Redeemed, Renewed, and Transformed

Brothers and Sisters in Christ, let me remind you and me that “there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death” (Romans 8:1). Jesus Christ died on the cross …

Set Apart for God

Today’s message is a little bit harder to swallow than most, but none-the-less it is God’s Word. In 2 Corinthians 6 verses 14-18 Paul is warning the believers in Corinth about partnering with unbelievers. First off it is important to realize that there were a lot of false teachers who were infiltrating the church and …

Don’t be a Stumbling Block

Yesterday we saw that God desires our love for Him and for others above knowledge.  Today we will look deeper into what Paul was teaching.  It is true that God desires for us to love Him and to love others, but that does not mean that He doesn’t desire for us to gain knowledge and …

Knowledge or Love? Which is Better?

1 Corinthians 8:1-3 Now regarding your question about food that has been offered to idols. Yes, we know that "we all have knowledge" about this issue.

Lukewarm Christianity is Repulsive

Revelation 3:15-17 I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth. For you say, I am rich, I have prospered, and I need nothing, not realizing that you are wretched, pitiable, …

Selfish, Self-Centered, and Entitled

I am profoundly unaware of how selfish and even self-entitled I really am. As I lift up my prayers and thanks to God I cannot help but to notice how much my prayers revolve around me and my family. Now on one hand we have been extremely blessed and I am truly thankful for the …

A Life of Worship

I go to church on Sunday and I raise my hands to the music as it moves me, sometimes I sway a little bit, and once in a while I may even shed a tear. But…it doesn’t always happen. Sometimes it seems that no matter how hard I try I cannot get into it and …
