In God’s Service

Is there anything keeping you from serving God? Often, it’s not overwhelming external obstacles, but one’s personal history and lies from the enemy that keep us from believing he can use us.

In this encouraging message, Elv looks at five women in the Bible. Though many would not think they could possibly qualify for God’s service, He used them. Listen below:

NOTE: The audio recording breaks in at the middle of Elv sharing the story of the girl who told Naaman where to find healing.

Some portions of this recording included group sharing, which were not recorded as loudly as Elv’s voice. It’s worth listening to, though!

For many, “modesty” is a loaded topic, associated with legalism, nit-picking, and double standards. In this message, Elv explains that while it is an important Biblical principle, we often approach it from the wrong direction. Starting with Jesus’ teaching in Matthew, he looks at Moses and other examples of modesty. Listen to this interesting and encouraging message below:
