This is our new sermon series we will be kicking off in the beginning of January 2016.
Most of us know what it is like to feel physically flabby and how hard it sometimes is to get up off the couch and get disciplined to do something about it. Being spiritually flabby is subtle and even more dangerous. Most of us are not content with our spiritual life and are aware that we are spiritually flabby, but struggle to know what to do about it. The spiritual routine we fell into is just not producing results that make it worth continuing the routine. We need to replace the routine with spiritual discipline that has vision. In 1 Timothy 4:7-8, Paul coaches Timothy,
“Rather train yourself for godliness; for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come.”
None of us could have imagined the quality and clarity of watching HDTV, but when we saw it we were amazed and we never wanted to go back. It is just like this when we get a taste of the newness of life we have in Christ – we want more! In this new series, HD Living, we will be exploring how to get out of the routine and grow in godliness through practicing different spiritual disciplines, which help us experience the fruit of the Spirit and ministry by the gifts of the Spirit. It is about becoming like Jesus, which is the ultimate HD Living.
We encourage you to join us in the month of January where we are going to join together as a church family and practice the spiritual discipline of “fasting” so we can:
• Increase in intimacy with God (Matthew 9:14-15)
• Grow in the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:16-26)
• Come into spiritual gifts to build others up in the faith (Romans 12:3-8; 1 Corinthians 12-14)
• Get miraculous breakthrough where it is needed (Matthew 7:7-11)
A biblical “fast” as practiced in the New Testament is from sun up to sun down, drinking only water during the day. We encourage you to join the Directional Team each Monday from 12 – 1pm at the church for prayer during this “fasting” time in the month of January. We will focus on one of the four goals above each of the four Mondays of January.
