CGA President, Tribe of Judah Founder & President
Our church services for tomorrow have already been canceled due to inclement weather.
I am indeed, at least for a little while longer. Don't know how long I have until white takes over...or I just lose the rest if what's up top. HahaGood stuff! Thx for posting the link! And I saw you! Didn't realize you were a ginger! Or at least your Goatee looks like you are.
Sure!I have been doing a series on Romans with our church body, and we are currently in Romans 5:12-20. I might post some notes if anyone is interested.
The focus of the first sermon was the role of pastor.Now we ask you, brothers, to give recognition to those who labor among you and lead you in the Lord and admonish you, and to regard them very highly in love because of their work. Be at peace among yourselves. And we exhort you, brothers: warn those who are irresponsible, comfort the discouraged, help the weak, be patient with everyone. See to it that no one repays evil for evil to anyone, but always pursue what is good for one another and for all.
Give thanks in everything,
for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
Don’t stifle the Spirit.
Specifically, he taught on the role of church members in the life of the church.Therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, I urge you to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God; this is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God.
For by the grace given to me, I tell everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he should think. Instead, think sensibly, as God has distributed a measure of faith to each one. Now as we have many parts in one body, and all the parts do not have the same function, in the same way we who are many are one body in Christ and individually members of one another. According to the grace given to us, we have different gifts:
use it according to the standard of one’s faith;
if service, in service;
if teaching, in teaching;
if exhorting, in exhortation;
giving, with generosity;
leading, with diligence;
showing mercy, with cheerfulness.
Love must be without hypocrisy. Detest evil; cling to what is good.
