The final life app in our summer series helps us unlock the power to reverse the toxic levels of dysfuntion in some of the places and spaces we navigate everyday!
We are all designed to navigate life with others, however the direction and quality of our lives are impacted, for better and worse, by the people we go through life with. This week we looked at how our true friends make us better in the areas of life that matter most.
This week we explored Life App #4, Trust. In this message we explored that the truth about trust, is that trust is up to you. We cannot control other people or their actions. However, we can choose to assume the best in others, and choose to trust no matter how difficult the situation.
Have you ever felt like there are just not enough hours in the day? More to get done than you can possible handle, stressed out, overwhelmed, and on the verge of just giving up? I think we all have. God gave us Life App #3 Rest, to help us deal with these situations. God modeled the idea of Rest through creation and the life of Jesus. A rested heart is a ready heart, ready to love and serve.
When it comes to the practice of confession, I don’t think we always get it right. Over time, I think we’ve turned confession into something it’s not. As a result, we don’t quite deal with the sin in our life the way we should. We’ll take a look at the story of Zacchaeus in Luke 19 to see what confession truly looks like.
The cross is a constant reminder to us that we are forgiven people. But why then, are we so slow to forgive people who have hurt or wronged us? Week 2 of this series looks at how we appply forgiveness to our everyday in order to free ousleves from the grudges we hold against people who have hurt us in the past.
What good is hearing if you aren’t doing? The Bible is full of great life lessons, but they cannot help us if we do not apply them to our lives. In this series opener Pastor Kyle shares the importance of Applying God’s teaching to our everyday lives.
Pastors Remy, Kyle and Sten reflect on how their father’s impacted their lives in this special Father’s Day message at Cedarbrook Church.
