Pastor Rob is starting a new summer series called Ten where we explore the Ten Commandments. It’s so important for us to understand that the commandments were not given by an angry God who is demanding our obedience, but rather they were given by a God that was inviting the nation of Israel into a relationship with Him. Over the next 11 weeks, it is our prayer that we will all see that God’s law was not given as a means for us to prove our love for God, but as evidence of God’s love for us.
Ten // In The Name
Pastor Rob Rogers | June 20, 2021
In Part 4, Pastor Rob covers the third commandment – You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain. As one of the most misunderstood commandments, Pastor Rob shares that while it certainly means that we should not use God’s name flippantly or irreverently, it is so much more than that. If we look at it only from that perspective, our obedience becomes about the rule itself rather than why the rule was created. The third commandment is also telling us to not put God’s “stamp of approval” on something that God has absolutely nothing to do with – don’t leverage the name of God for your selfish purposes. Are there things in your life that you know God is not pleased with and you know it’s sin and you know that God knows it is sin, but you’re using the grace and forgiveness of God as a way to excuse your sin?
Ten // Make No Idols
Pastor Jimmy Harris | June 13, 2021
This week, Pastor Jimmy continues our Ten series through the Ten Commandments with “make no idols.” This commandment can be confused with last week’s, which was “no other gods.” A god is something that you place your trust in to take care of you and protect you, whereas, an idol is anything that diminishes, competes with, or distracts you from the one true God. We all have idols, but Pastor Jimmy teaches us that before we even start trying to deal with the unholy idolatry in our life, we need to make a place and a time to be with the Lord. It’s His presence, not our plan that is going to make the biggest difference in your life.
Ten // No Other Gods
Pastor Jimmy Harris | June 6, 2021
In Ten // No Other Gods, Pastor Jimmy speaks on the first commandment – no other gods. The first part of the message gives a vision for why we need to follow the Ten Commandments and meditate on them as a regular practice in our life. The second part of the message is all about “no other gods.” A god is something that you place your trust in to take care of you and protect you.
Ten // Introduction
Pastor Rob Rogers | May 30, 2021
In Part 1 of Ten, Pastor Rob gives an introduction to the new summer series. The commandments were not given by an angry God, who was demanding obedience, but rather they were given by a God who was inviting the nation of Israel into a relationship with Himself. Before He gave a single law or commandment, He chose, delivered, and saved the nation of Israel. He gives us the commandments not for His own benefit, but for ours.
