If you are a Christ follower, you are a leader. God has given us the authority of heaven, but why is it that we often feel unequipped, forgotten, or afraid? Have we truly grasped the purpose and plans God has for us and the faith God has in us?
2 Samuel 5:17-25 tells about two of David’s conflicts with the Philistines. Through prayer and obedience, David saw two victories over the Philistines that secured his kingship. In this passage, David displays a pattern for overcoming the enemy that each and every one of us can put into practice in our own lives.
In James 5:13-18, James give instructions to the church and highlights for us the power of prayer. And then he draws our attention to one of the miracles that Elijah performed and he says, you and I are just like Elijah. So join me as we look at the power of prayer, and what it means to be humans just like Elijah.
Almost everyone is familiar with the story of the nativity. Christmas hymns play in the mall, manger scenes decorate lawns, and we hear the same Bible stories. Often our familiarity causes us to miss the history-altering message of Christmas. Join Pastor Tim as we look at the characters of Christmas, their actions, and the message they still speak to us today.
Join Pastor Tim as he looks at Luke 10. Jesus says that the harvest is ready, but do we really believe him? Pastor Tim helps us identify 3 saying that should cue us that now is the time to share the hope of Jesus and invite them to church.
Join Pastor Tim as he looks at Acts 2. If you’ve been a Christian for a long time, you’ve gone to church forever, we can sometimes get sidetracked with evaluating our church. I’ve been a part of many conversations before, during, and after church about how good church is. And what mean by that is often, how good the sermon, the music, the decorations, the program was. And we can often miss out on the very central point of Church, Jesus. Join me as we look at Acts 2 and the very formation of the church and the three things that the early believers devoted themselves to.
So many of us live lives that are overstretched, extra busy, and overwhelming. In the midst of this chaos, God and church can seem like one more thing on top of a huge pile that is already crushing us. Join Pastor Tim as he looks at how to carve out some margin in our lives so that God can move in our lives.
