Dr. Joshua Smith continues the series, "Jireh," Part 4, which explores how praise requires sacrifice using the story of how God prepared Abraham to sacrifice his son.
Dr. Joshua Smith continues the series, "Jireh," Part 3, breaking down Genesis chapter 22, when Abraham is tested by God and the purpose for God testing His people. Testing reveals something in us. Jehovah Jireh is one of the names of God and in this series, we’re exploring what the name means and the significance of God being Jireh to us.
Dr. Joshua Smith continues the series, "Jireh," Part 2, encouraging us to allow God to shift our perspective. Everyone desires to one day be rich, but God wants us to flourish and optimize everything He has put in us. God wants us to be wise in how we spend our time, talent, and money. When we apply time-tested principles in all those areas, we can begin to see ourselves on a wealth-building path, not solely for ourselves but to help finance other's flourishing.
Dr. Joshua Smith begins a new series, "Jireh," Part 1, exploring what the name means and the significance of God being Jireh to us. Dr. Joshua also talks about how fear is our primary emotion when money is being discussed and how our psychology about money affects our psychology about God.
Dr. Joshua Smith continues the series, "Grown: Embracing Christian Adulthood," Part 3, breaking down principles of growth and human flourishing. He uses the words "blossoming" and "blooming" to explain how being healthy showcases our attractive qualities inside and out when we grow in God's way.
Dr. Joshua Smith continues the series, "Grown: Embracing Christian Adulthood," Part 2, pointing out the reality of being a mature adult, which includes having the same options as other adults but being limited to what is acceptable to God.
Dr. Joshua Smith introduces a new series, our theme for this year, "Grown: Embracing Healthy Christian Adulthood." Part 1 encourages us to expand our concept of what being grown means and includes God's concept of growth. Growth is going to be uncomfortable. But, for us to help others, we must continue to grow.
Blessings are a sort of double-edged sword. They bring us joy, relief and comfort. Yet, they also make demands of us, requiring more maturity, more responsibility, and more attentiveness than perhaps we’ve had before. This is because blessings make us feel like we’ve arrived and that can be dangerous. Hear from Dr. Joshua Smith about why this is the case in part 2 of “You Received a Blessing from God. Now What?" and what we can do to turn from focusing on self, to then, build up the church as one body.
Dr. Joshua Smith gives a fantastic word on Christmas Eve, "Now Behold the Lamb," pondering the significance of Jesus's life and sacrifice.
Dr. Joshua Smith moves on to a new theme, "You Received a Blessing from God. Now What?" explaining how blessings can be like a double-edged sword and encouraging us to be sober-minded and watchful.
Dr. Joshua Smith invites a special guest speaker, Bishop Jarron C. O'Neal of The Fountain to speak for our healing service. In "The Wait By The Gate", Bishop O'Neal expounds on how Jesus can have us wait for a blessing, in this case the blessing of healing, for His name's sake. He closes by insightfully sharing three different agents of faith for healing. This message is incredibly revealing and helpful if you are standing in faith for healing for yourself or others.
Dr. Joshua Smith continues the series, "Jesus, My Healer," Volume 4, Part 6, stressing the importance of growing in the Word and explains how growing in the Word isn't comfortable or convenient. Instead, Dr. Joshua encourages us to fight to spend more time in the Word.
