Sermon Wrap-Up for Nov 30
Good Morning! There’s a bonus here: The Thanksgiving Sermon from Wednesday. That’s right, 3 sermons for the price of one! It’s my Cyber Monday deal for you.
Wednesday Evening: On Thanksgiving (audio)
How are we thankful?
1. Prayer, alert for seeing the blessings of God
2. Prayer, petitioning God to empower His people
3. Conduct, being wise
4. Conduct, speaking with grace
Morning Sermon: 1 Corinthians 13 (audio)
1 Corinthians 13
Don't be a Noisy Christian
1. Things that cease
2. Things that abide
3. Things to avoid
4. things to pursue
Love is the only one of these 3 wherein we are like God: the others bring us before Him, teach us to rely on Him.
But only by loving do we do what Jesus did.
Faith hope love.
We cannot show love without obedience to the Lord
We cannot have hope without compassion from the Lord
Evening Sermon: Acts 19:21-41 (audio)
1. Great is our Christmas tradition!
2. Great is our shopping extravaganza!
3. Great shall be our anger if we don't get our way!
Or, perhaps, we should let Christ overwhelm it all and change our entire way of life.
Note: the evening sermon was quite shortened. We do an open question time on Sunday nights. As a church, most of us are reading through the Bible this year, using a Chronological Study Bible. I take questions mainly pertaining to the reading, but I will take a shot at anything. This past week included reading 1 & 2 Corinthians, so I took questions on:
- Baptism for the dead
- Speaking in Tongues
- Handing someone “over to Satan”
- Head coverings in church
That took a few extra minutes . Therefore, the sermon shortened up some to respect the need to think about what we already covered. Those interactions are not videoed, so there’s nothing to put up here.
1. I do have the rough audio of Sunday Night’s Q&A session, but I’m not sure yet that it’s useful for posting.
2. I am not sure how to improve video quality with the current equipment.

4. Yes, I think I’m not getting a lot of plays on each service or hits on each blog, but in total it’s a decent reach. A social media expert might suggest changes, but this is free-to-cheap, where I have to live right now.
