New Year Revolution: Love

Nothing we can do will make God love us less or love us more. Think about how that truth changes your life. Think about how that truth liberates you from the fears and self-imposed expectations that weigh you down. Think about what life would look like, how the world would change if you not only allowed yourself to be loved this way, but earnestly asked God to help you love others this way!
Sermon Text: 1 John 3:11-20

New Year Revolution: Purpose

The world teaches us that the best thing we can be doing is looking out for ourselves, promoting ourselves, satisfying ourselves. We weren’t created for this kind of living. Sooner or later it leaves us feeling empty and listless. Jesus was other-focused in his life and in his death. This is what we were created for. This changes everything for us. Sermon Text: 2 Timothy 1:8-10

New Year Revolution: Community

Rugged individualism—it’s the ideal that this country was built on. Along with the two year old we proclaim: “I can do it myself!” I don’t need anybody. But the gospel is all about God coming alongside us and fulfilling our need. We need each other. We were created to live together in community, with strengths that bless another’s weakness. The gospel compels us and empowers us to live in community.
Sermon Text: Hebrews 10:19-24

New Year Revolution – Identity

The world causes us to question ourselves. Have you made it? Are you good enough? Does your life really have any value? Way too many of us feel that we don’t measure up. But we’re looking for personal value in the wrong place. We’re looking to what we do and don’t do. We’re focused on what other people think. It’s what God thinks that truly matters. Galatians 3:26,27

Eternal Perspective (New Year’s Eve)

New Year’s helps us remember God’s presence throughout our lives. While another year is passing, and we look forward to the coming year, we recognize that in both our joys and our sorrows, God has been and is with us. It is his gracious presence in our lives that not only gives us purpose but also fills us with peace. It is his presence that gives us hope for the future. Lord, give us an eternal perspective on your presence! Psalm 90:1-17

What the World Needs: Good News

Christmas is a time when people think about and long for peace—in their own lives, in the world around us. Yet, no matter how many Christmases go by, peace continues to elude us. At least, when we’re looking for a worldly kind of peace. Christmas is truly good news, because it’s a message of true peace, peace with God and peace within ourselves. Isaiah 52:7-10

Deliverance

A wake-up call and the honest truth about ourselves—yes, we NEED these things; but, man, the truth is more than a little oppressive. What we need now is a little hope, a little help. Maybe more than a little help. We need deliverance. We need a savior! Isaiah 61:1-3, 10, 11
