Have you ever noticed that when different people exhibit the same characteristic, sometimes it's a good thing, and sometimes it's a bad thing? The Bible offers us one of these characteristics that's caused a lot of confusion in believers. Shrewdness. Satan had it, yet Jesus encouraged us to have it. And it seems easily corruptible. In this message, we look closer at this aspect of a wise person and consider Esther.
In this message we consider the MIGHT of our great God. We look at Psalm 46, the source of some of the great worship hymns/songs, and we see that while the world might be reeling, our God is a constant source of strength and steadiness.
We look at one of the most incredible passages of hope and resurrection in all of the Old Testament. The insight from Ezekiel's valley of dry bones is of a God who makes bold promises and always fulfills those promises without flinching. What is the move of God we're waiting on today?
In this message we are assured that our past mistakes do not define us or limit us in the eyes of Christ. No matter how holy, or unholy, our personal history is, we all have a need for the forgiveness of Jesus.
Have you ever wondered about texts in the Old Testament that seem to be all about Jesus? They can feel a bit tricky to understand: are they for the time of Jesus's earthly ministry or are they for the End Times? In this message we focus in on one of those prophecies, and we consider it as a trial case for reading Old Testament prophecies that point to Jesus.
This Father's Day message is an encouragement for fathers as they lead and nurture their children of all ages. We look at the way God the Father called Jeremiah and glean from that example three critical purposes a father has in his own home.
In this message we take a look at the Biblical precedent for tithing. What's the Law say about it? And what does it say about one's heart? For many years God's people have obeyed the Lord with their wealth and seen incredible prosperity come from it.
Racism in America feels so spiked recently. But racism's origin dates back long before our nation was created. In this message, we look at what we can do specifically to end racism and see unity and love win the day. The church is truly the hope of this world!
On Pentecost Sunday, SPW 'reopened' its doors to restart our public worship gatherings after the coronavirus shutdowns. Pentecost is the day the Christian church was founded and the day that the followers of Jesus received the Holy Spirit. In this message, Pastor Brad shares several ignition sparks that Pentecost provides for us today.
Humanity is created with a longing to understand the heart and mind of God. But we quickly find ourselves hung up on mysteries and 'unsolvable' puzzles that can create frustration, doubt and even at times unbelief. In this message we look at the prophet Habakkuk who asks God directly about these issues, and we see the Lord's response. We can be assured that the Lord is for us and has a greater purpose to all His actions.
