    Naomi suffered three bereavements and yet proved God’s providential care.

    There’s a striking phrase in our reading from the book of Ruth - "The Lord came to the aid of his people" (1:6). The Authorized Version puts it: "The Lord has visited his people."

  • The Ten Lepers Series

    based on 73 ratings
     | 11,454 views

    Everything I have can be traced back to an opportunity or an event that I never could have orchestrated or created; every good thing I have going on in my life finds its source in a gift of God’s grace

    Beginning a few Wednesday nights ago and for the next several weeks, we’re talking about the issue of Grace. And as I said last time, the way we define grace is that “Grace is getting a gift you don’t deserve.” Now mercy is when we don’t get a punishment we do deserve; but grace is getting a gift ...read more

  • Making A Stand For God

    Contributed by Wayde Wilson on Jan 12, 2002
    based on 74 ratings
     | 5,084 views

    We can sense in the strength of this one famous statement that Joshua was a man who knew who he was, who knew what he believed, and who was willing to live in such a way as to back up his words with his actions.

    INTRO: Why do we admire Joshua? Why has this moment in time been immortalized, serving as an inspiration to so many people down through the years? Why does it still touch some place deep inside our hearts when we hear those famous words, "As for me & my house…?" The reason this phrase is so well ...read more

  • I Know History; I Do Not Know Myself Series

    Contributed by Joseph Smith on Mar 4, 2002
    based on 31 ratings
     | 3,295 views

    It is one thing to know history and theology; it is another entirely to understand our own hearts. Job’s pilgrimage into self-understanding led to self-hatred, but in Christ that can be redeemed.

    I’ll ask you to repeat with me this wonderful, ringing affirmation from the New Testament: But I am not ashamed, for I know the one in whom I have put my trust, and I am sure that he is able to guard until that day what I have entrusted to him. I know. I know the one in whom I have put my ...read more

    Why is it that we don’t share our faith in Christ more? Maybe Jonah can shed some light on the subject. Learn 5 attitudes that keep us from reaching others from his life.

    This Ain’t No Fish Story! I want to tell you a story this morning about a fish. But it’s anything but a “fish story”. Most of us can probably remember the story of “Jonah & the Whale” from our Sunday School days, but maybe now that we’re all grown up, we kind of put it in the same category ...read more

    When we truly believe what God has said, we will watch him work in his time, for his glory and we will be amazed!

    Abraham was a man that had a close walk with his God. Throughout the text, God speaks to Abraham and gives him a promise that would pass on through generations.
