The Chaotic Cookout
Series: (All)
How do we respond to chaotic times? Are we even equipped for some of the toughest tasks we may face? The disciples were probably asking themselves similar questions when they were faced with a crowd of hungry, tired people. Jesus could have snapped his fingers and taken care of it, but instead he turned to the disciples and asked them to deal with it. We may want to take note of this story and see if it something we may need to apply to our lives today. Visit redeemerbythesea.org/online-worship for more information!

    A Spirit-Filled Church
    Series: (All)
    Jesus promised to give the Holy Spirit to His disciples after He returned to His Father.  That promise is fulfilled at Pentecost.  Acts Chapter 2 records this amazing one-time experience that took place in Jerusalem 50 days after Jesus celebrated the Passover with His Disciples. And yet, each of the members of Christ’s Body, the Church, receives the Holy Spirit even today through faith and baptism.  What does it mean to be “Spirit-filled” and how does the indwelling of the Holy Spirit affect us as individuals, and as a church? My Next Step(s): - I will not resist the Holy Spirit in my life, but rather seek to hear His voice and follow His leading. - I will witness boldly about what Christ has done for me. - I will discover my Spiritual Gift(s) and use it/them for the common good. - I will live a Spirit-filled, holy life, set apart and dedicated to God’s glory.

    Easter
    Series: (All)
    Happy Easter! Christ the Lord is Risen Today - Alleluia! In spite of some of the Christians you’ve met or done business with, in spite of revivals and scandals, in spite of how you view the Bible, and in spite of your church experience, you should consider putting your faith in Jesus as your Savior. Why? It has nothing to do with your personal experience and everything to do with what the disciples saw that first Easter! My Next Step(s): ○ I am putting my faith and trust in Jesus as my Lord and Savior. ○ I will further explore the claims of Jesus. ○ I will share with others the significance of Jesus’ resurrection. ○ I will not fear — because I know that I have eternal life in Jesus!

    Hope in The Midst of Turmoil
    Series: (All)
    The prophet Habakkuk protests God's seeming inaction in the face of injustice and violence: the wicked thrive at the expense of the righteous. Habakkuk listens and God responds: "The righteous shall live by faith."  The gift of faith by which we receive through God's Word and the Holy Spirit is to be lived one day at a time and is something to be practiced, not taken for granted. We are each a mysterious combination of our families, teachers, friends, and experiences. Paul invites us to fan into flame the gifts of God we receive through the people in our lives. Not all gifts feel like blessings. Some are the traumas and losses we inevitably undergo. Even so, we have not been given a spirit of fear, but of power and love and self-control. Jesus invites us to let forgiveness, faith, and service become our daily habit. By following in Jesus’ way, we are empowered to freely share that love with every person we meet.

    Taunt & Triumph
    Series: (All)
    When it comes to our faith, the world in which we live is filled more frequently with taunts than with triumphs. They are far more likely to cry out “If you are the Son of God” (as in Luke 23:35 & 37), rather than “The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation” as in Paul’s epistle to the Colossians 1:15. As we turn the page to a new church year, we end the narration of the greatest story in all history, and in so doing we signal the new beginning that story promises all of us. The triumph speaks louder than the taunts!

    The Israel king David wrote in Psalm 27:8: “Your face, LORD, do I seek.” (ESV) As forgiven and beloved children of God who come to close to God our gracious Father with faith in our Savior Jesus and through the power of the Spirit our desire is to glorify God and to genuinely bring God pleasure and joy – instead of selfishly seeking God’s “hand” (symbolically) for some kind of spiritual “handout.” We don’t come to a worship service expecting to “get something” but rather to give ourselves, serve with our abilities, and with our hearts, minds and voices praising and thanking God who comes among us to bless us with His presence, acceptance, forgiveness, love and peace! We celebrate God and His victory for us!
