The Judgement Seat of Christ | Week 9 | Acceptable Service

Today, we look at the event where the believer’s good works will be evaluated as to their acceptability to the Lord.  This event is known as the Judgment Seat (or “Bema Seat”) of Christ.  Listen as Pastor Clark explains why “good works” and their acceptability will be the focus of this judgment and NOT the believer’s sins committed after they are saved in the final week of Acceptable Service.

The Example of Jesus | Week 8 | Acceptable Service

The perfect example of Acceptable Service is none other than the example of Jesus Christ, who came NOT to be served, but to serve and to give His life a ransom for many (Mark 10:45).  His mindset of love and service are clearly shown in the account of Him washing the disciples feet.  Join us as we explore how Jesus esteemed others as more important than Himself in this beautiful display of agape and grace-driven service.

Spiritual Giftedness | Week 6 | Acceptable Service

So far in this study, we’ve looked at the keys and hindrances to acceptable service.  This week, we look at one of the tools, or resources, that God has provided to the believer to serve acceptably…spiritual gifts.  The Bible teaches that only you are gifted and wired to do what God created you “in Christ Jesus” to do! (Ephesians 2:10).  So, how do we utilize the resource of spiritual gifts to serve God acceptably?
