Three Sermon Series You Should Watch

Here are 3 sermon series you should bookmark to watch later:

DTSE-thumb

“When we compare our unfiltered lives to a world cropped and edited where everything is perfect, we’re left with thoughts of misery and frustration. The struggle to know who we are in the world without compromising who we are in Christ is a battle as old as mankind – but so is God’s answer for finding peace. In this series, we’ll discover how finding our identity in Christ can save us from the greatest obstacle standing in our way – us.”

The Counselor

“If you could ask God one thing, what would it be? Our questions reveal more about our faith than our curiosities. When Jesus asks the questions, He sheds light on who we really are and what we truly believe. Find out how His questions reveal our hearts in The Counselor.”

“Every battle begins with hunger. Whether it’s wealth, power or freedom, we’re all hungry for something.  And it’s our hunger that drives us — it’s the light that gets us through and the whole point of why we fight. Right now, you’re in a battle — it could be a battle for your marriage, your children, your purity or your finances. Whatever it may be, you’ve got the hunger and now you’re standing in the battle and faced with a choice: run or stand and fight? What are you hungry for? Are you willing to fight for it?”

Your turn… What are some other sermon series worth checking out?

Three Resources by Perry Noble

Perry Noble is one of my favorite communicators. I have mentioned some of his resources in previous posts. Today I want to promote his new book along with two other resources  by Perry you should check out:

“Stress, anxiety and worry are something we all struggle with at some point in our lives. But what about when it gets to a point where you feel completely overwhelmed?

In Overwhelmed, Perry Noble talks about his own struggle with depression and what he learned in overcoming the battle against stress and anxiety. His personal stories and Biblical teaching show us that God’s presence is greater than our problems and He will never leave us alone in our overwhelming circumstances. Perry provides honest scenarios and practical solutions on how to win the war against worry.

This is a book that can help you learn more about the character of God and His ability to help you through these difficult times in your life. You CAN overcome being overwhelmed!”

Erich’s note: I received an advanced copy of this book for signing up to be part of the “street team” to get the word out. I’ve really enjoyed it and found it be extremely practical. Make sure you but your copy now.

“Why is it that we trust Jesus with our salvation but never fully trust him with our lives? God longs to unleash his full measure of power in our lives to fill us with passion and purpose. But too often the things of our past—fear, anger, bitterness, worry and doubt—hold us back. Rather than focusing on the reality of who Christ is and what he has done for us, we allow ourselves to be identified by all the things we aren’t. But we are not who our past says we are, and we are not who the enemy says we are. We are who God and his Word say that we are.

Pastor Perry Noble challenges all followers of Christ to make a bold move by fully embracing the exciting adventure God has called us to. Are you ready to unleash all the life he has created you to live? Join Perry on this journey as he digs into the major barriers holding people back and shows how Jesus calls and equips his followers to experience a life most of us never dreamed possible.”

Erich’s note: Make sure you browse around Perry’s website to learn more about his blog, leadership podcast, sermons, and other resources he provides on a variety of topics (see the bottom of his page for the various topics).

Your turn… Take a moment to share how these resources have helped you.

Three Series by Perry Noble

Perry Noble, founding Pastor of NewSpring Church, is one of my favorite communicators. I believe you would enjoy watching these 3 series:

From interracial dating and marriage to whether or not you can lose your salvation, this eight-week series answered the most asked questions of our church.

What does it mean to be a man? Do you get to call the shots? Do what you want? Be the master of your own domain? Or is there more to masculinity? What about finding and caring for your wife? Leading your family? Pointing them to God? Providing for them and being a real leader? Are you up for the challenge?

The average life expectancy in America is 78 years old. That’s 28,470 days, give or take a leap year. The book of James in the Bible asks, “What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.” We’re all ultimately limited by time. So what are you doing with your days? How do you spend them? What do you fill your time with? God has given you a life to live for His glory and your good. Your life is too short to wander, to be filled with regret, or to pass by opportunities He puts in front of you. Don’t let it slip away. Don’t waste your life.

Your turn… What are your thoughts on these series and/or what are some other Perry Noble series you’d recommend?

PS: His latest book, Overwhelmed, will be available on April 1. You can learn more about it here: Overwhelmed.

Three Books Focusing on Personal Transformation

These books will encourage you to be vulnerable, move forward, and to live an emotionally healthy life as you embrace the life you were made to live:

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; . . . who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” —Theodore Roosevelt

“Every day we experience the uncertainty, risks, and emotional exposure that define what it means to be vulnerable, or to dare greatly. Whether the arena is a new relationship, an important meeting, our creative process, or a difficult family conversation, we must find the courage to walk into vulnerability and engage with our whole hearts.  In Daring Greatly, Dr. Brown challenges everything we think we know about vulnerability. Based on twelve years of research, she argues that vulnerability is not weakness, but rather our clearest path to courage, engagement, and meaningful connection. The book that Dr. Brown’s many fans have been waiting for, Daring Greatly will spark a new spirit of truth—and trust—in our organizations, families, schools, and communities.”

