A Crucified Life
Build up in Christ
by Pastor Darby Paris
2M ago
Topics: Discipline, Holiness Big Idea of the Message: The desires of the flesh are directly opposed to the desires of the Spirit. Application Point: We cannot do what our flesh wants and also serve the Spirit; we must choose which we will elevate.  Galatians 5:16-26, 6:7-8; Romans 6:12-13, 8:18-19 "Discipline, for the Christian, begins with the body. We have only one. It is this body that is the primary material given to us for sacrifice. We cannot give our hearts to God & keep our bodies for ourselves." - Elisabeth Elliot https://linktr.ee/thresholdchurchchrist Support the show ..read more

Living in our Newness
Build up in Christ
by Pastor Darby Paris
4M ago
Text: 2 Cor 5:17-18; 2 Samuel 11; 2 Samuel 12:1-15; Psalm 51 Topic: Repentance, living in your newness Big Idea of the Message: When you slip up, repent and ask God to help you; don’t use it as an excuse to give into more sin.  The new life of devotion to Christ means one has new attitudes and actions. Why do most New Year resolutions fail? Usually, we slip up once and then use that mistake as an excuse to slip up again and again. In our journey to become more like Christ, we can fall down. When that happens, it’s important to repent—not give up. Support the show ..read more

The Word of God about friendships
Build up in Christ

Friendship is a mutual relationship characterized by intimacy, faithfulness, trust, unmotivated kindness, and service. The concept can describe one’s relationship with people and with God. Obviously, we are affected most by those to whom we are closest. It is why there is such a heavy emphasis by Solomon on choosing close friends carefully & when you find some great ones---sticking together for the long haul. Support the show ..read more

Freedom in the Bible/ Libertad en la Biblia
Build up in Christ
by Pastor Darby Paris

As the United States of America celebrates Independence Day on July 4, it’s worth noting the nation was founded upon the idea that God created human beings to be free. The Declaration of Independence states that people “are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” But what is “liberty,” exactly? Is freedom based upon the country where you live, or can it have a deeper meaning? We as believers have to look at the word freedom thru a Kingdom lens. Mientras los Estados Unidos de América celebran el Día de la Indepe ..read more

Worship
Build up in Christ

The church that does not operate under the biblical theology of worship is in danger of failing to give God glory and failing to offer worship that is pleasing to Him.  Contrary to popular belief, worship does not begin and end with the singing portion of our church services. Worship is also not limited to bowing in reverence before God. To begin with, worship is determined by God Himself. Recommended reading:  Life Together by Bonhoeffer I will by Rainer ..read more

Signs of a healthy church
Build up in Christ
by Darby Paris
1y ago
No church is perfect. It’s full of imperfect people who come together for a common goal: to love Jesus and to talk about Him to those who don’t know Him. The Church is the body of Christ and, as such, is charged to carry out His work in the world. Before Jesus ascended back into heaven, He gave the disciples the Great Commission: "Go therefore and make disciples(reproduce) of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age(Jesus' 2nd comin ..read more
