Do you ever dwell on things that *might* happen some day? It's common to let our own thoughts convince us that we're just not good enough. In this message we look at a story from the book of Numbers. We might just find that our God is too big to comprehend, and He's to powerful to limit. In those times of doubt, know that Jesus fights for us!
Theology Alert!! We have a tendency to overlook Leviticus and everything related to it. But, it's important to stop and slow down, especially at chapter 16. In this shortened message, Pastor Brad shares the importance of the Day of Atonement in the New Testament. In fact, the death of Jesus is only understood in light of the Day of Atonement.
In this message Pastor Brad takes us through a Psalm. Psalms are songs/prayers meant to be spoken back to the Lord. Psalm 32 was one of both Augustine and Luther's favorite Psalms, and it's quoted by Paul in the New Testament. How do we get blessed? We find ourselves forgiven by Jesus.
Have you ever been so enslaved by fear that you've felt powerless? The Hebrews in the dessert were one day marching with great pride, but the next quivering in fear. In this passage from Exodus 14, we see the Lord deliver His people from an impossible situation.
In this message, we see another Encounter with God. And this was one that changed the world. We take an overview look at the life of Moses and hit on three key aspects of an encounter with God.
What's in a name? In this message, Pastor Brad shares the origins of the term Israel and what it means for us today. It all started with Jacob, and now it's the family name of God!
In this first message of our series we look at what is known simply as The Fall. It's one of the most defining moments for humanity, and it looked really bleak at the time. But somehow, someway the love of God compelled Him to have a contingency plan long before it even happened. We look at the passage, but we also look at the hope that is to come from it.
After an incredible experience there always seems to be a crash. This happens with holidays and it can even happen in our relationships with Jesus. We can't live on the mountaintops, and perhaps those inbetween moments are the ones that define and grow our faith in depth. We look at Elijah's hangover and see that the Lord is just as presence in those lonely moments as He is in the power moments.
Christmas is one the grandest days of the year. With feasting, family and friends, music and movies, and great cheer also comes giving gifts. In this Christmas Eve message we consider the greatest gift ever given, as well as the intentions behind that gift!
