What’s Stopping You?

What’s Stopping You?

2021-05-0336:42

Have you ever gone to the store and forgotten to get the very thing you went for? Have you ever felt like an outsider in a place where you should feel welcome or at home? If so, then you understand the emptiness the man in today's scripture felt -- leaving a worship space and still longing to encounter Christ and experience new life. Some days, we will be that man full of longing, and at other times, God will be calling us -- like Phillip -- to run alongside others to strengthen them. What's stopping you today from encountering Christ in new ways or helping others do the same? "What’s Stopping You?"  - Rev.

Good Trouble

Good Trouble

2021-04-2629:15

Court is in session! Peter and John have gotten into some "Good Trouble" and now are being judged for preaching, teaching and healing in Jesus' name. Imagine standing beside them -- what charges would be brought against you? Does our witness -- the way we live, love, and serve in the world -- earn us a reputation as good-trouble makers?

Time to Go to Work!

Time to Go to Work!

2021-04-1226:49

Just one week after Easter many of us are still so full of joy from our celebrations, that it may be hard to remember that the first disciples were full of fear and doubt. When Jesus first appeared -- speaking peace into their situation and breathing the Holy Spirit into the room and into them -- they were awestruck. One disciple (who wasn't in the room at the time) was doubt-struck. He could not believe without seeing. Do you have any doubts standing in the way of your discipleship? When Jesus shows up, does he find you paralyzed by fear or following his lead?  “Time to Go to Work!”  - Speaker: Mr. Frederic Cebrun IIJohn 20: 19-31Bulletin flipbook: View https://pubhtml5.com/homepage/ymvqSubscribe to Worship 1st Podcast on iTunes, Spotify, or your favorite player.

Call the Next Witness

Call the Next Witness

2021-04-0531:46

A case is only as good as its witnesses. In the case of the Resurrection, Mary Magdalene was an all-star witness who wasted no time declaring — “I have seen the Lord.” Have you taken the witness stand lately to declare the goodness of the Lord? “Call the Next Witness”  - Rev.

It’s been one year of worshipping at home. A year full of uncertainty as we continue to take faith steps forward during the trying times of a pandemic. Perhaps the uncertainty of our walk during the past year, gives us a glimpse into uncertain road the disciples walked with Jesus — as he entered Jerusalem on Palm Sunday and continued his journey toward the cross. Despite everything happening around you, will you join Christ on the road to the resurrection this week? “The Road to Resurrection”  - Rev.

Spring Cleaning!

Spring Cleaning!

2021-03-2234:09

It is time for some spring cleaning! That’s the message of the Psalmist today as he writes: create in me a clean heart and renew a right spirit within me. As we tackle closets and baseboards that have been ignored all winter, let’s imagine what it would be like for God to clean up our spiritual lives. Lord, fix our hearts so that we do our parts in Your restoration work in this world. “Spring Cleaning!”  - Rev.

But God …

But God …

2021-03-1528:44

As our journey toward the cross continues, Ephesians 2 reminds us how much we need the cross, how much we need a crucified savior and how much we need resurrection power. The truth is: we all have sinned and we all will sin again. We can give thanks that God’s goodness does not depend on our goodness. God is full of love and mercy and that makes a world of difference!

Although he had plenty of opportunities to show frustration, disappointment, anger, we hardly ever see Jesus upset in scripture. The one occasion we see Christ’s temper flare, was sparked by how people were behaving in the temple. if Christ showed up to the temple of our lives today, what would he find us doing? Let’s not wait for Jesus to get in a table-flipping mood to get our house and God’s house in order. "I Know What Prayer Can Do” - Rev.

Generational Blessings

Generational Blessings

History is always being written. Around the breakfast table. Every day at school or work and in our communities. Every day we make decisions that will have a positive or negative impact on the generations to come. And so it was with the children of Israel, when God said: choose life, so that you and your children will be blessed. What life-giving choices are you making that will yield generational blessings?

