Romans 1:1-7 When Paul was called he was interrupted and reassigned as a messenger of the Gospel.  He was given a job, a job he didn’t apply for or interview for.  He was selected and chosen in the mysterious providence of God’s will and ultimate plan. God’s word is relevant and meaningful first because it […]

Romans 1:1-7 Reading the book of Romans touched the heart of St. Augustine and he wrote his “Confessions” to encourage others to follow Christ.  Martin Luther had obsessed on earning God’s favor and satisfying His holiness through continual repentance but in reading the book of Romans he realized that he wasn’t justified by his works […]

Colossians 3:23-24 As you toil in the midst of difficult circumstances is your focus on your “earthly masters” or is it on God?  Are you finding joy in the task? If we are first aware of God’s hand and then if we embrace whole-heartedly what God is doing in this world through us then this […]

1 Corinthians 11:23-26 We celebrate Communion to remember what Jesus did for us.  The ability that God gives us to remember is an incredible thing but it is also a distinct responsibility.  “Do this in remembrance of me” we were told (1 Corinthians 11:24).  Jesus also said “I am the bread of life, whoever comes […]

2 Corinthians 1:3-5 We need each other.  We are not alone and as we face life’s joys and trials we are meant to do it together.  God is a God of compassion, He comforts us, and in turn we comfort each other.  God works through who we are, what we’ve been through and the heart […]

Exodus 34:5-8 Our joy is connected to our perception of “The Good” but what is God’s definition of good? One of the ways in which we can learn about God’s idea of good is through general revelation.  God created the world and at each stage declared what had been created “good” (Genesis 1-2).  Through His […]

John 14:1-7 Are you happy?  If you aren’t feeling joyful in the hope that is before you then something isn’t right, God wants you to be full of joy, gladness and jubilation!  Joy is not usually silent, it is expressed externally, it is based on a focal point.  How do you find joy? If you […]

Matthew 16:13-18 By following Christ in baptism we are placing our faith and hope in Him.  It is both an inward commitment to follow Christ as well as a public declaration of our dedication to Him.  We were made to be decisive and to be committed, to identify ourselves with Christ.  Baptism pictures our death […]

John 21:15-23 Joy is one of the most important and foundational themes of scripture.  God wants our joy to be complete (John 15:11) and we want to feel this joy but circumstances and our pain can erode our ‘sense of joy’ and throw us for a loop.  God’s joy is more than a feeling however, […]

This Sunday we had the pleasure of welcoming the Vegas family as they prepare for their departure August 2nd for Cusco, Peru with World Gospel Mission (WGM).  This has been a long time coming and God has rewarded their dedication and perseverance in this endeavor.  Please join us in praying for protection, […]

We were blessed this Sunday to have Attila and Tamara Szogedi come share with us about their ministry in South Pest County in Budapest Hungary and what the Lord is doing in the hearts of the people they minister to.  Please especially remember and pray for Steve and Val.  Also please pray for the refuges […]

John 8:34-36 God made us to be free, to have a free will, to have freedom to chose even whether to follow Him.  However so many of us continue to live in bondage in spite of His desire and sacrifice for our freedom.  This bondage may be external when we live in bondage to our […]

Matthew 9:35-38 On a relay team there is a time where you run side-by-side, this time is critical as it is where the handoff of the baton happens.  In this way there was a period of time in Jesus ministry where he was running side-by-side with His disciples and he was preparing them to continue […]

Joshua 1:1-9 Men want to be strong, they want to be heroes and fight for a worthy cause.  God put this drive inside us for a reason and he had a purpose for it.  However we are meant to operate within the parameters that God has given us if we are to truly follow him […]

Luke 4:13-21 Our regrets and failures from the past can discourage us and keep us from living in freedom now.  The good news of Jesus is the restoration promised by the gospel.  Our God is a God who restores, he can take all of our regrets and bring beauty out of the ashes (Isaiah 61:1-7). Jesus is able to […]

Galatians 5:1-6 We have been set free from the law for we cannot achieve our salvation through our own righteousness.  We cannot achieve freedom from sin without Christ and His sacrifice on the cross.  What matters to God is faith expressing itself in love. We have been offered a new life of freedom from fear and […]

Titus 2:1-15 What does it look like to be in Christ and to be a new creation?  Popular culture will lead you in the opposing direction.  Our culture has a ‘growing up problem’, we are fighting the idea of growing older and accepting responsibility. We are to be sound in faith, love and endurance.  We are […]

Hebrews 2:14-15 In life we face many legitimate fears such as uncertainty, the unknown, pain, loss, failure and death.  When we live with our focus on fear of death we can focus inordinately on our earthly legacy, attempting to “leave something to be remembered by”, and in so doing we may hurt those we care […]

1 John 4:7-11 God is love and if we live through Christ love is made perfect in us! Natural love can be beautiful thing but it can also be corrupted without God.  Good things if they are put before God in our lives can become idols.  God expressed a pure and selfless love when He […]

Colossians 3:5-17 What does resurrection life look and feel like?  How does God’s power and my effort work together? Paster Kyle used the analogy of learning to Ride a Bike.  In this analogy the Bike is Salvation.  We didn’t earn it or pay for it, it was a gift from our Father.  We must have […]
