Pay attention to the sermon.
If you missed it (or any part of it), watch it here.

Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain.
Inspire — Building a Vision. Why is this important?
“So you also, when you have done all that you were commanded, say, ‘
We are unworthy servants; we have only done what was our duty.”
“Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it.”
Instruct — Building a Biblical foundation. Teaching to know and to follow God.
Sunday Morning Bible Study: The Big Idea
Our service to others reveals how well or how poorly we have internalized what Christ has done for us.
John 13 is the account of Jesus washing the disciples feet. He took the servant’s role and did what was undoubtedly an unpleasant task. He did it because it needed doing. He did it as an example for us. John 13:15, “For I have given you an example, that you also should do just as I have done to you.” We serve others because we are following Jesus’ example. We serve others to show them the love of Jesus and the difference He has made in us.
- Recount a time when someone served you.
- What impact did it have on you?How can you serve someone in your family this week?
- How can you serve “your one” this week?
Instill — Building a Legacy. Passing faith to the next generation.
Sunday Morning Sermon: The Big Idea
“Thriving is about believing everything God has said is true.” Brent Warren
The implications of this statement are profound. God has said that we are sinners worthy of judgment, but He has provided salvation through Jesus Christ. Without Christ this life is without meaning or purpose, and there is no hope of eternal life with God. God has said that He loves us and He is for us. Even when things look bleak, God is with us. He will never abandon us.
- Has there been a time when you truly stepped out in faith and trusted God?
- When facing times of doubt, remember God’s faithfulness in your past.
