Sermon Series: More Than a Statement

Love God, love others and serve the world is more than a statement. It is the process we follow to make disciples for Jesus Christ. Matt 4:19 We say that a disciple loves God. But it doesn’t begin there. The process begins in our heads, but it doesn’t/can’t stay in our heads. Everyone we invite to church is going through a head process not a heart process. As our heart is…

Things Remembered

1 Thessalonians 1:2-10 The importance of how we live our lives in front of others cannot be stressed enough. Sometimes, we take the wrong road to get folks to God. It’s not if I can just get the person to church. It’s more than that. The way we live in front of people is what they remember about us. It impacts how they see us. It can also impact how they live without us.…

Make a Difference

Michael Parker Luke 10:25-37 Love God, Love Others, Serve the World Who in here says they love God? You can’t say you love God if you don’t love others. 1 John 4:20 – 21 If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, is a liar…. John 13:34-35 A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love on another… What does genuine love look like? Luke 10:25-37 Love is…

Cure for the Sinful Heart, cont.

“If with Christ you died to the elemental spirits of the world, why, as if you were still alive in the world, do you submit to regulations— “Do not handle, Do not taste, Do not touch” (referring to things that all perish as they are used)—according to human precepts and teachings? These have indeed an appearance of wisdom in promoting self-made religion and…

Cure for the Sinful Heart

Analogy: There are many cold medicines in the aisles of our favorite store, but there is no cure for the common cold. They might make you feel better but they do not cure the cold. The ones who think they feel better, are the main folks who go out and infect other people. God has not only explain, sin’s nature, but provided the only remedy. Colossians 2:20 – 23…

A Place to Belong (Back to Church Sunday)

Ephesians 2:19-22 We ought to be saying to others you are welcome. We can sit and sing and glorify God, and at the same time make those who desire to be among us not feel welcome. God, because of grace, always sees us and others “made new”. The problem: we believers, see ourselves and others as “not worthy, fallen, and in need of redemption.” Our…

Let Good Use the Unique You

Matthew 28:19-20 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit. We, individually and collectively, are unique. There is no other church exactly like Harvest, and there is no other person exactly like you. As unique as we are, we all have the same call, charge, and mission. Our call is to follow…

Follow the Leader

Pastor Doris talks about how the childhood game of “follow the leader” applies to us as adults. Even when we don’t understand, we are supposed to follow. The leader has a view that we cannot see. http://media.blubrry.com/living4harvest/p/content.blubrry.com/living4harvest/R_20170903-102742.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download
