Do we know what love is? We often think it is a feeling or something you fall into. But, love is a choice and something you do. We learn in the 'Love Chapter' how we are to love and how we are not to. We are reminded in Colossians to choose to put off the old self and put on love. We also remember that Christ loved us first and is waiting and longing for us to love him back! What will you do today?
We will gather with joy and thanksgiving this Lord's Day to worship Him while having our hearts and minds brought to focus on missions. We bring our missions emphasis week with two sermons from Acts 2. In the morning we see "The Missionary God" from Acts 2.11. This is such a rich passage - 2.1-13 with our focus on 2.11. Come with excitement to refocus on God's mission. Scripture Reading: Genesis 11.1-9; Acts 2.1-13
Text: Acts 2.11
Message: "The Missionary God"
Theme: This merciful act of God reveals Who is behind every missionary endeavor

Pastor walks his children through Westminster Shorter Catechism question 107—especially explaining how God's glory shapes our prayers' purpose, petitions, and power.
Q107. What doth the conclusion of the Lord's prayer teach us? The conclusion of the Lord's prayer, which is, "For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever, Amen," teacheth us to take our encouragement in prayer from God only, and in our prayers to praise Him, ascribing kingdom, power and glory to Him. And in testimony of our desire, and assurance to be heard, we say, "Amen."
How should the believer handle temptation to sin?

Paul's Passion to Overcome Conflict_12 Acts 15:36-41After some time teaching and preaching in Antioch, Paul wanted to visit the brethren in the cities they had traveled to on his first missionary journey. Barnabas was willing but determined to take John Mark. Paul insisted they should not take John because he left them on the first trip. Unable to reconcile, Barnabas took John and sailed to Cyprus, while Paul took Silas, and with commendation from the brethren in Antioch went through Syria and Cilicia strengthening the churches.Wise leaders anticipate conflict. They know it has been part of ministry leadership since the founding of the church.God takes care of His hurting servants when they are faithful to their call and ministry. Paul is a dynamic example in continuing on despite being bombarded with setback after setback.How can we passionately return to our first love with God?
Remember your roots. Return to His Word. Remove all other love. To "re-turn" to God, we must "turn away" from competing lovers. ...
Rest in His companionship.
What is God's Love Language? Have you ever considered how we show God we love him? Obedience is what we are called to. By being obedient to him we prove our love for him, glorify him in a fallen world, and allow him to demonstrate his love and devotion for us. We do this not because we have to, but because we want to. Obedience above acts of service, gifts, quality time, or words of affirmation (praise) God deserves and expects our obedience. Our obedience to him is how we express and communicate our love love; obedience is God's Love Language.
