FAIL: Life Strategies that Fail Us

FAIL: Life Strategies that Fail Us

Are you tired from trying to do life your way? How’s that working for you anyway? In our sermon series called “FAIL”, we look at some life strategies that sound like a good idea, but in reality they fail us. Instead, we discover how to live God’s way.

Let’s Try Living Together First

July 7, 2014

Pastor Gary Combs concludes the FAIL series with this message from Malachi about God’s wonderful provision for us called marriage. A growing number of people today are choosing to live together rather than commit to marriage. About 2/3 of them say it’s because they don’t want to experience divorce. But God’s Word offers a better strategy, one that offers four words of blessing for us in marriage. These four words are: Creation, Covenant, Celebration and Commitment.


This Is As Good As It Gets

June 29, 2014

Pastor Jonathan Combs addressed this tendency for complacency and settling among many people in our culture when God has called us to live an abundant life. This sermon from Numbers 32 calls Christians to reject this tendency to settle and instead live out the calling for God’s best.


I’ll Get To That Later

June 22, 2014

In the third installment of our FAIL: Life Strategies that Fail Us sermon series, Jonathan Combs helps us understand the failed life strategy called, “I’ll Get To That Later”. What major life decision have you been putting off? Have you heard the calling of God, but you’ve resisted following his will? Stop waiting for the “right conditions” and learn to follow God’s will right away!


God, If I Do This, Will You Do That?

June 15, 2014

In the second sermon in our “FAIL: Life Strategies That Fail Us” series, Jonathan Minter uncovered the life strategy called, “God, If I Do This, Will You Do That?” We often approach God with a list of things we’ve done in hopes of gaining something in return. But Jesus, in a parable about a Pharisee and a tax collector, taught us that our right-standing with God does not come from within ourselves, but rather from accepting the righteousness of Christ.


I’ve Got This

June 8, 2014

Do you ever struggle with control issues? Do you hesitate to stop and ask for directions? Mike Laramee helps us see the failure of the life strategy called, “I’ve Got This”. We must learn to depend not on our own wisdom but the wisdom of God as given to us by his Word, his Holy Spirit, and other believers.
