 Five Family Fiascos: Hope When...You're Stretched too Thin | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3260

Hope When…You’re Stretched Too Thin Exodus 18:13-18, 21-23 Have you ever felt overwhelmed? Moses knows how you feel! He took on too much. Blessedly, his father-in-law encouraged him to delegate his tasks. One of the great spiritual dangers of our world is the danger of having too much to do and not enough time for what – and who – matters most. Do you delegate what you need to delegate so that you have time for your family and for God?

 Five Family Fiascos: Hope When...You're Caught in Blame | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3002

Hope When…You’re Caught In Blame Genesis 3:1-13 “My wife tricked me!” At least, that’s Adam’s excuse when God questions Adam as to why he broke God’s command. Adam blames his wife for his sin. He tries to pass the buck. How often do we try to blame others for our faults and pass the buck of our foibles to others? The blame game destroys relationships and families. Thankfully, we have someone who took the blame our sins deserved and died the death we should have died – Jesus Christ. Rather than playing the blame game, Christ removes our blame of sin.

 Fit for Life: Finishing Fit | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2996

Finishing Fit 1 Corinthians 9:24-27 At this time of year, when we consider the passion of Christ and how he “completed” the work his Father set before him (cf. John 19:28), it is good to ask, “How will we complete our lives? Will we complete our lives with our integrity in tact? What kind of legacy will we leave for future generations?” Anyone can begin a fitness regimen, but sticking with it to the end is difficult. Yet, this is what God calls us to. How are we running this race of life?

 Fit for Life: Financially Fit | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3680

Financially Fit 1 Timothy 6:3-11 Appropriately managing your money requires appropriately managing your heart. For the human heart can become easily ensnared by the allures of money, piercing a man with many griefs (cf. 3:10). Financial fitness, then, requires both a portfolio check and a heart check. As you steward your money, consider not only what your money can do for you but what your money means to you.

 Fit for Life: Relationally Fit | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3422

Relationally Fit Matthew 5:21-26 Jesus offers a series of three teachings in these verses, all concerning how we steward our relationships. In verses 21-22, he talks about our relationship with our brother in the context of our relationship with our own heart. In verses 23-24, he talks about our relationship with our brother in the context of relationship to our Lord. In verses 25-26, he talks about our relationship with our brother in the context of our relationship to the world.

 Fit for Life: Physically Fit cont. | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:57:48

Physically Fit 1 Corinthians 6:12-20 Our bodies are gifts from God and ought to be stewarded as such. Stewarding our bodies includes not only how we treat our bodies – the foods we eat, the exercise we get – but how we use our bodies. That is, do we use our bodies for things which dishonor God such as sexual immorality or drugs? Paul addresses both how we treat our bodies and use our bodies in these verses.

 Fit for Life: Eternally Fit | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3137

Eternally Fit John 3:1-16 Before we focus on our fitness in this life, we must focus on our fitness for the next. Fitness for eternal life is something we can never earn or achieve; rather, it is granted through water and the Spirit when we are born from above.

 Fit for Life: Wholly Fit | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3523

Wholly Fit John 10:1-11 Material and spiritual. Corporal and ethereal. Many people sharply compartmentalize their “spiritual life” from the rest of their physical life. But this was never Christ’s desire. His desire was that we be wholly fit – both spiritually and physically. This is why Christ has come – he has come that “we may have life, and have it to the full” (John 1:10). Jesus wants every aspect of our lives to be full with him.

 Shine Like Stars - Concordia's Core: Shining... Servants | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3251

Shining…Servants Mark 10:35-45 The sons of Zebedee want to shine like stars in glory, enthroned beside Jesus. Jesus’ glory, however, does not yet consist of a throne, but of a cross. For this is the place where he serves humanity. At Concordia, we have many opportunities to serve. And when we serve, we receive God’s promise that we not only will feel great because we have done something significant, we will be great.

 Shine Like Stars - Concordia's Core: Shining... To Others | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3170

Shining…To Others Matthew 5:13-16 Concordia’s cross was designed to be a landmark to Christ in our community. Like Jesus’ city on a hill (verse 14), it is meant to light the way to where the Savior is preached. Like our cross shines, our people do too. Who will you shine to so that they might believe and glorify God?

 Shine Like Stars - Concordia's Core: Shining... Guidance | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3070

Shining…Guidance Psalm 119:97-112 Psalm 119 is a celebration of God’s Torah. It is “a lamp to our feet and a light to our path” (verse 105). Do we, like the Psalmist, love God’s Word and meditate on it constantly (cf. verse 97)? As God’s people, this is our calling, for God’s Word is where we hear God’s most certain voice.

 Shine Like Stars - Concordia's Core: Shining... Praises | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:54:22

Shining…Praises Luke 2:22-32, 36-38 On Epiphany, we celebrate how a light from a star led Gentile magi from the east to worship the Christ child. Simeon, in his song of worship, remembers God’s promise that he will prepare salvation "in the sight of all people, a light for revelation to the Gentiles” (verse 31). Both he and the prophetess Anna worship the newborn king, as did the Magi. Their simple, yet sincere, worship of Christ ought to mark our lives as well.

 Shine Like Stars - Concordia's Core: Shining... People | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2971

Shining…People Philippians 2:12-18 At the end of every service, we are exhorted to “shine like stars.” This exhortation finds it basis in verse 13: “It is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose.” God is the one who makes and allows us to shine like stars. How is God working in you so that you can shine brighter and better?

 When Murphy's Law and Christmas Collide: It's All Relative | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:59:09

It’s All Relative Matthew 1:1-16 Do you have that relative? You know the one. The uncle who crashes the party with his heavy drinking and boisterous behavior. The in-law that you just can’t seem to get along with no matter how hard you try. All of our family trees seem to have a few broken branches in them. Such was the case with even Jesus’ family tree. But from these broken branches, God sends his Son to redeem the world.
