Father, Preserve Those Left Behind

John 17:11 Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name

The Sermon: John 17: 11b-19 Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name–the name you gave me–so that they may be one as we are one. 12While I was with them, I protected them and kept them safe by that name you gave me. None has been lost except the one doomed to destruction so that Scripture would be fulfilled. 13 “I am coming to you now, but I say these things while I am still in the world, so that they may have the full measure of my joy within them. 14 I have given them your word and the world has hated them, for they are not of the world any more than I am of the world. 15 My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. 16They are not of the world, even as I am Read More …

Set Your Heart on Things Above

Don't Be a Spiritual Fool

Listen to the sermon: Sermon…………………………Colossians 3:1-4 Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.   Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. Set Your Heart on Things Above 1. Because you have died and risen with Christ 2. Because your sinful nature seeks to drag you down 3. Because that is where you will spend eternity with Christ
