There is no Scripture that says we will work only until we retire. But what the Scripture does say is that we will work until the day we die. There…
Bible Text: Colossians 3:1-4 | Preacher: Dr. George A. Mulford | Series: Colossians: Complete in Christ Tonight we begin our study of Colossians Chapter 3 in which the apostle Paul gives us practical applications of the doctrines that he has been teaching. It does little good if Christians declare the truth and defend the truth but fail to demonstrate the truth in their daily lives. These great truths of the Bible are not just to be understood but they're to be applied and lived out. If we share Christ's life, then we must also follow His example, so tonight, we'll be looking at how we should live since we are alive in Christ.
Bible Text: James 4: | Preacher: Pastor Nathan Gregory - Bath Baptist Church In our passage tonight, James lays out a very heart-pricking challenge. It's one of those questions that are very pronounced. It's one of the main topics that are not only for our generation in this world today, but it's something that has really been around since the existence of humanity. It's been contemplated down through time. So tonight, let's look at the subject of this very important question from James: What is your life?
Bible Text: Colossians 2:11-15 | Preacher: Dr. George A. Mulford | Series: Colossians: Complete in Christ Everything we need in the Christian life is found in Jesus Christ, but the Colossian church was infected with false teachings made of several elements, including mysticism, astrology, philosophy, and Jewish legalism. In our passage tonight, Paul outlines what we as believers possess in Christ.
Bible Text: Romans 14:1-12 | Preacher: Dr. George A. Mulford | Series: Romans: The Gospel of God's Grace I think pretty much everyone agrees with me that the Church of Jesus Christ is made up of individuals at every possible level of spirituality. Some are aware of the freedom and liberty they enjoy in Jesus Christ and they live accordingly, led by the Spirit of God. There are others who live under legalism, operating by a list of dos and don'ts, and sometimes their list is longer than God's list. If that were the end of it, we would have no problem, but those who live on the far end of liberty in Christ are constantly being judged by those on the opposite end of the spectrum who live by a stricter standard, and vice versa. It's been said that one group flouts and one group flaunts; one group is called liberal and compromisers and the other is called legalistic and judgmental. In our text for today, the apostle Paul seeks to strike a balance for believers, and that's what we're looking at today.
Bible Text: Romans 12:14-16 | Preacher: Dr. George A. Mulford | Series: Romans: The Gospel of God's Grace What is it that makes you different from someone who is not a Christian? The main difference ought to be how we relate to other people, especially those who don't like us and those who mistreat us. Today, we are looking at five powerful principles for Christians on how to live with ourselves and with others.
Bible Text: Romans 12:11-13 | Preacher: Dr. George A. Mulford There are a lot of people who are not really living; they're just existing. In our text today, the apostle Paul gives us eight directions or basic instructions on how to really live. I've put these into three categories on what real living is when it comes to having passion, handling problems, and helping people. Maybe there are some of you today who need to stop just enduring life and start enjoying it in Christ.
