How can we know that God the Father still cares about us? Let’s consider a time when God’s people were a a very low point. Hear God’s word of comfort to them. It applies to you also!
It is the 2nd Sunday after Pentecost. The Gospel lesson for this Sunday focuses on the legalism that infected the Jews and creeps into Christianity still today. Watch and find out how God combats our sinful nature.
On confirmation Sunday a son or daughter of the congregation has the opportunity to confess his or her faith publicly and vow to remain faithful to Jesus. This is Lauren Guldberg’s confirmation creed.
Really living implies that you’re missing something. Pentecost is when we remember that we have everything we need as Christians – the Holy Spirit. Spiritual death means that we can be climbing a mountain or sailing around the world, but we’re still dead before God. Really living means living according to God’s will, not ours.
Ascension may see to be a curious church holiday. Why would the church celebrate Jesus’ physical presence leaving the planet?! How does that help? Wouldn’t life be better with Jesus roaming the planet stopping wars and curing disease? Watch and see how even though Jesus is gone, we are not alone.
Jesus lives! Because he lives – so do we! We continue with the vine and branches section of the Gospel of John. We’ll see how he is in us. Our relationship with God is so close he calls us friends. Sometimes we don’t see the love or feel the closeness of God. That isn’t because […]
“I am the vine; you are the branches.” With these words Jesus reminds us of the important relationship that he has with us. Bearing fruit for his kingdom is something we can only do if we are connected to him.
We are alive in Christ. On this third Sunday of the Easter season we take our focus off of Jesus resurrected body and turn into God’s word. It is there we find the Spirit. He is the one who opens our minds to the truth of God’s love.
April 13th is the day we celebrate Thomas Jefferson’s birthday. While the founding father of our nation loved books of all kinds, you might be surprised to see what he did to the Bible. What was it about the resurrection that caused such a strong reaction from Thomas Jefferson, Greeks, Romans, and even one of Jesus’ own disciples?! Nothing can change the truth that Jesus is alive, no doubt about it.
Why is it that we need to see proof? There are so many false claims in this world. If there is one thing that we must be sure of, it’s that our God can keep his promise. Easter is the proof that God kept his biggest promise – he rose from the dead.
Jesus is our king. Palm Sunday is the one time in Jesus ministry when he let’s the people acknowledge his royalty. He is a king like no other, in control of everything. That doesn’t mean he ignores the small things in life. He has the very hairs on your head numbered. Hosanna to our King!
We continue our series – Enemies of Lent. The Chief Priests said, “He saved others, but he can’t save himself!” What would the world be like if Jesus had saved himself and come off the cross? Were they right? Could Jesus have saved himself? Who would ever choose to die like that?! Watch and find out how they were partially right. Also see how they were completely wrong.
The enemies of Lent may seem an odd place to find truth. Judas is the week’s example. He betrayed innocent blood. See what he did with his guilt. See how Jesus offers us a far better solution at the cross.
The Jews wanted to kill Jesus because he claimed to be God. As we continue our series – Enemies of Lent – we will consider the charges the Jews brought against Jesus when he was on trial. What did the Jews understand so clearly that most of the world still misses today?
Pilate’s wife told her husband to have nothing to do with Jesus. She had suffered in a dream. What was the truth, the fear, and the tragedy that she expresses to her husband and to us? Watch and find out.
