In this past week’s sermon, we saw Jesus do the unthinkable.  Instead of being disgusted and rejecting a contagious leper he was moved with compassion, reached out to the leper, touched him and healed him.  As everyone else was probably shouting frantically for the leper to get away and shuffling back in disgust and fear,…

Blessed Healing & Suffering This past Sunday we were in Mark 1:29-39.  In this passage, we saw Jesus demonstrate his authority over the physical and the spiritual.  He healed Peter’s mother-in-law right after the Sabbath service and later that evening the people of Capernaum brought to him masses of sick people and the demon oppressed…

This past Sunday we were in Mark 1:21-28 and saw Jesus exercise his matchless authority concerning truth and the spiritual realm.  He entered into the synagogue in Capernaum, cracked open the Scriptures and spoke with authority.  He didn’t offer viewpoints.  No, as God, he presented the view, truth.  And whenever truth is proclaimed falsehood raises…

This past Sunday we were reminded of just how good the good news of Jesus Christ really is in Mark 1:1-8.  And in that reminder, we were introduced to John the Baptist who viewed Jesus Christ as the ultimate news.  And while we observed John the Baptist view of Christ we came across some interesting…

This past week we finished our series in the book of Jonah. In Jonah 4 we got to see God’s grace poured out on Jonah all the more. Right after the people of Nineveh repented and God relented from the disaster they earned, Jonah was irate. The literal translation of Jonah 1:1 is, “It was…

This past Sunday we went through Philippians 4:20-23 and saw Paul end this letter of joy just as he started it in Phil. 1:1-2, with grace.  In verse 20 Paul praise our mighty God and then in verse 21 Paul graciously greeted everyone in the church.  Not just his click, the people who haven’t hurt…

In the past sermon on Philippians 4:10-20, we saw how we can replace our drama (drawing a ridiculous amount of attention on our incapability instead of God’s capability and making fools of ourselves) with joyful maturity when we practice what we preach, restrain our imagination, exercise contentment in Christ and sacrificially give like Christ. And…

This past Sunday we went through Philippians 4:2-9.  And in this passage, we saw seven antidotes or seven powerful ways to combat the poison of disunity: getting passed our fear and addressing it (4:2), discernment (4:3), a longing for restoration (4:3), divine confidence (4:4), reasonable prayer (4:5-7), never losing sight of God’s blessings (4:8) and…

A CALL TO PRAISE Last Sunday (10/23/2016) we took a break from our Philippians Series and dove into Psalms 150 which is all about, as the first line says, praising the LORD!  And when we came to the first line of verse two (Praise Him for His mighty acts…) we discussed our salvation.  How God…

In our last sermon in our Philippians Series we reviewed verses one through three and went on to cover verses four through eleven in chapter three. In these verses we saw Paul emphatically denounce salvation by our works and proclaim beyond the shadow of a doubt that our salvation, or acceptance by God, is based…
