Are you wondering WHEN are you going to experience the treasures that come with knowing God?

In this Gospel Message entitled “Profit And Loss”, Pastor Richard Andrews of  New Life Fellowship of Baltimore, Proclaims the Good News and  gives encouragement through The Apostle Paul and by exploring Philippians 3:4-14 and also by reading the Lectionary, 17th Sunday after Pentecost: That our Profit and Losses are not Fiscal Profit and Losses but Profit in the context of our trials – Treasures in heaven. The kind that are measured in our Blood and Jesus’s Blood. The kind that are measured in sweat and tears.

In this message hear how to see our trials and ourselves differently by learning:

~We need to start seeing Jesus and what HE wants differently.

~We need to start seeing the acts and works of our hands differently.

~We need to start seeing the things that come out of our mouths differently as we grow in Christ.

~Our Prize is to move forward, to press on through trials, to see the heavenly calls. (Isaiah 55-1)

~To count it all as a period of cleansing – Our “Pressure Cooker Period”

~To ask ourselves: AM I READY TO LET GO OF ME? AM I TIRED OF WORKING THINGS MY WAY?

~To see trials as a way of melting/weakening of the flesh/ humbling us.

~To see trials as pointing us to THE ONE IN WHOM ALL ANSWERS ARE FOUND!

~To see trials not just as losing self but GAINING JESUS CHRIST, growing in his righteousness!

In this message we understand that:

~There is NO WAY to share in Jesus’s suffering without US SUFFERING! To know Christ is to know him in his suffering!

~Our Father is saying, STAND UP as a Community in the LOVE of God and WALK as a Community to help other Communities. We are never in a vacuum but rather, US TOGETHER with FATHER SON and SPIRIT embracing us all. We stand in the name and power of Jesus Christ who lives in and through us!

In this Gospel Message entitled ” Partnering With Jesus In Planting Disciple-Making Communities!”, Pastor Timothy Brassell of  New Life Fellowship of Baltimore, shares with us the Mission of GCI and NLF with Jesus which is: Living and Sharing the Gospel! Seeing Jesus revealed in Matt 9:27-38, He Proclaims The GOOD NEWS that we are called to be GOSPEL PROCLAIMERS who participate with Jesus and other disciples, forming disciple-making communities that also proclaim this GOOD NEWS!

In this message we learn that when we see Jesus we see the God, Father and Spirit acting as One in Jesus! What we see coming out of the heart of Jesus is the heart of the Father, Son and Spirit! In Christ God is active in our humanity, BEingDOingACTing, and  SPEAKing in Relationship as He saves, heals and redeems His fallen creation!

Listen in as Pastor Tim explores the following questions:

Do you see God, Father Son and Spirit in Jesus?

Do you see God, Father Son and Spirit Committed to His plan of Adoption?

Do you see the humbling of God in Jesus Christ?

Do you see the capability of man in Jesus Christ?

Can you feel the Fierce wrath and Fiery Love of God, Father Son and Spirit?

Do you see the faces of all of the Lord’s children?

Can you discern the whole God inside the whole man Jesus?

Can you see that God the Father desires to be known? Now!?

Can you look at Jesus and see how God deals with the confusion that has entered the human race and creation?

Can you see that Jesus calls disciples to participate with Him in the loving labor of  prayer and disciple-making?

Understanding God’s ‘If’s, And’s, or Buts’ RELATIONALLY! Part 3

Covenant Love

In this Gospel Message entitled ” Understanding God’s ‘If, And’s, or Buts’ Relationally!” Part 3, Pastor Timothy Brassell of  New Life Fellowship of Baltimore, Proclaims though  Psalm 89 and Hebrews 8-9 The GOOD NEWS of the COVENANT-KEEPING GOD Revealed in Jesus Christ – God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit!

In this Interactive Discipleship Message:

* Hear the call and challenge, as Jesus’ disciple, to a lifetime of continual repentance and transformation as we live in a state of “becoming” till Jesus returns and are asked “What will you be doing when He returns?”

*Learn how crucial it is to see Life through the lens of God the Father , Son and Spirit in Covenant Love, lest we find ourselves  adding problems on top of our already challenging problems, and maybe even adding to those problems with a “great attitude and hard work ethic”. Yikes!

* Rehearse that you have been saved into a Relationship which is active and realistic so that your participation with Jesus  now is one that is not apathetic or triumphant, but one where you are occupied till the Lord comes.

* Learn  why to resist this world with Jesus means pain and suffering but also a profound and unspeakable joy!

Listen in and see what you think!

Understanding God’s ‘If, And’s, or Buts’ RELATIONALLY! Part 2


Covenant Love

 

In this Gospel Message entitled ” Understanding God’s ‘If, And’s, or Buts’ Relationally!” Part 2, Pastor Timothy Brassell of  New Life Fellowship of Baltimore, Proclaims though  Psalm 89 The GOOD NEWS of the COVENANT GOD Revealed in Jesus Christ – God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit!

In this Message:

  • Hear how “God’s steadfast love is not a contract but a covenant that depends on God to fulfill both sides of in unconditional grace in His unrelenting purpose or reconciliation which he pledged to work out through Israel for all people!”
  • Learn that because God is Himself OUR salvation, then Salvation is not just a static some”thing” we are saved FROM but a DYNAMIC RELATIONSHIP of the RELATIONAL GOD we are saved INTO; emphasizing that the God Who IS, DOES Who He is!
  • Be challenged not only to hear the GOOD NEWS, but challenged to EMBRACE and BE TRANSFORMED AGAIN and AGAIN, as Jesus’ disciples, BELIEVING that, as men and women made in His Image, BELIEVING  is an  ACTIVE, MOVING, RESPONSIVE, PARTICIPATING, RELATIONAL RISK-TAKING ACTIVITY to the glory of the Father, through the Son and by the Spirit! 

This message also touches on the often difficult but  realistic situations we can find ourselves in as we live out and dimly show God’s Covenant Love in our present marriages and personal lives!

Understanding God’s ‘If, And’s, or Buts’ RELATIONALLY! Part 1

Covenant Love

In this Gospel Message entitled ” Understanding God’s ‘If, And’s, or Buts’ Relationally!” Part 1, Pastor Timothy Brassell of  New Life Fellowship of Baltimore, Proclaims The GOOD NEWS of the LOYAL GOD Revealed in Jesus Christ!

Because God gives Himself and His own Relationship to us as His Gift to us in Jesus, then God Himself is His own Good News! God Himself is our Great Blessing and Reward! Practically speaking then, the best way for us to understand what God is saying to us, even in scripture, is to understand more about God Himself, and especially as Revealed in Jesus His Son! Jesus Revealed that God IS Father, Son and Spirit not a doctrine! To understand God’s Relationship is not academic, or ivory tower stuff only because in Christ God is Revealed to be THE Way, THE Truth and THE Life!

It is in that Gospel context that we begin to understand that:

  • God does have some “If’s, and’s & but’s”  BUT only in His Unconditional Love for us!
  • We can only have a proper understanding of those words in the Light of God’s own Relationship, which has been shared with us in Jesus!
  • As we understand Who God is, and who we are in Him, we have to reconsider and toss out our broken views of “If’s, and’s & but’s” and receive them for the Good News that they are!

In short, hear about the God of Loyal Love and of God’s love that makes a choice for no particular reason! Yay!
