How can you can prepare for Sunday’s sermon? By reading Revelation 4-5. One of my good friends is visiting the area this week and I’d ask him to preach the Word to us.

That said, you’re not going to want to miss what God has in store for us from His Word!

How To Prepare For This Sunday, 08/19/2018

Prepare for Sunday’s sermon by reading Colossians 3:22-4:1. For the remainder of our time in Colossians I hope to show you that if we’re confident in Christ we’ll view relationships differently. After several weeks considering the relationships within the Christian home, this Sunday we’ll discuss a messy relationship that was widespread in the ancient world: the relationship between slaves and their masters. I hope to show you that Christians are called to think and live differently, even when they’re involved in unjust situations. If you’re confident in Christ, your life will look different even when your circumstances don’t.

Here’s a few specific ways to prepare for Sunday:

1) Pray and ask God to work in you for His glory.

10 Applications to Suffering from Pastor Michael Boutot

Facing Struggles: I Want to Fly Like an Eagle

Pastor Michael R. Boutot

 

10 APPLICATIONS

 

1. We are never told Christianity was the EASY way out; in fact, we are promised TRIALS and TRIBULATIONS.

 

2. While God can heal anyone and anything, God does not necessarily want everyone healed.

 

3. God may be trying to teach us something through our suffering.

 

4. God may allow suffering, but there are times He orchestrates suffering.

 

5. It is important that we learn to be content in and through our suffering.

 

6. We can be a tremendous witness and testimony by how we handle our suffering.  

 

7. Suffering can often be a method used by God to humble us.

 

8. God desires to be magnified and glorified in and through our suffering.

 

9. We can handle our burdens ALONE…with others….or sharing a YOKE  with Christ.

 

10. Sharing Jesus’ yoke is the best way to find real REST and PEACE.
