    Christmas Comfort
    Series: general
    The irony of this season is that while it makes our highs a little bit higher, it can also makes our lows a little bit lower, our emptiness a little bit deeper, and our loneliness a little bit greater.  We may find ourselves asking the question, “Where is God in all of my circumstances?”  Christmas is the answer to that question!  “They shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.”

    Thank Therapy
    Series: general
    In this world we will face hurt, sickness, disappointment, and poverty, but God has provided a way for us to have peace and comfort regardless of circumstances.  The Apostle Paul gives us this secret in 1 Thessalonians 5:18.  He writes we are to exhibit thankfulness in everything because it is God’s will for our lives.  An attitude of thankfulness will change our perspective and refocus our attention on the things that matter the most.

    God alone has the authority and power to speak into existence something from nothing.  Romans chapter five teaches us He “calls those things which do not exist as though they did.”  We can declare His promises over our lives because He has already spoken them into existence.

    Perfect Patience
    Series: general
    James instructs his readers to allow patience to “have its perfect work,” but what does that mean?  In this message, we look at how to remain steadfast in trials, the effect of perfected patience in our lives, and how it will lead to maturity, wholeness, and blessing.

    Our Father
    Series: general
    In our relationship with God, we project upon Him the failures and inadequacies of our natural fathers.  If our father was aloof or absent, we may see God as disinterested in our lives.  If our father was abusive, verbally or physically, we may see God as judgmental and impatient.  In contrast, the Bible teaches us that our heavenly Father loves and values us because we are His children.  And unlike man, He does not change His mind!

    Waiting On The Promise
    Series: general
    Waiting on God in our lives can be intimidating and lonely.  It is easy to isolate ourselves and become impatient, giving up just before God’s promise if fulfilled.  We must recognize that while God will always fulfill His promises, He does so according to His predetermined timing.  He is never a moment early, but always right on time.

    Our Expectation Vs. God’s Reality
    Series: general
    Right Perspective Christian Stock ImagesThe followers of Christ who gathered with Him just before His ascension were expecting Him to restore Israel as a kingdom and deliver them from the tyranny of the Roman government.  Their expectations were quickly shattered when Jesus told them it was not their place to know the Father’s timing.  God’s reality was so much larger; He planned to change the world!

    A Prepared Defense
    Series: general
    Morning Devotions Christian Stock ImageIn this message, we look at the Apostle Peter’s instruction to believers to “always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear.”  In order for Christians to properly live out this command, they must first know what they believe and why they believe it.

    Flee from sin and pursue peace
    In 1 Peter 3:8-12, the Apostle Peter provides us with four principles we can apply to our lives, which will result in a fulfilling life as a believer. In this week’s message, we look at the principle “Flee from sin and pursue peace.”  In order to flee from sin we must first understand the temptation we face is custom tailored for us and is a direct result of our personality, environment, experiences, and past sins.  Secondly, we must recognize sin is a process and not a spontaneous act.
