Rick Warren, Saddleback Church

 

This message "Find The Love Of Your Life" is sermon 5 from a 9 part series called "You Make Me Crazy". There’s more to love than what meets the eye, although our society values beauty and sex appeal above character. Pastor Rick gives God’s description of the kind of person you should marry along with seven character traits for a healthy partner. He also dispels three common myths about finding the love of your life.

The New Rules for Love, Sex & Dating

Andy Stanley, North Point Community Church

 

Sermon 1: The Right Person Myth: When I meet the right person, everything will be all right.This way of thinking creates trouble in our dating lives and sets us up for trouble in marriage. In this message, Andy challenges us to ask ourselves Am I the person the person I'm looking for is looking for? And he previews God's list of behaviors that will lead to success in dating and marriage.

 

Sermon 2: Gentlemans Club: Are the Bible's teachings about women relevant? In this message, Andy explains that Jesus' teachings about honoring women were extremely counter-cultural in the first century. They remain so today. So Christian men especially need to transform their thinking. And there are two simple steps to start with. *Please note, this message is not appropriate for all ages. Parental guidance is suggested.

 

Sermon 3: Designer Sex: Culture convinces us - and sometimes we convince ourselves - that sex is only physical. But if that is true, why is the pain of sexual sin so deep? Because sex is not just physical. It was designed by God to be so much more. In this message, Andy addresses common myths about sex outside of marriage and has two specific challenges going forward. *Please note, this message is not appropriate for all ages. Parental guidance is suggested.

 

Sermon 4: If I Were You: You can say, "I do." But can you follow through? A promise - even a promise as big as a wedding vow - doesn't mean anything without preparation to back it up. In this message, Andy has a "to do" list that will prepare you to one day say "I do" and mean it.

God Chicks

Holly Wagner

 

The King of heaven is waiting for women to take their places on the earth …we have a job to do. Proverbs 31:8-9 says it like this…we are to open our mouths for those who can't speak for themselves…open our mouths for those who are left defenseless…we are to judge righteously and administer justice. How can we do this if we are not confidently living our life as God's girl on the earth?

 

In God Chicks, Holly encourages women to embrace their God-given roles, such as the Warrior Chick, the Friend Chick, and the Just b.u. Chick. "We are invaluable," says Holly, "and more women need to see themselves this way. We do not have to strive or force our way…we just have to confidently walk as we were created…daughters of a King."

Brave women run in my Family

Bobbie Houston

 

In this series Bobbie unpacks aspects of their story in a manner that draws from both their strengths and weaknesses and in a way that is applicable to our everyday modern lives. Understanding the landscape of their surroundings and times, helps us understand ours. This series has been an all time favorite within the (Hillsong) Sisterhood. We are systematically working through the qualities of 40 amazing girls (the list is found in the back of the 2014 Colour Sisterhood bible), whose lineage of grace has so much to teach us.

  • How to speak the language of heaven on earth

  • What it means to intercede

  • What it means to carry your cross

  • What it means to be discerning

  • How to disarm the enemy

  • Why women are the enemy’s target— and why God needs them to be heroes
