This Week's Word
The sermon this week is entitled "Filters (Part 1)". A video replay of this weeks sermon can be viewed on the resource page of the website.
We invite you to join our mailing list and receive emails we send out with news, special events or schedule updates.
We have a number of activities throughout the year, so stay informed and join us for fun and fellowship!
Here's what you need to know this week: We have internal filters through which we see and perceive others and even ourselves. Thus, our thoughts, actions, and our words become distorted reality of our soul filters rather than the only filter we should have—the pure, crystal-clear filter of the Word of God by the Holy Spirit.
1. Filters of Past Circumstances
Our past experiences can become a filter for our current mindset and our choices in how we interpret our lives or view the lives of others, including our own children. If pain or trauma has been experienced in our past, it can impact how we view our current circumstances or even prevent us from living in the present. More people have experienced some trauma, pain, hurt, sickness, or other unpleasant circumstances sometime during your life. If you find yourself going to extraordinary lengths to either prevent a similar circumstance occurring with yourself or your children or seeing this occurring with someone else as a “trigger”, then you are dealing with a filter of your past.
If you are willing to enter into a full surrender with Him, then He will start to move and help break you free from your hurtful past. Work with the Holy Spirit once He starts to show you the specific filters from your past that He will want to target and replace with His own.
2. Filters of Self
A filter of self sees from the perspective of “what is in it for me”; the attitude of being concerned with one’s own interests first above the interests of others. This filter may arise from a background of lack and/or from a background of others having more money and possessions than yourself and you feel ashamed when you compare yourself with others.
The godly filter replacement for a filter of self and selfish ambition is the filter of genuine humility. The filter of humility restores and grows relationships. Being humble removes the distorted view and provides the true, clear perspective about ourselves in relation to God.
3. The Key Holy Spirit Filter
Finally, believers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable and worthy of respect, whatever is right andconfirmed by God’s word, whatever is pure and wholesome, whatever is lovely and brings peace, whatever is admirable and of good repute; if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think continually on these things [center your mind on them, and implant them in your heart]. (Philippians 4:8, AMP)
