Sermon – How to go to Church: FOMO – Fear of Missing Out! (1 Cor 8:1-13 & 10:23-11:1)

Read the text – 1 Corinthians 8:1-13 & 1 Corinthians 10:23-11:1

As a society we have never had more freedom, yet we often use that freedom to serve ourselves. The Corinthian Church know they are free in Christ, but they use this freedom to love themselves and not others. How will we, who are free in Christ, use our freedom? Will we follow our society and the Corinthian Church by loving ourselves? Or will we use our freedom to build up the church in love?

In this Bible Talk, Nick Lindeback looks at the how some actions are permissible for the Christian person and not not inherently sinful, but in exercising that action may cause others to stumble (thus sin) in their faith. The point: consider whether your actions are loving to other fellow Christians before doing them.

Sermon #4 – Gideon the weak judge

Many of us “know” the story about Gideon -how he successfully defeated the massive Midianite army, confusing them with trumpets and hidden torches. But do we really understand what happened? Listen to Ken Noakes, has he helps us understand from the book of Judges what Gideon was really like and what we need to learn about trusting in our sovereign God and not relying on human wisdom.
