How Do We Use Our Gifts for God?

This is a brief message from Advance College Conference in Raleigh, NC. You can read the manuscript below:

I want to speak to you very briefly about using our gifts for the glory of Jesus.

Have you ever heard kids ask questions? They have an amazing curiosity that seems to have no end. That magical questionwhycan go on for hours and hours. I have friends who’s kids are in this stage right now. Well it seems that there’s a little child in my soul that likes to ask why, but it’s not about abstract questions, it’s about everyday things.

I’m not very easily motivated. There are some people who are naturally driven, and the fact that something needs to get done is enough motivation for them. My wife is one of those people; I am not.

In order for me to get anything done, I need the sense that I’m doing something grand. “But if I take this trash out, will the trash man get saved?” I’m a big picture guy, and I’m rarely drawn to details or tedious tasks. Unfortunately, details and tedious tasks are the majority of real life. This is probably why I struggled

上帝嘅完美憤怒

Here’s a sermon I preached recently on Psalm 95:10-11. My 3 points were simple:

我. 罪激起神的憤怒

II. Sin is an Alernate Path

三. Sin keeps us from God’s rest

I pray this is an encouragement to you

上帝嘅完美憤怒

我想讀 D 先引语. 所以, 只要仔細聽, 諗吓你是否同意講咩.

"憤怒只存在於愚人的懷中。愛因斯坦

"憤怒係短暫嘅癲。霍勒斯

"無論從憤怒中開始, 都以羞愧告終。本杰明·富兰克林

"永遠唔好做任何事" [出於憤怒], 因為你會做錯一切。套用

憤怒唔係我哋通常渴望嘅性格特徵之一. 沒有人喜歡憤怒. 憤怒導致辛酸同懷恨在心. 憤怒導致死火的決定. 憤怒有時甚至導致暴力. D 人通常唔肯同一個隨時都可能飛走嘅人一齊. 睇黎有 D 唔穩定.

但係係我既問題: 上帝會嬲嗎?? 有咩能讓宇宙中上帝沸騰嗎?? 嗯, 我諗我哋今晚嘅文章就解決呢個問題.

背景

你唔需要同我一起轉身. 係出境遊 17, 以色列人試著試天神, 好似佢哋唔可以信靠佢. 喺佢同佢哋做咗咁多之後, 令佢哋成為佢嘅人民, 將佢哋從奴隷製中解救出來, 為佢哋提供, 等等, 佢哋仲係唔信任佢. So they fight with

3 Ways to Deny God

Have you denied the God of the Universe? Believe it or not, this is an important question for all of us to think about. It’s clear in Scripture that eternal life is freely given to those who trust God and believe His Good News, and just judgment is carried out on those who deny Him. But there is more than one way to deny God. Here are three that I found in the New Testament.

1. Denying that Jesus is Who He said He Was
Who is the liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? That is the antichrist, he who denies the Father and the Son. No one who denies the Son has the Father. Whoever confesses the Son has the Father also.

1 約翰 2:22-23

There are many people in our world today who think of themselves as spiritual or even religious people. They believe that God exists, and they attempt to worship him in their own way. Maybe they even see Jesus as a great teacher or a prophet from God. But if they don’t believe that Jesus is who HE said He is, they are denying Him.

Seeing Jesus merely as a great moral teacher is still

How Are We Righteous In The Sight Of God?

How are we righteous in the sight of God? It is assuredly in the same respect in which Christ was a sinner. For he assumed in a manner our place, that he might be a criminal in our room, and might be dealt with as a sinner, not for his own offenses, but for those of others, inasmuch as he was pure and exempt from every fault, and might endure the punishment that was due to us- not to himself. It is in the same manner, assuredly, that we are now righteous in him- not in respect of our rendering satisfaction to the justice of God by our own works, but because we are judged of in connection with Christ’s righteousness, which we have put on by faith, that it might become ours.

Read this slowly and let it sink in! I came across this quote while preparing for my message on 2 Corinthians 5:18-21 for the Campus Outreach National Conference. Good stuff
