Power of Prayer
I Kings 8:22-53Power of Prayer: For Christ's Sake
This Sunday we continue to emphasize how we are shaped by prayer through our sermon series called ‘The Power of Prayer’. We often times don’t dive into a lengthy Old Testament passage, but this week we focus on part of a prayer by King Solomon. He gives a lengthy prayer in one of the most important events in the Old Testament: the dedication of the Temple.
Power of Prayer: Shameless Audacity
Luke 11:1-13Power of Prayer: Shameless Audacity
We start a new short series called the Power of Prayer. We will be exploring prayer from a few different angles. The point of this series is to help us grow as a community of prayer, recognizing that any depth or growth we seek comes through prayerful engagement with God. Prayer is the activity that reminds us of our utter dependence on God, a posture we need each step of the way together at ResLife.
You Belong: Carrying Burdens
Galatians 6:1-3You Belong: Carrying Burdens
This Sunday we wrap up our sermon series called ‘You Belong’ with perhaps the most important aspect of belonging together as a family: bearing up one another’s burdens. We wrap up this series in this way because it is the most intimate, difficult, and rewarding aspect of belonging to a church family. No one desires to grieve and suffer alone, and yet millions do each day. Millions deny the importance of belonging to community partly because our culture often turns a blind eye towards the inevitable reality of suffering and sin. But the Body of Christ calls out a different tune: We bear up one another burdens. We recognize our brokenness. We empathize in the midst of suffering because that is modeling Christ’s definition of love.
