Each person in this world is uniquely made by their Creator. Each one of us is unique, created perfectly by our God for works of service both according to how God had made and gifted us, and according to how we have been shaped and molded by life. While we are one body, one family, and ministry sharing one faith. We who are one are also many. And what makes each one us different makes all of us better.
We are a family and a community of believers that walk in faith and through life together. As we go through life things fracture the family. Sometimes it’s sin and hurt that pushes family members apart. Other times it is just because of the busyness of life that we slowly drift apart. On Welcome Home Sunday we want to celebrate the family that we have and recommit ourselves to walking together in faith and through life.
Since the very beginning of our ministry we have operated both a church and a school. These are two very important parts of our ministry. Yet, these are not two ministries, but one. And it's not just these two that are married into one ministry. It's the ministry that each one of us carries out day after day whether at home, in the community, at work, and even here at the church. Whether we come or go, we are one body believers carrying out one ministry and mission together. And this ministry and mission is simple: We are here to share and to show the forgiveness of God and the love of Jesus.
9/8/19 – ONE FAITH
What we believe and teach is the most important thing about who we are and what we do. We are here to share and to show the forgiveness of God and the love of Jesus. This is what we do. And this is what we are. We are a community of faith with Jesus at our core. And we will do whatever we can to make Jesus the main attraction.
God has given Mount Lebanon a mission here and now. We are here to share and show the forgiveness of God and the love of Jesus. In this series we want to consider the things that matter most to us as we carry out this mission. These are the things that God says about what is important to him for his church. These are the things that we value. These are the beliefs that guide our actions and interactions with each other and our community. This is a series about those things.
We have some amazing work to do. We are called by our God to join him in his mission of saving the world. We are called to preach, to teach, to tell, to spread the message about Jesus with a dying world and especially with the people in our own lives.
There is a ton of work to do. And it's hard work. Sometimes we even wonder if it's working. Sometimes we wonder if it even matters.
Our God makes some astounding promises to us that that let us rest even while we work. The work is ours to do. The results are his to bring about. And his Word promises that he will. Listen as Pastor Bublitz shows us the promises that God makes to us about his Word and about our work.
Questions are powerful. They can lead us to be introspective and incisive. They can lead us to see ourselves better and more clearly. They an also lead to a better and clearer understanding of God as they lead us to meditate on who he is and what he’s done. That’s the idea behind our series: Mission Questions. We want to spend some time asking questions of ourselves and our own thinking about our personal and church mission work. We also want to spend time going deeper into God’s mission and his heartfelt desire for the world.
Today, as we continue walking through Romans 10, Pastor Bourman asks the leading question: If the gospel is so powerful and it is what saves people, why don’t we share it more often or more confidently? We have every reason to do it, so let’s roar!
Today, Pastor Nate Bourman helps us remember that the stakes are high in our lives of faith, eternity is on the line. And God is faithful. He has secured out eternity with the blood of his Son. Our eternity is secure in his grip. This is a sermon on 1 Corinthians 10:1-6 and 11-13.
