This sermon, titled "The Garden of Contentment: Rediscovering Thanksgiving," delves into the theme of contentment and its biblical roots. It begins by reflecting on the essence of Thanksgiving, emphasizing gratitude and contentment, and then transitions to the story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, highlighting their initial state of contentment. The sermon is structured into several parts. The first part focuses on the contentment experienced by Adam and Eve in Eden, referencing Genesis 2:25. It discusses how their contentment was disrupted by the serpent's temptation, as detailed in Genesis 3:4-6, drawing parallels to modern temptations like materialism and the influence of advertising. The next part addresses the irony of Black Friday, contrasting it with the spirit of Thanksgiving and the Biblical call to contentment, as emphasized in Hebrews 13:5. The sermon then explores societal misconceptions about contentment, using Philippians 4:11-12 to show that true contentment is about finding peace in one's current situation, rather than constantly seeking more. The final part of the sermon encourages a renewed focus on gratitude and contentment during Thanksgiving, supported by 1 Timothy 6:6-8. It concludes with a call to action for the congregation to practice contentment and gratitude continually, not just during Thanksgiving.

Querido irmão, hoje meditaremos sobre a adoção ou conservação de valores bíblicos em meio a dois ambientes totalmente distintos: a sociedade e a igreja local. Pela misericórdia do Senhor fazemos parte de ambos que, apesar de distintos, inspiram reflexões a serem destacadas dentro de nossa filosofia bíblica de vida. Selecionamos alguns dentre os muitos valores que a bíblia sagrada nos ensina que podemos aplicar nestes dois ambientes.

How to Handle Society I don't know if you have noticed or not, but the society we live in is not very Christian-like. In fact, anymore, it is just about outright anti-Christian. It is getting harder and harder to be a part of society and be a Christian. So how do we deal with our faith and society in…

Do you remember the song entitled “The Heat is On” by Glenn Frey back in 1984 popularized by the movie “Beverly Hills Cop” starred by Eddie Murphy? It is a secular song, though what it meant somehow makes sense to our lives as christians living in a pagan country. This culture and generation is putting a lot of heat on us. To the Islam Religion, we are “infidels”. To Radical Islam, we are the most favorite target of terrorism. Though this country was founded in christianity, but our society is changing. In many ways, this country is beginning to look like Babylon. It is a country of different peoples and languages. With various cultures and religions, trying its best to stay “united”. Well, at least its name sounds “united”, “United” States of America. Only deaf ears and blind eyes could say, that the people of this nation are completely okay. The silent majority are groaning quietly. The more vocal sectors of society, are crying loudly. The leaders of the country are divided sharply. What should you do, when the heat is on you? Hang on, help is coming. Expect that God is able to deliver you. Announce your loyalty to God and Trust in Him.

The Israelites of Elijah's day worshiped other gods because there was no fear of God amongest them. Therefore they developed a duality of worship. Just like then, our society is doing the same thing. What action will take for God to grab societies attention today?

YouTube video: https://youtu.be/TTz-7kzo-b0 The Pharisees were willing to justify thoughts of murdering of Lazarus and Jesus to further the cause they believed was righteous. Let us not fall into the trap of letting the end justify the means. Jesus came to Jerusalem in peace, not as a warrior to enact…

In the 30th chapter, Isaiah utters a woe upon the nation of Israel for establishing a Treaty of Mutual Protection with her former oppressor—the nation of Egypt. Instead of relying on God’s supernatural intervention on the behalf of His people, His people turn to worldly alliances. “Woe to those who go…
