Forgiveness :: KEYSTONES OF CHRISTIAN FAITH

Presented for Curwensville Alliance on 1/17/21 by Pastor Bernie Knefley.

Forgiveness is one of the keystones of the Christian faith. Forgiveness grants a relief from the payment of debt.

There is vertical and horizontal forgiveness. Vertical is the forgiveness that God grants to us. Horizontal forgiveness is the forgiveness that we grant to others.

The forgiveness God gives us is complete.

In this podcast, Pastor Bernie leads us through why forgiveness can be a struggle for us, and how we can learn to forgive.

Humility :: KEYSTONES OF CHRISTIAN FAITH

Presented to Curwensville Alliance on 01/10/21 by Pastor Steve Shields.

The second keystone of Christian faith is Humility. What is the difference between Humility and Pride?

Pride makes you careless, lonely and places you in opposition to God.

Humility comes with an unexpected blessing because it opens the door of your heart to God’s grace.

Humility is beautiful. It is not self-deprecation. Instead humility is a sense of your own flaws and limitations apart from Christ and knowing who you are in Christ.

When you turn your eyes upon Jesus you will find the tranquil place of humility.

Mercy :: KEYSTONES OF CHRISTIAN FAITH

Presented for Curwensville Alliance on 01/03/21 by Pastor Steve Shields.

Pastor Steve begins a new series called Keystones of the Christian faith.

Mercy is a keystone of the Christian faith because it reaches the heart, expands the soul, and overflows.

Mercy saves and comes at a cost.

In this podcast, Pastor Steve will lead us through how mercy is a keystone of Christian faith.

Breaking Free from Cynicism :: ADVENT

Presented for Curwensville Alliance on 12/27/20 by Pastor Steve Shields.

Where does cynicism originate? Cynicism is a defense mechanism, an easy way out and comes from the enemy.

When you allow cynicism in your life it can turn your heart bitter and lonely. Cynicism can also lead to conflict.

In this podcast, Pastor Steve walks us through the remedy for cynicism? You need to forgive those who have injured you, do the hard work of love, and walk close to the Shepherd.

Bringing Comfort to Our Hearts :: ADVENT

Presented for Curwensville Alliance on 12/20/20 by Pastor Steve Shields.

Where does comfort come from?

Comfort comes from Christ’s power! Unlike human power which has limits, His power is unlimited!

We can find comfort in His goodness. We can find comfort in His love. He comes to us, fights for us, makes us family and lives among us!

Listen as Pastor Steve guides us through finding comfort in Christ.

Living with Certainty in Uncertain Times :: ADVENT

Presented to Curwensville Alliance on 12/13/20 by Pastor Steve Shields.

In the Advent story, we can look at Joseph, the Shepherds and the Magi to see examples of those who lived with certainty in uncertain times.

What gave them certainty? Their hearts gave them certainty. Joseph had a just heart. The Shepherds had hopeful hearts. The Magi had hungry hearts.

How can we live with certainty? By cultivating a just heart, a hopeful heart and hungry heart.

In this podcast, Pastor Steve will lead you through how to live with certainty in uncertain times.

Peace :: ADVENT

Presented at Curwensville Alliance on 12/06/20 by Pastor Steve Shields.

Do you struggle to find peace? Where does peace come from? How can we have true peace?

Peace does not mean the absence of conflict. Peace also does not mean being the same. These are some common misconceptions of peace.

Rather, peace comes from the Prince of Peace. Peace comes through His advent, death and triumph.

But how can peace be yours this Advent Season? You will have to think with humility, view yourself with honesty and view others with grace.

Real God – Real Life – Real Christmas :: ADVENT

Presented at Curwensville Alliance on 11/29/20 by Pastor Steve Shields.

Disappointment. Has this year held one disappointment after another for you?

Disappointment is part of real life. Disappointment can lead to darkness and despair.

What is the remedy for disappointment? Advent!

In this podcast, Pastor Steve will lead you through how Advent is the remedy for disappointment.

Jesus is the Light to dispel disappointment. You can trust Jesus to understand what you do not understand. You can look to Jesus for unparalleled hope.

Living Well In Tough Times :: THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT

Presented at Curwensville Alliance on 11/22/20 by Pastor Steve Shields.

Do you feel like we are living in unprecedented times? You are not alone.

In this last podcast on The Sermon on the Mount, Pastor Steve will guide you through how Kingdom people can live well in tough times.

You can come in from the storm by entering into a relationship with God. You can live as a citizen of the Kingdom by building your life on Jesus’ words, and experience peace because you are His.

The Hidden Goodness of God :: THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT

Presented at Curwensville Alliance on 11/15/20 by Pastor Steve Shields.

The fallen world masks God’s goodness. The mask is made up of injustice, futility and life’s hardships.

Jesus unveils the face of God!

What do we see behind the mask? The Father who provides graciously. The Father who provides without discrimination. The Father who provides goodness.

In the kingdom we reveal the face of God. In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus gives us The Golden Rule to follow. When we live by The Golden Rule, we pull down the veil. We show the face of God to the world.