Welcome to the journey of Lent! Only God knows where the Spirit will lead us in these 40 days leading up to Easter. Just as Christ was driven into the wilderness, tested and tempted -- it's likely we will have our own set of trials this season. If you're a traveler, you know that before we take off on an adventure, there are preparations to be made. Life in Christ is a great adventure; so, let's use the Lenten Season -- as the early Christians did -- to prepare our minds, bodies and spirits to walk with the Lord."Welcome to the Journey!" - Rev.

The time the disciples experienced on the mountain with Jesus was a WOW moment that forever marked their lives! Our lives are changed on the mountains, yet, they are lived in the valleys. Do you spend time meeting with Jesus on the mountain — through prayer, song and the Word of God?

The Negro National Anthem encourages us to sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us; sing a song full of the hope that the present has brought us. If we are to do that and to live as people of faith, we may have to reach back and reclaim the faith of our cultural and biblical heritage. By faith, our ancestors overcame unimaginable hardships and did amazing things empowered by the grace of God at work within them. What will we accomplish by faith -- when we learn to reach back and rise up?"Reach Back and Rise Up!" - Rev.

Shine! (Part 2)

2021-01-3126:19

The gospel according to poetry tells us that "there is always light --if only we're brave enough to see it. If only we're brave enough to be it."  Amanda Gorman's inaugural poem calls to mind Jesus' declarations that we are the light of the world and that we are sent to serve the world. Is your light on? Are you shining and serving in ways that will make a difference -- in ways that will help the kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven?"Shine! (Part 2)” - Rev.

It's time to re-think our commitment! Proverbs tells us to commit our ways to God, and God will establish our plans. Sometimes, our plans don't come to pass, because they were never God's plans. And, sometimes, we miss the mark, because we never made a full commitment. Can you imagine what would be possible if you "commit your commitments" to God this year?  It's time -- to make a plan, make no excuses, and make it happen!"Re-thinking Commitment: Make a Plan, Make No Excuses and Make It Happen” - Mrs. Rose JonesProverbs 16: 3-4aBulletin flipbook: View https://pubhtml5.com/homepage/ymvqSubscribe to Worship 1st Podcast on iTunes, Spotify, or your favorite player.

In his final sermon, Dr. King warned us against “sleeping through a revolution.” Today’s texts remind us that sometimes we can be wide awake and spiritually asleep. And still, Jesus invites us to “follow him” — to walk with him and walk like him. Let’s not be found snoozing, when God is trying to use us. "Stop Snoozing!"  "God Is Trying to Use You!” - Rev.

God tore the heavens open at Jesus' baptism to bless him with the Holy Spirit that would equip and empower him to do the hard work of redemption. The Spirit descending like a dove, may cause us to see the moment as peaceful and serene; when, in fact, it was a moment of warfare, a moment when God began to wage war with sin for our sake. Those who are baptized believers of Jesus Christ are enlisted in that same fight to redeem the world. As we celebrate Jesus' baptism and remember our own, don't forget to give thanks for God's power that it is at work in you and through you."Tearing the Heavens Open" - Rev.

The lights and decor may all be packed away, but Christmas is not quite over. This week, we celebrate Epiphany — in honor of the day the wise men, who were guided by a star, finally found the Christ Child. They worshipped and presented their gifts — just as we are called to do. What will you offer God in 2021? How will you be a light that leads other to the Savior? "Shine!" - Rev.

The Set Time

2020-12-2826:32

For generations and generations, prophets pointed to the time when Christ would come. Then, when the set time came - Jesus was born of a woman, under the law, to save all of us who would one day struggle to keep the law. What a gift to the world! We may have wanted to rush the promises of God in 2020, but it seems divine blessings require divine timing - and are worth the wait."The Set Time" - Rev.

Love Came Down

What a surprise the angel’s announcement must have been for Mary! Sure — she was expecting the Messiah like everyone else; but, there’s no way she was expecting to be the vessel chosen for God’s love to come down to earth.

Joy to the World!

Joy to the world -- the Lord has come (and is coming again)! Psalm 126 reminds us that even amidst the discord and despair in our world -- there can and will be joy. And just because there is joy, doesn't mean we have to ignore our pain. In fact, the tears we cry, the sorrow we have will serve as seeds of transformation and restoration, when we trust God with them. “Joy to the World!”  -  Rev.
