We talk about love all the time. We ask if our comments were ‘loving’; if our actions were ‘loving’; if we sought to love someone more than ourselves. But have you taken the time to pause and ask, “What does it mean to actually love someone?” I would like to flesh out a definition of love that will help measure all our actions so we can truly tell if what we are doing and saying is ‘loving’ In What Did You Expect , Paul Tripp defines love as willing self-sacrifice for the betterment of another, without any expectation or reciprocity. Willing Love can’t be compelled. If you are being forced to do something, then it can’t be loving. Imagine Jesus going to the cross because God the Father made him do it. Would…
10 Commandments for a Friendly Church
Speak to People. A cheerful word of greeting can make the day brighter for anyone. Some folks would never speak unless spoken to first. It would be a quiet world if everyone refused to speak until spoken to Give Folks a Friendly Smile. A smile costs so little and does so much good. Your smile is your greatest asset. A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken. Proverbs 15:13 Call Folks By Name. The sound of a friendly voice calling your own name is sweet music. It is a tune anyone can play. Be Friendly and Helpful. If you want friends, be friendly. Don’t build walls around yourself. Build bridges. A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend…

Bible Text: I Peter 3:10-12 | Preacher: Roger Voegtlin | Series: Transcribed Sermons Please turn in your Bibles to I Peter chapter 3, verses 10 through 12. I’m going to preach this morning simply on how to enjoy life. Everybody wants to enjoy life, but some don’t, and some do. I think we see a secret to this in I Peter 3 starting with verse 10. “For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek …
Pray for VBS
It truly is an honor to be able to talk directly to God the Father. With this privilege comes great responsibilities. We need your help in making this the best Vacation Bible School yet. To do that, we want to be in constant prayer in the month of June. On the calendar below, take a few minutes a day praying for this church-wide encounter with God. We are signing up our last few volunteers and recruiting children all over Wentzville for June 23-28; but, without faithful prayer and preparation, we will just have an event. We are instead praying for a great encounter with God where children of all ages come and experience His will and work. I do hope you print this calendar out and add it to your daily Bible study…
Summit Woods Baptist Church: Lee's Summit, MO > Mid-Service Comments
February 14, 2017 by Brett Harris Please find below Brett Harris' notes from the Mid-service comments this past Sunday. Evaluate your heart against Scripture in understanding Jesus' purpose in his first coming and how that impacts your view of our purpose in following him Acts 7 tells us of Stephen's stoning; the first martyr of the Christian faith. At the beginning of Acts 8, we see that a man named Saul is approving of the execution and that Saul himself was ravaging the church - he was doing whatever he could to stop the church. Later in Acts we read that Saul was heading to Damascus, still breathing threats and murder against believers. That's some pretty strong language. His anger and hatred of Christ and his church is strong and it motivates his…
