Showing Patience and Self-Control

Watch the full service here June 28, 2020 // This teaching series is based upon the second Greatest Commandment to love others and share the Gospel with them in both truth and love. The Holy Spirit gives us patience and self-control as we learn to live a fasting lifestyle. A fasting lifestyle means learning to say “no” to things that have gotten more important to us than God. Taking the time to be patient allows us time to be smarter than our sin. There is a difference between a failing of the flesh as opposed to open disobedience and rebellion to what God says is good.

Showing Kindness and Gentleness

Watch the full service here June 7, 2020 // This teaching series is based upon the second Greatest Commandment to love others and share the Gospel with them in both truth and love. The Holy Spirit is the sole Source of our ability to show kindness and gentleness. Guys, our culture can tell us that being kind and gentle is a weakness, yet Jesus did it and was not weak at all. This fruit becomes part of our lives when we forgive others like God forgives us, reconcile broken relationships, and purposefully set out to be kind and gentle. We must be willing to look different from the world and cut out our own corrupting inner voices. It can be very difficult to be kind to difficult people,
