The 150 psalms of the Bible are sometimes called the hymnbook of ancient Israel. We can sing them, too. But when we read them, we can interact with them and receive more of the mind and heart of the Lord. Find out more about what the psalms say, how the psalms say it, and how you can receive the most out of them.
Messed up human (you) sanctified by Jesus equals HOLY.
The Old Testament isn’t old by any means! As we press on in our study we’ll cover the Book of 1 Samuel today, focusing on the opening story of this narrative portion of the Bible. An amazing woman, Hannah, is the focus of chapter one and she represents everyone who has ever found that comparison between people can be a harsh reality. God shows us how to handle this all too common situation through Hannah’s story.
Ruth is one of the great jewels of the Scriptures, set against one of the darkest periods in Israel’s history. It’s a well-told story, and a rouching romance. But it’s so much more than that. This sermon highlights Ruth’s steadfast faithfulness, and the multiple ways she was blessed by God.

The story of Judges is the story of a people who have moved far away from God. They have substituted their thoughts and plans for his, with disastrous results. We can save ourselves a great deal of pain and trouble in learning from their mistakes.
Notes coming soon…
Today we move on to the Book of Joshua! In the first eight chapters of this amazing record we find that a new man is leading the nation of Israel: Joshua. He was Moses’ assistant for many years, but now that Moses is gone, he must take the lead. And he learns, and we learn, that what you cannot righteously run away from, will define who you are.
Today we continue on in our study of the Old Testament, this week covering the entire book of Deuteronomy! As we’ve discovered in previous weeks, there are overall themes in these large books and today is no exception. Deuteronomy is all about large life transitions. We all go through them, but we don’t all go through them smoothly. Today we find the keys to a successful transition, no matter where or when it occurs in life.
We’re pressing on in our study of the Old Testament and this week’s message is the Book of Numbers. Yes, the whole book! Actually we’re discovering Numbers’ powerful theme and understanding that God is so gracious in His dealings with mankind at every stage of history. And the references to the Lord Jesus; they’re everywhere in this book!
