God & Anger

As he and his people wander the desert, Moses is tired. The walking is exhausting, but even worse is the constant complaining from his people. They don’t trust that the God who rescued them from the Egyptians and parted the Red Sea for them would provide for them as they journeyed to the Promised Land. And so, when God tells Moses to speak to the rock to provide water to the Israelites, Moses’ trust faltered. His anger bubbled over and,…

God & Anxiety

In Luke 10, we hear the famous story of Mary and Martha. When Jesus arrives for dinner, Martha has a list a mile long of things to prepare for a supper with her Savior. Understandably, she gets frustrated with her sister Mary as she “sits around” rather than helping. Jesus gently teaches Martha that taking time with Him is the right thing to do. Like Martha, moms have a to-do list a mile and a half long, and it seems…

Everyday Christmas

Buddy the Elf is a bit overwhelming to his newfound father, Walter. Buddy’s obsession with Christmas – particularly singing Christmas songs loudly – is foreign to Walter, who is a no-nonsense businessman. However, when he is faced with the possibility of losing his son forever, Walter joins in the Christmas chorus to bring Buddy home. Christmas gets built up in our minds as a list of expectations and to-do items. We sometimes find ourselves glad that it’s over. But Jesus…

David & Absalom

David fathered dozens of children. Unfortunately, he missed the mark on disciplining many of them. The consequences of David’s parenting failures resulted in his son Absalom killing his brother and attempting to steal the kingdom from his father.

Rest Over Exhaustion

We often avoid rest, choosing exhaustion instead. We spend so much time trying to be perfect at whatever we do. We don’t want to let people down. We want to feel loved and needed.

Hope for the Future

As we look into the future, the battles and struggles of life are real. From sickness to relationship issues to stress, they all take a toll on us. But Jesus brings you a hope that sets you free from the handcuffs of hurt, from the chains of chaos, from the Devil’s discouragement and sure death. This hope is an eternal hope for the future that is out of this world. Sermon Text: Jeremiah 29:11
faithful, self-control

Peace, Not Tolerance

In order to achieve peace, we often compromise. Even though we don’t agree with someone’s viewpoint or actions, we tolerate it because we want to keep the peace. We tolerate our circumstances, but we aren’t content in them. True peace comes from God, from immersing ourselves in his promises and knowing that his love for us never fails. Scriptures: Psalm 16 Sermon Text: John 14:26-27
