Cultivating a Common Life

Sunday Morning message by Pastor Russell Dean.

Cultivating a Common Life

I Corinthians 1:10

 1.     What Hinders Us?

  “ I do not see the church as essential in my life”. 

“Unintentionally, can the church say to people, “You are not essential to us?”

  2.     What’s the Proper Response?

 It’s not something you do; it’s who you are.”


“Without building healthy relationships, the new Christians or new church members, will come to determine they are not essential to the church. Therefore, the church will not be essential to them.”

  3.     What Pleases God?

 John 17:20-21- I do not ask on behalf of these alone, but for those also who believe in me through their word; that they may all be one, even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may believe that You sent Me.

  John 13:34-35- A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another, By this shall all men know that you are My disciples, if you have love one for another.

  Philippians 2:1-2- Therefore if there is any encouragement in Christ, if there is any consolation of love, if there is any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and compassion, make my joy complete by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose.
