Upward: Willingness Brings Power

John 13:34  “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.”   How can we love as Christ did? We can’t. But we can with the power He gives us, rather than depending on our human power. Still it is on us to show Jesus’…

Upward: Unworthy ≠ Worthless

(sermon begins at 16:20) Matthew 25:31-46.  To feel unworthy in God’s matchless grace is not the same as being worthless.

Inward: The Grand Chiasm

(message begins 31:00) Faith and beleif are cousins, but not identical. Do you struggle with believing? Believing in God’s care for me? In His provision? His guidance? His forgiveness?

Onward: Being Called Out, Finding Peace

(message begins at 29:30) James 1:22-25, James 2    The world is overwhelmed with instant information, instant knowledge. Anxiety and hopelessness abounds. Seeking fixes, finding more control to handle all of it seems chaotic. We try to make things right, tweaking here, tinkering there. Where does help come from? Which cure do we accept? Look…

Upward: We Have Hope, We Have Purpose

Colossians 1:27  “For God wanted them to know that the riches and glory of Christ are for you Gentiles, too. And this is the secret: Christ lives in you. This gives you assurance of sharing his glory.”  An incredible statement coming from someone who at one time wanted to kill Christians. The actions of all…
