Rooted: A Reputation of Love [Col. 1:1-8]

Pastor Justin Simmons focuses on the Apostle Paul’s thanksgiving for the church in Collosae and highlights the church’s reputation. Paul hears about the love that was prevalent among the church and commends them for their maturity. The love Paul writes about is due to the hope the church possesses for the future. They recognize that God has forgiven them and so offense has no place to settle. Hope is the fuel to love others well.

Pastor Justin Simmons concludes the series Crossing Over with a message about putting on new life. What happens after we’ve left the grave and all that defined us in the past? We must dress accordingly by putting on Christ. We put on Christ in our minds by thinking new thoughts to get new actions. New actions with new habits are fitting for a new life to be lived!

Surrender + Obedience

Pastor Brenda Sandquist, founder of Xquisite Ministries, shares a prophetically charged word with Arena Christian Center about surrender and obedience. Two words in the Christian language, which are never easy to digest. We must remain motivated to see surrender as a way to greater freedom and obedience towards blessing. Surrender and obedience will be a continual process as disciples of Jesus Christ. You can find out more information on Xquisite Ministries on their website.
