This is the end of a three part series of messages taken from the Old Testament Book of Nehemiah. In this series we have asked three questions: Do I care? Do I trust? And now today, Do I work?
The amazing events of Nehemiah are undoubtedly powered by the Lord Himself. But f we’re honest we have to ask ourselves, if someone didn’t actually do the work and make the sacrifices, would this rebuilding effort ever have happened? Find out if God actually needs us. And I say that reverently…
This message is a part two of a three part series on the Book of Nehemiah. Today we ask the question: “Do I Trust?”
Nehemiah finds himself in a very high risk/high reward situation and with the stakes that high, he needs to trust someone. Is it a person, is it himself or is it God Himself? Whom you trust makes or breaks you!
This begins a miniseries of messages taken from the Book of Nehemiah in the Old Testament. Today we take a hard look at chapter one where we meet Nehemiah, a man with a solid job and great life who has to answer the question: Do I Care? His dilemma has lots of application for we who live in 2017!
We finish our walk through the Old Testament with a look at how the exiles returning from Babylon started over. What the Lord did with them provides incredible direction for us when we need to start over in our own lives. And can God rewrite history? Yes, He can and He did!
As we near the end of our study of Old Testament, we find Judah conquered and its people exiled in Babylon. Where was God in all this? It turns out He was everywhere–He was all over it! And He is for us in our hard times as well.
Psalms 139 is a real gem! It tells us fundamental things about who God is and what He’s like. It also tells us what we should be like in the face of those characteristics and actions of God. This Psalm needs to be read repeatedly in our Christian life but it needs to be understood by every person in this world because there are implications for all.
We cover thousands of years in this sermon, demonstrating how Israel’s kings and the activities of the Temple’s High Priest all point to Jesus. He is the Ruler of the Kingdom of God, and our High Priest who is always making intercession for us.
Today’s message is a just a slight detour from our long term series on the Old Testament. We’ve been studying the books in order, but today we consider Psalms 121. In it, we find a Hebrew word that is repeated six times and tells us just where to go to be helped in life’s challenges.
On Fathers Day we can’t help but speak about the unique role and responsibilities of fathers. There is an unmistakable influence and legacy that fathers leave in their wake. Unfortunately, fatherless-ness is the common plague of our times. What should a good father look like and what do you do if you aren’t one or never had a good one? Discover that the Bible has lots to say on what fathering is supposed to, and can, be.
For Youth Sunday, Youth Pastor Ian talks specifically on the importance of making disciples of the younger generation. In the Great Commission, Jesus calls us to go make disciples. Unlike the Pharisees, who talked the talk but didn’t walk the walk, Jesus never told his disciples to do something that He didn’t also do Himself (raise the dead, heal the sick, cast out demons). The way He mentored his disciples gave them the confidence to live out those tall orders of raising the dead, healing the sick, etc. It is our calling to not only tell our youth the way to go, but to show them with our day to day actions.
