Does God Give You More Than You Can Handle?
We’ve all had times when life was overwhelming and more than we could bear. The question is, “Does God Give You More Than You Can Handle?” The truth is: God never said He would not give you more than you can handle. 1 Corinthians 10:13 is often taken to mean that God will never give us more than we can bear. In reality, the verse teaches that God will not allow us to be tempted beyond what we can bear, and that when it comes to temptation and sin, we always have a choice: engage in sin or run from it.

    Is Your Freedom Enslaving Someone Else?
    Continuing in our series, We Have Problems, God Has Solutions, our Youth Minister Chad asks the question, "What are you willing to do to reach someone and change his or her eternity?" Chad challenges us, as the apostle Paul did when he wrote his first letter to the church at Corinth, to get our of our comfort zones and "become all things to all people, that by all means we might save some."

    Should You Really Do Whatever You Want?
    Will you live like God's in charge, or like you're in charge? Should you really do whatever you want? Or should you do whatever God wants? These questions will be tackled in today's message from our series through 1 Corinthians. God bought us and paid the price for us, therefore He owns us; and this is a very good thing because no one could possibly love you more than God, or care about you more than God, or know what's best for you more than God.

    Do You Want to Win the Fight or Win the World?
    Last week, we talked about living different from the world if we want to reach the world. This week, we see a practical application of this truth. In the context of lawsuits and legal battles (as recorded in 1 Corinthians chapter 6), we discover that we must live in such a way that we are trying to win the world, not to win the fight. We fight for relationship, not against relationship. Why? Because we show the world that we follow Jesus by loving each other.

    Can You Judge a Book by its Cover?
    Live different from the world if you want to reach the world. This means that within the church, sometimes we have to judge a book by its cover. Can we do this? Actually, yes, we can, if the book is judged in light of the book (the Bible) and if the cover is the life of someone who has committed to following the Bible.

    Is There Wisdom in Foolishness?
    Bud shares with us about the "foolishness" of God and the "wisdom" of men. What we often consider to be foolish is actually wisdom in the eyes of God. For us to live by faith and trust completely in God, we must grow in our ability to follow what God says, rather than just living by conventional "wisdom."

    Do You Really Have Everything You Need?
    To kick off our new series, We Have Problems, God Has Solutions (which will take us through the book of 1 Corinthians), Troy acknowledges that many of us feel like we’re not good enough or strong enough. We often feel unworthy or unloved. But we need to understand that the negative things we believe about ourselves are lies from Satan. We could even say that those fears are lies that are told to us. None of us is that person who grace could never change. We don’t have to live like we’re not good enough, or strong enough, or smart enough, because we have a God who is all of those things.

    What Were You Born to Do?
    We were all placed on this planet for a specific purpose. We were born to accomplish something, but it’s our choice as to whether or not we discover and carry out our purpose. But there’s also something every Christian was born again to do, and that’s good works. Specifically, and most importantly, we do good works so that others might be saved.

    If God Calls, Will You Answer?
    Continuing in our series, "What Has God Done for You?" Bob teaches us about the ways in which God still "speaks" to us, even today. He also challenges us to answer the call of God when we know we are hearing from Him. This includes all aspects of our daily lives, including our relationships, jobs, recreational activities, and ministry for the church.

    Do You Believe That God Loves You?
    Continuing in our series, What Has God Done for You? Troy reminds us, and encourages us to believe wholeheartedly, that everything God does is motivated by His love for us and His desire to do what is best for us. Jesus paid our penalty and offers us salvation as a free gift of His grace, but it only applies to us if we have faith that Jesus really did this on our behalf. On a practical level, when we’re tempted, and struggling, and really wanting to do what we want to do, instead of what God says, will we still believe that God’s way is better?
