The Father Who Pursues Forgives and Adopts :: PATTERNS

Presented at Curwensville Alliance on 7/12/20 by Pastor Steve Shields

Have you ever had a broken relationship? We have all had those relationships that have disappointed us, but how do we restore them?

When we follow God’s pattern as a Father who pursues, forgives and adopts, we can see the importance of relationships.

In this podcast, Pastor Steve outlines the qualities of a good Father as He values every child, invests in every child and welcomes every child. If we follow the pattern God lays before us we can see how important it is to pursue meaningful relationships, forgive personal grievances and restore lost relationships.

The King Who Brings Freedom :: PATTERNS

Presented at Curwensville Alliance on 7/05/20 by Pastor Steve Shields.

Celebration is a pattern in God’s nature, which can be seen in the Feasts of Israel, the communion meal and the wedding supper of the Lamb.

We can celebrate that the King has freed us from death’s tyranny, sin’s power and Satan’s dominion!

In this podcast, Pastor Steve shows us how we can follow the King’s celebratory pattern when we release residual fear, relish freedom from sin and resist the Devil’s lies.

The Priest Who Substitutes, Atones and Purifies :: PATTERNS

Presented at Curwensville Alliance on 6/28/20 by Pastor Steve Shields.

When you think of a priest, what comes to mind?

The role of a priest is to facilitate the relationship between the people of God and God.

In this podcast, Pastor Steve will show us the priestly patterns of Jesus. Jesus is the Great High Priest, and as such He gives us a pattern to follow.

How do we follow this pattern in our own lives? We can help others in their relationship with God, intercede for others, help others to connect with God, be empathetic and gracious towards others, and live well.

The Judge Who Pardons and Justifies :: PATTERNS

Presented at Curwensville Alliance on 6/21/20 by Pastor Steve Shields.

Have you ever noticed that Society has a pattern of judgement?

It is a judgement that is constantly consuming but never satisfies and seems never ending. On the other hand, God has a pattern on judging that differs from society.

In this podcast, Pastor Steve will discuss God’s pattern of judging. He will lead us through how God is a righteous Judge, a reluctant Judge, a patient Judge and a compassionate Judge. But how does God’s judging pardon and justify?

Because of the cross.

Creation and Renewal :: PATTERNS
