Brew: Life’s Too Short For Bad Coffee

Brew: Life’s Too Short For Bad Coffee

Ventura Lighthouse 805 church – The Brew series looks at the life of a coffee bean from farm to table/cup. It’s the role of the bean to serve. So too, is the role of a believer – serve with an attitude of worship, the Kingdom of God. In this second episode of Brew; Pastor Matt discusses the roasting process. Just like the coffee bean has to be roasted before it can be used; we must be refined by God. All the “excess”, un-necessary stuff has to fall away to reveal what God has for us in our next season.

Follow along here with Pastor Matt’s outline:

1 – Illustration Of The Roasted Bean
1 Chronicles 21:21-24 21 David came up to Araunah. When Araunah saw David, he left the threshing floor and bowed deeply before David, honoring the king. 22 David said to Araunah, “Give me the site of the threshing floor so I can build an altar to God. Charge me the market price; we’re going to put an end to this disaster.” 23 “O master, my king,” said Araunah, “just take it; do whatever you want with it! Look, here’s an ox for the burnt offering and threshing paddles for the fuel and wheat for the meal offering – it’s all yours!” 24 David replied to Araunah, “No. I’m buying it from you, and at the full market price. I’m not going to offer God sacrifices that are no sacrifice.”
