God Himself, Working in You, and Me (1 Thessalonians 5:22-28)

April 06, 2014

Pastor Rich Chapman   Length: 40:06 (36.9 MB)

We are to avoid evil, but we do not have to do it alone. The Holy Spirit is working in us and God will never give up on us; He is faithful to complete the work of sanctification, which began on the cross. Dwell not on past sin, but on Him who is able.

Do Not Put Out the Spirit's Fire (1 Thessalonians 5:19-21)

March 30, 2014

Pastor Rich Chapman   Length: 40:43 (37.4 MB)

When Christians say no to God, it may be because they are afraid of the refining fire of the Spirit. Rather than resist, we should pray for that fire to burn ever hotter. We can feed it, and warm our cold hearts, with the fuel of His word.

Joyful, Prayerful, Thankful (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)

March 23, 2014

Pastor Rich Chapman   Length: 33:58 (31.2 MB)

God has given us the precious ability to be joyful always through obedience and by abiding in His love, to be prayerful continually as we have an ongoing conversation with God, and to be thankful in all things because the Lord is good.

Forgiveness or Revenge? (1 Thessalonians 5:15)

March 16, 2014

Pastor Rich Chapman   Length: 43:39 (40.1 MB)

Rather than bear a grudge, forgive those who have hurt you. Not only forgive, but also bless them from your heart. Though we cannot do this on our own, God will give us the ability. A life lived without forgiving is a prison.

One Size Doesn't Fit All (1 Thessalonians 5:14)

March 09, 2014

Pastor Rich Chapman   Length: 23:35 (21.7 MB)

Each of us as Christians has different struggles and different strengths. We should use our strengths to help our brothers in Christ. Today's verse gives four examples of how we can lift others up, but they require that we sacrifice our time.

The Cost of Discipleship (Luke 9:57-62)

March 02, 2014

Alex Morse   Length: 40:37 (37.3 MB)

How valuable is Jesus to you? The way we follow Jesus shows how much or little we value Him. The cost of following Jesus is to carry our cross daily. There will always be things that compete for our attention, but none more valuable than Him.

1 Thessalonians 5:12-13

February 23, 2014

Pastor Rich Chapman   Length: 46:48 (43 MB)

Godly leaders are recognized by their service. They lead by example and do not neglect their own time for God. We are instructed to love, respect and esteem those Christian leaders whom God has appointed. Most importantly, we must pray for them.

Rescued! From What? (1 Thessalonians 5:9-11)

February 16, 2014

Pastor Rich Chapman   Length: 32:19 (29.7 MB)

The Bible makes it clear that there is a terrible day of God's wrath coming, a necessary consequence of His justice. Jesus took that wrath upon himself and we are rescued from it. Such news should be a great encouragement to all believers!

The lights are on and Jesus is home! (1 Thessalonians 5:4-8)

February 09, 2014

Pastor Rich Chapman   Length: 39:52 (36.7 MB)

While we are on this earth, Jesus makes His home within us and His light must shine on others through us. When we enter our final home, taking with us only those good deeds offered up to Jesus, He again provides the light.

When? BE READY! (1 Thessalonians 5:1-3)

February 02, 2014

Pastor Rich Chapman   Length: 27:57 (25.7 MB)

The early church was curious about the dates of things to come but Paul reminded them that that day would come without warning. For the unbeliever it will be a dreadful day, but the believer receives power through the spirit to witness until then.
