What is our aim for this coming year? How will you keep on target, and better yet, how will you succeed? Today we look at what Psalm 119 has to say.
The Seven I AM's
This Christmas morning the bells ring out. In this case, Jesus made statements of Himself that has forever changed the entirety of history and the world.
Are You Ready To Meet God...
or more precisely, are you willing to meet God? It's always been about the heart.
The Say-Do Problem
We continue our discussion of the Wise Men's journey to pay homage to Jesus. This time our perspective is affected by Herod's reaction to their visit, its ramifications, and the admonitions that can be derived from this story to each of us.
There are lots of surprises about that age old legend of the three wise men at the baby Jesus' manger. First off, Jesus was about 2 years old when they paid their visit and homage. And home was actually in a home, not a cattle stable. We're not sure if Mary and Joseph were residing in or near Jerusalem, still around Bethlehem, or already in Nazareth for sure. But let's not spoil all the detail. There's a point much deeper than merely delivering frankincense and myrrh.
The Potato Famine Is Over
This morning we have the privilege of having Jean Watson sharing with us. Jean is a well known composer, violinist, singer whose heart in ministry is rooted in sharing Jesus with the lost. Music is simply the gift God has given her as a conduit to her passion for sharing Christ. Today she shares some of her journeys in Ireland, where most of her ministry takes her, both in performance and on radio in the UK. She will also share in Luke's Gospel, discussing complete surrender, particularly in Mary's life. We hope you enjoy while Jean shares her heart.
Not FIFO, Not LIFO, But Only FILO
We're all familiar with the first two, but what's a FILO? First-In-Last-Out of course. And that's exactly what you're going to experience in Israel's journey in Chapters 3 & 4 in the book of Joshua. God's oversight, guidance, and protection will always be present.
All Of God For All Of Me
That's a pretty good summary statement for the final verses of our last session in Chapter 8 of Romans. You can't imagine how revolutionary those words that Paul, having learned from Jesus, spoke some 2000 years ago, have been and still remain. We need to read it, meditate on it, absorb it, then live it. Amen.
The Persecuted Church
Today is a special occasion. We take time each year to discuss and pray for those Christians around the world who are persecuted, many of them put to death, for their faith. Our guest speaker today is Paul Sinclair. While Paul has accomplished many things, his passion is to serve the church around the world, which he has done over the years with his wife, Lisa. What is particularly unique in Paul's report is that he interlaces specific prayers of missionaries in those areas familiar to Paul and Lisa. These prayers were given specifically for Paul to pray with us on this special day. Amazingly, one of these dear people took time to pray for us, here in America.
At the very end of Paul's message, Nancy will close and will lead the congregation in a very special rendition of "I Have Decided To Follow Jesus". You'll hear the actual song, but please listen through and use your imagination of all our dear folks sitting there following Nancy's lead. You'll get the idea when you get there. God bless these men and women, sacrificing their very lives, for Jesus name sake.
Just In Time Inventory And Sheep
Life has way too many burdens to handle. Today, Dr. Wayne Johnson gives us a fresh look at Psalm 23 and how God lifts the load that we attempt to carry on our own. There's so much more, but take the time to listen. This is a good one.
