Synopsis: Isn't it amazing how even how a person whom many would call today, "godly," can still struggle with doubt and unbelief in God's message when it seems to counter reality as we understand it in our circumstances? Tonight's message challenges us to either choose to stand in the presence of our fears, our doubts or our unbelief or solidly on the promises of God and in the presence of God.
Synopsis: Ever hear someone say, "The Devil made me do it!" or "I couldn't help it!" or "It was so-and-so's fault that I responded wrongly..." etc.? We come up with all kinds of justifications for our wrong attitudes and actions, but if we are to deal successfully with temptation, we must know the truth about it. That truth is found in our text today and so is the much needed help in dealing successfully with it.
Synopsis: "When we get to Heaven, God won't ask us how much we know. He will ask us about what we did with what we knew." After a video presentation about a new Spanish ministry, Pastor Phillips shares a message exhorting us to touch the lives of others for eternity. From Matthew 9:35-38, he presents three motivations for missionary involvement.
Synopsis: Tonight's message continues where the last one ended. Your mind is your battleground and you are your own worst enemy. We don't have to think in ways that are characteristic of the unsaved man's nature: at salvation we were given a new nature and so can learn to think a new way. From which closet are you pulling out what you mentally dress yourself with--the unsaved man's or the saved man's?
Synopsis: In tonight's message, three pictures of the Christian life are presented--farmer, athlete, and soldier. In particular, this message focuses on the last of these images and challenges us to recognize who our greatest enemy is with which we are engaged in conflict.
Synopsis: As God looked at the nation of Judah, He found no man who would intercede in their behalf. Why would God be appalled, astonished at the tragic neglect of prayer? This message looks at three reasons.
Synopsis: In the previous message we looked at the first way we can see the invisible God. Today's message looks at the second way--with the eye of faith. What is faith? How is it expressed? Hebrews 11 reveals the answer.
Synopsis: Where did all these heroes of the Faith in Hebrews 11, named and unnamed, get the ability to endure the hardships of life and how did they do so? Hebrews 11:27 tells us how Moses lived by faith and it presents the key for us as well. Moses saw "Him Who is invisible." How do you see Him Who is invisible? There are three ways to do so. This message presents the first of these three ways.
