Pastor Bobby Schuller continues his series entitled “Hope in Your Winter” on the forth Sunday of Advent with the message “The Gift of Winter” at Shepherd’s Grove on December 18, 2016.
During the holiday season, it is easy to get carried away with stress. Society is incredibly hurried, and Christians in particular harbor a lot of guilt that stems from always trying to set things right. Bobby reminds us that we do not have the all-encompassing power to change the world. God will gently call you to people and places according to His timing. You do not have to prove anything to anybody, because you are enough, and God is proud of you. Take the time you're given off from work this holiday season and rest, be with the people you love, and just take this time to enjoy your life--you deserve it.
Pastor Bobby Schuller continues his series entitled “Hope in Your Winter” on the third Sunday of Advent with the message “Receive God's Gift for You” at Shepherd’s Grove on December 11, 2016.
In this series, Bobby stresses the importance of facing our fears. Especially for those of us who worry on a regular basis, this is our time to open our eyes and heart to receive good things; stop always looking for the bad. Bobby alludes to multiple stories such as Aladdin, Lord of the Rings, and Star Wars to accentuate the theme of the main character going through challenging obstacles to come out victorious. He mentions these spectacular journeys to emphasize that doing things that scare you train fear out of your life. You will beat your monster, and your monster will make you better.
Pastor Bobby Schuller continues his series entitled “Hope in Your Winter” on the second Sunday of Advent with the message “You'll Find What You're Looking For” at Shepherd’s Grove on December 4, 2016.
Advent is a season of waiting, expectation, and desire. Many of the desires God has given you are good. In this message, Bobby stresses that if you want something, and it doesn't go against anything the Bible says, then God probably wants it for you too. He encourages us to remind ourselves, "don't lose hope; don't give up," because "He who seeks finds, he who knocks the door will be opened."
