Loving A World That Hates You

Jesus warned us that this world we live in is going to hate us because it hated Him. Yet, we’re supposed to reach this world with the love of God…whom they hate. How does that work? – Loving A World That Hates You.

Fixing Your Gaze

The Apostle Paul prophesied that the church would be in for some “perilous times”. We’d probably refer to them as “rough sledding” or “crazy days”. The children of Israel had many similar experiences throughout their history as they walked with God. On one occasion their camp was filled with poisonous snakes and the only way one could be healed was to block out all the chaos and steadily gaze at a bronze snake on a pole – Fixing Your Gaze.

How’s It Going?

We’re used to having various types of “check-ups”. It may be an annual physical examination, a mid-term report card, or even a tune-up on a car. The scripture tells us (2 Corinthians 13:5) to “examine ourselves” to see if we’re in the faith. In the same way we maintain our physical bodies we’re told to maintain our faith…to have periodic “check-ups”. It’s easy to be critical of people, the world we live in, or even “the problem with the Body of Christ today”, but what about you personally? – How’s It Going?

Fear Not November

The Apostle Paul encouraged Timothy in the midst of the early church persecution that God had not given him a spirit of fear (2 Timothy 1:7). Now more than ever we need to be reminded of this truth especially as we’re heading into November 2020. There have been many things predicted and prophesied regarding this month which may be causing fear and trepidation in your heart – Fear Not November.

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).
