Episode 5: Good Tree, Good Fruit. Bad Tree, Bad Fruit.
Where is your heart planted? It's all about the fruit, but good fruit will not produce in bad soil. Pastor Adam implores us to analyze the silos of our heart - where both good and bad things are stored. If things of the world are allowing bad fruit to grow in our lives, maybe it's time to survey our crops. People are attracted to good fruit.
Episode 3: The Virality of Forgiveness.
It's Youth Sunday at LJCF and following worship by the Youth Band, then 4 youth Baptisms, Student Ministries Pastor Harry Wilson explains how the pathway to freedom is forgiveness. He shows us how, through Jesus' death and resurrection, we are forgiven of much, then in genuine gratitude, we love much; and love is contagious.
Episode 2: Facing Life's Troubling Moments.
Guest pastor Dr. Smith shares the scripture in which Jesus models how to face unsettling times as He faced His own worst moment, turning to His Father instead of turning away. The steps outlined include practicing honesty, glorifying His name, and embracing the assurance that Jesus gave us as He headed to the cross.
Episode 1: The "Already-Not Yet" Mission.
To kick off this new sermon series explaining some lesser known aspects of Jesus' ministry, Small Groups Pastor, Joe Brandi, shows us one of Jesus' last acts before ascension. He commands and empowers us to make disciples based on the authority He was given from God. And Jesus assures us that He is always with us because of the Holy Spirit inside us...making us indestructible!
Sparking the Flames of Revival.
Episode 10: Fruits of the Spirit.
Freedom is one of the most underestimated weapons of spiritual warfare. We are often shackled by 2 types of bondage - self-justification (guilt, pride, shame) and unrestrained freedom (lust, greed). In this scripture, Paul shows us how to stand in battle and weaponize the fruits of the Spirit as the final episode of the Revival sermon series.
