     | 128 views

    Do you have the kind of faith that saves? An examination of the faith of the first eyewitnesses to Jesus' resurrection graphically illustrates what kind of faith saves, and what kind of faith does not.

     | 745 views

    Though not one of the traditional Christmas stories we refer to when we consider Christmas, the prologue of John's Gospel perhaps offers the most complete explanation found anywhere about what Christmas is really about--the God-man came to earth to rescue us from this present darkness.

    The Humility, Gentlness and Kindess of God was displayed in how he entered this world--as a gently, humble baby who would eventually deal with our sins with the same humility, gentleness and kindness in order to reconcile us to Himself. What an Awesome Savior and God!

     | 544 views

    God predicted the Messiah would come eons before He did, in the darkness that followed the Fall--giving hope to mankind even after everything had gone wrong. It was the "first light" that shown in the darkness, and the light still shines, and the darkness has yet to overcome it.

    The Divine Advent(ure) First Light Genesis 3:14—4:1 This morning, we kick off for the Christmas season, believe it or not, a Christmas series, since Jesus Christ is what the Christmas season is all about.

     | 1,867 views

    Mary serves as an example of how to handle life when life doesn't go as expected--a great example. We all experience this sort of thing, and we find out--life doens't go as expected all the time. How would God have us respond?

    The Divine Advent(ure) How to Handle the Unexpected Luke 1:26-56 Have you ever noticed how life never seems to going exactly, or sometimes, even close to your plans? One of my favorite quotes is this one, apparently from an unbeliever: “Life is what happens when you’re making other plans.” And ...read more

     | 1,210 views

    Since when has there ever been a cause/effect relationship between being gentle and inheriting the earth? It has always been the brutal, the powerful, the violent who have ruled the earth in this age. But Jesus promises there will be a grand reversal!
