His Disciples

One of the last commands Jesus gave was to “go and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19). The making of a disciple is the complete work of the Holy Spirit; but we are told to join in this work by teaching people to believe in the sacrifice of Jesus for the forgiveness of sin, […]

His Gentle Knock

In the message “The Most Holy Place” we saw how Jesus became the final sacrifice for our sin. When Jesus died on the cross, “the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom” (Matthew 27:51). The curtain had, up to that point, formed a barrier for the Most Holy Place in […]

The Most Holy Place

One of the amazingly consistent themes through all of God’s Word is His desire to fellowship with His children. When God created Adam and placed him in the Garden of Eden, Adam was allowed to enjoy God’s presence. God brought Adam the animals to name (Genesis 2:19) and actually walked with Adam during the day. […]

The True Peace of God

We are all striving toward the “successful” life, though our definitions of success may often differ. Many of us place our effort in obtaining more and better things, reaching a higher status, or building greater security. Others involve themselves in more “spiritual” endeavors with ministry activities and service projects. But the root motivation for all […]

Our Spiritual Walls

Nehemiah lived in the days following the Israelite captivity in Babylon. The first captives had been allowed to return to Jerusalem and reconstruct the temple. However, those who returned had left the walls of the city in great disrepair. When Nehemiah heard this discouraging report, he asked permission of the king to return to Jerusalem […]

What The Lord Has Provided

As a young teenage boy, David showed a deep understanding of God’s strength as he prepared to fight Goliath; “The Lord who delivered me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine” (1 Samuel 17:37). The understanding that God was fighting the […]

Remember The Eternal

Heavenly Father, we pray for comfort and peace for those directly affected by the tragic events this week. For those who lost loved ones, we pray that You would become their refuge and source of strength. For the children who lost a parent, we pray their hearts would remain tender and receptive to Your Word. […]

Heart Full of Passion

In the message “A God of Convenience” we were encouraged to be true worshipers who walk with God every day and refuse to put Him “on the shelf.” We must never become people who worship with our lips, but have hearts which are far from God (Isaiah 29:13). We need to be careful not to […]

A God of Convenience

Paul had been arrested and sent to Caesarea to stand trial before Governor Felix. During his trial, Paul spoke of his worship of God and belief in His Word. Felix kept Paul in prison, but often talked with him about his faith. Acts 24:24-25“He sent for Paul and listened to him as he spoke about […]

The Sin of Arrogance

In the message “Give Him All The Glory” we considered how Joseph recognized his ability to interpret dreams was only by God’s grace; “God will give Pharaoh the answer he desires” (Genesis 41:16). We were also reminded of Paul’s words to the Corinthians, “What do you have that you did not receive?” (1 Corinthians 4:7), […]

So The World May Know

In the message “The Mind of Christ” we considered our call to walk according to the new life we have been given. We then looked at several aspects of Jesus’ life as our solid example to follow. We saw His desire to serve and glorify the Father, but probably the most challenging aspect of Jesus’ […]

The Mind of Christ

In the message “Stand Our Ground” we began with a statement that our Christian walk involves a process of renewing our mind. Paul wrote to the Romans about this renewal as an on-going process of transformation (Romans 12:2). He also wrote about a renewed mind as something which has already occurred; “But we have the […]
