Sermon Description

In our text, Paul addresses a troubling attitude developing among a minority of believers in the Thessalonian church. While they had a strong reputation for brotherly love, some among them were selfishly exploiting kindness and embracing idleness. From this brief passage, we can identify three practical principles concerning the brotherly love that ought to flourish in the church.

Sermon Description

There is no culturally neutral way of doing church. Once we choose a song to sing or a language to preach in, we’ve made it easier for some and harder for others to worship and live out their faith with us. But the guiding principles in today’s passage compel us to at least try – to try to address cultural barriers that unintentionally offend or alienate others.

Sermon Description

A church that fails to fight sin in its midst is failing its job to love and protect. Even if a member appears to make peace with his sin, we must continue the fight through  church discipline. That means fighting sin in the lives of our members even if it means fighting without their help.

Sermon Description

To the world, the idea of church discipline sounds judgmental, hypercritical, and unloving. But to the Bible, church discipline is how fellow church members love you and oversee your discipleship to Christ.

Sermon Description

What difference does church membership make to my everyday discipleship to Christ? Outside of an occasional vote, we would be hard pressed for an answer. Our hope is to recover a vision of life together, as the church, where membership is a meaningful aspect of our lives.

Sermon Description

It’s sad, and even a bit scary, to know that you can love God’s truth and love helping others learn it – without ever really loving God or others.
