makes a difference. Your family, your community, your nation, and your church are counting on you to be faithful to the Word of God this coming year. You are making a difference, and I encourage you to not let the Devil tell you anything different! If you fail to serve the Lord, who would take your place?
This Sunday we will celebrate our first worship service of 2018. I am anticipating a year of God's favor! Remember, we are God's children. We are the remembered, not the forgotten. We are the adopted, not the orphaned. We are the first, not the last!
The title of my Sunday sermon will be "Can One Person Make A Difference?" (Genesis 18). You will be surprised at the difference you can make!
I encourage you to invite and bring a friend with you Sunday morning. Come with an expectant attitude. Come believing for a sovereign move of the Holy Spirit. Come expecting a 1st Century move of the Holy Spirit in the 21st Century Church!
See you Sunday,
Pastor Jeff Carico
