  • Sometimes, I Guess There Just Aren't Enough Rocks

    Contributed by Michael Stark on May 6, 2021

    In life, we may tear down relationships or we may build relationships. We use similar aspects to both destroy and build. Christians should be known as builders.

    “Early in the morning Jacob took the stone that he had put under his head and set it up for a pillar and poured oil on the top of it. He called the name of that place Bethel, but the name of the city was Luz at the first.” [1] In the movie Forrest Gump, one scene pictures Forrest and Jenny more

  • The Stairway To Heaven

    Contributed by Justin Steckbauer on May 3, 2021

    Have you ever noticed that? The Bible is not simple, and it's not man made. It's all interconnected. The first verse of the Old Testament says "in the beginning God created" it all. Of course we know from Genesis chapters 2 and 3 that things went wrong.

    In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1. In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. John 1:1. Have you ever noticed that? The Bible is not simple, and it's not man made. It's all interconnected. The first verse of the Old more

  • Pondering God’s Goodness

    Contributed by Richard Tow on May 3, 2021

    Quality worship experience is dependent upon biblical principles. This message examines some of those principles as stated in Psalm 65.

    We take as our text today, Psalm 65. In the Bible God has given us a healthy spiritual balance of truth. Some portions of Scripture warn and correct. In Psalm 19:7-11 David celebrated this. He wrote, “The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul; The testimony of the Lord is sure, making more

  • The Mess? The Ladder Up: Opportunity.

    Contributed by Wade Martin Hughes, Sr on Mar 31, 2021

    Often life becomes a big mess. God has a ladder that becomes an opportunity to climb above the obstacles of daily living. We can change.

    THE MESS: THE LADDER UP: OPPORTUNITY. By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. WE TEND TO SEE OBSTACLES AS A MESS? THE PLAN OF GOD CAN SEE THIS more

  • Isaac--Fool Me Once, Shame On Me!

    Contributed by Jonathan Spurlock on Feb 16, 2021

    Isaac asked his son Esau to prepare a special dinner. Several things happened, though, that changed the family dynamic forever.

    Introduction: At the time of this incident, Isaac was considered an old man, and he was afraid he was going to die soon. He asked Esau, his oldest son, to prepare him some food from game Esau would hunt in the fields. The rest of this story is a classic of deceit, in that a family was torn apart more

  • Isaac, Son Of Abraham

    Contributed by Jonathan Spurlock on Feb 8, 2021

    Isaac seems to have lived in the shadows of his father (Abraham) and his sons (Esau and Jacob). He is mentioned less than either of these, but he stayed faithful to the God of his father, Abraham. So can we!

    Introduction: Isaac does not have as much coverage in the Bible as his father, Abraham, or his sons, Esau and Jacob. He still lived for the True and the Living God, serving Him much as Abraham had done and Jacob would do later on. Isaac outlived both father and son, finally dying at the age of 180. more

    based on 1 rating

    Christmas messages usually come with a lot of expectations. There are certain scriptures people expect to hear, certain narratives, mixed with a little pop culture references to help keep things relative.

    (10) And Jacob went out from Beersheba, and went toward Haran. (11) And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep.

    based on 1 rating

    Jacob was Isaac's son and Abraham's grandson. He stopped at Bethel, for the night, but some interesting things happened while he was there.

    Bethel: where Jacob met the Lord Preface: When you think of Jacob, what comes to mind? Clearly, he was one of the most colorful people in the Bible!
