Transformed Episode #216: What Does Great Worship Sound Like?

Date August 24, 2014

Slide3

 

Great worship is not about style. It is not about music. It is not about method. Great worship is about God.

Welcome to the Transformed Podcast.

In this message, Pastor Matthew Lee Smith, reminds us that In God’s presence our soul reconnects to the power Source of the universe and we are filled with God’s fuel for the soul – joy!

Pastor Matt will also remind us that when we are away from such worship, our souls dry out. Our brittleness can be heard in our words, seen in our actions and felt in our emotions. Like parched ground, we thirst for Him!

Let’s join the people of Pacific Baptist Church in El Segundo, CA as we answer the question, What does great worship sound like?

 

Would You Like to Help Spread the Word?

Perhaps you would you consider sharing this message with a friend? God longs to release the captives of our culture into the freedom of faith. Thank you for your consideration!

If you would like to explore how you can experience the love of God in a deeper, more real way, Dr. Smith has written a book to take you to the next level!

In His Image explores God’s great love for humanity from every book of the Bible. From the creation of Genesis to the culmination in Revelation, God’s love shines through every page. Never is this ever clearer than in the times of Israel’s great betrayal of their God. His passionate pursuit of His children can be heard dripping from his voice as He calls them (and us by proxy) back to His shelter and protection.

This book was written …

  • To convince the reader of God’s intense and immense love for them;
  • To encourage the reader to reach out to the God who is passionately in love with them;
  • To strengthen the reader’s faith in God’s compassion; and
  • To motivate the reader to share the love of God with every person they meet.

It is very clear God loves people of all races and ethnicities. Therefore, whenever appropriate to the passage of the day, emphasis is made on the issue of racial reconciliation around God’s love. His love becomes the motivation for evangelism and for community. In each daily devotional …

There is a Biblical Scripture they are encouraged to read;

There is a passage of Scripture to read in the devotional itself;

There is the devotional to read which focuses the reader on a single thought, broken into two, three or four practical ideas they can utilize that day in their lives; and

There is a thought to take with the reader each day which summarizes the theme concerning God’s great love for them.

You can order your copy In His Image at the Eagles In Leadership website by clicking the appropriate link on the right hand side panel of the Eagles In Leadership website.

Today’s episode was recorded live in El Segundo, California and edited by Ryan Longsworth in Los Angeles, California.

And now, until next time, we are praying you would be filled with the love of God so that you can demonstrate His love to the lost and dying in your city! God bless!

Transformed Episode #214: How Do We Trust God When Life Stinks?

Date August 10, 2014

Slide3

Deeper, closer, more real … that’s what God longs for with you! Like any relationship, drawing close is where friendship grows and benefits abound.

In this new series of six messages, we will explore the journey into a deeper walk with God. We will experience the love of God in ways we never thought possible.

And, because we listened to Him and chose to walk closer to Him, we will find a life of joy, happiness, peace, happiness, and so much more!

Welcome to the Transformed Podcast.

When we are in pain, anywhere seems better!

When the torrents of trials fall upon us, we naturally revert to the times of God’s great blessings. We ruminate over the fun and fullness of God’s peace and prosperity. And when we yearn for the “good old days” we must focus on the God who provided them.

In this message, Pastor Matthew Lee Smith, reminds the people of Pacific Baptist Church in El Segundo, CAabout God’s generosity, and that that causes us to learn to refocus on His character when in trouble.

Date July 27, 2014

God Created You to Love You 2014

How do we maintain a healthy heart for God?

Welcome to the Transformed podcast.

Setting things straight with God is often painful at first. When we have become entwined in a way of life, extricating ourselves can be difficult.

Now, let’s listen as Pastor Matthew Lee Smith, explains to the people of Pacific Baptist Church in El Segundo, CA we can restore our personal faithfulness with the Lord, if we use the following pattern.
