  • Can God Be Trusted?

    Contributed by Sean Harder on Aug 5, 2011
    based on 4 ratings
     | 3,010 views

    God allows us to do things for which he holds himself responsible. God trusts us, can you believe that? And he lets us blame him for things that we are responsible for. I wonder if we can be trusted by him, can he be trusted by us? And will we show that t

    Let me start today with some words from Christopher Columbus who we attribute with finding North America, but not many of us know that apparently he was quite a theologian too. He said, “It was the Lord who put into my mind the fact that it would be possible to sail from here (Spain) to the ...read more

    Now for the rest of chapter 7 we have what I think is the most important summary in the entire Bible, showing us exactly what the future holds for us and the basic choices we have to make.

    Jesus has just spent probably several hours on this hot hillside teaching his disciples what a Christian is, what effect they are to have on the world, what his role was in coming to earth, and then giving many illustrations of Christian attitudes and behaviours that define us as Children of God ...read more

    Can you build a real house without blueprints? Sure you can throw up a square storage shed maybe without them, but do you not need to have some kind of visual plan of the dimensions, how many rooms, where the rooms go, and so on in order to start building

    Can you build a real house without blueprints?

  • The Foundation Series

     | 2,670 views

    I am proposing that the foundation of your spiritual house and the church itself consists of prayer and worship, our part of the relationship with Jesus. Obviously without the blueprints, the Bible, you can’t even get started. That is the receptive mode,

    We have over the past few weeks prepared the property and looked at the blueprints for building this spiritual house, and now its time to get started on the most important part of any building, the foundation. No building can stand without a good foundation. I am proposing that the foundation of ...read more

    We who are strong, meaning here strong spiritually and doctrinally are obligated to bear the weaknesses of those who are without strength. And not to please ourselves.

    When I was coming up with my preaching schedule for these few weeks of Summer I simply asked God to lead me to a few different passages, and they actually came from the little devotional day planners that many of you have. The first is our passage today from Romans 15 and I’m calling it ...read more

    Is Jesus a legalist? Are we really supposed to follow what he says?

    I knew a woman who stopped for a few drinks every night after work to let traffic die down, then drove home, about a 45 minute drive in lower mainland traffic. She would say, “I’m fine, I’ve never had an accident and there are never any roadblocks on my route home. It’s not ...read more

    Billions of people are asking, why would a loving God allow such a thing? God didn’t create this, He created perfection. We humans have caused this through our wanting our own way, but just like Adam and Eve, we don’t want to take responsibility for it.

    Meekness is not laziness or lack of desire or passion, weakness, niceness, or being easy going. Restrained might be another good word for it. Humility or biblical meekness has incredible power because it allows God to work. Pride gets in the way and it be

    Have you ever heard of the "Dependent Order of Really Meek and Timid Souls"? When you make an acrostic of the first letters of its name, you have the word "Doormats." The Doormats have an official insignia—a yellow caution light. Their official motto is: "The meek shall inherit the earth, if ...read more

    Have you ever really been hungry, not its noon I better have some lunch hungry. Not “I haven’t eaten all day hungry, but if I don’t eat soon I will die hungry”? Have you ever gone two days without a drop of water to the point that you start hallucinating and are close to ...read more

    As Paul was well aware, the Christian life is an unrelenting conflict between our sinful nature and this spirit or heart that God puts in us at our conversion. So the questions are not which church should I attend, am I doing the right religious things? B

    If you have read the Gospels you have heard Jesus rebuke the Pharisees, the upstanding religious leaders and lawmakers in Ancient Israel. Well, we don’t know the half of it. They weren’t just talking about the 10 Commandments when they spoke of the laws. Here are some of the over 600 man made rules ...read more
