Living Well 2

Written by Bob Harpole on . Posted in podcasts

Living WellThis week I shared a second lesson from the book of Ephesians. This great letter written by the Apostle Paul devotes three chapters to explaining some great truths about God. Then, in chapter 4 he gets very practical about how to live the Christian life. We took some time to understand the “Put-off, Put-on” principle in the Bible and then looked at what Ephesians 4 had to say about our talk and the heart of anger. The goal is to help you to live your Christian life well–according to God’s plan. I did the first part of this lesson last Sunday. We meet at 11 AM at the Roybal Learning Center. The free parking garage is located at 1151 West 1st Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012.

Living WellThis week I shared a lesson from the book of Ephesians.  This great letter written by the Apostle Paul devotes three chapters to explaining some great truths about God.  Then, in chapter 4 he gets very practical about how to live the Christian life.  We took some time to understand the “Put-off, Put-on” principle in the Bible and then looked at what Ephesians 4 had to say about anger and about stealing.  The goal is to help you to live your Christian life well–according to God’s plan.  I will be doing the second part of this lesson next Sunday.  Bring a friend with you!  We meet at 11 AM at the Roybal Learning Center.  The free parking garage is located at 1151 West 1st Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012.

Endurance

perseveranceOn Sunday we were treated to a message by Nathan Morales.  Nathan is a member of our fellowship who manages commercial real estate in Los Angeles.  Nathan provides great leadership in our church and is an exceptional speaker.  On this Memorial Day weekend Nathan spoke about the importance of endurance.  He did a Bible study on Nehemiah.  Nehemiah is an Old Testament figure who was key in rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem.  He and the Jews faced many obstacles.  The message of Nehemiah is one of perseverance and endurance.  If you are facing a challenge in your life this message will provide great encouragement.

The Heart of Giving

HeartToday we collected our annual Special Contribution.  I did a Bible Study for the church called, “The Heart of Giving.”  We did a brief history of man giving of his personal wealth to God.  We go all the way back to the book of Genesis and see that Cain and Abel are the first characters in Scriptures to make a sacrifice to God.  We stop for a brief visit with Abraham and Moses before heading into the New Testament.  What we discover is that God does not seem all that concerned about about the actual worth of the sacrifice. God DOES concern himself with two things.  The first is our heart. The second is the percentage of our wealth that we give.  It’s a cool study that I hope you find encouraging.

Three Things I Remember Mom Saying

Written by Bob Harpole on . Posted in podcasts

mom_scoldingIn this Mother’s Day message I look back to my childhood and remember three things my mom said.  One had to do with a fight I had with a next-door neighbor.  The second was when I was teasing my brother.  The third had to do with an ice cream truck and a shotgun.  I lost my mom in 1996 but her influence and personality affect me to this day.  She was a tough woman who would do the tough things when needed.  I think you’ll like this one.

The Importance of Obedience

Written by Bob Harpole on . Posted in podcasts

ObedienceThis is a message from two weeks ago when Phil Reed, a member of our church, gave the lesson.  As he discusses at the beginning of his message, this is not so much of a sermon as it is “a talk.”  Phil’s sincere and heartfelt sharing impacted me greatly.  In his “talk” he discusses the importance of obedience.  He talks about the way Christians make the mistake of holding non-believers to the standard of the Bible.  He challenges this self-righteousness and calls Christians to kind of shut up and do what the Bible says.  I think you’ll enjoy it.
