Become a Model!

No, not that kind—A spiritual role model, showing faithfulness that others can follow! Just like Paul strived to be a godly example for the Thessalonian church, you can make yours count by advancing the lives of others with integrity.

Human beings have limits on what we can handle, but what about God? Does God have such boundaries? When it comes to stress, of course not, but when it comes to human rebellion, yes. There is a limit to how much he is willing to put up with. In this week's sermon, we see God's patience run out for Saul.

In today's sermon, Pastor Ben addresses the question, "When is it appropriate and when is it foolish, to judge?" In Matthew 7, Jesus clearly teaches about how we are to judge others and ourselves.
