Last Sunday we went over a passage from Romans 13 that described the overarching theme of love in how we are to live in the world: towards those inside and outside the Church.  As Christians, we are to do all things in love, as the “fulfillment of the law”(v10), even i...

As our church is going through Paul’s Epistles together (currently in Galatians), we read about much of Paul’s hardships in getting the Gospel into new territories.  We read that this life-and-death message is so important that it is worth risking all for the sake of o...

It’s getting so hard to see through the fog!   Our mailboxes and cell phone advertisements inundate us with “deals”.   We fill up our December calendars with tree hunting, Santa sightings, and “Christmas” shopping for people who don’t need a single material thing!  I’m...

Psalm 91:1-2 “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.    I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust."

You may have heard the recent Gallup report stating that “Americans are...

13  When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, "Who do people say the Son of Man is?" 14  They replied, "Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets." 15  "But what about you?" he aske...
