     | 678 views

    Easter should be a happy day, but for those who first experienced the risen Lord it was anything but joyful. This speaks to how you might experience Jesus at first too.

    What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when I say the word "Easter"? Outside of a Christian group you’d probably say "The Easter Bunny," or "Easter eggs."

    I can still the scene from Titanic where the orchestra is brought out on deck to play music while the ship is sinking.

    based on 11 ratings
     | 3,670 views

    Most of the time we think of spiritual giants just itching to do God’s work. Moses was actually very reluctant to answer God’s call. This gives us ordinary folks hope. God takes us - whatever we have in our hand - and uses it for His glory.

    Do you remember the Sand People from the original Star Wars movie? They lived on Tatooine - I guess their proper name is: Tusken Raiders. Anyway - these nomads were covered all over with rags with little lenses or something to see and breath out of. They carried these big sticks and traveled on ...read more

  • Overcoming Our Reluctance Series

    based on 2 ratings
     | 11,977 views

    Gideon was an unlikely candidate to lead Israel against the Midianites, but God often uses the weak and inadequate. Our service to Him is not dependent upon our wisdom or ability, but it must rely on the Lord through faith.

    Overcoming our Reluctance Judges 6: 11-16 Living the Christian life isn’t always easy. In fact, we are often forced to deal with difficulties and struggles. At times we surrender to defeat and feel as if we lack the ability to overcome. I am sure we have all dealt with moments of insecurity, ...read more
