Love, Mend, Train, Send – Part 1

Welcome this morning as we begin a 4 week look at the mission of LCF; we are called to be a community that is committed to the process of people becoming more like Jesus and all that can mean to us; we believe it starts with love, we believe we are all broken and in need of a healer, we believe that we are called to be changed not to stay in the pit we came from but to be changed to be more like Christ and we believe that we are people who are sent back to our circles of influence…

I believ



What To Do When You Don’t Know What To Do

Grace – Part 20

Wrap up on the Series Grace

• Grace is free; you can’t earn it!

Instead of just me saying it, go to the word of God;
Eph. 2:8-9 God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. (NLT)
Grace is not earned, it is received; like a gift on your birthday you reach out and take it; it isn’t a gift if you have to pay for it!!

• Love is the “starter” for grace.

Grace – Part 18

So welcome this morning as we continue along in our study of grace and how grace is the only answer to shame. Speaking of shame, the question really boils down to how do you deal with shame?
How do you get over the shame of your past, how do you heal if shame keeps coming back on you, how you move on from shame….

So after last week we had a lot of questions regarding true repentance vs. sorrow; so to recap from where we were last week:

1. Repent

This goes to that point of not just



Grace – Part 17

So welcome this morning as we continue along in our study of grace and how grace is the only answer to shame. Speaking of shame, the question really boils down to how do you deal with shame?
How do you get over the shame of your past, how do you heal if shame keeps coming back on you, how you move on from shame….

John 9:1-3 Walking down the street, Jesus saw a man blind from birth. His disciples asked, “Rabbi, who sinned: this man or his parents, causing him to be born blind?”
Jesus said,

Grace – Part 16

Grace; an un-earned continuous gift from our Father that covers us, forgives us, loves us….

I love this reminder in the bible:
1 Peter 4:8 “… love covers a multitude of sins…”

God does not uncover us, He uses His grace and love for us to cover us, to protect our reputation, to define who we really are…

So then;
• Our confidence is not in what we have done but what God has done in us!

As we said last week, it is immaterial what our past is like, what we did; what is i

Grace – Part 14

• God restores what is broken and changes it into something amazing; all you need is faith!

This is the true story of grace; what is broke, hurt, depressed, immobile, beat down, queasy, God changes, He re-makes into something beautiful…

The story of the woman at the well; here is a woman who has had broken relationships, not at all what she wanted, but Jesus takes the brokenness and turns an entire village to Him.

John 4:39-42 Many Samaritans from the village believed in Jesus beca



Grace – Part 13

We started last week talking about these two guys who got tired of waiting around for the other shoe to drop and took matters in their own hands and went and did something pretty crazy.

Jonathan and his armor bearer decide to go attack the enemy at a time when it looked really hopeless; no weapons, no hope, no courage, no vision… sounds kind of familiar!

You may be there right now; we live in a time of real despair it seems; but you and I know, or at least should know that it is Jesus’
