The Gift Of Hope

This Christmas, Jesus wants to give you a present: the gift of His presence.  Jesus is a giver!  And on His birthday, He wants to refresh you, fill you, heal you, restore you.  In this first message in our series, “Christmas Presence”, we will receive the gift of Hope in Christ.

This hope is not an idea, a wish, or a maybe, but a sure, steadfast confidence that will strengthen you and reinvigorate your motivation and energy.  Human optimism will fail, fleshly strength will run out, this world will disappoint, but you can have hope because of His promise.  Listen and receive the gift of hope.

Place On Top – Part 2

The Lord has a precious word for you; a word that will encourage you.  He wants to lift you up.  And the place God wants to take you to, you can’t get there on your own.  You need the Lord to lift you up.  Be encouraged as the Lord invites you into a deeper walk with Him.

Enjoy!

A Place On Top

In this series, we have been learning to walk with Jesus: to walk in His love for us and for others; to both receive and to give.   We have been experiencing Jesus’ ministry, compassion, and forgiveness.

In this message, Jesus calls us to walk with Him.  This message contains two powerful words from God for this season; I believe these words will strengthen and encourage you. Let the Lord speak to you as you listen.

Enjoy!

Moved By Compassion

Jesus was led by the Spirit, but He was also moved with compassion.  Everything He did was in the power of the Spirit and done by faith; and everything He did was motivated, compelled, moved by a deep compassion for people.

As you listen to this message, you will discover how much God loves you and how He is moved with compassion towards you.  And the example of Jesus will impact you to walk as He walked and be moved with compassion towards people.

Enjoy!

 

Measure of a Disciple

The measure of a disciple is the measure of love; the measure of Christlikeness; the measure of trustworthiness; the measure of fruitfulness.  Everything Jesus did in His earthly ministry was done in faith by the power of the Spirit and always to serve people in love. The measure of a disciple is not faith, but love.

In this series we are learning to walk in love–both to receive Jesus’ love for us and to give it away to others.  Hear how Jesus loves and walk in that love.

Enjoy!

 

Meaningful Relationships

We’ve been discovering that when the Holy Spirit moves He not only saves, heals, grows the church and such; He also heals relationships, unites, and deepens intimate connection with God and others. This is the power of fellowship.  It is not something the world comprehends, nor something religion can manufacture.  It is something only the Holy Spirit can produce in us, the body of Christ.

This intimate, deep, meaningful, satisfying connection with God and people is what we were made for, what we all long for. As you listen to this message, let the Lord show you how He can produce this depth of unity in us–in our church, family, friendships and such.

Enjoy!

Becoming One

Friends,

Do you realize that Jesus died for the unity of the church!?  He didn’t only die for your personal sins, but our corporate ones as well–the ones that keep us divided and broken.  Jesus prayed for unity and paid for unity.  Why!?  Because He died to heal the whole person and the whole world which is knit together or torn apart by the quality of our relationships.

The unity of the church will be a light in darkness; will bring hope to families.  But unity is not something we can manufacture; it has to be produced by the power of the Holy Spirit.  Find out how in this message.

Enjoy!
