Wrestling With God

Sunday, April 29th, 2007

How do you react when you’re going through a difficult time? Do you think it’s because God is displeased with you, or has abandoned you?

This sermon looks at an incident from the life of Jacob as he went through a time of great struggle. And the struggle wasn’t because God was far away — just the opposite. God was very near, and the struggle led to great blessing.

Still Waters

Sunday, April 22nd, 2007

It’s a familiar story: Jesus and the disciples are in a boat in the middle of the sea, and they’re caught in a ferocious storm. The disciples freak out; Jesus takes a nap.

Wouldn’t you like to have that kind of peace? When all the world is raging and storming around you, to be able to rest, knowing that all is in God’s hands.

That sort of peace is foreign to most of us — but it shouldn’t be. Listen as we learn about Jesus’ secret to perfect peace.

Good Answers to Tough Questions

Sunday, April 15th, 2007

Do you ever have little doubts, like gnats in your mind, about how being g, l, b, or t really impacts your relationship with God? Even if you know all the “right” scriptural answers, the questions can still linger.

So, how do you respond when someone says, “Just because you’re born that way doesn’t mean it’s good. Some people say addicts are born that way, but that doesn’t make addiction good.”

Or

“The Bible says that in the last days false prophets will arise. How do you know your pastor isn’t a false prophet? How can you be so sure you’re right?”

There are good, spiritually sound answers to all of these questions. Listen for a message of great encouragement.

Dying to Live

Sunday, April 1st, 2007

What does it mean to follow Jesus? It means more than to just believe his words — it means to do what he did, to walk in his footsteps.

We’re used to thinking of the cross as something Jesus did for us. But Jesus sees it differently — he invites us to join him there. So what does that mean? When Jesus says, “Follow me to the cross, share that experience with me,” what does he mean?

Listen as we take a deep look into the meaning of discipleship.
