    Abraham fully obeyed God, even when God's command was difficult to follow.

    Me and more than 11.4 million other people, on average, watched the History Channel TV production entitled “The Bible”. And, by the way, that is a lot of viewers – it was #1 in the ratings. It was a series of 10, 1 hour episodes which aired leading up to Easter, and the DVD more

    Moses raised many concerns about God's call in his life and God responded to each one of them.

    I’ve titled today’s sermon, “How to lose an argument with God”. The simple answer is: get into one. I’ve had a few arguments with God, not too many because I like to think I’m a quick learner and I learned pretty early on that God’s way is, honestly, more

  • 3. God Getting Our Attention

    God speaks gently to us when we are in a daily relationship with Him, but sometimes He needs to us a spiritual 2 x 4 to get our attention.

    Contributed on Jun 11, 2013

    Selflessness is the key characteristic in Jesus' command to take up our crosses and follow him. The stories of Jochebed, Hannah, and Mary (Jesus' mother) illustrate selflessness.

    This is the story of Pentecost along with stories of revival from more recent church eras.

    Last Sunday as we were preparing for worship, just before the service, our guest worship leaders were playing a prelude. The music finished, and as Pastor Garret came forward to begin the welcome and announcements I heard a sweet little voice right behind me loudly proclaim, “again! more

  • 7. The Long View - Perspective

    Contributed on Jun 11, 2013

    Sometimes it is difficult to see what God is doing because we are too close to the situation; it is helpful to remember and place our hope in God's long-view perspective.

    When I was a kid, I used to get a magazine in the mail every month, I think it was Canadian Geographic for kids or something similar, and one of my favorite parts was on the second to last page. It was about 9 pictures, super close up, and the game was to see how many of those objects you could more
