The quality of your love dictates the quality of your life. In 1 Corinthians 13, God gives us the exact definition of what love truly looks like. Pastors Rich and DawnCheré walk us through this definition as they continue their “Love on the Weekend” series with a sermon titled “Staying in Love.” They teach us practical ways to protect, trust, hope and persevere as we learn to love others. It’s easy to fall in love, but until we learn what love truly is, we’ll never be able to stay in love. If we want to live well, we’ll learn to love well.
While Jesus’ greatest command for us is to love Him, and love others, that command includes loving ourselves. Before we can love others, we must learn to love ourselves. Pastors Rich and DawnCheré preach together and remind us that God wants to heal our hurts, soothe our aches, and drive us towards our destinies, which He laid out before we were even born. If we want to build healthy relationships, we have to look inward first.
Have you ever missed something that was right in front of you? It's easy to miss something that you're not looking for, Pastor Rich Wilkerson, Jr. recalls in the final installment of our collection of talks on Jonah. It's easy to read the Bible and miss Jesus. Yet, as we listen, we learn how Jonah is a shadow of what is to come. There are similarities throughout scripture that all point to one thing. Our one and only truth: Jesus.
Pastor John Gray reminded us that this is not a time to be casual in our faith. It’s a time to be vigilant, passionate, and deliberate. Just as the father welcomed his son home, so should the church welcome everyone who walks through its doors, no matter what they look like or where they come from.
When God interrupts your plans, it's because he wants you to get on board with HIS plans! Find out how to align your life to his bigger purposes as Pastor Rich Wilkerson, Jr. continues his collection of talks on The Book of Jonah: From The Whale To The Worm.
We serve a God of second chances. No matter how far you wander He waits for you to seek Him and receive the calling He's placed on your life. He hasn't written you off and nothing you do can separate you from His love. Pray. Listen. Go!
In his continuing collection of talks from the Book of Jonah, Pastor Rich Wilkerson, Jr. preaches Prayers From The Fish. Much like how Jonah receives God's grace while in the stomach of a fish, we often find ourselves in a season of brokenness and can confuse God's provision with punishment. We're encouraged to know, however, that when we turn to prayer- prayer with precision, purpose, and passion- God is able to take us out of a season of desperation and into our destiny.
What are you running from, that you should be running to? When God calls us to our purpose we have an opportunity to listen and run towards it, or we can choose to run away. Do you find yourself running toward God's plan for your life, or are you looking for an excuse to choose something more comfortable? Pastor Rich Wilkerson, Jr. challenges us in a new collection of talks that we simply can't keep running away.
Often it seems it's not too long after the presents are unwraped that we can forget what the whole story of Christmas is about. This Christmas Eve, Pastor Rich Wilkerson, Jr. reminds us to hold on to Christmas— the faith that it takes to walk out our purpose, and the grace that God has given us to do so. Enjoy this special Christmas Eve message.
What are some of the dreams that God has placed in your heart? Have they faded as a result of hopelessness? Or, maybe you have stopped dreaming altogether. Pastor Rich Wilkerson Jr. continued a collection of talks about hope. Hope: having a constant expectation that God is working in our midst even when we cannot see it. In this talk, Pastor Rich outlines how we can keep our hope afloat, even when God is working behind the scenes.
