Flaming Out or Flaming On
Have you ever run into an old friend and been disappointed to learn they aren't walking with the Lord as they once did? Have you ever seen someone in church who used to be on fire for the Lord suddenly fall away and slip back into the sin adn darkness of the past? You ever wonder why some people's faith flames on for the Lord throughout a life time and others seem to flash in the pan and flame out?  Jesus suggests to us in our passage this morning that there is a good reason why some lives only change for a moment while others are transformed forever... it has to do with Asking, Seeking, and Knocking.

    Beware of Monkey Traps
    The words of Jesus before us today are much needed in the church today, for many are more passionate in their pursuit and desire for things than for their Savior.  Jesus reminds us today what purpose wealth and things should really serve, and He also warns us about the dangers of treasuring the treasures of this world over the treasures of Heaven.  Don't get trapped!

    The Lord’s Prayer (Part 1)
    Today we examine the Lord’s Prayer as Jesus delivered in on the Sermon on the Mount.  What are we to do with this prayer? Did Jesus give us these words to be repeated in precise order and word for word- or is there another way to practice what we’re taught here? How ought the Lord’s teaching on prayer impact our prayer today? Listen here to learn more.

    The Fickle Heart of Man
    As we open in our text this morning we remember the Immutable character of our God.  He is unchanging and faithful; He’s a rock in this ever changing world; and anchor for every storm tossed soul.  But WE are not unchanging people, are we? As humans we tend to be fickle and capricious; we are people of whim, by nature.  But Jesus is calling us in our text today to something more.  As we are transformed to the image of Christ we do not become immutable as God is, BUT we are called to reflect His unchanging nature by living lives of Constancy and Integrity.  Listen here to learn more.

    Anger Danger
    In our message today we’ll explore Jesus’ words concerning murder and what we’ll find is that this is a deeper issue than we thought.  The words of the Savior actually go much deeper than the action of killing your neighbor and they actually speak to the attitudes in our hearts that can lead up to murder, and Jesus says they are just as bad.  What is the source of our Anger? How do we deal with it? And what do we do when our Anger has hurt someone? These questions and more will be answered here.

    The Gift of Grace
    This is our second Message in our Advent Sermon Series- “The Gifts of Christmas.”  We’ll learn today that grace is not only getting what we don’t deserve, but it also means that we don’t get what we DO deserve.  But the gift of grace is better than us- God’s gift of grace poured into our lives isn’t supposed to stop with us- we’re called to SHARE the gift of grace.  Listen hear to learn more.

    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.
