What Kind of Baggage Are You Passing Down?

Date: May 22, 2011 | Speaker:

The power that parents have to shape and influence their children for a lifetime is astounding. While our parents pass down many good things to us, they also pass down a certain amount of baggage, which, if not dealt with, will be carried through our entire life and passed on to our children. Are there any hurts or destructive patterns you are still carrying through life? Jesus invites you to lay that baggage down at the cross and find the strength to be the agent of change for your family.

Can Love Really Last Forever?

Date: November 22, 2009 | Speaker:

Someone once said, “Falling in love requires a pulse… staying in love requires a plan.” With roughly 50 percent of all marriages ending in divorce, it is clear that “falling in love” is not enough to keep two people together forever. Do you have a plan to make sure your marriage ends up in the “right” 50 percent? We close this series with 3 key principles for a long, healthy, God-honoring marriage. In which of these areas are you currently doing well? Which do you and your spouse need to work on?

Planting for a Good Harvest

Date: November 15, 2009 | Speaker:

Today’s message was presented primarily to the boys & girls and students of LifePoint to teach how the choices they make today can have a significant effect on their future. But these principles of the “Law of the Harvest” apply to everyone, adults included. God wants to use your life to impact the lives of others in an eternally significant way. However, a spiritually fruitful life isn’t the product of blind luck, but is the result of whether one chooses to follow or ignore the principles God has given us.

What Wives Wish Their Husbands Knew

Date: November 1, 2009 | Speaker:

Men and women are different in so many ways, and because of these differences, problems and misunderstandings often arise between a husband and wife. 1 Peter 3:7 commands husbands to understand their wives by learning how she needs to be loved. If men would only take the time to love their wives like Christ loved the church, they would be amazed at the woman who emerges!

Dealing With Your Past

Date: October 25, 2009 | Speaker:

Far too many people who get married and have children, try to build their family on the shaky, cracked foundations of their past. But just as no building can stand tall and strong if built on a broken foundation, so no marriage will ever stand strong if problems from your past are not first dealt with. The Bible says if we hide our sins we will not prosper, but if we confess and forsake them, we will find mercy. Are there any areas of “rust” in your past that you have chosen to just paint over instead of dealing with? Rust will always eventually show through the paint! God calls us to deal with our past so that we can build a strong family on a clean, solid foundation.
