We return to our series, BIG, today as we consider 2 Timothy 3. Pastor Jeff reminds us that we have quite the challenge ahead of us as followers of Christ, but with Jesus our goal of being obedient is attainable. We cannot be led astray by those who would have us chase after things other than Christ. Jesus loves us more than we can imagine, and we can follow after Him in obedience.
We take a break from our BIG series this week as Pastor Jason reminds us of the command we have been given to love one another. We find this command throughout the New Testament, and it is foundational for us as a part of the family of God and community of believers. Pastor Jason draws our attention to 1 John 4 and John 13.
We begin 2 Timothy this week in our series, BIG, as pastor Jeff reminds us that the call of CHirst on our lives is a call to be a disciple maker. Paul knew this in his relationship with Timothy, and we should be reminded of it in our relationships as well. We have been called to make a big commitment as followers of Christ to pour ourselves into the next generation of Christians.
There are a million different things that will vie for our attention in this world, and there are many people who would seek to deceive us away from the true gospel. It is very tempting when we are in difficult situations in our lives to seek after an easier route. In today's sermon, Pastor Jeff draws our attention to 1 Timothy 6 where Paul encourages Timothy, and us, to fight the good fight of faith and pursue godliness in our lives.
The church is a family. If we are going to get to the point God has called us to, then we have to be willing to work through the awkward that will inevitably come our way. We have to care for each other. In order to care for each other, we must notice and be aware of each other. Pastor Jeff continues our series, BIG, as we look at 1 Timothy 5 this week.
We continue on in our series, BIG, as Pastor Jeff points our attention to 1 Timothy 4. He outlines how we have to be aware of what is going on around us so that we can stand tall when we are challenged in our faith. Then we must be able to stand firm in the face of difficulty that we will face.
We continue our series, BIG, with a look at 1 Timothy 3. This week Pastor Jeff examines what Paul has to say about the incredible importance of teamwork in the church. Leadership matters because teamwork matters and it leads to the glory of our great God shining through the church.
Our new Lead Pastor, Jeff Fields, delivers a message on what it means to live a BIG life in light of being a follower of Christ. We look at Paul's words in 1 Timothy 2 to see that the key to living a big life is prayer.
Pastor Jeff continues our series through the books of 1 & 2 Timothy, BIG, with a look at 1 Timothy 1:18-20. He encourages us to get in and fight hard for the gospel and faith that we have. We can no longer sit by and let things happen in culture. God has called us to step up and stand tall in the face of adversity with a big fight for a big faith.
