  • The Church Series

    Contributed by Sean Harder on Aug 26, 2014
     | 1,186 views

    Christ, as head of the church, gave us a model that will lead to unity and love. Are we listening?

    Today we begin a short two week series covering what I think is one of the most relevant sections of the New Testament for us today. It gives a very concise, clear picture of how the church and the family are to operate according to God’s design. So please join me as we read Ephesians chapter ...read more

  • What Is A Disciple?

    Contributed by Sean Harder on Aug 5, 2014
     | 991 views

    There are lots of experts on the topic of discipleship, so why is there so much confusion? What does the Bible say about disciples?

    What is a disciple of Christ? There are many books on the subject these days, and frankly a lot of technical confusion. That wasn’t the case in the first century. They were very clear about it and had Jesus’ words fresh in their minds. We need not be confused either, and we don’t ...read more

  • The Wisdom Of God

    Contributed by Sean Harder on Jun 17, 2014
     | 1,252 views

    God's wisdom is higher than human wisdom and His weakness is greater than our strength. Let's submit to the wisdom of God.

    A couple months ago a snake handling pastor in Kentucky died from a rattlesnake bite after refusing treatment when he went home after the service. This has happened more than a few times and continues to be quite a common practice in some churches in that area. There’s even a reality show ...read more

  • Like Father Like Son

    Contributed by Sean Harder on Jun 17, 2014
     | 4,268 views

    Let's honor our Father in heaven by being like Him

    That’s a common saying isn’t it? A lot of the time it’s true to some extent, many of us have traits of our parents whether we want them or not, but we’re rarely exactly them. In the case of Jesus, it’s true that the Son is exactly like the Father. Colossians 1:15, ...read more

  • "I Am Victorious" Series

    Contributed by Sean Harder on Apr 16, 2014
     | 3,460 views

    What do you think would happen if you were an athlete and you knew that you had already won the game before you even started? How do you think that would affect your performance? Would you go through the motions? Would you try even harder?

    “I Am Victorious” (Eph 6:10-20) What do you think would happen if you were an athlete and you knew that you had already won the game before you even started? How do you think that would affect your performance? Would you go through the motions? Would you try even ...read more

  • "I Am Rewarded" Series

    Contributed by Sean Harder on Apr 10, 2014
     | 1,436 views

    As living tributes to Jesus our lives should always point to Him. All the credit goes to Him. And all the rewards of our inheritance with Christ can be ours. The ultimate reward of course being in the presence of God for eternity, and perhaps hearing, “Well done good and faithful servant.

    “I Am Rewarded” (Eph 6:1-9) Here’s how our passage begins today, “Children obey your parents, honor your mother and father, this is the first commandment with a promise that it might go well with you and that you may live long in the land”. There’s one ...read more

  • "I Am A Saint In Christ" Series

    Contributed by Sean Harder on Mar 12, 2014
     | 2,727 views

    Some say that you could do all your biblical counselling from Ephesians alone. This is said because Paul, in Ephesians, places so much emphasis on our identity being in Christ alone. As Christians, we live from our identity, not for it.

    “I Am a Saint in Christ” (Eph 1:1-2, Phil 1:19-29) Some say that you could do all your biblical counselling from Ephesians alone. This is said because Paul, in Ephesians, places so much emphasis on our identity being in Christ alone. As Christians, we live from our identity, not for ...read more

  • "I Am New" Series

    Contributed by Sean Harder on Mar 12, 2014
     | 1,415 views

    Why not use this Lenten season to work on your relationship with Christ, to invest as much in this most important relationship, as you do in other relationships in your life, so that you can feel like the new you is rising with Him at Easter.

    “I Am New” (Ephesians 4:17-24) How many of you have a hard time throwing old things, especially clothes, away? Maybe you hold on to them thinking some day I’ll lose some weight and be able to fit into that again. Or maybe its gone out of style but you know that like most ...read more

  • "I Am Gifted" Series

    Contributed by Sean Harder on Mar 5, 2014
     | 1,505 views

    What is Christ’s gift? Well it’s the spoils of his victory over sin and death. We know that he has all authority in heaven and on earth, he has inherited all of creation. So the measure of his gift is unlimited.

    “I Am Gifted” (Eph 4:1-16) One of my best friends when I was growing up played hockey with me. We did everything together. Played army at construction sites, floor hockey in his huge basement, tobogganed on the hill behind his house, rode dirtbikes, went to the same school. He ...read more

  • "I Am Heard" Series

     | 1,753 views

    What goes through your mind when you think of prayer?

    “I Am Heard” (Eph 3:14-21) What goes through your mind when you think of prayer? If I were to say at the beginning of the service that we are not going to have any music or sermon or anything else this morning, we are just going to pray together for an hour, what would you’re ...read more

  • "I Am Afflicted" Series

    Contributed by Sean Harder on Feb 19, 2014
     | 1,363 views

    One of my questions for us today is whether or not we see our Christianity as an affliction, and can we relate to the identity of being afflicted because of the mystery of Christ that we have been exposed to?

    “I Am Afflicted” (Eph 3:1-13) Sometimes we can read too much into passages of the bible to make them personal, that they relate to us specifically when they’re not meant to. As we read about Paul today and his afflictions, you might say, “well that was for Paul, how do ...read more

  • "I Am Reconciled" Series

    Contributed by Sean Harder on Feb 11, 2014
     | 1,337 views

    The reconciliation we see today due to Christ's death has both a horizontal and vertical aspect to it. Vertically God has reconciled all mankind to himself, and horizontally he has reconciled all mankind to each other through the blood of Christ.

    “I Am Reconciled” (Eph 2:11-22) Here’s the attitude of the first century Jewish religious man: “Thank you God for not making me a Gentile, and thank you God for not making me a female”. The pious Jew was ever aware of the privilege they had inherited, and frankly ...read more

  • "I Am Appreciated" Series

    Contributed by Sean Harder on Feb 4, 2014
     | 2,479 views

    Living in our identity as appreciated saints.

    “I Am Appreciated” (Ephesians 1:15-23) In a series called “I Am” when we’re talking about ourselves, I realize there’s a danger of our egos getting involved, especially when the title is “I Am Appreciated”. But remember Paul is talking to people ...read more

  • "I Am Saved" Series

    Contributed by Sean Harder on Feb 4, 2014
     | 1,388 views

    Come and claim the identity of saved in Christ, but we can’t trifle with a very serious, loving, and severe God. Saved children of God are known by their fruit.

    “I Am Saved” (Eph 2:1-10) True or false, is this is a verse from the bible, “God helps those who help themselves”. False, in fact the bible says the exact opposite, God helps the helpless. And according to our passage in Ephesians today we are all helpless and hopeless ...read more

  • "I Am Blessed" Series

    Contributed by Sean Harder on Jan 22, 2014
     | 9,317 views

    The blessings we have in Christ help make up our spiritual identity.

    “I Am Blessed” (Eph 1:3-14) We can read our passage today and it reads like any good section of the New Testament, very nice introduction to the letter he writes to the Ephesian church. But what you can’t get from just reading the English written word here is how absolutely ...read more
