    I live as an exile in this world because God elected me, not because God rejected me

    It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had more

    When I follow Jesus He transforms my suffering in the flesh into triumph in the spirit

    ENGAGE/TENSION How many of you know who Vinko Bogataj is? That’s what I figured. That name isn’t real familiar for any of us. But for those of my generation who grew up watching “Wild World of Sports”, you may not know his name but you’re familiar with his infamous more

    We can triumph in our trials if we replace our worry with worship

    ENGAGE Are you a worrier? If so, you’re certainly not alone. A 2015 study in Britain found that 86% of adults considered themselves to be worriers. According to that survey the average adult spent one hour and 50 minutes a day worrying, which adds up to nearly 28 days a year. I more

    Contributed on Aug 8, 2016

    Suffering for what is right brings reward but suffering for what is wrong brings wrath

    ENGAGE Would you all agree with me that there are a number of aspects of the kingdom of God that are completely at odds with the culture in which we live? Because of that, whenever the kingdom of God is inserted into this world in any way, conflict and tension inevitably result. We certainly more

    Contributed on Aug 8, 2016

    Jesus lived and died for me so that I can die and live for Him

    ENGAGE/TENSION Did you know that there are a number of online calculators that will calculate your life expectancy? Just for the fun of it, I tried a few of them this week. Some of them, like the once used by the Social Security Agency are pretty simple, requiring you only to submit your more

  • 6. Making My Living Hope Real

    Contributed on Aug 8, 2016

    Living hope is a matter of looking ahead rather than looking around

    ENGAGE/TENSION In general, I tend to be a pretty optimistic person. But I’ve got to admit that it is getting harder and harder to be hopeful about life here on earth in the 21st century. Let’s face it, 2016 didn’t exactly get off to a great start: • This week, the more

  • 7. How To Be Holy In All My Conduct

    Contributed on Aug 8, 2016

    Being holy as God is holy means living as a stranger in a strange world

    ENGAGE/TENSION A California driver’s license examiner told about a teenager who had just driven an almost perfect test. “He made his only mistake,” said the examiner, “when he stopped to let me out of the car. After breathing a sigh of relief, the boy exclaimed, more

    Contributed on Aug 8, 2016

    In order to become who God made us to be in Christ we must long for His Word

    ENGAGE/TENSION As you’ve probably already noticed, we’re changing things up a bit this morning for some reasons that will become apparent in a bit. I’m pretty sure that some of you are really going to like what we’ll do and others of you are not going to be quite so more

  • 9. Serving Through Submission

    Contributed on Aug 8, 2016

    Jesus saved me through His submission so that I can serve Him through my submission

    ENGAGE/TENSION This morning I’m going to preach on a section of Scripture that I don’t particularly like. And my guess is that if most of you are completely honest, you don’t like it either. That’s because it flies in the face of our natural tendencies. Submission is more

  • 10. When Words Alone Aren't Enough

    Contributed on Aug 8, 2016

    For those who are resistant to God’s Word consideration beats conversation

    ENGAGE/TENSION When it comes to being a witness for Jesus, which is more important - what you do or what you say? It seems that when Christians are asked that question they tend to come down on one side or the other. Some say that the best way to be a witness for Jesus is to just love other more

  • 11. Only Christ Matters

    Contributed on Aug 8, 2016

    I honor Jesus as holy when I fear the displeasure of God more than I fear the disdain of man

    ENGAGE/TENSION Last week someone submitted an anonymous question/comment on the sermon that read: I’ve become a very angry believer, I look all around and see only Satan taking over this world. Just once do I want to see God do a mighty thing. It’s like he isn’t here more
