Christianity vs. Morality

The Life Church of Des Plaines

005-paul-conversionIsaiah 64:6 “But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.”

Titus 3:5 “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;”

Paul before his conversion lived a moral life.

Gal 1:13-14 “For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews’ religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it: 14 And profited in the Jews’ religion above many my equals in mine own nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers.”

Paul tried to destroy the church of God. He was a great pharisee. He was a ruler, a teacher, a priest. He…

Wait Upon the Lord

Our continued, purposeful oneness with God is the most important thing.

The Life Church of Des Plaines

A photo by Julia Revitt. unsplash.com/photos/yypv2Tu-mxUIsaiah 40:31 “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”

Oneness WITH God is all that matters!

Jesus is all you really need. If you are seeking something else, you aren’t keeping your eyes on the Lord. What are you seeking after? If you have oneness with God, stuff falls in line.

People don’t want to wait. ‘What good does waiting do?’ cries the impatient and frustrated heart. Too often people find themselves in an impatient, complaining rut. Doubt creeps in as well.

Issues come when you’re waiting. The problem is in a misunderstanding of what ‘wait on the Lord’ really means. People have to wait, such as in a doctor’s office or a train station, but that is a different kind of ‘waiting.’

You…

Keep Your Eyes on the Lord

This message is so powerful! If you get a hold of this, it will change your life!

The Life Church of Des Plaines

Skyhawk_HMAS_Melbourne_19762 Chron 20:12 “… for we have no might against this great company that cometh against us; neither know we what to do: but our eyes are upon thee.”

In 2 Chron 20:1-2 “It came to pass after this also, that the children of Moab, and the children of Ammon, and with them other beside the Ammonites, came against Jehoshaphat to battle. 2 Then there came some that told Jehoshaphat, saying, There cometh a great multitude against thee from beyond the sea on this side Syria; and, behold, they be in Hazazontamar, which is Engedi.”

Jehoshaphat did well in all those battles. The Lord was with him, but he got scared when someone came and told him about a great multitude coming against him. The Lord had told him not to touch them and they had obeyed.

2 Chron 20:3-11 “And Jehoshaphat feared, and set himself to seek the Lord…

Overcoming Fear

My sweet Pastor’s wife preached this last night and I was so blessed!

The Life Church of Des Plaines

Guardian_Angel_1900Psalm 91:1-6 “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. 3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. 4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. 5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; 6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.”

Scripture says when you dwell in the shadow of the Almighty you shall not be afraid.

As you get older, your fears change and you call it ‘worry.’ God will deliver you…

Building on the Covenant, Understanding God’s Will

I was so blessed by this!

The Life Church of Des Plaines

photo-1463741408080-b210ee5227dc(Speaking of Jesus)…Heb 8:6  “But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.”

If you walk with the Healer, He will heal you. If you walk with the Lord, He will bless you. God cares about the big things and the little things. He loves you!

Building your life on God’s promises

It’s right to praise God no matter what. It refreshes your mind as to what is actually true. Your situation is only temporary. Praise puts your mind on things eternal. When you pray, quoting Scripture, you are claiming the promises of God. The promises of God have to be tried and proven. You have to walk into them.

Understand God’s Will

(Taking a look at the title of the message): Covenant- N.T., 2 ideas, one is disposition, 2

When Broken Is Better: Part 1–God of the Valleys

So encouraging…

valley upsplash1 Kings 20:23-29 “And the servants of the king of Syria said unto him, Their gods are gods of the hills; therefore they were stronger than we; but let us fight against them in the plain, and surely we shall be stronger than they. 24 And do this thing, Take the kings away, every man out of his place, and put captains in their rooms: 25 And number thee an army, like the army that thou hast lost, horse for horse, and chariot for chariot: and we will fight against them in the plain, and surely we shall be stronger than they. And he hearkened unto their voice, and did so. 26 And it came to pass at the return of the year, that Benhadad numbered the Syrians, and went up to Aphek, to fight against Israel. 27 And the children of Israel were numbered, and were all present, and…
