Everyone wants to know what their direction in life ought to be. But can we really know that sort of thing? Isn’t life what we make it? To some degree life is what we make it, but only to a small degree. Our direction, our steps, are ordered by a Director of the highest authority and today we find the keys to knowing what that direction is.
We freshly discover today that God Himself is first. First in the Universe, first in creation and first in, well, everything. The challenge is for us as people to put Him first in our lives, out of love and devotion to God. There are two areas of life to consider primarily: our time /attention and our finances.
In the Book of Philippians there’s a brief but pointed message to two godly women, Euodia and Syntyche. Paul “implored” them to get their relationship right! So what goes into making relationships work? This message has some great directives from the Bible to help in any and all relationships.
After last week’s mass shooting in Las Vegas we needed to talk about the subject of anxiety. The news and our instant access to it can make us all jittery, even obsessed with what might go wrong. Are there disasters waiting around the corner? And what about my normal worries? Is there a way to deal with this that’s real and helpful? God does have a very potent answer.
This second message in a series called “Promises, Promises” is also about covenant, but with a different twist. We’ll compare covenant, contract and promises and find that each has its place in our lives now. We’ll also find out what David and Jonathan did in regard to covenant and how what they did means a great deal to us.
This is part one of a three part series on the subject of covenant. That probably sounds too theological or boring or just unfamiliar, but covenant, or the lack therof, is the primary reason for mistrust, brokenness and trouble in our world. Find out what covenant means, how it’s supposed to look and how to restore or make one and find new security and trust.
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!
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.
