  • Prophesied

    Hope

    Sunday, November 28th, 2021

    The Hebrew Bible (Old Testament) is filled with a collection of oracles, revelations, and predications about a future ruler. This ruler possesses attributes not necessarily indicative of an esteemed and powerful king. Yet, while not possessing these ideal traits, this ruler will represent a cosmic shift in the world and in the lives of individuals. Will we receive this prophesied ruler to be our righteousness?

    In addition to a longing to be well in mind and body, we also thrive for spiritual wellness. Some could say this is the ultimate endeavor of all our pursuits. Spiritual wellness is embodiment and embrace of the greatest truth (God loves us) and the Greatest command (Love God and Love Others).

    The Health and Wellness industry boasts an economy valued at 4.5 trillion dollars. People all over the world spend money to lose weight, stay fit, eat healthier, look younger and manage diseases. As Christians, we find ourselves praying continually for those who have diseases, pain and other issues with the body. Our bodies are called “temples of the Holy Spirit”. Accordingly, we should not balk at ways to be and live healthy lives. In addition, praise God that he has invited us to call on him to heal us when our bodies suffer injury, pain, or disease.

    In recent years, there have been a surplus of celebrities and athletes who have gone public with their battle with mental illness. What has become public due mostly to their status in society is a battle that many are dealing with but are afraid to admit it. The stigma associated with mental illness often hinders Christians from addressing their illness and asking for help and healing. In this message, we will consider a real-life struggle with mental illness and explore the Biblical character of Elijah, who also dealt with mental illness. We will also make a plea to God for healing of the mind.

    The second letter to Thessalonians has been the source of some debate. Some question whether Paul was the author. In this final sermon, we will forgo a discussion of Paul’s authorship and will illuminate the message. The church in Thessalonians continued to struggle with the Lord’s return. This letter provides a poignant and terse encouragement to stay the course.

    Continuing Paul’s discussion about the Parousia (second coming of Jesus), we will conclude our exploration of the first letter to the Thessalonians. Paul continues to quell the fears of the young Christians regarding the Lord’s return. Paul stressed that having a firm understanding of the Lord’s return will impact the believer’s outlook on living. While remaining alert for Christ’s return, staying alert need not be expressed through fear. Instead of fear, Paul encourages a proactive faith demonstrated through prayer, service, community, and holy living.

    Since the beginning of the church, speculation about the events of Jesus’ return has griped followers of Jesus. In times of crisis, speculation and anxiety grows. In this letter, Paul’s writing indicates that unfamiliarity of Christ’s return was the source of anxiety and confusion. We will dive into Paul’s description of the Lord’s triumphant return.

    Living in a world that seems intent on being antithetical to the ways of the kingdom, the church is repeatedly called to be different. The different life is amplified in the way we treat people and in the way we live in pursuit of God’s holy way.

    What is the word of God? Is it the collection of words contained in a book we call the Bible? Or is it something bigger, deeper, and more impactful? A key indicator of growing church communities is its embrace and embody of the word of God.

    In this letter, we learn of the intimate connection Paul had with this young church.  Both the apostle and the church felt a comforting connection with one another.  If we “care”, we will extend our lives in service to others.  The enduring legacy of the Christ community is the sharing of gospel (good news) and the sharing of its life to the benefit of others.

    This early church community in Thessalonica experienced opposition from the start. Paul’s hastened departure from the area left him feeling uneasy about the plight of this young community. This prompted him to write a letter to encourage them. Our care and concern for young disciples is necessary to ensure they grow and mature in the faith.

    How can we, the people of God, involve God-centered ethics and actions in our relationships. We have no reason to believe that our destiny and fate are doomed. The cure to our relationship conundrum is love.

    It was Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr who is quoted as saying,

    ... it is appalling that the most segregated hour of Christian America is eleven o'clock on Sunday morning.

    Black and white folks have long retreated to their respective cultural homes when it comes to worship. Worshipping with our "own folks" has been a source of safety and comfort.

    One of the calls that we, as a church, need to embrace is our identity as a family. There is a reason why we refer to one another as brothers and sisters.

    Talk is not cheap! Our words and the way we say things have proven to be tremendously hurtful to others. Relationships are being torn apart because of the way we speak to one another. How can we better use our words as tools for blessing others as opposed to using our words as weapons against relational bliss?

  • We Just Disagree

    Conflict in Relationships

    Sunday, July 18th, 2021

    by Dion Frasier

    Since God created humans with all its complexities, it is understandable that humans will have instances where they disagree and that they will have conflict with one another. It is also helpful to know that conflict doesn’t always have to end tragically. How can the people of God usher in a better way to handle conflict? Can individuals or groups disagree while still working toward the best interests of one another?
