Is saying “thank you” enough to be considered a thankful person? Is saying a brief prayer before a meal enough to be called thankful? Is sending out an occasional thank you card for a received gift enough? How do we embrace the idea of being so full of thanks that someone would describe us as being thankful?
It is much easier to give thanks to God for good things or positive answers to our prayers. The command is given to us though to be thankful in all things. How can we be thankful for those things we perceive to be painful or difficult? Does God expect us to be grateful for loss and hurt? How can we genuinely thank God for all things?
We will define and illustrate what an attitude of thankfulness looks like. Being thankful is a spiritual discipline all of us should strive for.
We will look at the directions Jesus left for His followers of what we should do if we find ourselves living in the end of times.
Examining both Matthew 24-26 and 2 Timothy 3 we will develop an understanding of how many will think and act during the last days.
We will explore what the Bible says about the end of days and seek to understand if we are living in them and what we should do/be in light of them.
We remember the death, burial, and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in song, word and by partaking of the communion elements together.
Why do we get up every morning and jump back on the hamster wheel? We will consider who we are really working for when we work.
What are some of the principles and characteristics of a follower of Jesus when we go to work?
There is a futility to work that drives many to quit or produce bad work habits. We will look at this little book and seek to answer why, how and for whom we work.
Join us from Canon Beach as Pastor Phil makes a Biblical case for Rest and it's importance in each of our lives.
We are called to serve with one another to build God's kingdom. Everyone matters and is important to what He is doing.
As we live in this broken world, the sovereignty of God demands that we sound and act differently from the world we live in.
Every part if creation has been impacted by sin, most especially our close relationships. Jesus came to redeem all of creation, but we still have to deal with brokenness in those close to us.
We are called to actively participate in the sanctification process of becoming more like Jesus by putting on His character after removing our old selves.
Our old way of living is so "normal" to us but we must remember that is not what we are called to.
The evil one wants to get us off track in our thinking. We need to keep Jesus first in our thought life.
We have a tendency to move away from the simplicity of a relationship with Jesus by adding to what He has already done for us.
The philosophy of the world impacts every area of our lives. How do we live godly in a world that is increasingly hostile to God? How do we walk unscathed through this world? We must make a choice and then cling to the truths we find in His Word.
