Becoming Fishers of Men
One Another - Forgive One Another
“Passing alongside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew the brother of Simon casting a net into the sea, for they were fishermen. ‘Follow me, and I will make you become fishers of men.’ And immediately they left their nets and followed him.” (Mark 1:16-18 ESV)
This week we were blessed to have Brother Max Perez come and share with us a little about his work for God’s kingdom in the country of Panama. The Perez family is passionate about making disciples in all nations. Please listen with us as Pastor Max shares about what Christ meant when he called his disciples to be “fishers of men.”
One Another - Bear One Another's Burdens
“Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. “ (Colossians 3:13)
“Everyone thinks forgiveness is a lovely idea until he has something to forgive.” - C.S. Lewis
Have you ever been hurt so deeply that you felt forgiveness was impossible? How true is it to our nature that we crave forgiveness for ourselves, but not for others? This week we dive into the Christian mandate regarding forgiveness. Please listen with us as Pastor Kevin discusses the command and the application of what it mean to “forgive as the Lord forgave you.”
One Another - Encourage One Another
Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? (Ecclesiastes 4:9–11)
The Christian life was never meant to be one-man task. God designed us to depend on each other in order for life to flourish. Please listen with us this week as Pastor Kevin discusses why it is vital for Christian’s to learn how to bear one another’s burdens.
One Another - Prefer One Another
Finally, brothers and sisters, rejoice! Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you. (2 Corinthians 13:11)
This week we continue you our topic of “one-anothering”. Please listen with us as Pastor Kevin preaches on the practical need and application for encouragement in the church body.
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. (Philippians 2:3-4)
This week we are continuing our study of “one-anothering.” Please listen with us as Pastor Kevin talks us through what it means to prefer one another above our own interest.
