Pastor Bob Arnold’s Final Four Sermons
September 3 (Labor Day Weekend) – “Shameless Audacity” – Luke 11:5-13
Focuses on encouragement to be bold in asking for, seeking after, and knocking on the door of spiritual wisdom, insight and gifts.
September 10 (Stewardship Sermon) – “Where Your Heart Will Be” – Matthew 6:19-24
Focuses on the notion that our hearts end up attaching to whatever it is we treasure and pursue. We think it goes the other way around, but our hearts will actually gravitate to where we invest our time, talent, treasure, and energy. Similarly, what you come to own will come to own you. You cannot be owned by God and owned by worldly riches at the same time.
September 17, 2017 – “Think About Such Things” – Philippians 4:4-8
Focuses on the importance of choosing deliberately to focus on what is good and positive and true to the peace of our own souls and to our ability to rejoice in God regardless of the situation.
September 24, 2017 (The Bean Thing) – “God Gives the Growth” – 1 Corinthians 3:5-17
Focuses on the notion that all growth of the church comes from God, God working through persons to be sure, but primarily from God. Keeping a foundation on Jesus Christ and guarding the community as the temple of the Holy Spirit are all that matters.
