Jesus Rejected At Nazareth :: BIBLE STORIES

Presented at Curwensville Alliance on 6/12/22 by Pastor Steve Shields.

There are two types of contempt, blatant and subtle.

Subtle contempt can be non-engagement, casual engagement or distracted engagement.

The problem with contempt is it prevents you from honoring God. It prevents you from receiving blessing and it increases pain in life.

The keys to avoiding contempt are to keep your perspective of God fresh. Get to know God more deeply. Practice saying yes to God.

Choose to avoid the subtle contempt that may creep into your spiritual life.

The Royal Official’s Son :: BIBLE STORIES

Presented at Curwensville Alliance on 6/5/22 by Pastor Steve Shields.

Why would Jesus make this point in John 4:48 “Unless you people see signs and wonders,” Jesus told him, “you will never believe.”?

None of them are coming to Him, and it is an “outsider” who comes to Jesus. Jesus wants us to bring Him our needs. Because when we bring Him our needs, we bring our hearts.

Pastor Steve discusses a Biblical understanding of belief. Belief is not something I manufacture. It is not something I psych up in myself. It is not a leap of faith. It is not just nodding my head.

Instead, Biblical belief is a choice to trust Jesus!

Jesus invites you to trust Him. He invites you because He wants your heart. He invites you because it is the only way to really live.

You respond to His invitation by genuinely desiring His help, and genuinely desiring HIM!
