Free In The Fire

Deuteronomy 11:17-20

In the message “Guard The Good Deposit” we saw the importance of protecting what God places on our heart. He often gives us moments of Divine intimacy as a taste of the life He desires for us – a life of continual passion for God; a life where all our thoughts, words, and deeds become […]

2 Timothy 1:13-14

In the messages “Covenant of Worship” and “A Broken Covenant” we were encouraged to make a covenant (which we resolve not to break) to worship God with all our heart for the rest of our days.

Matthew 7:7-8

As Jesus was speaking to a Pharisee named Nicodemus, He said, “no one can see the Kingdom of God unless he is born again” (John 3:3).

A Broken Covenant

Hosea 6:6-7

In the message “Covenant of Worship” we were encouraged to make a covenant to love the Lord and worship Him with all our heart.

2 Chronicles 15:12,15

In the message “An Unknown God” we were encouraged to live a life of sincere love and faithful service while we worship a God we truly know and adore.

When Paul was on his second missionary journey he came to the city of Athens, which was inhabited by people who loved to worship and talk about their worship.

Hosea 11:3-4

In the message “Finish The Race” we were encouraged to run toward the finish line, but we were also reminded that God’s race takes place within our heart as we learn to trust and love Him more and more. His race is not in what we do but in who we are, and who we […]

Paul was returning to Jerusalem at the end of his third and final missionary journey. By this time in his ministry, Paul had been a Christian for nearly twenty years.

A Darkened Heart

Jeremiah 16:10-12

When God called Jeremiah to be a prophet, the people of Jerusalem had been living in sin for a very long time. It had been 300 years since the kingdom of Israel divided, and despite God’s patient warnings, the people continued to rebel and worship other gods. God finally told Jeremiah He would no longer […]

Mark 14:36

On the night before He was crucified, Jesus went to the Garden of Gethsemane to pray. The thought of what would take place in the next 24 hours caused Jesus to be deeply troubled; “My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death” (Mark 14:34). Being fully God, Jesus knew exactly what was […]

Galatians 5:14

In the message “Never Forget” we saw that God’s gift of salvation through faith in Jesus is our greatest blessing – a blessing we must never forget as we tend to become discouraged.
