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.
It’s that time of year again. The weather is warm, the water is cool, and the Lord is good (ok, that one is true any time of year). It’s time for baptisms.
On Sunday, August 16, the Life’s Journey family will meet at Castle Rock Lake in Colstrip soon after the morning service. We’ll gather at the lake, eat a potluck lunch, and then rejoice as new Christians (and maybe some old) walk into the water to partipate in water baptism just as Jesus did and as Jesus told us to do.
Baptism doesn’t get someone into heaven, it doesn’t make a person morally perfect, nor does it save a person from sin. Rather, baptism is the public example that Jesus has become your personal Savior and Lord and you desire to follow him the rest of your life in humble obedience. Jesus saves and baptism is one of the first ways we show that he is our Lord.
Come celebrate new life on Sunday, August 16, down at the lake.
Rod continues a study of Ephesians. After praying that we may be filled with Jesus’ fullness in chapter 1:16-23, Paul reminds you, in chapter 2, of where you were (dead in sin, obeying the devil) so you will better understand where you are (Jesus’ fullness).