“Why is it that we trust Jesus with our salvation but never fully trust him with our lives? God longs to unleash his full measure of power in our lives to fill us with passion and purpose. But too often the things of our past—fear, anger, bitterness, worry and doubt—hold us back. Rather than focusing on the reality of who Christ is and what he has done for us, we allow ourselves to be identified by all the things we aren’t. But we are not who our past says we are, and we are not who the enemy says we are. We are who God and his Word say that we are.  Pastor Perry Noble challenges all followers of Christ to make a bold move by fully embracing the exciting adventure God has called us to. Are you ready to unleash all the life he has created you to live? Join Perry on this journey as he digs into the major barriers holding people back and shows how Jesus calls and equips his followers to experience a life most of us never dreamed possible.”

“The Christian faith is supposed to produce deep, positive change. So why doesn’t it seem to work in “real life”? That question screamed at Pastor Peter Scazzero when his church and marriage hit bottom and every Christian remedy produced nothing but anger and fatigue. As he began digging under the “good Christian” veneer, he discovered entire emotional layers of his life that God had not yet touched. And that emotional immaturity had fed his spiritual immaturity. In this book, he unveils what’s wrong with our conventional means of “spiritual growth” and offers not only a model of spirituality that actually works, but seven steps to transformation that will help readers experience a faith charged with authenticity, contemplation and a hunger for God.”

Your turn… What are some other books you’ve ready that focus on transformation?

Three Churches That Provide Great Resources

Here are 3 Churches that help make me better. One of the ways they do this is by the free resources they generously provide. I think you’ll enjoy spending some time on their sites and benefit from the resources too:

LifeChurch.tv wants to make a lasting difference in your life, in our community, and in the world. How do we go about that? By leading people to become fully devoted followers of Christ. That’s the driving purpose behind everything we do. Here are a few links that will take you directly to some resources they provide (make sure you explore all the different areas on each page):

  1. Weekend Messages
  2. Talk It Over Archive (includes video messages and discussion guides for each lesson/series)
  3. Resources for Your Personal Growth
  4. Resources for Churches (includes lots of great resources churches can use at no cost)
  5. Featured Resources (this page has some of the ones above and more all in one place / make sure you spend some time here)

NewSpring Church exists to reach people far from God and teach them to follow Jesus step by step. We believe that growing people change, that we can’t do life alone, that saved people serve people, that we can’t outgive God and that found people find people. You can learn more about their VISION here. Here are a few links to resources they provide:

  1. Weekend Messages
  2. Resources for Your Personal Growth (their Next Steps page is helpful too)
  3. Resources for Churches (Make sure you click on each tab | Series | Students | Kids | Groups | Volunteers | for lots of great resources)

So that people far from God will be raised to life in Christ. That was the vision of Elevation Church when it began in 2006 with a group of eight families led by Pastor Steven Furtick. Over the past seven years, that vision has remained the same as our church has grown to seven locations in the Charlotte, NC area with multiple extension sites around the U.S. and Canada. You can learn more about Elevation Church here. Here are some links to some of their resources:

  1. Weekend Messages Go to the Sermons To Go Page for a variety of ways to watch messages.
  2. Resources for Your Personal Growth (fyi: this link goes to Steven Furtick’s blog where you’ll find resources to help you grow)
  3. Resources for Churches
  4. Worship Resources

Your turn… What are some churches you know of that share great resources.

Three Resources that Focus on Evangelism

Here are 3 series I’ve enjoyed recently that focus on helping Christians learn how to better share their faith with others:

Witnessing is not something we do; it’s something we are if we follow Jesus. This series will help equip us to see and respond to God-created opportunities to bring some 1 to the One and Only.

Erich’s note: This is the church where I serve as Spiritual Formation Series. If you don’t listen to Rick Atchley weekly, check his messages out (he delivers a great one every single week). This is a great series!

This series contains 3 lessons called Famous Farmers, Famous Witnesses, and Famous Testimony that remind us that we are the supporting cast so that God can show His Son to the world. You can find sermon notes and a discussion guide for each message when you click on the link to watch or listen to it. One of the things it will encourage you to do is to create a “10 Second Testimony” so you can quickly engage others in conversations about Christ.

We’re called to “go and make disciples of all nations.” But most of us don’t. Why is that? Why do we gloss over or ignore one of the basic tenants of Christianity?  What are the realities of evangelism that we must deal with? What can we learn from Jesus about evangelism? What are practical things we can do to prepare to share our faith with others? Set aside two hours to engage with this simple, straightforward evangelism seminar taught by Senior Pastor Perry Noble. You don’t have to fear sharing your faith anymore!

Your turn… What are some evangelism resources you would recommend to others?
