Raised to New Life

April 5, 2015

In Matthew 28 we read about the resurrection of Jesus. And then Jesus, the One who has been given all authority, tells his disciples to make disciples and baptize others who become disciples of Jesus. Baptism is a tricky subject. What does the bible teach us about baptism and what’s it have to do with the resurrection of Jesus? Baptism is an act of obedience to the command of Jesus. Baptism shows we are willing to be disciples of Jesus. Baptism shows we are united with Jesus in his death, burial and resurrection. Baptism assures us that not only are we His, but He is our’s!

Alive Together with Him

February 1, 2015

If you are a Christian, we've been made alive together with Jesus through his death and resurrection. We don't need to add to what he did to really live, and because he purchased our freedom from sin and death we are not free to live any way we choose. No, as we received Jesus, by faith, we walk in Him every day!

Make Spiritual Friendships

January 4, 2015

We were created out of an eternal friendship, and we were made for friendships. You need spiritual friendships to flourish as a follower of Christ. Spiritual friendships help you meet the challenges of being a husband, father, wife, mom, neighbor, or friend. Spiritual friendships provide correction when you start to wander, direction when you're confused, comfort when you're hurting and grace when you've wandered and hurt yourself and others.

A Faithful Minister

January 11, 2015

Rather than asking, "when will get a Pastor, ask, what sort of pastor should we pray the Father brings us. So what's a faithful pastor do?

He brings the gospel to people who haven't heard it. (He knows the gospel- it's not advice, it's news;)

He disciples those who receive it. (Helping them come to lives of faith-active trust in Christ, hope-for heaven, the coming of the kingdom, love-for all the saints. You are a disciple of Jesus when these 3 are at work in you.)

He prays for them to grow by it. (4 things to pray; that you will know what God wants for you, that you will do what God tells you, that you will be strengthened by his power, that you will be grateful for all he accomplished in you.)

He is the Head of the Body

January 18, 2015

If Jesus is going to be preeminent in His Church and over our individual lives, then we cannot make less of Him than He is, and we cannot attempt to add to what He has accomplished for us!

Him We Proclaim

January 25, 2015

Jesus is the content, object and goal of our personal and corporate evangelism. We must proclaim the gospel - we must speak it. And in speaking the gospel, we warn and teach. So, sharing the Gospel of Christ isn't just emotional appeal - "what if you died tonight?" And it's not simply an intellectual appeal - "Jesus is Lord of all." To share Christ we should warn and press for a commitment to Christ, but we must be patient enough to teach and depend on the Spirit to bring our friend, neighbor, co-worker, relative to Christ.

The Death of the Savior

December 21, 2014

In reality we know very little about the details of the birth of Jesus. What we do know is that he came to save his people from their sins. Looking at Is. 52-53, we will learn about the appearance of our Savior who was not physically noticeable, but spiritually compelling: his acceptance; not so much, as he was rejected by all, including us and His father: his attitude, not a word in his own defense, but a trusting obedience in the face of death: the cross was not for nothing, as many will receive an eternal portion of His reward!

Swelling Hopes

November 23, 2014

Isaiah tells the story of two kings. One bad (Ahaz) and one good (Hezekiah). Yet even Hezekiah who shows tremendous faith (36-37), still fails as a king, spiritual leader, and man (39). Like many Christian heroes since, Hezekiah’s blemish disappoints and at the same time increases the yearning in our hearts for someone who won’t. In the midst of disappointment and desolation, Isaiah tells us about a person who will reign with wisdom and understanding. He will establish God’s peace and restore creation to its perfect beginnings.
