While good works won’t contribute anything to our salvation, they are certainly an expected outcome of God’s work in our lives that adds to the fullness of this life and brings commendation in the next.
We will never experience the fullness of God’s grace when preoccupied with ourselves. But when we relinquish our self-interests and focus on God and others, God is ready to pour out his generosity and kindness upon us.
Learn about our partners and the things God is accomplishing as we serve our community together! Then Pastor Tim wraps it up with a 10min. look at love and loyalty.
Time, energy, and wealth are temporary, but resources can have lasting significance when they are invested in relationships and directed by Kingdom values.
God works in both prosperity and pain, and he generously provides us with the resources and strength we need to serve him well when we simply pray and ask.

We can expect the faith and works of “normal” everyday Christians to have extraordinary impact for God’s Kingdom when they are Spirit-filled and functioning as God intends for the body of Christ.
Understating our problem doesn’t solve it. But acknowledging our brokenness, repenting, and responding to God’s generous offer of mercy and grace brings redemption and new life. And by extension, God invites us to join him in extending that mercy to others through good works and testimonies of his grace.
