Sermon for February 24, 2019. The text is 2 Timothy 2:14-26.

I tried to upload a video, but was unsuccessful, so this is only an audio recording.

Challenge: In January I encouraged you to record things in a Gratitude Attitude Memory Book. Take time this week to review what you recorded during January and February. What are the top five things, which have given you joy during the two months?

Passing Our Baton

My sermon from February 17, 2019. The text is 2 Timothy 2:1-13.

Challenge: Last week’s challenge was to find someone to help us with our spiritual growth during the year. This week’s challenge is to find someone you can encourage in their spiritual journey. This could be a family member, someone you are already meeting with, or someone God may bring to mind. You could start by being a prayer partner.

About Face!

Sermon from February 3, 2019. The text is Titus 3:1-15.

Challenge: Last week the challenge was to find one of the characteristics in Titus chapter 2 one trait on which to work. This week’s challenge is to find 3 to 5 verses in the Bible which pertain to this trait. If the trait is “love” – find verses on love. Use a concordance, if you have one; a Bible app; or just google “What the Bible says about love.” Write or print out the verses and put them in your challenge book.

A Knowing Lifestyle

Sermon from January 27, 2019. The text is Titus 2:1-15.

Challenge: Read through Titus 2 and write in your books all the character traits listed in the chapter. Think about each trait and rate yourself on a scale of 1 to 5. One being the trait doesn’t fit you and 5 being the trait fits you exactly. Ask God to guide you to one trait to cultivate this year.
