David & Jonathan

Saul sees David as a major threat and wants to get rid of him. Despite this, Saul’s son Jonathan follows God’s will by aligning himself with David. This was not an easy decision, as going against the king was going to cost him. But to do the opposite – go against God’s will – would cost him even more. Jonathan rejoices in David’s position, even though it means he loses everything. We must be careful not to be blind with…

God’s Call to Mothers

Moms often feel like the work they do for their families and communities goes unnoticed. However, mothers play essential roles in God’s kingdom. God has called mothers not only to create new life, but to nurture, care, and guide God’s children so that they might bless thousands of generations. Sermon Text: 2 Timothy 1:3-7

Hope in Doubt

With advertising, scammers, and social media, we are forced to be skeptics. If we don’t second guess what people tell us, we run the risk of being taken advantage of. But all this doubt can leave us feeling hopeless as we wonder if we can believe anything we hear. Thomas felt the same way as you. He heard that Jesus was alive, but he didn’t want to believe it until he saw and touched Jesus. And then, when Jesus appeared…

Resist Temptation, Embrace Trials

Temptation looks different for everyone. But no matter what it looks like for you, something disguised as acceptable by our culture tempts your sinful heart. Whether it’s food, images, people, or something else, there are tons of things that can pull us far away from what God wants for our lives. It’s easy to slide from temptation into sin, but you can resist with the help of God. Trials are opportunities for us to grow in faith and mature in…

Ash Wednesday 2021

Ash Wednesday marks the start of Lent, a time to prepare our hearts and minds for Easter. Preparing for Christmas is easier than preparing for Easter. Not only do we get lots of help from society to celebrate Christmas, it’s just easier to buy something than to fast from something. It is easier to talk about the birth of a baby than the death of our Savior. But we need Lent. We need to take the time to face our…

Faith Over Feelings

Our feelings are so untrustworthy because they are always changing. And our feelings are affected by sin. But we don’t have to be tossed back and forth by our feelings. We’re called, not to live by our feelings, but to live by faith. Our faith is rock solid if we have placed it in God—the unchanging, perfect, eternal, sovereign One. This faith is founded on the infallible, certain, life-changing, authoritative Word of God. Bring renewal to your life by relying…

Worship Over Worry

We constantly find disappointment in the things of this world, and so we worry. We worry that things are not going to go the way we want We worry that we want be able to handle it. We worry that we don’t add up. When we worship instead of worry, we take our eyes and minds of ourselves and look to God, who is our creator, redeemer, and provider. He renews us through the good news of Jesus in Word…

United in Christ

No matter who is in the White House, Christians pledge their ultimate allegiance to King Jesus. Paul tells us that Jesus is seated at the right hand of God, ruling over all things for the good of the Church. He did this to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ. Elections for our government don’t need to make or break you. In Christ, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. We are united…

Grow in Faith

Do you think you can grow in faith? Or are you stuck? We know that Scripture is “God-breathed” and is “useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness”. But many of us have difficulty building a habit in reading God’s word regularly. We may perceive time constraints or feel intimidated by the size or complexity of the Bible. But we can all grow in faith. Using tools such as devotion series, reading plans, and videos on Scriptures helps us…

Who Told You… Science Disproves God?

Science is about discovering how and why things work. Biology can teach you why blood clots, Chemistry explains why certain ingredients make a cake rise, and so on. These principles are not contrary to what Jesus commands us to do when he tells us to practice science and observe the natural world. The problem is that some people believe science disproves a need for a Creator. However, just because we might know scientifically how something works doesn’t disprove the Creator…

Live for God

Jesus is a life-changer. People who were once lost in sin are now alive in Christ. Peter reminds his readers of this when he writes, “they do not live the rest of their earthly lives for evil human desires, but rather for the will of God.” Live for God as seen in your purity and unity. This may not be popular in a culture who is against Christ, but God has you where you are to share the Gospel. Lead…

Wanting the Real God

Jonah’s in too deep. Literally. As he sits in the belly of the fish, Jonah prays a prayer of repentance and thankfulness to God. Jonah recognizes how God is working on his heart so he can share God with the people of Ninevah. We too find ourselves in the pit of despair, and it’s here where we recognize our deep need for a Savior. Moments like this help us see clearly why we need to share Jesus with the world,…
