In Spirit & In Truth: It’s Not About You

John 4:1-9

When God is so worthy, He humbles Himself to ask you for something...

Today in Adventures in Glitchy Technology, the livestream cut out about halfway through the sermon and even though the beginning and the end were recorded, the middle third was lost. I tried to "re-preach" that part and insert it, but if there are some "idea breaks," that, in this case, is why. Pray for us!

(Seriously. Pray for us. None of the stuff that happens every single week is anything we can ever plan for. Our tech team shows up an hour early to make sure last week's issue doesn't happen again...and then something else does.)

The Anointed Prince of Peace

Mark 1:9-35

What's in your trunk?

As you are aware, if you listen to these regularly, we at Central Baptist are not equipped with the most streamlined tech equipment. Lately, in order to livestream video without jamming signals, we have to make an audio recording of the livestream, separately, which is what contributes to the "inside a tin can" sound quality of the last few months. We apologize that today the sound is even worse, due to some additional technological glitches on Sunday. We're grateful for your prayers for us in all areas...including this one. Thank you for your patience.

The Once and Future Hope

Daniel 2:31-35

Whose prophecies and hope is the Messiah anyway? And how will we recognize Him?

An Individual Group Project?

Galatians 6

Nobody likes self-control. The guy in the 1600's who put the verse numbers in your Bible? Put self-control in a whole separate verse from the other fruit of the Spirit! But of all the attributes listed, this is the one contributes most directly to Gospel freedom. How can that be?

How Do You Like Them Apples?

Romans 12:1-2, 9-21

Our loving devotion is pleasing to God, and the more devoted we are, the more His loving will is pleasing to us. Goodness is, well, good.

Taking After the King

Ephesians 4:22-32

Patience loves by holding back--even letting go of--the fear and anger of impatience when a situation doesn't go according to plan...or a person 'doesn't go according to plan.' We talked about times that we must love patiently from a distance. But kindness moves outward. Kindness reaches out to bless another person, whether they deserve it or not.
