The Certainty of Salvation

They say that in life the only things that are certain are death and taxes. Well, that is certainly untrue. God, who cannot lie, tells us what is certain in life So, when life seems uncertain, it is on those times that we must rely on the certainty of God and His promises. This Sunday, […]

Making Sense Of The Mess


1 Peter 1:1-2 What in the world is going on? Have you ever thought that to yourself as you tried to make sense of the mess you’ve found yourself in? Maybe you’ve thought that as you’ve watched the news or someone else’s life as it seemingly unraveled. Life often doesn’t make sense. As a believer, we […]

Cause For Hope


1 Peter 1:3 Do you ever feel like the world is spinning out of control? Do you ever feel like your own life is on a hopeless trajectory heading towards disaster? You’re not alone. Even Jesus’ closest followers felt that way after the death of their beloved Messiah. But their hopelessness turned into hopefulness one Sunday morning. What […]

Jesus Died For You


1 Peter 2:21-24, Isaiah 53:3-6 Why did Jesus have to die? What was so bad, that it required the sinless Son of God to shed His blood and give up His life? In a word, “sin”, Because of God’s great love for us, sin was the barrier between us and God. Only one mediator, only […]

Jesus Lived for You – Part 2


We are exhorted in Philippians 2:5 to ” Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus,” How can a believer have the same attitude, or mind of Christ, when Jesus was God?

Jesus Lived 4 You – Part 1


Philippians 2:5-8 Have you ever met a believer who was hard to relate to? They seemed so “spiritual” that you sensed they wouldn’t be able to understand someone like you that still struggled? Me too! Well, Jesus was not that man. Jesus became man and dwelt among us (John 1:14). Why? Well, for many reasons but […]

Jesus Came For You!


“For God so loved the world…” We’ve heard that a million times. So often in fact, that it often loses its impact. God is a relational God. His desire is for a personal relationship with us, personally. So, as I’ve heard before, insert your name where the world is. Go ahead, do it now. For […]

1 Mission: Get Right! Part 2


2 Corinthians 5:17-20 If we were to talk with God right now and ask Him, “Father, what is it that you would have me do with the rest of my time here on earth?” I think He would say, “Tell people of My love for them.” Of all God’s attributes, it’s difficult to say that […]

1 Mission: Get Right


2 Corinthians 5:17-19 What is our mission in life? Why are we still allowed to live and breathe and have our being? For what purpose did God save us, call us, and leave us here on this sin-sick rock we call earth? This Sunday, we will explore the answer to these questions and hone in […]

1 Mission: Get Busy


1 Corinthians 15:50-58 God tells us through the Apostle Paul, “Therefore, my beloved brothers and sisters, be firm, immovable, always excelling in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.” Living out our faith is work. It’s labor. It’s actually hard work that doesn’t end until we […]
