Diffusing the Aroma of Christ

The Scriptures talk about you and me as followers of Christ being diffusers of His fragrance or aroma. And that’s what we want to explore in our study today, “Diffusing the Aroma of Christ.”

The Heart of a Godly Leader - 2

Before we start today’s teaching, here is a leadership lesson from Jesus for you to think about. He said it when the disciples were irritated at James and John, and it goes against what most people think leadership is. Jesus said we are not supposed to lord our authority over our subjects, but rather we should serve them. He said, “Whoever wants to become great among you, must be your servant.” What? A leader must be the biggest servant! Yes, that is leading like Jesus, and we must pay attention because He was the greatest leader ever.

The Heart of a Godly Leader - 1

Some of you may be thinking, “I am not a leader, this won’t apply to me.” What exactly is a leader? John Maxwell said, “Leadership is influence.” Do you know anyone who has no influence? If you know people, then you have influence. I agree with Maxwell if you have influence, you are a leader. We are not all main or frontline leaders, but you are leading something. 

Established in Christ

Are you established in Christ? This is like the foundation of our lives. Who we are and all we do changes when we are established in Him. We say this is the best place to start, having Christ as your foundation and building your life on Him is the best decision you could ever make, if you haven’t already done it, now’s the time, to do it.

Delivered from Death

Death - just the sound of that word is depressing. Thank God we no longer must fear death. He has provided the way to receive life, eternal life. I like the sound of that much better, and this is what God created us for. Death was not part of His original plan; He wanted us to live and live forever.

What’s Your Comfort Level

As human beings, we find comfort in a variety of things in life. Comfort can be physical, like relaxing at the end of a hard day’s work. It can also be emotional, a state of contentment and well-being.

Rightly Dividing the Word

Thanks so much for joining us here on Hope for Today, it is good to be with you and we are excited that today’s lesson is from a New Testament book. It has been a while since we spent time in the New Testament. We just completed about a year of study in Exodus and before that, we went through Genesis. Now we are switching it up a bit and going through the New Testament book of Second Corinthians.

Preparing For Worship

I don’t know what comes into your mind when you hear that title, but I was reminded of the passage I heard this morning as I was listening to Acts chapter 17. There, Paul preaches to the people of Athens. Keep in mind these people who were religious with many gods they even had an altar to the “unknown god.” They worshiped many gods, but Paul was there to point them to the true God

Being In The Presence Of God

In the heart of everyone is the desire for fellowship with God. Somehow from the innermost part of our beings, we cry out for the presence of God. We are like one of the ancient philosophers who cried out and said, “Oh, that someone would come, man or god, and show us God!” Yes, we long for fellowship with God.

Details Are Important

It is good to be with you again, thanks for being there, and thanks for listening to Hope for Today. Our title today is “Details are Important” and it is taken from Exodus 34. As I was thinking about this title and looking at Exodus 34, I thought about a question I have heard many times over the years.  

Moses As God’s Man

Today our title is “Moses as God's Man,” and our passage is the next section of Exodus 34. Before we get into today’s lesson think about that title. “Moses as God’s Man” there was a big job to do, and God used Moses to accomplish it. What about today, is God still using people for specific jobs? Does God need us to accomplish certain tasks?
