Instructions for Christian Living
In our consumeristic culture how do we serve others instead of indugling in our own self desires. Let’s take a look at our heart and our motives for the reasons we are serving and make sure they line up with God’s calling in our lives.
Phases of Our Spiritual Journey
LL Clay • NorthPointe Church of God - Nacogdoches, TX • Sermon • • 10 views • 25:08
After we experience salvation and have studied the Bible for awhile, we begin to ask, "What can I do for God?" Can we receive joy and satisfaction by serving God and others? If so how? Pastor Clay reminds us to not only make sure we do not neglect studying His Word and our time with God, but also to check our motives as we serve. Pastor Clay also shares areas, according to the Bible, we can serve, even if we do not have that "burning bush experience" of God calling us to do something specific.

Life is fast and short, but you must "Be Very Sure" of your destination before it's too late.
How I Met Jesus
Jesus' earthly ministry is coming to a close. Judas has plotted to betray Him. Out of His love for His disciples, He chooses one last lesson in their discipleship; He washes their feet. A powerful metaphor for those of us who call ourselves Followers of Jesus.
Our society is constantly bombarding us with messages on how we are to be perfect. And if you do not match up to those messages or actually make a mistake, shame and guilt can rush in. This sets us up to judge others according to these social rules in order to build up our own image. There are people today who feel like the church is not a safe place for them, especially if their secrets were known. What kind of church do we want to be? How can we be real with ourselves as well as real with others? What are we willing to do to be the church for the broken? If we are honest with ourselves, we are all broken people. Listen for what Jesus says about those who are broken beyond repair in the eyes of others...
