AN EXTRAORDINARY CALL TO WE ORDINARY CHRISTIANS

Romans 1:18-23, Romans 10

In our message this Sunday, we will look at both the call Jesus gives us to go to the world and the world He sends us to go to. Both “go’s” are important as we are called to be assertive and not just responsive. We are to actively seek opportunity, while…

what is he doing and where is he going?

  Sometimes I reminisce about where God brought me from and where He has brought me to.  I like what He’s done in and with my life thus far.  But sometimes I may reminisce too much about the wonderful things of the past and forget that God is still moving forward.  As long as I…

Our Little, his much

What do you do when company unexpectedly comes at supper time? Well, in this week’s message Jesus has a crowd show up to witness His healing and hear what He has to say. Evening comes and they’re all hungry and they’re out in the country. As they check to see what people have to share,…

Ordinary people – son of encouragement

Our new series is entitled: GOD USES ORDINARY PEOPLE. If He only used superstars, most of us would be left out in the cold. The amazing thing is that He uses people just like you and me when we’re willing to do as He commands. No matter how small our “all” is, God can do…

UNDERSTANDING SACRIFICE

The nature of sacrifice is inspiration. It is caused by inspiration in the heart of the person who desires to give himself or herself for something or someone that they value more than life itself. It can inspire others to take action or to form loyalties, as in Memorial Day and the memory of those…

STAND

Ephesians 6:11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
