Sermon Notes-8:30 & 9:30 Services-Rev. Riley
“From Grumbling to Graciousness”
1. Grumbling is not very flattering-like the Israelites of old, we forget the graciousness of God in our lives.
2. Grumbling is a sign of life B.C. (Before Christ)
3. Grumbling can change to graciousness through Jesus Christ.
Sermon Notes-10:45 Service-Rev. Phillips
“Tarzan He Was Not”
1. We can only be what Christ has called us to be by remaining on constant fellowship with him.
2. The purpose of prayer is to help us keep a fresh connection with Christ.
Words of Love
Jesus is the measuring stick for the words of love:
He spoke words of tenderness: “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you
rest.” (Matthew 11:28)
*He spoke words of peace: “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you” (John 14:27).
*He spoke words of hope: “In my Father’s house are many rooms” (John 14:2).
*He spoke words of forgiveness: :Father, forgive them” (Luke 23:34)
*He spoke words of love: A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; even as I have loved you….By this all persons will know that you are my disciples.” ( John 13:34,35).
Jesus constructively criticized the wrong and strongly defended the right, but always there was love and mercy. And when He spoke, people heard and saw God.
This is our calling: to so speak that our words reflect kindness, appreciation, and love; to so speak that people can hear through our feeble words, the eternal word of God; to so speak that our words fill the air-not with the sounds of hate or hostility, not with the sounds of temper or cruelty, not with the sounds of jealousy or vengeance or self-pity, but with the words of life-the words of love!
Happy Mother’s Day!
