Synopsis: Due to a covid exposure, this message from our pastor was pre-recorded since he was unable to deliver it in person to our church family. As Zechariah presents Messiah as a living hope, he focuses on the kingship of Christ. That kingship is given under three headings - His character, coming and conquering. This message focuses on Christ's coming from a famous text of Scripture typically considered on Palm Sunday.
Synopsis: Christ's kingly character assures us there is very good reason to hope in His ability to work in our behalf and to fulfill His promises to us. So what kind of character does Christ have? This coming king has four character traits that challenge us to put our hope and trust in Him.
Synopsis: As used in Scripture, God's will can be put into two broad categories. Tonight we look at the second great arena in which God's will is to be carried out--the realm of His commandments. Here, praying this third request in the Lord's Prayer, means we express a desire for obedience. The key truth is very simple but far-reaching: every born-again child of God should pray for four kinds of obedience to the revealed will of "Our Father." Tonight's message deals with the first two responses.
Synopsis: What kept the Apostle Paul from giving up in ministry when he encountered so many setbacks, hardships, pain and suffering? Our text answers that question. The way that Paul was renewed in his life and ministry is the same way we are to be renewed. God wants to renew you and us as a church in three ways!
Synopsis: Our text in Revelation 21:5 reveals God's plan and God's promise. Implied in that promise is an invitation extended to each one to accept - an invitation for a new beginning. If we can accept the fact that God will make a new Heaven and a new Earth and He has the creative power to do so, then we can also accept the reality of four other things that will bring encouragement and hope. This morning's message is part 1 of 2 from this text.
Synopsis: There are interesting parallels between what the Jewish nation and Joshua were facing as they began their new year and what we do as we begin our new year--2022. So here's the question: What or whom are you trusting for directional advice to navigate through 2022? Three truths summarize our perspective for this entire year.
Synopsis: In this final message in this month's series of Christmas messages, we look at the birth of our Savior, the Lord Jesus. The main takeaway from this morning's message is simple, direct and sincerely expressed: We must come humbly to Him as He humbled Himself and came to us.
Synopsis: In part 2 of this series of Christmas messages, we look at the life of Joseph and the type of character he revealed as he faced difficult choices. God's work within him was evident without and seen by all who had a heart like his. Are you as sensitive to and surrendered to God's will as Joseph showed himself to be when God asked him to "trust and obey?"
Synopsis: As a continuation of last week's message, tonight we look at two veins of thought that flow out of a humble heart of trusting submission as it relates to the will of God--God's providential working in our lives.
