This short sermon, in the season of giving and receiving, focuses on the unexpected call of God on us to receive as a way of giving thanks
This is the last in a series of messages on the healthy Christian, really the healthy human. Today it’s all about a current buzzword: passion. What is passion, what isn’t passion and how do we find true passion in life?

Today is Orphan Sunday, a celebration held in thousands of Christian churches around the world to remember the orphaned and vulnerable, here in the States and around the world. This message is a challenge to all of us to remember God’s heart for the orphan, solitary and lonely and do our part in reaching out to them. There’s even a specific challenge that God has given Christ Community that I talk about at the end.
There are different ways we are to love, but that is God’s call to us. The good news is that we don’t have to love ourselves first, or find this love in our hearts. There is an inexhaustible supply that we can tap into. This sermon sheds light on God’s heart for His people to love, the lies of this world that can trip us up, and the freeing truths about God’s abundant supply to us to obey His word.
Continuing with the “Healthy Christian” series, guest preacher Jenna Tatar describes God’s design for His Church to grow together, corporately and “house to house”. Small group discipleship isn’t just a nice idea…it’s God’s idea
The healthy Christian has something that keeps them afloat when trials or troubles come. It’s a life giving structure. Some feel that Christian freedom means that there should be no guides and no rules. That’s just not the case! Of course, there’s another side to this coin too. There can be traditions that hold us captive. This message deals with both sides of that balance.
Enjoy this message given by Pastor Ben Cotten on Sunday, October 14 2018 as part of CCC’s Presbytery Weekend.
We’re in a series of messages called “The Healthy Christian” and today we’ll tackle the subject of releasing others into their destiny. Should our mature selves be looking out for ourselves only or should we be looking out for others to release.
