Wings Like Eagles
(22:27 min.)
Isaiah 40:31
Born Again Born Again
There's a Veggie Tales movie out there that has a song that goes; "Our God is a God of Second Chances" (Jonah). But the apostle Paul asks, "What shall we say, are we to continue in sin so that grace may increase?" His answer, "May it never be!" Our God may be the God of second chances but when we come to faith in Jesus Christ? He sets out a righteous path for us that we're expected to follow.

Make Straight a Path
(26:03 min.)
Isaiah 40:3
Advent Nothing Simple About Jesus' Birth!
As you read through the Bible, as you find yourself getting into the birth narrative, what you find are many pieces of God's prophecy coming together. It's almost as if time was warping in on itself in such a way that all these prophetic arcs touch together at the event of the Christ Child's birth.

(39:32 min.)
Daniel 2:44
Advent I Have. I Will. I Am.
We are encouraged, as Christians, to look forward to a better future, to a better eternity. But remember that in doing so we should not forget the now. Scripture tells us, "Today, if you would hear His voice, do not harden your hearts". We do well to listen and obey this wisdom and guidance.

Isaiah 42:1
Advent Understanding Our Savior
The images that we cherish of Jesus Christ are not necessarily the correct ones. Let's not fall into the same trap that leadership did when Jesus walked the planet!

A Shoot Will Spring
(33:48 min.)
Isaiah 11:1
Advent Opportunities for Messaging
The beginning of Advent is all about orienting your heart and your mind towards Jesus Christ. The beginning of Advent is all about getting ready to celebrate the greatest birthday party the world has ever known. The beginning of Advent is all about setting all your trust in God the Father and Jesus the Son. The beginning of Advent is all about messaging!

Seasoned With Salt
(26:40 min.)
Colossians 4:6
Jesus at the Center Jesus is Life Fulfilling
Not only does He represent the ultimate role model for which we ought to strive. The road map that we should be using. But He is with us all through our lives. Guiding and directing. Whispering in our ears through His Holy Spirit. His Helper. And our lives make no sense, in the here and now, and throughout eternity, without Him.

November 3rd, 2019
Keep Seeking
(30:03 min.)
Colossians 3:1
Jesus is at the Center Jesus as our Foundation
If we know that Jesus Christ is at the center of our lives, then it ought to be much easier to 'walk by the Spirit'. However, we still struggle with temptation, with sin, with practical idolatry. Why is that, do you suppose? Is it possibly because we have stopped seeking Him in our lives?

(sermon starts: 5:25)

Scripture reading: Don M - Matthew 16:17-25
Frank G - commentary
October 27th, 2019
Walk in Him
(29:37 min.)
Colossians 2:6
Jesus is at the Center Jesus as our Corrective
Jesus Christ is at the center of everything. Knowing this, we need to conduct our lives like He is right there with us all the time (hint: He is!) Maybe we need a daily reminder of His presence, sort of like the wrist bracelets we used to see, WWJD. Maybe we need a daily meditation, to keep us focused on Him. What we certainly need is to abide in Him, and He will abide in us (John 15:4).

May Be Gracious
(29:59 min.)
2 Samual 12:22
Real Church Faith Healing
There's a song title out there that goes along the lines; "You Can't Always Get What You Want". But we should trust in God whether He gives us what we want, or not. Because what God gives us? Is for the good, either our good or the good of His kingdom.

October 6th, 2019
No More Room
(33:49 min.)
Mark 2:2
Real Church Keep the Sabbath Holy!
Remember the hula hoop and the yoyo? Very big deals at the time, not so much anymore. Given this line of thinking, what about Jesus? Are we forced to say, very big deal at the time but not so much anymore? Why is that, do you suppose? And once we realize where this takes us, what do we do about it?

September 29th, 2019
No Fear in Love
(40:09 min.)
1 John 4:18
Real Church Love Without Boundaries
One of our biggest perils is the door that leads out of church. Front or back, your choice. This because, in our minds, we make a distinction between our existence within the four walls of the church and our life outside the church. And this can lead to distancing ourselves from God. Not an optimal choice.

Scripture reading: Tammy B - Matthew 6:19-25
Joseph K - commentary
September 22nd, 2019
Entertained Angels
(29:30 min.)
Hebrews 13:2
Real Church Compassion in Action
We typically support those who we know and love, and distance ourselves from those with whom we are unfamiliar. This tends to be human nature being that the unknown may hold peril for us (after all, don't we teach our kids, "Stranger Danger"?). And yet, God demands that we do otherwise, holding the stranger in good regard with love and respect.

Scripture reading: Tresa L - Matthew 6:5-15
September 15th, 2019
Serving the Saints
(37:01 min.)
Romans 15:25
Real Church Following Through on Promises Made
One of the critical conditions of real church is faith that works itself out in the world. And we begin by supporting our brothers and sisters in Christ. This includes support for our missionaries and evangelists, but also for believers in need.

Administrative Note:
Due to new equipment the recording quality is not optimal. We will get it worked out eventually! Thanx for being patient!

(32:11 min.)
Luke 1:22
Don't Ride the Fence! Trust in God
We have a tendency to camp out in distrust, in disbelief. And mostly? This is a good survival instinct. But distrusting God? Disbelieving Him? Is probably not a good idea. Can I get an "Amen"?

(sermon starts: 5:20)

August 11th, 2019
In Your Name
(39:02 min.)
Matthew 7:22
Don't Ride the Fence! Three Parables About Failing God
It's tough to love God with everything you are if you start your day being busy, end your day being busy, and everything in between is a busy existence. It's tough to love your neighbor as yourself when you don't treat yourself, your own soul, with the love and respect that it requires!

(30:23 min.)
Matthew 19:21
Don't Ride the Fence! It's the Little Things that Count!

Go Therefore!
(24:44 min.)
Matthew 28:19-20
God's Ultimate Gift Is This Edifying?
What if we were to look forty years in the future? As a church. Are we going? Discipling? Baptizing? Teaching? Clearly, the purpose of church does not give us an "out" if we are smaller than, say, 200 in attendance!
