God in the Gap       January 19, 2019
How do we respond when confronted with difficult situations, where we just don't understand why and for what purpose they occur? There are many areas where our knowledge is incomplete. This message discusses these voids in our lives and encourages us to direct our thoughts toward God and His Son, Jesus Christ, who search our hearts, test, teach, and develop us - and will ultimately fill these gaps in our understanding.
Behold the Man       March 30, 2019
The Passover season is upon us, commemorating the sacrifice of the Lamb of God for the sins of humanity. Jesus Christ was that Lamb, the King of the Jews, and the Son of God. He was also a man. Based on the gospel of John, the events of Jesus' trial, interaction with Pontius Pilate, and subsequent crucifixion are highlighted, as we are asked to "Behold the Man."
Catalyst       June 9, 2018
On the Day of Pentecost following Christ's resurrection, God gave to a few people of humble origins the power to accomplish unimaginable things. Pentecost was the fulfillment of promises by God the Father through Jesus Christ. The gift of God's Holy Spirit was and is made available to all who respond to God's calling. That Spirit convicts us of sin, brings us to repentance and guides us to conformity with the will of God in our lives. This message reflects on the powerful sermon given by Peter on that day and highlights the truth of the centrality of Jesus Christ in Pentecost and all of the biblical Holy Days.
Daniel 2 - It's a Bad Dream       June 29, 2018
This is the second of a series on how to live while in Babylon. Living in Babylon is a euphemism for God’s people living under a foreign, semi-pagan world system. Lessons from the book of Daniel are highlighted, including what to expect, how to react, and how not to react in a world and society that does not know God.
Daniel 3 -- Pavlovian Babylon Worship       August 3, 2018
The third in a series on the book of Daniel exploring the premise that we live in a type of Babylon - a world system that is antithetical to God and His Way. This message, based on Daniel 3, analyzes the challenges faced by Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah. That account has lessons which we can apply today, as we strive to live in accordance with God's will and respond appropriately to the culture in which we find ourselves.
Where He Places His Name       September 21, 2018
A discussion of the significant purpose of where God places His Name. Where do we find this expression? What context? Does it apply today?
Life After Life       September 30, 2018
The Feast of Trumpets has many facets. What does it mean to us right now? This day reminds us of our lives in the present and brings to our awareness the eternal life we shall be given - from this life to the next.
Daniel 4 -- Babyonia Egomania, Daniel's Fix       November 23, 2018
This is the fourth in a series on the book of Daniel, proposing that we live in a type of Babylon - a different world system that does not know God. This message, based on Daniel Chapter 4, analyzes the humbling of King Nebuchadnezzar and highlights lessons that we can apply while living in this present day Babylon.
Daniel 5 -- The Last Night in Babylon       December 21, 2018
We live in a type of Babylon - a culture that does not know God. This message is the fifth of a series on the book of Daniel, drawing lessons on how to live and respond appropriately in this world, while staying true to the faith. Examining the events in Chapter 5, Daniel reminds us just as with Belshazzar, what we have known, shown to be true and how repentance, humility, and living according to God's way benefits us.
