In a culture where “kinging” yourself is the norm, wise counsel is seen as an attack on personal autonomy. But how many times have you said or done something foolish that felt good, but quickly made your life worse? In the book of 1 Kings, we see that when wise counsel is refused, our lives go downhill fast. Let God’s Word show you how to find wise counsel, why we refuse it, and how to get back under it.
Maybe it’s family. Maybe it’s integrity. Maybe it’s morality. Somewhere, we all make personal compromises. But in a world so accepting of grey morality, what does God have to say? In this message (taken from the life of King Josiah), learn about the dangers of compromising and how God responds. Killing sinful compromises and chasing after Christ is not an easy play. But today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your heart.
Christ has given the church a command: go and make disciples. But while every believer should want to get more people into church, discipleship is about far more than numbers. When the quantity of disciples becomes more important than the quality of discipleship, we slam the brakes on spiritual maturity. The apostle Paul had a lot to say about discipleship and why we need to grow. So dig into God’s Word and learn the why and how of quality growth.
