This week our Pastor spoke on bearing fruits worth of repentance.  If you’d like to read the sermon for yourself the link is above.  Below are a few highlights from the sermon that I felt were important and worth remembering and thinking more about.

  • Repentance is more than words, and baptism is more than ritual
  • Words without action communicates only hypocrisy, and a rite without change is a lie.
  • To bear fruit worthy of repentance, is to live into a life-long process of conforming to the will and way of Christ.
  • New life is not magic, it does not simply happen and then you go on with life as usual.  It is a realignment of thinking and living.
  • You can connect with Christ through prayer, study and service.
  • The most effective prayer is the one you offer.
  • ACTS: A – Adoration (Praising God) C – Confession (Lifting to God all of our failings and shortcomings)  T – Thanksgiving (Giving thanks to God for all the blessings you have) S – Supplication (Asking God to watch over you and others).
  • The most important aspect of prayer is that you do it.
