Pastor Paul talks about presentation and perception. We are perfect just the way we are and as Christians we must show the world that God loves us as we are. We don't need to be perfect to come to Him. We must let love fuel our honesty and transparency. God doesn't make mistakes.
Pastor Bill teaches about the importance of patience.
Dessert always comes at the end, at least for most people. We look forward to it, and we anticipate it. That's what our attitude towards heaven should be. Heaven awaits us who have trusted in Christ. No matter what you envision heaven is like, it will be so much better. Most of all, we will be in the presence of God forever.
We are looking at the essential ingredients to have authentic relationships. God created us for community. We are to love God and love people. These are the practical aspects of relationships.
