In 1979, around the Sutton’s table, a commitment was made. That commitment was to grow a church on the solid foundations of the Bible and the One Another Principles found within the New Testament. For nearly 40 years, our church family has continued to be One Another People.
Pastor Marlin’s series for the next eight weeks will go deeper into the One Another Principles. Find out how, by applying these principles in your own life, you can be like Jesus in disguise to those around you. Click the links below to listen to the audio of each sermon, and follow along with a study sheet (PDF download). There is also a One Another Principles chart for you as well.
September 16, 2018: “Where It All Began” – Pastor Marlin introduces the new series and asks four critical questions pertaining to the One Another Principles.
September 23, 2018: “Come Right In” – Accept one another. It’s a tough one. Just as Christ accepted us, so we must accept one another.
September 30, 2018: “Selfless, Not Selfish” – In writing to the church in Philippi, the apostle Paul addressed a particular issue within that body of believers. He gave them four instructions on relationships that we can all take to heart as well. In patterning ourselves after Christ Jesus, we become humble servants rather than self-centered people.
October 7, 2018: “To Forgive Is Divine” – Being a one another person means being committed to forgiveness. It’s an uncomfortable truth. This week, Pastor Marlin guides our hearts and encourages us to interact with the Lord in forgiving those we feel have wronged us. It’s not easy, but with God all things are possible.
October 14, 2018: “Long Fuses” – Do you have a quick temper, a short fuse? As one another people, we are charged with being long-suffering people. Pastor Marlin addresses the difference between patience and long-suffering, and how we are to bear with one another daily. (Please note: Around the 26 min mark, there is an audio deficiency. Kind of sounds like a tunnel, so you may have to adjust your sound.)
October 21, 2018: “Giving a Boost” – Whether it’s a boost on Daddy’s back, or a booster rocket to get men into space, we’ve all heard the term “boost”. When it comes to being a one another person, it’s our job to boost others to love and good deeds, according to the New Testament. Learn how to spur on one another in this message from Pastor Marlin.
October 28, 2018: “Family Warnings” – Admonish one another. This is a hard one for some, and an easy one for others. Where do you fall in this category? Pastor Marlin gives Biblical insights and guides us through Scripture dealing with warning one another in love.
November 4, 2018: “Generous and Willing to Share” – The early church worked to ensure no brother or sister was in need of anything. Pastor Marlin takes a look at being generous with our money and possessions toward one another. This is the last sermon in the One Another People series.
