This week Pastor Josh continues teaching on being rooted in God. The Holy Spirit draws us near to God, we are confronted with the reality of Jesus Christ, his sacrifice on a cross for our sins. We repent of our sins and are forgiven. 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. 2 Corinthians 5:17
With a loving and trusting relationship in tact, our pursuit of knowledge becomes about deepening our faith not just in deepening our information base.
This week Pastor Josh continues the discussion on being rooted in doctrine, specifically God. He tackles the question, "Is there a God, and can I know him?"
This week Pastor Josh speaks on being rooted in doctrine, specifically Scripture.
16 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17
This week Pastor Josh begins a series in our Rooted theme on Doctrine. When there is a lack of doctrinal depth in a church, you get communities of people who are culturally Christian because they know what to do but lack spiritual depth. When we have a better understanding of the whole of scripture rather than just any given section at any given time, we will better be able to apply complete truths to our lives. The task of the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20) is not limited to reaching the lost but in also teaching the truth.
Pastor Josh teaches from Colossians 1:15-19 and Luke 14:25-33, on what it means to be rooted in discipleship. Discipleship is not a passive attachment to church or Jesus, it is a whole life commitment to both Jesus and his mission. Unless we are fully devoted to Jesus, He makes it clear that we cannot be His disciple.
