Synopsis: There are many conceptions about angels - including the idea that people becomes angels when they die. What does the Bible say about the nature of angels? This message surveys Scripture to discover the answer.
Synopsis: In this fifth message in our survey of Mark's gospel, we discover another portrait of Christ given to us--The Sin-forgiving Savior. That raises two questions: 1) What gives Christ the right to be declared so and to act in that capacity? and 2) Why is this so critical of a portrait to see? The answers are presented very clearly in this second gospel of the New Testament!
Synopsis: Tonight's message continues a look at the origins of angels--when they were created and how many of them were created. We learn from their creation, important lessons about our own creation and how we find fulfillment in living.
Synopsis: Today we look at a second portrait of Jesus that John Mark presents to us in His gospel. We're surveying this gospel to answer the question posed by our text, "What manner of man is this?" No one else can do what He does nor speaks like He does! No man died like He did!
Synopsis: In this first message in the series on the Gospel of Mark, we note the purpose in writing this gospel and summarize the message of this book in one sentence. When that message is embraced, born-again believers will be expressing the distinctiveness of a Christianity that "shines as light" in a dark world!
Synopsis: This message covers the last two statements of Psalm 118:6 which grow out of the conviction expressed by the first statement in v. 6. There is a cause/effect relationship here. Once we embrace the first truth, we can enjoy and employ the perspectives found in the second and third statements the Psalmist declares. What is said has nothing to do with having a certain personality type enabling one to enjoy what is said. It has everything to do with taking what God says at face value and living in the reality of it. When we do, this verse tells us what that looks like in life.
Synopsis: All eyes are upon Hurricane Dorian as it slams into the Bahamas with sustained winds at 185 mph - a strong Category 5 storm. Storms naturally carry a lot of uncertainties and with them the temptations to worry and fear--whether those storms are meteorological in nature or circumstantial. During these times it is good for us to fill our minds with the certainties of God's nature, character and work. Doing so, we can know the calm that is to be found "in the eye of the storm."
Synopsis: Psalm 118:6 is one of those verses that can function as "An Anchor for The Soul," for one’s life. It’s a stabilizing & securing truth; it's a great text to quote to one’s self when going through times of distress as the psalmist did & to receive assurance as he did. There are three truths about our God that I want us to notice in this text. This morning's message presents the first one: the LORD is my constant Companion.
