2019Q3 – Lesson 12 - To Love Mercy - The Burnt Out of the Christian

To Love Mercy

The Burnt Out of the Christian - Are you ministry fatigued?

In Matthew 6:25-33 Christ tells us that God looks after all His creation. The passage even speaks about the birds and the flowers which are looked after by Him. The passage concludes that those who worry are the wicked, but His followers are not to worry about tomorrow nor our physical needs for God has them all covered. Then God says, but seek ye kingdom of God and His righteousness and all those physical needs will be met by the sufferer.

So, there are two things here... if we are not to worry about our physical needs (being hungry, needing clothing, shelter, etc) because Hid covers such needs... Why do we then worry about doing this stuff ourselves. Why should we be meeting the needs of others..? That’s God’s job!?!?… We shouldn't do anything, should we?...

Join this episode as we unpack this ideas, and more… and learn about the Sparks Seventh Day Adventist Church's ministry

Biblical Psychology - S1E7 - Psychology, ADHD, and Medication ft Ryan Becker (Absurdity Podcast)

Psychology, ADHD, and Medication ft. Ryan Becker (Absurdity Podcast)

Is Christianity catching up to our mental health needs?

“Psychology showed us that sin has more deeper effects than we thought”

Brain chemical imbalances can play havoc against someone’s  Christian experience… for some people, medication has increased people’s ability to access God’s voice without having such imbalances blurred down their mental clarity.

REMEMBER: If you feel hopeless, helpless, and carry some guilt and shame, it is highly advisable for you to contact a mental health help line in your country of residence. Or better still, go to see your primary health care provider like a GP and share with them how you feel. If you feel so distressed before, during, or after this program call your local emergency line. Do you know how to call your emergency service like an ambulance in your local country, city, or town? For example, in Australia this is triple zero ('000') and in America is nine 911. And remember, God loves you, and so do we!

Character Building - Killing Pathfinders - The Unlikely and Stoppable Pathfinder

Killing Pathfinders - The Unlikely and Stoppable Pathfinder

Character building ideas where everything was against all odds...

For I am certain that not death, or life, or angels, or rulers, or things present, or things to come, or powers, Or things on high, or things under the earth, or anything which is made, will be able to come between us and the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” - Romans 8:38-39

You will face struggles and obstacles… supernatural forces will try to stop you, but as you contend to this influences, supernatural help will come to you. All the intelligences of heaven are in God’s army, and more than just angels are in these ranks. God Himself is there leading, The Holy Spirit representative of Jesus Christ here on earth was sent to you today to make you unstoppable.

God’s hands are never tied. His message is never muted. No matter what opposition is thrown in its path, when the Pathfinders and Adventurers are what Christ intends them to be, it will be flat-out an unstoppable force for God.

I have chosen to be part of God’s unstoppable pathfinders team for Christ!

What about you?
