We're continuing our series of Seven Transforming Beliefs. This episode is all about cultivating a thriving friendship with the Holy Spirit. What does that mean? How do we do it?
The LORD has not left us to fend for ourselves. He has sent us His help through the Holy Spirit. Yet, many Christians live largely untransformed lives. In this episode, we'll begin unpacking the ministry of the Spirit, and how He is the one who brings transformation.
This bonus episode is from Wednesday, May 13, 2021. I preached during our Wednesday night worship while our pastor was in Uganda. I continued the ongoing series through 1 Peter that he has been teaching. The passage preached from is 1 Peter 3:13-17
The Gospel does more than save us. It empowers us to grow and live a life that pleases the LORD in the here and now. It's more than the facts that led you to salvation. It's the good news that keeps transforming you all along the journey.
Kingdom authority in the church is derived the same way it is in the family: through loving service. This episode will focus on how we identify leaders (elders, pastors, deacons, etc.) within the church based upon the way Kingdom authority works.
An issue that doesn't get much airtime in many churches is authority. What does Kingdom authority look like? How do we walk in it? We spend more time talking about it than defining it. That's what we're doing in this episode. We're defining Kingdom authority.
