  • "Obedience brings about blessing; but obedience has to come first."

    1 Kings 17:8-16

    8 Then the word of the Lord came to him, 9 “Arise, go to Zarephath, which belongs to Sidon, and dwell there. Behold, I have commanded a widow there to feed you.” 10 So he arose and went to Zarephath. And when he came to the gate of the city, behold, a widow was there gathering sticks. And he called to her and said, “Bring me a little water in a vessel, that I may drink.” 11 And as she was going to bring it, he called to her and said, “Bring me a morsel of bread in your hand.” 12 And she said, “As the Lord your God lives, I have nothing baked, only a handful of flour in a jar and a little oil in a jug. And now I am gathering a couple of sticks that I may go in and prepare it for myself and my son, that we may eat it and die.” 13 And Elijah said to her, “Do not fear; go and do as you have said. But first make me a little cake of it and bring it to me, and afterward make something for yourself and your son. 14 For thus says the Lord, the God of Israel, ‘The jar of flour shall not be spent, and the jug of oil shall not be empty, until the day that the Lord sends rain upon the earth.’” 15 And she went and did as Elijah said. And she and he and her household ate for many days. 16 The jar of flour was not spent, neither did the jug of oil become empty, according to the word of the Lord that he spoke by Elijah.

  • In part 2 of this 2 part podcast we talk about setting boundaries and not using our marital issues as content for sermons or ministry. We also talk about having a pressure to produce - how it can bring about unhealthy mindsets. How relationships can be defined by a role in both a positive and negative way, great friends were made through our time in missions - but disappointment was also very real from relationships that were only centered on our role in ministry. We also talk about the importance of allocating finances for date nights.

  • In part 1 of this 2 part podcast we talk about making sure we had the right foundation in our marriage. Making sure communication remained a priority, not letting ministry define us as a couple and making sure it wasn't intertwined with our marriage. What happens if your ministry ends and you don't know how to be a couple away from serving in that capacity?

    What type of medicine did you use?

    What about schooling?

    What caused stress?

  • 2 Timothy 1:6-76 Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands. 7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. The gift in you is not just for you. “Some people have a warped idea of living the Christian life. Seeing talented, successful Christians, they attempt to imitate them. For them, the grass on the other side of the fence is always greener. But when they discover that their own gifts are different or their contributions are more modest (or even invisible), they collapse in discouragement and overlook genuine opportunities that are open to them. They have forgotten that they are here to serve Christ, not themselves."- Billy Graham #newwavechurch #newwavela #nwlachurch #church #christians #bible #churchonline #onlinechurch #phygital #phygitalchurch #sermon #onlinesermon #losangeles #podcast #sermonpodcast #churchpodcast #california

  • Ephesians 5:25-33

    25 Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, 26 that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, 27 so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish. 28 In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. 29 For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church, 30 because we are members of his body. 31 “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” 32 This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church. 33 However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.

    .

    If we can easily bypass our marriages for our ministries we can easily forget Christ in our Church. I would offer this to any married Christian couple - your Christianity is better reflected in your marriage than in any ministry.

  • "The work of the Believer"

    Jesus has given us the responsibility of ministry.

    Luke 9:10-17 ESV 10 On their return the apostles told him all that they had done. And he took them and withdrew apart to a town called Bethsaida. 11 When the crowds learned it, they followed him, and he welcomed them and spoke to them of the kingdom of God and cured those who had need of healing. 12 Now the day began to wear away, and the twelve came and said to him, “Send the crowd away to go into the surrounding villages and countryside to find lodging and get provisions, for we are here in a desolate place.” 13 But he said to them, “You give them something to eat.” They said, “We have no more than five loaves and two fish—unless we are to go and buy food for all these people.” 14 For there were about five thousand men. And he said to his disciples, “Have them sit down in groups of about fifty each.” 15 And they did so, and had them all sit down. 16 And taking the five loaves and the two fish, he looked up to heaven and said a blessing over them. Then he broke the loaves and gave them to the disciples to set before the crowd. 17 And they all ate and were satisfied. And what was left over was picked up, twelve baskets of broken pieces.

  • "We know what you say, but we believer what you do..." Ephesians 4:11-16 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love. (Ephesians 4:11-16 NKJV) .Ephesians 5:22-30 Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body. Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish. So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church. For we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones. (Ephesians 5:22-30 NKJV).

Ciera shares some of her background and what got her in to this field of work. Also, she shares some scary situations that she found herself in. What does Anxiety cover? What does it look like? Is therapy still taboo? What does culture have to do with Mental Health? Ciera also shares her thoughts on Pop culture science - "it was on Instagram; so it must be true" or “my grandma says so!” Her goal is to bring people into an Educated and equipped position vs. an "I heard/saw this on social media so it must be true" position.

    Work & Water Sermon Series 1 Corinthians 3:1-9But I, brothers,[a] could not address you as spiritual people, but as people of the flesh, as infants in Christ. 2 I fed you with milk, not solid food, for you were not ready for it. And even now you are not yet ready, 3 for you are still of the flesh. For while there is jealousy and strife among you, are you not of the flesh and behaving only in a human way? 4 For when one says, “I follow Paul,” and another, “I follow Apollos,” are you not being merely human?

    5 What then is Apollos? What is Paul? Servants through whom you believed, as the Lord assigned to each. 6 I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth. 7 So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth. 8 He who plants and he who waters are one, and each will receive his wages according to his labor. 9 For we are God's fellow workers.

  • Matthew 22:15-22Taxes were usually the impetus or movement that caused revolutions. Specifically NOT paying taxes. Make no mistake about this - it was a politically motivated position the Pharisees were trying to trap Jesus in. •The context of this particular situation is important. Context is always important when it comes to scripture. However, the basis for the confrontation from the Pharisees was much more than addressing the position Jesus held on paying taxes. •The Herodians and the Pharisees disagreed on a lot of stuff. The one thing that united them was their opposition of Jesus. “The enemy of my enemy is my friend” Their common goal was to get rid of Jesus.•
