    The Holy Spirit is constantly working in our lives. We are always a bridge in someone’s life. Our obedience to God is a big thing. It is always worth it!

    Last week we learn about overcoming prejudice. • God has no favourites. Salvation is for all men. • Israelites were chosen as a forerunner. God’s purpose was to save them and through them, the whole world. • The Jews were not intended to be the END of God’s plan, but the MEANS. • Because ...read more

    Obedience always requires sacrifice.

    In a Psychology Today article called, “The Myth of Multitasking,” Dr. Nancy Napier shares a test delivered by the Potential Project, a group based out of Denmark that proves that multitasking, the idea that we can focus on two things at the same time, is a myth.

     | 2,048 views

    Being a disciple means being called to mission. This isn’t an optional extra.

    By Rev Bill Stewart Can I begin by asking you to cast your mind back? For some of us it will only be a short time for others it may be somewhat longer. Cast your mind back to the first time your Christian faith really came alive for you. When was it? Why was it? When I was in primary school my ...read more

  • Drifting Away From God

    based on 4 ratings
     | 8,575 views

    We drift away from God when we began to doubt God’s good intentions and believe that we need something more to be happy.

    [I’ve taken some pointers in this sermon from Chapter 5 ’Drifting Away from God’ in Joseph Stowell’s book RADICAL RELIANCE.] You see, God did not hide from us. Man was the first to hide from God. • Man did not seek God. It was God who first sought man out. DRIFTING AWAY Tom cannot swim ...read more

  • Trusting God In Difficult Times

    Contributed by Rodney Buchanan on Oct 2, 2006
    based on 29 ratings
     | 42,818 views

    The beliefs we must commit ourselves to when facing suffering are: 1. God is good, even when life is bad. 2. God can redeem the evil that comes into our lives. 3. We must do the right thing, even when it does not seem to pay off.

    Those of you who have seen the classic movie Fiddler on the Roof remember the scene where Tevye, the main character, is walking on a dusty road, pulling both a milk cart and a lame horse. He says: “Ah, dear God, was that necessary? Did you have to make him lame just before the Sabbath? That ...read more

  • Where Are You Leading God's People?

    Contributed by Daniel Habben on Nov 15, 2004
    based on 11 ratings
     | 3,388 views

    Where Are You Leading God’s People? 1) Into foolish boasting? 2) Into self-indulgent living? 3) Into danger of God’s judgment?

    I’m sure that everyone here has at one time or another played the game “follow the leader.” I remember it being a favourite for my classmates and me in grade one. We spent countless hours leading each other up, over, and around playground equipment during recess. While you might think that it’s ...read more

  • Dealing With Doubt

    Contributed by Dan Erickson on Nov 21, 2000
    based on 145 ratings
     | 4,042 views

    When it comes to Chris-tian truth, God doesn't want us to be skeptics, but I don't think He wants us to be gullible either. In fact, our faith can be strengthened when we ask tough questions and even when we struggle with doubts.

    Some people are natural skeptics. My Grandfather was one. When man first landed on the moon in July of 1969 and the TV pictures came back from the lunar surface, my Grandpa thought it was all being faked. He figured those pictures were coming from a desert somewhere in Arizona. Sometimes he was a ...read more
