The Gospel and Emotions (The Everyday Gospel #8)

Some people seem to believe emotions are “bad” and should not be shown. Others, on the other hand, wear their emotions on their sleeve. So which is better? Are we to downplay our emotions so they don’t lead us into making a poor decision? Or do we embrace our emotions so that we can feel alive, even if those emotions hurt those around us?

In this third message in the “Self Edition” of The Everyday Gospel series, Pastor Erin Bird walks us through a passage out of 2 Corinthians 2, showing us that while our emotions are natural and should be expressed, they are not to rule us. Rather, our emotions should be corrected by the Gospel and move us toward God.

Committed to God (Committed #1)

People are committed to all sorts of things: family, work, hobbies, sports, etc. But underneath our devotion to such items is often a greater dedication – a commitment to self.

In this first message in the Committed message series, we hear from 2 Timothy 3:1-13 how a commitment to self actually keeps us from the life we want and that God has for us. So listen in to learn how to make the primary commitment in your life a commitment to God.

Re:Focus (Re: Series #4)

Have you ever seen a photograph where the object up close is in crisp focus, but the background is blurry? Sometimes our lives can be similar. We get so focused on certain things in life, that God sort of just becomes blurry and relegated to the background.

In this final message in the Re: series, you’ll see from 1 Corinthians 10 how Paul encourages his readers to Re:Focus the lens of their lives, so that God becomes clear and their priorities are properly in place.

If you are the type of person who wants to live life as it was intended to be lived – this message is for you.
