First Things First

1 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 If I …

Access to the King

I remember watching, “Lincoln,” a few years ago, being shocked by the access that the American people had to Abraham Lincoln, the president of the United States of America during one of the most divided and horrific times in our history. In the movie, Lincoln would walk the halls of the White House, only to be greeted by citizens in …

So Much In Two Little Letters

IT. Two little letters that we merely gloss over as we read our favorite book or read through a newspaper article. IT. A pronoun. “Used to refer to a thing previously mentioned or easily identified.” Jacob (renamed Israel because he wrestled with God), was about to die. Joseph’s brothers became so fearful because they thought that Joseph was still bitter …

TWO YEARS

I cannot tell you how incredible Sunday was as we celebrated as a community what God has done in and through us over the past two years. Two years. It’s so hard to believe that we’ve been a church community for two years already. Time has flown by. And yet at the same time, It feels like it’s been so …

The Limp Is Worth It

And Jacob lifted up his eyes and looked and behold, Esau was coming, and four hundred men with him. ― Genesis 33:1 (ESV) If all that we did was read this verse by itself we would just see it as a quick description in the narrative of Jacob and Esau meeting after so many years. But the whole chapter before …

Spending Time with Jesus

As I woke up this morning and thought about our time together yesterday as a community, coming together to worship Jesus, I wanted to make sure that I gave you practical help along with the encouragement to spend time alone with Jesus. It is absolutely VITAL as believers in and followers of Christ to get alone with him. Why? Paul …

It’s That Simple

READ SCRIPTURE: January 2, 2019 “When Enoch had lived 65 years, he fathered Methuselah. Enoch walked with God after he fathered Methuselah 300 years and had others sons and daughters. Thus all the days of Enoch were 365 years. Enoch walked with God, and he was not, for God took him.” ― Genesis 5:21-24 (ESV) That’s all that we know. …
