The Open Book Test

As Christians we all find ourselves taking a “test”. The Apostle Peter (1 Peter 1:6-9) tells us that the “testing” of our faith is more precious than gold while James (1:2-5) lets us know that God has wisdom for us as we take this test – The Open Book Test.

Who’s The Boss?

The scripture (1 Corinthians 2:9-16) tells us that as believers in Jesus we have access to a wisdom that the “natural” man cannot understand or appreciate. A natural man takes his cues from this natural world (see, hear, touch, taste, feel) but a spiritual man takes his cues from the Spirit of God. This is why we (as believers) are constantly at odds with the culture of this word. We’re under two completely different authorities – Who’s The Boss?

Putting Your Hope In God

We’re living in days where everything that can be shaken is being shaken (governments, markets, social structures). If our hope is in any of these things then we’ll be shaken too. Jesus said men’s hearts will actually fail them for fear of the things coming on the earth but that when these things begin to happen we’re to “look up” because our redemption is near (Luke 21:26-28). In this message we look at God’s hope filled promises that anchor our soul as we reach our world with the Gospel – Putting Your Hope In God.

Dealing With Self-Hatred

There are many scriptures about not hating people but what about self-hatred? So many times our frustration towards people and life can stem from a root of self-hatred. This is when “loving others as you love yourself” can have damaging consequences – Dealing With Self-Hatred.

Messy Faith

God has told us (Ephesians 2:10) that we are His workmanship and that He’s designed paths for us to take ahead of time. Sometimes we can get a romantic idea of God’s plan as always being perfectly straight clean lines. However, there’s another scripture in Proverbs 14:4 that tells us that a messy trough is a productive trough. In this message we’re going to look at several examples of faith that were clearly God but definitely not straight lines – Messy Faith.

Boldness (Jodi Eash)

True boldness comes from being more impressed with God’s power and ability than the threatening roars of the enemies of God. It is an hour to be strong in the Lord and in the power of HIS might – Boldness (Jodi Eash).

Persecution – How To Handle It

Before Jesus went to the cross He gave his disciples this specific warning, “If they persecuted Me, they will persecute you also”. Paul told Timothy that anyone who lives godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. In this message we look at how to handle this part of our Christian experience. Persecution – How To Handle It.

Getting Strong In The Lord

The Apostle Paul wrote in Ephesians 6:10 that we’re to be “strong in the Lord and in the power of His might”. Shortly before Jesus ascended into heaven He said in Matthew 28:19 to “make disciples of all nations”. In this message we look at the connection between spiritual discipline and being strong in the Lord – Getting Strong In The Lord.

Letting Peace Rule

The Apostle Paul instructed the Colossian church to “let the peace of God rule” in their hearts. The Amplified version of this passage suggests that we allow God’s peace to act as an umpire in our lives to settle with finality all the questions that rise in our minds. In this message we’re going to look at how we can work with the Holy Spirit as His peace calls “safe & out” with the decisions we face – Letting Peace Rule.

Rejoice In The Lord

There’s a powerful passage of scripture in Philippians 4:6 where the Apostle Paul admonishes us to not worry about anything but to pray about everything. However, before that instruction we are told to first do something else. Philippians 4:4 states, “Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say rejoice!”. Let’s look at how the act of rejoicing (verse 4) prepares our heart to pray (verse 6) – Rejoice In The Lord.

The God Who Stays

Perhaps one of the most powerful passages of scripture regarding the love of God is found in Romans 8:38-39 where Paul itemizes all the things which CANNOT separate us from God’s Love. Matthew West wrote a beautiful song capturing the essence of these verses. This song is also the inspiration for the title of this message – The God Who Stays.

Freedom Conclusions

The Bible talks about a “good” kind of comparison where we compare spiritual things with other spiritual things. Jesus said that His yoke is easy and that His burden is light. In this message we’re going to compare the freedom we experienced in our salvation with the ongoing freedom we enjoy as believers – Freedom Conclusions.
