Message: The Magnificent Method

Special thanks to Brother Craig Machniak for bringing the message today about God’s magnificent method to equip His people to serve Him. God stirs the hearts of His people and moves them to action. He gives us the skills, the will, the performance, and possessions to serve him faithfully. Regardless of who we are, God can and will equip us for a task that he has for us. Our goal is to be faithful and trust God and be willing to do the job he has for us. God will provide us with the knowledge and ability to complete the tasks He sets before us. What talents and gifts has God given you? Whether God calls you to build a tabernacle or just lend a helping hand to someone, how will you respond? Are you living your life focused on how you can better serve yourself or how you can better serve God?

Listen to the video to hear more about God’s magnificent method!

“and he has filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge and with all kinds of skills”

Exodus 35:31 (NIV)

Message: You Don’t Have to Guess… Take the Test

Don’t assume anything. Don’t jump to conclusions. It can be very dangerous when it comes to salvation and eternity. In our text today (1 Corinthians 11:23-30) Paul was telling the Corinthians to take a spiritual test to examine their own heart. I challenge you today to examine yourself spiritually. Eternity is a long time to be wrong. What is your spiritual temperature? Are you hot or cold? Are your spiritual arteries clogged with sin? Are you nourishing yourself with God’s word? Come to the best doctor and his name is Jesus. Don’t gamble with your soul. Trust Jesus. 

TAKE THE TEST

  1. What do you believe with?
      Romans 10:9-10
☐ Heart ☐ Head
  2. What do you trust in?
       Ephesians 2:8-9
☐ Grace ☐ Works
  3. How did you feel when you were saved?
       Proverbs 28:13
☐ Humble ☐ Proud
  4. What is your chief goal in life?
       1 John 2:15-17, Matthew 6:33
☐ To serve God ☐ To serve yourself
  5. Who do you love?
       1 John 3:14-15
☐ God and all others ☐ God and some

A Model of Motherhood (1 Samuel 1-2)

In the first book of Samuel, we are introduced to a lady named Hannah. As we learn about Hannah in the first two chapters, we will see a model of motherhood and some defining traits of women of faith.

Women of faith….

  1. exhibit real problems (1 Samuel 1:1-8 NIV),
  2. express vibrant prayers (1 Samuel 1:9-18 NIV),
  3. experience God’s provision (1 Samuel 1:19-20 NIV),
  4. excel at keeping their promises (1 Samuel 1:2-28 NIV), and
  5. explode with praise (1 Samuel 2:1-11 NIV).

Hannah was a good example of a woman of faith. She endured silent years of suffering. She goes to the place of worship time and time again. She faithfully worships and pours out her heart in tears. When God answers her prayers, she explodes with praise.

Women, you are a great worth in God’s sight whether or not you have a child. Lift your head and realize that God loves you for who you are, not for what you can do. He knows your sorrow and your pain and will meet you where you are. Moms, make it your mission to give your children to the Lord for a lifetime of service. I can’t think of a greater purpose nor a higher honor than to help children be ready to surrender their life to the Lord.

One of the lessons we can learn from Hannah is that we each, men and women, need a growing relationship with God. If you want your children to learn and become a passionate follower of Jesus, they need to see it in you. Do you have a relationship with God?

Following The Jesus Way (Mark 10:46-52)

The desire of Burgin Baptist Church is that everyone learns to live and to love and to lead just like Jesus. Today, we will look at how Jesus responded to a blind man and learn how to follow the Jesus Way.

In the Jesus Way, every person is important (Mark 10:49). The Jesus Way focuses on others. We should train our ears and eyes to hear and see just like Jesus. Jesus was not oblivious to the needs of others. The Jesus way doesn’t get distracted. Never lose sight of your mission.

When you follow the Jesus Way, you ask, “What can I do for you” (Mark 10:51). The Jesus Way is always about helping others. If you know Jesus as your Savior, you are called to be a servant and help others.  Our focus should be on what we can give instead of what we can get.

The Jesus Way doesn’t expect a payback (Mark 10:52). Jesus never said “now you owe me!” 

Are you walking in the Jesus Way? We invite you today!

Blessings,

Burgin Baptist Church
