Encouraging Essentials for a Dynamic Ministry, Part 1

Monday, June 13, 2016


No effort we make to achieve something great for God is promised perpetual success. Why? It’s all too easy for the slow, silent slip toward spiritual erosion to cool our love for God and diminish our effectiveness for the kingdom.

Thankfully, the Bible explains several essential ingredients that can give our lives and our ministries significance that outlives us.

Join Chuck Swindoll in this special message, Encouraging Essentials for a Dynamic Ministry, and learn not only how to prevent erosion in your life but also how to deepen your intimacy with God in a way that will overflow to others.

Growing-Up Goals for Diligent Disciples, Part 2 - Friday, June 10, 2016
We’ve been thinking about growing toward spiritual maturity for quite some time. The series has taken us through the stages all of us must pass (infancy, childhood, adolescence, and adulthood) as we mature in our walk with Christ. Even though we can never say that we have “arrived,” there are some checkpoints by which we are able to measure our maturity. We want to focus our attention on them as we wrap up the series. They are set forth in the beginning of Peter’s second letter. Spend a few minutes reading them. Starting with faith (2 Peter 1:5) and ending with love (1:7), you will find eightqualities which deserve our diligent effort.

A Song for Adults to Sing, Part 3 - Tuesday, June 7, 2016
Out of the rich book of Psalms, we find this ancient hymn—a prayer, a passionate petition—in which David makes a series of requests and statements that reveal a level of admirable maturity. For a few moments to read over and meditate on Psalm 26. Observe the composer’s major theme as well as his unguarded admissions. See if you can discover for yourself the relevance of this melodic revelation. You may be surprised at David’s ability to address subjects that are just as up to date as today’s newspaper. In reality it was the Spirit of God, not David, who originally prompter these thoughts and preserved them for all generations.

A Story for Adults to Remember, Part 2 - Thursday, June 2, 2016
Among the numerous Old Testament narratives, there are magnificent stories of ecstasy and triumph as well as agony and tragedy. All are preserved for our benefit. From each we can find both analogies and lessons to live by. One such story appears in Scripture toward the end of David’s life. Although most of the stories revolving around David’s experiences are fairly familiar to us today, this one may not be. Because it holds within it several truths that illustrate the marks of maturity in a believer’s life, it seems fitting that we blow the dust off this ancient account and consider its value in our lives today. As we think it through and relive its scenes, let’s not miss its message to we who are pressing on to maturity.

The Church: Who Needs It? Part 3 - Tuesday, May 31, 2016
As we enter adulthood in our faith, one of the most significant realizations to dawn upon us is a healthy understanding of and appreciation for the church. Most go through real battles in coming to this conclusion. The church, during our growing up years, suffers the brunt of our criticism and the bulk of our complaints. We go through periods where we ignore the church and resent the church on one hand, then on the other hand, we go to the extreme of virtually worshiping the church. In this message, we want to come to terms with the role of the church, its importance in our lives, some of the major reasons for its effectiveness, and why Christ established it in the first place.
