On Earth as in Heaven: Revelation 4-5

Watch, "On Earth as in Heaven: Revelation 4-5" by Greg Sidders, Sunday, 10-27-13

Does worship really matter? Does it matter whether we do it? Does it matter how we do it?
If you're someone who gets to church early and sings your heart out and thinks about how great it's going to be in heaven where we'll never stop worshiping, such questions sound almost blasphemous, but chances are there are people you know who are unmoved by worship as you are edified by it. To them, these are sincere questions.
In this message we'll find answers in an unconventional way: By taking a peak into heaven, to see how they worship up there.

Just Do It: Revelation 2-3

Watch, "Just Do It: Revelation 2-3 by Greg Sidders, Sunday 10-20-13

Have you ever pursued a goal that turned out to be so much harder to achieve than you anticipated that relief became more attractive than success?
I think there are times in the life of every Christian when that happens. We set out to follow Jesus faithfully for a lifetime, but then we encounter fierce resistance. What keeps us going during times like that? A clear vision of the rewards of perseverance! 
That's what Jesus will give us in the verses we will be studying in this message. From the other side of the finish line, He will remind us of what we have to look forward to if we overcome the temptation to quit too soon.  I hope you'll listen, especially if you need a second wind.

Knock, Knock: Revelation 2-3

Has God ever knocked on your door?

I don't mean that literally, but there are times when we know the Lord is trying to get through to us, aren't there? Sometimes we answer the door, and sometimes we don't.

 In this message we are going to watch Jesus knock on the door of five different churches, giving them the choice to either heed or ignore his painful but life-giving words. I hope that you'll listen and that if He happens to knock on your door, you'll trust His love enough to invite Him in.
