In Spite of Our Chains

In Spite of Our Chains

Philippians 1:14

In the message “Faith to Move Mountains” we saw that, though our faith may appear small, all genuine believers in Jesus Christ have the faith to move any and all mountains which stand between us and a close relationship with our Heavenly Father. HOWEVER…Not all trials represent mountains which must be moved! Many things we […]

Faith To Move Mountains

Faith To Move Mountains

Matthew 17:20

In the message “The Mountain of Faith” we saw the faith of Abraham as God told him to climb the mountain and sacrifice Isaac. But, more importantly, we saw this as a picture of what it means to truly believe. Jesus said, “whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16), […]

Listen as We Climb

Listen as We Climb

Genesis 22:9-11

In the message “The Mountain of Faith” we were encouraged to believe with a faith which is secure enough to surrender ALL to our Lord and Savior. We saw an example of this faith in Abraham as he was given a son and then told to surrender him as a burnt offering; “Take your son, […]

The Mountain of Faith

The Mountain of Faith

Genesis 22:2

When Abraham was over eighty years old, God made him a wonderful promise: “A son coming from your own body will be your heir. Look up at the heavens and count the stars – so shall your offspring be” (Genesis 15:4-5). Many years went by without any indication that God would fulfill this promise. Finally, […]

This Last Day

This Last Day

Luke 22:23-24

On the evening before He was crucified, Jesus ate one last meal with His disciples. For three years, the disciples had been instructed by Jesus and witnessed His miracles. He had taught them many lessons about the Kingdom of God…and about His upcoming death: “He will be handed over to the Gentiles. They will mock […]

Spots of a Leopard

Spots of a Leopard

Jeremiah 13:22-23

In the message “Guard Against The Yeast” we saw how Jesus warned about allowing even a little hypocrisy to enter our life. When we compromise any area of our beliefs, we are in grave danger of allowing the compromise to spread “through the whole batch of dough” (Galatians 5:9). In the days of Jeremiah, God […]

Guard Against the Yeast

Guard Against the Yeast

Luke 12:1

When God led the people of Israel out of slavery in Egypt, He told them to prepare for a quick departure by making bread without yeast. He gave instructions to remember their departure through the celebration of Passover, also called the Feast of Unleavened Bread. During this celebration there was a seven day period when […]

Trusting in His Grace

Trusting in His Grace

Romans 11:6

In the message “What We Have Seen and Heard” we were encouraged to press closely into the presence of God and share how His truths have been made real in our life. As we continue to walk with our Heavenly Father and better understand His love, we ought to experience a sense of awe which […]

What We Have Seen and Heard

What We Have Seen and Heard

Luke 7:21-22

How will we respond to those who doubt? What should we say to those with uncertainties, or to those who ask, “Is Jesus really the answer?” We could begin with how the Bible is the true Word of God: “A collection of 66 books written by many different authors, during a 1500 year time period, […]

The Potter’s Hand

The Potter’s Hand

Jeremiah 18:3-6

About 2600 years ago, God taught the prophet Jeremiah what it meant to be a sovereign God. He taught that His plan WOULD be fulfilled – one way or the other. Either His children would submit to His gentle guidance, or He would bring discipline to teach them the need for obedience. Although God has […]

Days of Our Youth

Days of Our Youth

Ezekiel 16:15-16

All through the Old Testament, God called the people of Israel to worship Him as the One True God. He spoke through Moses, the priests, and the prophets, but the people continued to turn away. Even after the Babylonians invaded Jerusalem, God continued to call His Children to return to Him – to return with […]

Receive His Perfect Gift

Receive His Perfect Gift

John 4:10

We are often encouraged to share the wonders of God’s love through the uncompromising truth of His Word. There are so many all around us who are in great need! We live in a lost and dying world full of people who desperately need to know God’s plan of forgiveness and restoration. But as we […]
