The Most Appalling Sin
This morning as we return to the book of 1 Kings we’ll find that Elijah is no longer the main character in focus; the text begins to focus on King Ahab for a few chapters and we’ll get a front row seat to view God’s dealings with the evil king.  Surprisingly, the first thing we’ll see is the grace and mercy of God showered upon Ahab and Israel as God rescues them from the attacks of the king of Syria.  How will Ahab respond to the blessing of God in his life? Listen here to see…

    Coming Out of the Cave
    Last week we saw Elijah on the mountain top with the prophets of Baal; what an incredible victory he experienced there as the Lord confirmed His word and His prophet.  Yet this week we find Elijah in a much different place- a place of great discouragement.  The valley of discouragement is a place many of us are familiar with. Discouragement is part of the human experience.  In our time in the word today we will explore what kinds of things contributed to Elijah’s discouragement, how he attempted to help himself, and we’ll ultimately see what God did for him and the keys He gave us to overcome discouragement in our lives.

    Dancing Between Two Altars
    In today’s passage of 1 Kings we see Elijah calling the people to choose whom they will serve. To prove to them that the Lord is God, Elijah challenges the prophets of Baal to a contest, “Let the true God show himself by fire”.  As we examine the altar of God and the altar of Baal and their characteristics we must ask ourselves- Which altar am I serving? Am I following the true and living God or am I following something less?  Choose this day whom you will serve.

    Integrity in Uncertainty

    A wise man has said that crisis doesn’t make us, it reveals what we’re made of.  In the first 2 chapters of 1 Kings there is crisis and several key players in Israel reveal what they are made of and tech us some valuable lessons in the process.  What are you made of? What will you do with the things that crisis reveals in you? When you face crisis, what kinds of questions do you ask?Answer these questions and more as you listen here.

    The Servant is Worshipped
    In the beginning of Mark chapter 14 we see the story of Mary (the sister of Lazarus) coming and anointing Jesus with expensive perfume. Mary’s actions here are clearly a form of worship and we can see that the Lord was pleased.  What can we learn from Mary about worship that pleases the Lord? What are the characteristics, the consequences, and the effects of pleasing worship?  Listen here to find out.

    The Servant’s Presence
     
    Today in Mark 11 we’re going to see Jesus arrive in Jerusalem.  As He makes His way to the temple we find that His presence with them does not bring the expected blessing the Messiah was prophesied to bring, but rather Jesus’ presence in the temple brings judgement and wrath.  Jesus found many problems in the temple, might He find any similar troubles in the church today? Listen here to learn more.

    Making Godly Decisions
    As we celebrate and honor our High School Graduates today it seems appropriate for us to pause and speak to a skill they will need to develop as they launch out into the adult world now- the skill of Making Godly Decisions.  But it’s not just them- all of us need to have this skill and all of us need to continue to grow in it.  So how do we make godly decisions? How do we hear the voice of the Spirit in the midst of our chaotic world? How do we know His will.  Listen here for help.

    The Paradoxical Kingdom
    Throughout the book of Mark we’ve seen Jesus use a number of very useful
    teaching tools; we’ve seen Him use signs and symbols, proverbs and parables, and today we shall see Him employ one more: the paradox.  A paradox takes 2 normal contradictory ideas or concepts and links them together in a single new thought.  Jesus will employ 4 paradox in this passage to teach us necessary Kingdom truth.

    The Servant Tears Down Walls
    In mark 7 & 8 we see several walls that had been built by religious men- walls that isolated and limited, walls that excluded, and walls that degraded… And Jesus came to tears those walls down.  Listen here to find out what walls Jesus tore down and what we must do to keep from building them up again.

    He Still Raises the Dead
    On Easter Sunday 2017 our Pastor used his testimony to talk about the New Life that Jesus offers to us all- "for we were all dead in our trespasses and sins"- but Jesus still raises the dead today!
