Sermons by Rodney J. Mills (Page 2)
Following in the steps of Jesus, we are to sacrificially give away our lives for the sake of others – meeting the needs of the least of these.
God Himself is the Shepherd that not only pursues us with His goodness and mercy, but leads us into His presence wherever we are. He dwells with us.
In prayer and praise, it is appropriate to engage our whole being – mind and body, soul and spirit – in direction our affections toward God in anticipation of a powerful encounter with His presence.
During the Deep Season, through a variety of spiritual practices, we’re trusting God to honor His promise: “…when you get serious about finding me and want it more than anything else, I’ll make sure you won’t be disappointed.”
The Deep Season: A season of refocus and passionate seeking resulting in a desperate desire and longing to know, experience, and live for God that is greater than any other desire in life.
Alert and steadfast, courageous, and strong… everything done in love. We are the Sons of Obedience.
Though depression is common, God promises us He is near to the brokenhearted and will bring healing by any means necessary.
Replace the bitterness of your heart and mind with the joy and peace of God through forgiveness and meditation on the goodness of the Lord
Standing in the Kingdom, we make responsible decisions in love about our natural feelings of anger, and a resolution manifesting the divine presence becomes possible.
As I meditate on God’s care and love for me, my mind is being transformed to believe his promises, changing how I think about the source of my worry and fear.
It is first our spirit, not our behavior, that must be transformed, leading to the “life from above” that Jesus promises.
“The gospel is less about getting into the Kingdom of heaven when you die and more about living in the kingdom of heaven before you die.” (Dallas Willard)
