    Wisdom comes from God, and is a very real and practical sense of what to do, how to do it, and why it must be done...but wisdom is no guarantee that we’ll act wisely.

    Wisdom II Chronicles 1:1-11, Pastor Bob Leroe, Cliftondale Congregational Church, Saugus, Massachusetts “Ask for whatever you want Me to give you” (vs 7). If God handed you a “blank check”--if you could ask Him for anything and receive it, what would your pray for? I saw a “prayer” on a ...read more

    Solomon’s mistakes were that he started out well, but did not end well, he was a minimalist and he allowed his strength to become his weakness.

    Have you see the bumper sticker that says, “I took an IQ test and the results were negative”? Sometimes very intelligent people can get very negative results on their IQ tests. For instance, people are paid a lot of money to write the things that appear on the packages and products we buy. But a ...read more

  • The Awakening Series

    Just as Saul was called out of fear to take his place of leadership, so we too are being called by God to awake from slumber and take our place in these days crying out for leadership.

Just as he awoke and took his place, we too must awake to God’s hand on our lives. These difficult days in our ...read more

     | 3,757 views

    King Saul’s depression, caused by disobedience to God, was relieved as he came to terms with himself and asked David to play his harp - a parable of what Jesus can do for us.

    based on 9 ratings
     | 4,956 views

    In the short term Saul’s reign was a failure. But in the longer term God had a king in mind for Israel, who, through his death and resurrection, would bring the salvation, the leadership, the rule that the nation needed and who, in fact, would extend that

    Well, today we come to the end of the history of Saul, Israel’s first king. The question that faces us as we think about the life of Saul, is just how much of a failure was it? And what’s more, did God make a mistake in making him king? In fact, should God have refused the Israelites request for a ...read more
