Followership – Sep 15, 2019

We are starting a new fall teaching series called Followership. It is a different way to look at leadership. We’re going to look at two leaders, two prophets, two men of the Old Testament. One of the prophets we will be looking at is Elijah. His name means my god is Yahweh. What a powerful name that is. Elijah is a Hebrew prophet and a miracle worker. He was a man who confronted King Ahab on the northern tribes of Israel. He was a man who came against the wicked King Ahab and his wicked wife, Jezebel. Elijah was not afraid. He came against them as a true leader of Israel during difficult days. Elijah is the front runner of John the Baptist and a mentor to Elisha. Elisha is the second prophet we will be looking at. His name means God is salvation. He was a Hebrew prophet, and also a miracle worker. He is the prophet who asked God for a double portion of Elijah’a spirit for his ministry. For 60 years, he held the office of profit in Israel. You can find story in 2 Kings 5:8. Before we jump in to the lives of these two leaders in the Bible, I think it’s important for us to set the stage as to what leadership truly is, as it speaks of it in the Bible, in comparison to what leadership is being conveyed to us in modern day culture. Today we have a guest with us, a recognized guest, a man devoted to God, true Shepherd of his people. Pastor Bill Tvedt from Jubilee Family Church from right here is Oskaloosa, as we discuss leadership and followership.

WORK – Sept 9, 2019 – The Power of Prayer

To have power in prayer, you must experience God’s presence. In the beginning, James says if any of you suffered hardships, you should pray. Everyone within the sound of my voice, without a doubt today, is having some sort of hardship. Something is going on. We deal with struggles and strife every day of our lives. Isn’t that correct? A lot of people will go to Facebook. They will take time to post things about hardships that they’re dealing with in life. Whether you like it or not, it’s there. Some will ask for prayer. Sometimes you can donate money because of their hardship. And often times people post hoping, and wondering, does anyone simply care?

WORK – Aug 25, 2019 – The Power of Forgiveness

Today we’re continuing our series that we’re going to look at what it takes to draw close to God and what hinders us from that happening. People will often ask me, Mike, what keeps me from having a real relationship with God? Then they will tell me that there they’ll give me reasons of why they can’t spend time with God themselves: too busy to read the Bible, too busy to pray, wanting something to hear from God, or the only time that they do pray is when something tragic, horrific happening happens in their life. Basically, they’re asking God to be to be their God, only when it’s convenient for them. Now that is not a way to draw near to God. And those are the things that promise you this morning are ways that separate us and keep God at a distance not that he does it. That we do see folks, relationships take time. It’s work…

WORK – Aug 18, 2019 – Power of the Tongue

Your words. How does your tongue speak. Your words have power in the place of where you work, and they give you life. They give life, or do they give death. Matter of fact, in the Bible, it says in Proverbs 18:21, death and life are the power of the tongue. We’ve all had these encounters in which we wish we could take back the words that came from our mouths. And my hope and prayer for us this morning is that we become more aware of the words that we speak. I ran across an interesting scene on a movie…
