Does that sound like freedom to you? Doing what you want when you want to do when you want to do it? While that may sound good – living just for yourself is an empty life. True freedom is doing what God wants me to do. Because of Easter, there is No Fear in Freedom.
Faith comes by hearing God’s message.
Messages can be searched by topic, series, or book of the Bible.
Easter means no fear! What are a few your biggest fears? As get to the top of the list, death is usually one of the items. Death of a loved one, your own death… Easter changes everything, yes, even taking away the fear of death. Join us as we celebrate the resurrection.
“Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” With cries and shouts, for more than a thousand years, the church has celebrated the triumphal entrance of Jesus into his city, Jerusalem. Jesus isn’t just the King of the Jews, he is the King of the Universe.
The temptation for the first Christians was to throw it all away. Why not go back to the old way of doing things? Judaism had worked for thousands of years! Jesus is our Great High Priest. He completed the Jewish faith and won forgiveness for the world.
God is serious about his word. How serious? Jesus didn’t come to make friends of those who looked only from personal gain from God’s people. He came to save the world. He came to save you.
Temptation comes in all shapes and sizes and yours might be different than mine. Satan knows where we are the weakest and won’t hesitate to float a temptation right in front of our noses.
Certainty in love seems like a pipe dream, doesn’t it? How can you really know what someone is feeling? How can you see the doubts?
What lengths would you go to save a life? This is the question our medical professionals answer on a daily basis as they use heroic efforts to preserve the lives of people under their care. We praise God for the medical gifts he has given to our society! What lengths would God go to save a soul? That is the question we’ll answer as we watch the great physician in action!
What didn’t Naaman have? He had everything as his disposal. A successful career, wealth, but… he had leprosy. There was something wrong and he didn’t know how to fix it. The truth for Naaman was there was something else wrong besides his leprosy. It was in Israel that he found the true God.
“Follow me!” This is Jesus’ call as he gathers his first disciples. In this season of Epiphany we see Jesus reveal himself to be the Savior of the world. In the Gospel of John he shows his divine power. This catches the attention of the disciples, but it is the Word of God that creates faith.
The waters of the Jordan washed over Jesus as John baptized him. Those same waters of baptism washed over the jailers family in ancient Philippi. Still today the waters of baptism flow in churches around the world. In Jesus the Father is well pleased with all of us.
Over a thousand years before the wise men travel to Bethlehem, Ruth traveled to Bethlehem. Both were foreigners. Both came to worship the King of the Universe. Both had no business being there. Both were part of God’s divine plan. Want to hear more? Watch this week’s message taken from Ruth 4.
I just love getting Christmas cards! It’s my once-a-year update from my family and friends. To many people Jesus is just like one of many Christmas cards. Throw him on the pile with the rest. Is he a nice guy? There are some people (like us) who actually worship him as God.
A late Christmas gift can be perfect. With so many families there are only twenty-four hours in the day. Many families have to divide time between family and friends. I remember growing up, that late Christmas gift was something to look forward too! Simeon saw Jesus, a late Christmas gift, and praised God for it.
What does uncomfortable attention look like? This afternoon we will find out and offer a Christmas Eve Candlelight Service.
