Is Jesus Enough?

Rescued from This Evil Age
The words in Galatians 1:3-5 "Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be glory for ever and ever....
Live as Free People
We're talking about our freedom in Christ. That's what this message of the Gospel does. He has set us free to experience the new life He's given us. In 1 Peter 2:16 we read: "Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil;...
Serve One Another in Love
Serve one another in love. The entire law is summed up in one command, to serve one another. "It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery." Galatians 5:1 This is...
Made Alive in Christ
How has the Gospel message renewed your mind? For me - when I came to Christ - I knew the Gospel as the forgiveness of sins. I lived that for 8 or 9 years and zero power to fight the temptations that came. I was in a cycle of messing up and asking God...
Put Off the Old

The Secret of Contentment
John 8:31b, 32 "If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." We've been set free from the law of sin and death. Jesus is the one that did that and He makes us alive with Him....

Sinners or Saints?
"Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase?" How do you answer that? If we're forgiven people, than why behave... Romans 6 shows us we are made different. We've been changed on the inside. So are we sinners or saints? Jesus says we're born of...
The good news is the: Jesus Christ is alive. The truth of this takes us from death to life. We've been talking about freedom with the Exodus as the backdrop. Is the rescue of the Jewish people from the Egyptians. You can imagine what is was like for...
Living in a Sunday World
Freedom is what we all long for. It's what we all want in life. No one wants to return to bondage after being freed. And it's freedom that we have in Jesus Christ alone. One of the great stories in the Bible is the Israelites being freed from Egypt....
A Step into the Unknown

Freedom in Christ Alone
There is a freedom that we have as children of God that nothing in the world can rob us of. We need to stand firm in that freedom. There are obstacles to that freedom. We're all natural-born legalists. And only through faith in Christ are we made...
