Faithful: The Faithfulness of God in Our Mess-ups

Pastor Mike teaches from John 21:15-17 as we looked at the life of Simon Peter from the start of his ministry with Christ (Luke 5:10-11; 22: 31:34; 22:54-62) and how God was still faithful to him even after he denied Christ. The challenge is. what is holding you back from your past? Fors Christ sees past our past and can use you if you allow Him to.

  1. Mess-ups are going to happen and often lead us away from Christ.

  2. In our mistakes we are often reminded of our first encounter with Christ.

  3. You are not defined by your mess ups. Christ defines you, not your mistakes.

Faithful: God our Provider

What do you worry about? Pastor mike teaches from Matthew 6:25-34 about how we should not worry for God has everything under control.

  1. There is more to life than food and clothing (vs. 25)

  2. You are worth more than all of creation (vs 26;33)

    We put God first with our time every day

    Put God first in every week

    Put God first in every payday

    Put God first in your choices

  3. We Seek to feed out spiritual self and cloth our spiritual self.

    Matthew 4:4; 1 Peter 3:4, Colossians 3: 7-15; John 4: 13-14

Faithful

Pastor Mike teaches for Psalm 37:25 as he challenges the church to remain faithful. He reminds us the God is Faithful: Yes He is!. We learned that the Lord remains faithful to those who are His. God cannot forsake you! We remain faithful because of what God has already done, not what God is going to do. No matter what happens in my life, Go will “hold me fast.”

Faithful: Missions Contend for the Faith

Pastor Mike challenges the church of Eastaboga from the book of Jude to go out and to be faithful in missions. The mission field is not within the four walls of this build but as soon as you walk out the doors.

  1. There is One faith leaving us with One message

  2. Missions reminds us of the doom that awaits those who reject the Gospel

  3. Missions preserves the souls of man for all eternity.

  4. Faith mission leads to faithful living.

Faithful: Missions

Pastor Mike teaches from 2 Corinthians 5: 10 & 20 on how we are to go out into the world and share the Gospel.

  1. We are to do this in our evaluation, we will be judged on our response to being saved from sin. That missions is going. 2.

  2. Evangelism it telling. Discipleship is knowing. Fellowship is caring. Worship is the beginning. 3.

  3. Going and telling is the only reason we are kept on this earth.

  4. Who do we go to and what do we tell them?

    * We go to “All the Nations”

    * We tell them to “Be reconciled to God”
