Preparing For The Next Thing :: BIBLE STORIES

Presented at Curwensville Alliance on 1/30/22 by Pastor Steve Shields.

Since life is always changing, how can we be prepared for the next thing in life?

We can choose to belong to God.

When we are in the midst of change, we can remember God’s work in our past. He is always faithful.

We can choose to trust God.

We can choose to worship God. This means God in enthroned in all we do, not just part of our lives on Sunday.

The Ten Commandments Conclusion :: THE TEN COMMANDMENTS – BIBLE STORIES

Presented at Curwensville Alliance on 1/16/22 by Pastor Steve Shields.

The Ten Commandments were given by God as a guidebook on life to the Israelites. As we look back at the Ten Commandments that we discussed in detail, we see that God wants us to make Him the priority in our life.

No other gods before Me – your Father knows what you need before you even ask!
Put away idols – destroy them (if you can). Reprioritize your life!
Honor God’s Name – watch how you live as you bear His name.
Remember the Sabbath – make “sabbathing” a verb.
Honor your father and mother – show them their value.
Do not murder – choose love!
Honoring marriage commitments – marriage is designed to show the love, the purity, the faithfulness, and the holiness of God – of Christ and His church.
You shall not steal – it is a matter of trusting God and setting aside greed.
No false testimony – no worthless words. Be a person who values truth.
You shall not covet – be joyful when others are blessed.

God gives us these commandments because He loves us. You can live without these commandments, but you can’t live your best life without them.

The Ten Commandments point to the cross. We cannot keep these commands without Him. They show us we have a need for God.

All Of Jesus For All The World

Presented at Curwensville Alliance on 01/02/22 by Pastor Steve Shields.

You and I need ALL of Jesus. We are either all in or we are not. Jesus expects followers who follow.

All the world needs Jesus. We all share a struggle to “be good”. We share a Creator who gave Himself for us.

Jesus gave us all we need to give all of Him to all the world! Jesus has all authority, and He shares it with us. Jesus loves all nations. Jesus wants them to have the message. He promises to always be present.
