Pray to Revive

What do your prayers look like? How do you pray? What you have before is a lesson on prayer, to help shape your prayers and encourage you to pray. All this with the single aim to help you revive your life through the way you pray. And in doing so – (and in the case of Restart Church) – revive your Community (as we aim to revive the spiritual heart of our…

Memorial Day 2019

Will others say you treated the Bible like it was the very Words of God?  Will they say it affected the way you lived and loved others? Today at Restart we celebrate Memorial Day as people determined to be remembered for our love of the Word of God. Philip Klevmoen joins Pastor Bob in the Pulpit to emphasize what the Word of God means to him, and then what all Believers…

The 7 Deadly Sins – Lust

I know what Lust is – or Do I? We perhaps see Lust more as a noun: as in libedo; and lechery.   And though this indeed can become a stumbling block – the instruction here  emphasizes lust as a verb: as in desiring and craving.  And as such,  Lust is at the heart of all the 6 previous sins. We Must Begin with Human Composition The human critter is made up of…

The 7 Deadly Sins – Gluttony

Gluttony is Overeating, Right? Well, yes.  But the climb to Bible Ground reveals it is much more.  Gluttony is the sickness of becoming insatiable after anything.  It could be money or power. We can be selfish about the sanctity of our own time.  We get cranky when people or activities put a crimp on our personal time.  We begin to dodge responsibility to wallow in our…

The 7 Deadly Sins – Greed

Considering Greed I considered my ways and turned my feet to Your testimonies – Psalm 119:59 There are several indicators or evidences that Greed may be creeping around trying to get a grip of your disposition.   The purpose of this study is to both highlight those sour “fruit” and to offer in opposition a lesson on greed’s opposing virtue:…

The 7 Deadly Sins – Sloth

Sloth – Who, Me? No really.  Sloth is likely the last thing you might understand about yourself.   But yet Sloth is epidemic among Believers.  Sloth is a habitual disinclination to exertion, or in other words: laziness.  Sloth is putting off doing things until later.  It means not being thorough in the things you do.  Sloth is giving into yourself.  Our approach in…

The 7 Deadly Sins – Wrath

Would you say you have a temper? The Word of God has much to offer in terms of understanding temper, anger, (or as termed in this study) Wrath.  And what’s more important – the Bible offers a clear path to directly engage our temper and overcome it.  You could say it’s the ultimate in anger management. Four Truths about Wrath Though there are bundles of…

The 7 Deadly Sins – Envy

The Seven Deadly Sins I can’t find the phrase “Seven Deadly Sins” anywhere in the Bible and neither will you.  This list has long been in use however and was categorized by the early church leaders to help Believers better understand the directions that evil temptation can take; to encourage us to self-assess – looking for evidence of them in our…

The 7 Deadly Sins – Pride

Production Note There is no video available for this message.  I feel really bad about this.  Sorry. What’s Up with The Seven Deadly Sins? You’re not going to find the phrase “Seven Deadly Sins” anywhere in the Bible.  The origin of these categories of disobedience are rooted in the early church.  I sense they emerged in an honest effort to help…
