Christmas service

Since the fall, God has been working his plan on redeeming humanity and reuniting his relationship with us. Jesus’ incarnation is pinnacle of his plan. God came to earth and dwelt among us. Now we all have access to a relationship with the creator.

Christmas Presence – Part 3

“Where there is no vision, the people perish” God, desiring to be near His creation met them in the Holiest of the Holy place in temple. That temple took different forms over time and today, God resides in us. We are the temple of God.

Christmas Presence – Part 2

The world is broken. Since the fall we know we are not at home. There are many pointers in the bible showing us the hope we have in God’s Kingdom. We confidently climb Mnt. Zion.

Christmas Presence – Part 1

One of the most powerful pieces of the Christmas story is the phrase “God with us.” This is an amazing thought! Though humanity first hid from God’s presence He continues to draw nearer and nearer to his people. The story of God coming to be with us is powerful. Living in God’s presence is where we find true fulfillment and joy.

Faith in a Time of Unbelief – Part 9

The final part of the series, Elisha prophesied that God would deliver Israel from siege. The armies of Samaria flee and the spoils are found by lepers. Evangelism is just one beggar telling another beggar where to find bread, the bread of life.

Faith in a Time of Unbelief – Part 5

Elijah invests in the next generation, he calls Elisha to the service of God. Elisha, “burns the yokes” of his past and asks for double blessings of the Lords spirit. God blesses a nation through revival. Pray for revival in our land.

Faith in a Time of Unbelief – Part 4

Elijah’s expectation of Israel’s response to the slaughter of the prophets was met with a harsh reality. He went from a mountain top moment to running for his life. The LORD comes close, encourages and guides him again.

Faith in a Time of Unbelief – Part 2

God provides! We look at a story of how God provides for Elijah in remarkable ways Though God’s provision for you will not likely come from ravens dropping food He will provide generously and powerfully in your life.

Faith in a Time of Unbelief – Part 1

We tend to think of Old Testament times as so different from our own – full of strange, old-fashioned problems that we might have trouble relating to in our modern era. When we take a closer look, though, we find that our times are not much different from theirs in some of the most important ways. Sure, our lives are different because of technology and modern conveniences, but the challenge of where we should place our hope and the battle between the true God and rival gods remains. Our times have their own false gods that demand our allegiance and tempt us to turn our eyes away from the living God. We will be looking at a key story each week from the lives of Elijah and Elisha in 1 and 2 Kings. These stories will help us understand and remember how to place our faith firmly in the true God in a time of widespread unbelief.
