    Several people this week have mentioned how much they enjoyed hearing the Old Testament read out loud. Let’s face it ­ some books don’t get much attention today. One of those is Ecclesiastes, which was written by Solomon. It’s really a journal of Solom

    The Bible teaches that God can be known. That’s astonishing, isn’t it? The God of the Universe has chosen to reveal Himself to us. He longs for us to know Him more fully, more accurately and more personally.

    Our Knowable God I want to begin this morning by giving you a couple pop quizzes. This first one is pretty easy. 1. How long did the Hundred Year War last? 116 years. 2. Which country makes Panama hats? Ecuador 3. What is a camel’s hair brush made of? Squirrel fur. 4. What ...read more

    pray that you and I would have a similar experience this morning as we fix our gaze on the penetrating purity of the holiness of God. May His brightness burn into our lives in such a way that it would never fade from our vision. May we find His holiness

    Our Holy God I can remember as a young boy really being bored in church. I thought it was dull and not very interesting. My mom would give us pep talks before we went to church in an effort to remind us to pay attention and not goof around. Invariably, to my shame, I often disregarded her ...read more

    I have three purposes this morning: 1. To declare a biblical basis for our God as the Creator. 2. To help you gain courage to do what is right. 3. To motivate you to be involved

    Our Creator God The people who started college this past fall… Have no meaningful recollection of the Reagan era They were 11 when the Soviet Union broke apart and do not remember the Cold War They are too young to remember the space shuttle blowing up Their lifetime has always included ...read more

    This morning we’re going to learn about God’s omnipresence. There are really three attributes of God that should always be kept together in your mind ­ they all begin with the four-letter prefix “omni”: Omniscience, Omnipotence, and Omnipresence. God

    Our Omnipresent God Since this is Super Bowl Sunday, I thought it would be a good idea to begin with some football terminology that has made its way into church. Draw Play ­ What many children do with the bulletin during the service. Backfield in Motion ­ Making a trip to the bathroom during ...read more

    This morning, we’re focusing on God’s omniscience ­ He is all-knowing. In classical theology the doctrine of God’s omniscience means that God knows all things, past, present and future, real and potential, and He knows them all at the same time. He not

    Our Omniscient God Many years ago, little Johnny Sylvester was kicked in the head by a horse and doctors were fearful that he might not make it. Johnny told his father, “I wish I could see Babe Ruth hit a homer before I die.” A telegram was sent off to the New York Yankees in St. Louis, where ...read more

    You and I are limited in space ­ but God is omnipresent. Our knowledge is limited ­ but God is omniscient. We are more aware of our weakness, than our power ­ and God is omnipotent, or all-powerful.

    Our Omnipotent God I heard recently about a 747 jetliner that was halfway across the Atlantic when the captain got on the loudspeaker and said, “Ladies and Gentlemen, we have lost one of our engines, but we can still reach London with the three we have left. Unfortunately, this will make us one ...read more

    Here’s a simple definition: “God’s faithfulness means that everything He says and does is certain.” He is 100% reliable, 100% of the time. He does not fail, forget, falter, change, or disappoint. He says what He means and means what He says ­ and there

    Our Faithful God In the country of Armenia, in 1988, Samuel and Danielle sent their young son, Armand, off to school. Samuel squatted before his son and looked him in the eye. “Have a good day at school, and remember, no matter what, I’ll always be there for you.” They hugged and the boy ran ...read more

    Justice is not an external system to which God tries to adhere. He didn’t have to go to law school or get a TV courtroom to learn how to apply the law. His justice comes out of his inner being and is based on His holiness, His truthfulness, and His righ

    Our Just God This past Monday I had the opportunity to play “Mr. Mom” while Beth attended a conference in Chicago. There is no doubt in my mind that Beth has a more difficult job than I do! My greatest challenge came late morning when I was trying to give our baby Megan a bottle. Since Beth ...read more

    The word “sovereign” is both a noun and verb. As a verb it means, “to rule,” and as a noun it means “king” or “absolute ruler.” To say that God is sovereign is to say that God is in charge of the entire universe all the time.

    Our Sovereign God I came across a couple of children’s prayers this week. Johnny had been misbehaving and was sent to his room. He emerged a couple minutes later and informed his mother that he had thought things over and had even said a little prayer. The mother was very happy and said, ...read more

    The moment we are born, we begin to age. We grow, develop, and then deteriorate ­ and our memory is one of the first things to go. Our only hope in life is this: God never changes. He is the one constant we can count on while everything around us ra

    Our Unchanging God Now that my 40th birthday is in my rear-view mirror, I can laugh about all the cards and balloons I received. 90% of the cards I got made some kind of crack about how old 40 is ­ but a few people were kind to me ­ very few. The staff gave me a little party on Tuesday ...read more

    I purposely decided to preach on the topic of God’s love at the end of this series because love is an essential attribute of God, the capstone of His personality. Having said that, I feel overwhelmed and challenged by the task of trying to put into words

    Our Loving God I know I got a lot of mileage last week out of turning 40 but I thought I’d begin this morning with a story about what happened when a young couple invited their aging pastor over for Sunday dinner. While the parents were in the kitchen preparing the meal, the minister asked their ...read more
