How Jesus Changes Your Identity – Dec 26

Dan Serns Worship Service 0 Comments

Old vs NewYour faith will grow stronger as you focus on your identity in Christ.

What this means is that you abandon any image of yourself that is not from God. You stop accepting what others have said about you, how others have labeled you, and how others have defined you.

You start believing what God says about you, that he is pleased with how he created you, and that God defines you.

You’re not defined by your feelings. You’re not defined by the opinions of others or by your circumstances. You’re not defined by your successes or failures. You’re not defined by the car you drive, the money you make, or the house you say you own when the bank really does.

You are defined by God and God alone. He identifies you as his own.

If you don’t know who you are, then you’re vulnerable to other people telling you who you are. But the concrete, solid, gospel truth is that you are who God says you are, and no one else has a vote in the matter.*

Join us this Sabbath at Richardson (9am First Service) as we look at how Jesus changes our identify as we study Philippians 3. This is the final message in our series “Safe in Christ.” Feel free to invite friends.

Never Overdrawn – Nov 27

BUS_Overdraft-VS-Payday-Loans_t580Have you ever found that you had less money in your bank account than you thought? Stress City!!

On the other hand have you ever found out that you had more money in your account than you thought? You had miscalculated in the wrong direction or someone had put money into your account that you weren’t expecting? What a relief!

As we get closer to the end of this world we need to have all the resources possible in our heavenly “bank account” so our lives aren’t “overdrawn” during times of crisis.

Join us this Sabbath at Richardson (9am First Service) as we study Ephesians 1 and see how Jesus has already filled our heavenly bank account with all the resources we will ever need. And when we learn to be “Safe in Christ” we will never be “overdrawn!”

This is part of our “Safe in Christ” series. Feel free to invite friends.

 

How to be the Person You Want to Be – Nov 21

Dan Serns Worship Service 0 Comments

New PersonHave you ever wished you could be someone different? Someone better? Someone with more confidence? Someone without the baggage of your past. You can be!

The church people at Corinth were a real mess. They had problems with inferiority, arrogance, immorality, sexuality, partying, cheating, etc. Yet Paul called them saints and told them they were sanctified in Christ Jesus (1 Corinthians 1:2).

How can this be? And how can this give us hope? How can we move from being stuck to taking on a new identity “in Christ?” How can we let Jesus change our identity so we no longer say “I was just born that way” or “I’ll never amount to anything”?

Join us this Sabbath at Richardson (9am First Service) as we look at how Jesus can change our identify as we study 2 Corinthians 5. This is part of our “Safe in Christ” series. Feel free to invite friends.

America in Bible Prophecy – Second Service This Sabbath (Nov. 14, 2015)

37f9dad8-cf47-4266-be2b-c64874ca1b23Do you struggle with habits you want to change, but yet you can’t seem to? Have you tried to get victory over sins in your life, but continue to fail?  Do you carry guilt and shame because of those issues in your life?  Have you been tempted just to give up the battle and believe that you are always going to be that way, and there’s nothing you can do about it?  Are you tempted to look for a doctrine that says sin is impossible to overcome because of our condition and therefore it is OK to keep living in sin?  Yet deep inside, don’t you truly long to live a victorious Christian life?
I’m excited about today’s message because when I learned the principles I’m going to share in it, they revolutionized my life.  They are not magic, and they do require making a solid decision. Yet these Bible principles, when applied to our lives, allow God to come in and do for us what we cannot do for ourselves.  They allow Him to give us the gift of a victorious Christian life, and let me tell you, the feeling that comes is incredible.  I can say that from personal experience.  My pray is that something special will begin to happen in your life through this message.

Grace and peace to you,

Pastor Byron

Revival and Reformation is Living like Christ – First Service This Sabbath (Nov. 14, 2015)

photoThe condition of things in the world tells us that difficult times are ahead.  The world is embroiled in confusion and chaos openly and behind the seen at the highest levels. “Men have become infatuated with vice, and every species of evil prevails”.  “The enemy has succeeded in perverting justice and in filling men’s hearts with the desire for selfish gain”.  The good news is that Jesus Christ our risen savior, is coming back again to redeem his people and eradicate sin and Satan.

We are living in the time of the end. The fast-fulfilling signs of the times declare that the coming of Christ is near at hand. The days in which we live are solemn and important. The Spirit of God is gradually but surely being withdrawn from the earth. Plagues and judgments are already falling upon the despisers of the grace of God. The calamities by land and sea, the unsettled state of society, the alarms of war, are portentous. They forecast approaching events of the greatest magnitude.

The agencies of evil are combining their forces and consolidating. They are strengthening for the last great crisis. Great changes are soon to take place in our world, and the final movements will be rapid ones. Counsels for the Church, Page 37– Ellen G. White.  We have the last day message to share with the world Revelation 14: 6-12.  Let us “Lift up the trumpet, and loud let it ring, Jesus is coming again, Cheer up ye pilgrims, be joyful and sing, Jesus is coming again”.
