     | 4,074 views

    The power of choice is considerable...so are the consequences. How can we make responsible choices that honor God?

    The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all those who practice it have a good understanding. His praise endures forever. Psalm 111:10 (NRSVA) Croft Pentz is quoted as saying: Of all creation, only man can say yes or no to God. This message is all about our freedom ...read more

    What is our purpose in life? What kind of worldview ought we to have?

    For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time ...read more

    What is God like? Why Should I believe in Him?

    1In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be… Genesis 1:1-3a (KJV) In the same way that a novel-writer will not ...read more

    You can go from Hero to Zero in a nanosecond in this world. You can turn it around

    Comfort, O comfort my people, says your God. Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and cry to her that she has served her term, that her penalty is paid, that she has received from the LORD’S hand double for all her sins. A voice cries out: “In the wilderness prepare the way of the LORD, ...read more

    On Thanksgiving: I am thankful I am not a Butterball turkey. There is one thing, above all, for which I give thanks, the lift of Jesus! Like the great old hymn says, love lifted me

    Thanksgiving is a time for expressing our thanks for God’s providence and blessing. I am thankful that teenagers do grow up and eventually have teenagers of their own. I am thankful I am not a Butterball turkey. There is one thing, above all, for which I give thanks, the lift of Jesus! Like the ...read more

  • Restore Us, O Lord God

    Contributed by Russell Brownworth on Dec 5, 2005
    based on 15 ratings
     | 10,181 views

    This text is a prayer of desperation! It is the prayer of people who were once used to having God’s presence and God’s power – that power being long absent and sorely missed. It is the prayer of one out of touch with God.

    based on 11 ratings

    Beyond salvation, we must be serving. Christians don’t know when He will return, but we know WHAT He expects! We know what to BE, and what to DO.....

    A newspaper (Houston Chronicle, 11/3/92, p.11a), printed an article some years ago about the church known as Mission for the Coming Days. That “church” disbanded on Nov 2, 1992. The pastor had been put in jail...(for a very good reason)! It seems that his central message was the return of Christ ...read more

  • In The Land Of Beginning Again

     | 2,177 views

    We would all like a second (maybe a thousandth) chance...a clean start; God offers that.

    Who hasn’t looked back over his life and with nostalgia welling-up wished for a new start? Rare, indeed, is the person who has never said, "If I had my life to live over again, I’d..." "I wish there was some wonderful place Called the land of beginning again, Where all our mistakes And ...read more

    This passage reveals the character and attitude of Paul in at least two ways that, if we will follow his example, will allow us to be the kind of people who run the race well.

    If anyone else has reason to be confident in the flesh, I have more: 5circumcised on the eighth day, a member of the people of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew born of Hebrews; as to the law, a Pharisee; 6as to zeal, a persecutor of the church; as to righteousness under the law, ...read more

  • Questioning God

    based on 13 ratings
     | 2,684 views

    Have you "said no" to God in something He has made plain to you that He wants? It isn’t too late. Have you "said yes," and not followed through? It’s not too late to regroup.

    The greatest thing God will give you is your freedom in Jesus Christ. It’s a promise from the Father, and His promises don’t wither or fade - they last forever! This morning’s text is all about God’s will, and people that obey, or don’t. That is a simple truth everyone can understand. That’s ...read more

    Spiritually-speaking we have a lot of silent alarms today. The duty of the watchman is to sound the alarm.

    September 4, 2005 (Labor Day Weekend) So you, mortal, I have made a sentinel for the house of Israel; whenever you hear a word from my mouth, you shall give them warning from me. If I say to the wicked, "O wicked ones, you shall surely die," and you do not speak to warn the wicked to turn from ...read more

    Children are defenseless and it is up to us to seek justice for them

    Seek good and not evil, that you may live; and so the LORD, the God of hosts, will be with you, just as you have said.

    We struggle or we don’t grow. Jacob gives us the keys for how to struggle (and how NOT to struggle).

    THE PASTOR’S POINTS (The view from my garden) Wrestling with God Genesis 32:1-27 Of all the mysteries I would like solved before I die, it is the one that says you must struggle if you are going to grow. Growth always means struggle in one form or another. I struggled when I was a ...read more
