First Assembly NLR Audio Podcast
Weekend messages from Pastor Rod Loy and FirstNLR.

Christians are called to be the representatives of Jesus in a sin-filled world.  The Apostle Paul told the church to live a life worth of that calling.  He described what that looks like in Ephesians chapters 4, 5, and 6.  One of the biggest challenges in the church today is that too many Christians act normal instead of the new normal Paul describes.  In this message, Rod Loy talks about what Paul has to say about greed and immorality in our lives.

What you are concerned about says a lot about your values.  What are you concerned about?  How does it line up with what God is concerned about?

It's funny, isn't it?  We should be able to learn from other people's mistakes and failures.  We should be able to read a story or see it as it happens with someone else and apply it to our own lives.  We should, but often we don't.   What does it usually take for us to learn life lessons?  What can we do about it?
