Move From Survive to THRIVE in 201five! Part 2 “Thriving Through Baptism”

January 13, 2015

Sunday, January 11, 2015

Today we talked about the baptism of our Lord, Jesus, and learned about the benefits of baptism. Baptism is a Sacrament and a means of Grace. Do you know what Grace is? Listen to find out.
Mark 1:4–11
Mark's gospel reports the story of Jesus' baptism with some irony: the one on whom the Spirit descends is himself the one who will baptize others with the Holy Spirit.

4John the baptizer appeared in the wilderness, proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. 5And people from the whole Judean countryside and all the people of Jerusalem were going out to him, and were baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins. 6Now John was clothed with camel's hair, with a leather belt around his waist, and he ate locusts and wild honey. 7He proclaimed, "The one who is more powerful than I is coming after me; I am not worthy to stoop down and untie the thong of his sandals. 8I have baptized you with water; but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit."
9In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. 10And just as he was coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens torn apart and the Spirit descending like a dove on him.11And a voice came from heaven, "You are my Son, the Beloved; with you I am well pleased."

NUMB3R5 Part 1: Los 33

November 17, 2014

Then the kingdom of heaven will be like this. Ten bridesmaids took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. 2Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. 3When the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them; 4but the wise took flasks of oil with their lamps. 5As the bridegroom was delayed, all of them became drowsy and slept. 6But at midnight there was a shout, 'Look! Here is the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.' 7Then all those bridesmaids got up and trimmed their lamps. 8The foolish said to the wise, 'Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.' 9But the wise replied, 'No! there will not be enough for you and for us; you had better go to the dealers and buy some for yourselves.' 10And while they went to buy it, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went with him into the wedding banquet; and the door was shut. 11Later the other bridesmaids came also, saying, 'Lord, lord, open to us.' 12But he replied, 'Truly I tell you, I do not know you.' 13Keep awake therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour.
Matthew 25:1-13

Coming to Know a Generous God, Pt 1

September 22, 2014

Philippians 1:21–30

Key verse:For he [God] has graciously granted you the privilege not only of believing in Christ, but of suffering for him as well (v. 29)

Paul encourages the Philippians to unite – stand side by side, as one in mind and for the faith of the gospel, to not be intimidated by those who oppose them (this coming from someone in prison awaiting most certain execution for his faith in Christ).

Why should the Philippians do this?

29For he [God] has graciously granted you the privilege not only of believing in Christ, but of suffering for him as well (v. 29)

Now, here is the deal…

On behalf of Christ, God has gifted us graciously the honor and privilege of

·        A) Believing in Christ

·        B) Suffering for Christ
