John 9:1-3 Hurricanes, earthquakes, medical issues, accidents, violence… why do bad things happen? It’s not always – in fact rarely – God “punishing us.” Join us this week as we see what is going on “when things go wrong.”
John 8:33-59 The debate continues. Jesus says He speaks in perfect accord with His Father. The Jews claim he is illegitimate, is a Samaritan, is demon possessed. These same Jews assert THEY are descendants of Abraham… a true statement, but without the benefit they expect. Jesus ends the debate with a clear statement – before […]
John 8:13-33 What do you do if someone calls you a liar? The Pharisees did that to Jesus – claiming His testimony was false. But Jesus makes an appeal that stirs the pot even more – if you’re a Pharisee. He claims perfect accord with the Father!
John 8:12-29 As opposition grows, the verbal attacks also grow in intensity. They challenge his words, they call him a liar; they call for his demise. Donald Trump? Nope… Jesus. But in the midst of that darkness, He had something else to say.
John 8:1-11 “What did Jesus write in the sand?” I’ve heard the question; I’ve read many “answers.” But that’s not the most important issue in the text (it’s actually not important – I’ll prove it Sunday!). The most important issue is, what happens when legalism (rules) crosses grace?
John 7:41-52 For years, the advertising slogan for the brokerage firm, E. F. Hutton, was, “When E. F. Hutton talks, people listen.” A once-popular perfume, “Whisper,” had as its slogan, “If you want to capture someone’s attention, whisper!” In both cases, the slogan centered on the ideas of paying attention.

Ephesians 3:14-21 Our oldest son has become addicted to the gym and he works out constantly. We haven’t seen him in almost a year and when he finally came home, it was visibly noticeable how strong he had gotten. He told me he was dead lifting 415lbs, squatting 315lbs, and benching 295lbs.

2 Timothy 3:10-17 Almost 20 years ago, the reality competition show Survivor became a big hit on TV. The show usually followed two teams or “tribes” of people in an isolated location. These teams faced unusual challenges. Many were physical in nature, but there were also mental and psychological games going on between players and […]
Psalm 23 Psalm 23 is probably the most well known Psalm of the entire book. This Psalm of comfort gives us a glimpse into the intimate relationship David enjoyed as he walked daily with the Lord. This Sunday, Charlie Bing will lead us through this beautiful song, reminding us of God’s shepherding care over all […]
