June 29th News- JOY in Sanctification

June 18, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: Philippians: Finding Joy in a Broken World.

This week we will consider how a follower of Jesus can grow and mature in their spiritual walk. Often times, we feel like we are far from God or stagnant. This can steal our joy as much as difficult circumstances. How do we approach these times? How should we respond?

Paul gives us a fascinating approach in Philippians 2:12-13. We need to read these two verses carefully, or else we could misunderstand them and jump to some wrong conclusions. To prepare, read these verse and ponder what Paul is really telling us here.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

June 8th News- JOY in Humility

June 6, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: Philippians: Finding Joy in a Broken World.

This week Paul gets very practical in his thoughts about JOY. In Philippians 2:1-4, he begins to explain how we should interact with each other. These are words that make a lot of sense, but they are very difficult to put into practice.

Why?

Because they require us to live a life of humility… And this can be challenging for all of us.

Read the passage and consider this: what is the key, according to Paul, to live a life of humility? I believe that our understanding of this passage can change our lives.

If the above sounds familiar, that’s because it is identical to what I posted last week. I would ask for your continued prayers for the Rodriquez family (their son, Mark, was killed last Friday night in a tragic, random shooting). If you have been watching the news, God has given them great favor to share about their son, his faith, and his Savior Jesus Christ. God is moving and working in this in incredible ways. The pain of the loss is very real. The joy of his salvation is very real too.

Looking forward to Sunday!

Grace and peace,

Doug

May 25th News- JOY in Jesus

May 22, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

This week we will be continuing our series called Philippians: Finding Joy in a Broken World.

Last week we talked about the fact that Paul could find JOY in Suffering. This week we will discover the source of his JOY… Jesus.

I think the ideas Paul presents in Philippians 1:19-30 are both practical and relevant. As you read the Scripture, ponder what your thoughts are regarding Paul’s words. Do you feel the same way? What are the ramifications of these truths?

Looking forward to Sunday!

Grace and peace,

Doug

March 31st– Easter

March 29, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

This is such an important week in the Christian calendar. Christmas certainly is more hyped, but Easter is the reason for our hope and joy.

Why?

Because Jesus, through the cross and resurrection, defeated sin and death– our two biggest problems– once for all! This is the basis for the gospel– the good news that needs to be proclaimed to all people.

Do you realize that? Do you understand that Jesus forgave your sins and offers his righteousness? It is the most amazing truth in the universe… and it’s for YOU.

Join us for a Good Friday Service at Hilltop Community Church in the sanctuary (combined service with CrossCurrent and Hilltop Community Church) from 5:30pm-6:30pm. Then come celebrate the resurrection of Jesus on Easter Sunday at our regular place and time.

Looking forward to tonight andSunday!

Grace and peace,

Doug
