September 16, 2018: Don’t Think Like the Dead Guy

Presented by Casey Kluver (00:51)

The Bible speaks of having a renewed mind, putting off the new self and taking off the old. The question is, how exactly do we do this? In this week’s message, Pastor Casey tackles strategy to having a renewed mind.

Staying close to the Gospel and living your life focused on what Jesus did for you on the cross is one way to renew your mind. Also, having a biblical perspective of who you are in Christ and remembering that God is for you is another. If we have the perspective that God’s plans are ALWAYS for our good, that we are truly a new creation in Christ and that we have been given everything we need to live this life victoriously, we will truly think differently and love differently, as well. We must set our mind on higher things…the things God thinks about. We must learn to reject the lies of the Enemy and embrace Truth.

In this message, Pastor Casey teaches us just how to do this You dont want to miss these foundational truths.

September 9, 2018: See What’s Around You

Presented by Casey Kluver (00:48)

The prophet Elisha knew how to see the world with a God focus.  In 2 Kings 6, the people of God are surrounded by an army and everyone is afraid except for Elisha.  When asked why he didn’t fear the enemy army, he said it was because he saw God’s army surrounding the enemy on the hills. God’s angelic army was already on the scene, but Elisha was the only one who could see them because his mind remained focused on God.

Elisha didn’t allow the physical circumstances to define his faith in God. He allowed God to define his faith in God. It is beneficial for us to learn this same principle.  Listen as Casey explains how you can see the power of God around you when trouble comes your way.

Scripture references: 2 Kings 6:13-23; Romans 12:1
