PODCAST: Bless Yourself by Influencing Others

Presented at Curwensville Alliance by Pastor Steve on 7/26/2015

When you think back on life, do you see certain people who influenced you for the better? People who helped you grow closer to God. People who kept you from the wrong path. People who encouraged you to take faith-filled risks.

You may not know this, but in influencing you, they were not just giving you a blessing. They were receiving a blessing as well. Every healthy relationship is marked by two-way influence. And when you influence another for Christ, you find yourself receiving, just as you were giving.

This podcast, from 1 Thessalonians, explains it.


PODCAST: Marks of Credible Ministries

Presented July 12, 2015 by Pastor Steve Shields at Curwensville Alliance Church

We live in a day where it’s hard to discern credibility. We’re actually bombarded by people making claims regarding political figures, scientific controversies, and faith issues. Perhaps more than any generation previous, ours is one that requires extensive use of brain power in order to sort through the myriad of opinions coming our way.

Or maybe not. Maybe this is a more timeless problem than we might imagine. Over and over, when reading the New Testament, you come across passages that help you distinguish trustworthy teaching from the rest. Could it be that this problem be one that every person in every generation must address?

In his writings, the Apostle Paul was sometimes placed in the awkward position of being forced to defend himself, or to establish some credibility. As he does this, under the leading of the Holy Spirit, we get a picture of what credible ministers and ministries look like.

This podcast looks at the opening verses of 1 Thessalonians 2, and uncovers some marks of credible ministries.
