God Is Interested in Your Heart

9/19/2018
More
MESSAGE SUMMARY: God is interested in our hearts; He wants us to have righteous hearts. God makes us new creations through our new hearts created by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in our lives – God changes our thinking and our attitudes. In Romans 8:26-27, Paul describes the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in followers of Jesus resulting in a new person, with a new heart, in Jesus: “Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the...

In Your Personal Relationship with God, You Pray to the Creator of the Universe

9/18/2018
More
MESSAGE SUMMARY: God is your Heavenly Father and the Creator of the Universe; however, we can talk to Him as our father, and remember that He loves us. Imagine climbing up into His lap, and imagine Him wrapping His arms around us – He is God our loving father. As God tells us in 2 Samuel 7:14-15: “I will be to him a father, and he shall be to me a son. When he commits iniquity, I will discipline him with the rod of men, with the stripes of the sons of men, but my steadfast love will not...

Are You Refusing to Forgive Others?

9/17/2018
More
MESSAGE SUMMARY: If God has forgiven me, why do I have to confess my sins? Confession is for us. For us to forgive, as the Christ forgives us, means that we release others from the offense that we believe they have committed. Jesus set the “forgiveness standard” for us as Paul tells us in Ephesians 4:31-32: “Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ...

Lord, Please Have Mercy on Me a Sinner

9/16/2018
More
MESSAGE SUMMARY: We don't deserve God's mercy because we are all sinners, but we come before God for His mercy. Paul tells us so succinctly tells us, in Romans 2:4-5, that without God’s mercy and our repentance we would be facing God’s wrath at judgment: “do you presume on the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience, not knowing that God's kindness is meant to lead you to repentance? But because of your hard and impenitent heart you are storing up wrath for yourself on the day of...

Jesus Asks: “Who Do You Say that I Am?”.

9/15/2018
More
MESSAGE SUMMARY: The greatest question, that we will ever face in our lives, is the question Jesus asked His disciples: “Who do you say that I am?”. Who was Jesus? Who is Jesus? In John 20:27-29, Jesus had an exchange with the Apostle Thomas, after His Resurrection; and Thomas answered Jesus’ question, for us, for all eternity: “Then he {Jesus} said to Thomas, ‘Put your finger here, and see my hands; and put out your hand, and place it in my side. Do not disbelieve, but believe.’ Thomas...

The Real Miracle of the Cross Is for You, If You Accept

9/14/2018
More
MESSAGE SUMMARY: The real miracle of the Cross, today, is for those who enter a relationship with Jesus and know the presence of God in their life. Those taking advantage of Jesus’ sacrifice on the Cross experience the removal of their sinful guilt, and they know the joy of a personal relationship with Jesus the Christ. Jesus’ sacrifice on the Cross is for all who believe. As Paul tells us in Romans 1:16: “For Christ did not send me to baptize but to preach the gospel, and not with words of...

For Believers in Jesus, He Has Given Us Life and Life Eternal

9/13/2018
More
MESSAGE SUMMARY: By accepting Jesus, we can be born of the Holy Spirit and have our sins forgiven by His sacrificial death on the cross. Paul explains, in Philippians 3:9b-12, that Jesus “has made me His own”: ‘but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith— that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, that by any means possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead....

In Your Sin, Will You Repent and Return to God?

9/12/2018
More
MESSAGE SUMMARY: If you repent to God of your sins and return to God in your life, He will return to you. Whenever we fall into sin, do we repent and return to the Lord? Hopefully, our answer is: "I will, with God's help.". Our God wants us to return to Him because He loves us -- He is a covenant God. In Malachi 3:7, God admonishes His people who have turned away from Him; but God promises His return to His people if they return to Him: “From the days of your fathers you have turned aside...

Today, There is Much Confusion About Jesus – Who Is Jesus to You?

9/11/2018
More
MESSAGE SUMMARY: The greatest question that we will ever face in our lives is the question Jesus asked His disciples: “Who do you say that I am?”. Who was Jesus? Who is Jesus? In Jesus’ exchange with the Apostle Thomas, after Jesus’ Resurrection, Thomas answers this question posed by Jesus in John 20:27-29: “Then he {Jesus} said to Thomas, ‘Put your finger here, and see my hands; and put out your hand, and place it in my side. Do not disbelieve, but believe.’ Thomas answered him, ‘My Lord...

Without Jesus’ Resurrection from Death, Our Faith Is Useless

9/10/2018
More
MESSAGE SUMMARY: What does the Resurrection of Jesus the Christ have to do with us? Paul, in 1 Corinthians 15:13-14, summarizes the implications of Jesus’ death if His resurrection had not occurred: “But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain.". Because of what God did in raising Jesus from the dead, we have forgiveness of our sins -- the crucifixion was not...

Jesus Was Both God and Man, but He Was Tempted Like Us

9/9/2018
More
MESSAGE SUMMARY: In Jesus' temptation, He has shown us how to face our temptations. When Jesus was tempted, He quoted Scripture; the most powerful weapon that God has given us – as Paul directed us in Ephesians 6:17-18: "In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God . . .”. Also, Paul, in 1 Corinthians 10:13, tells us that, like...

God’s Mercy Gives Us Undeserved Direct Access to Him

9/8/2018
More
MESSAGE SUMMARY: We can say that "there but for the grace of God go I", but we are ALL sinners. James tells us in James 4:8,10: “Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you.". We cannot pray and enter the "Throne Room of God" in our pride -- we can only enter the "Throne Room" as we humble ourselves before Jesus. (NOTE: You can, also, refer to the “Prayer...

We Have the Answer Pain and Agony Around Us, but We Keep it to Ourselves

9/7/2018
More
MESSAGE SUMMARY: While blessing us so that we might be a blessing to other people; God has healed us so that we might bring God's healing powers to others. God has saved us so that we can be His ambassadors. As Jesus commissioned His Apostles, just before His Ascension, in Matthew 28;19-20: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am...

If We Return to God, He Will Return to Us

MESSAGE SUMMARY: Whenever we fall into sin, do we repent and return to the Lord? Hopefully, our answer is: "I will, with God's help.". Our God wants us to return to Him because He loves us -- He is a covenant God. In Malachi 3:7, God admonishes His people who have turned away from Him; but God promises His return to His people if they return to Him: “From the days of your fathers you have turned aside from my statutes and have not kept them. Return to me, and I will return to you, says the...

God is Love -- Self-Sacrificing Love

9/5/2018
More
MESSAGE SUMMARY: We are made in the image of God; therefore, we are supposed to be perfect mirrors of God's Agape Love (i.e. self-sacrificing love). In 1 John 4:16-17 (The New Testament book of 1 John is believed to have been written by the Apostle John, author of the “Gospel of John”.), John tells us about God’s Love: “So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. By this is love perfected...

God’s Grace Has Given Us Eternal Life Through Jesus

9/4/2018
More
MESSAGE SUMMARY: We have eternal life through God’s Son, Jesus. When we do not have the Son of God, we do not have eternal life; but when we have the Son of God, we have eternal life. Jesus’ death and resurrection not only transforms our lives; His death transforms our deaths – the grave is no longer the end. Cancer is not the end and getting old is not the end. As Paul tells us in Romans 5:18-19: “Therefore, as one trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness leads...

Someone Must Pay for Your Sins – God’s Grace Permitted Jesus’ Sacrifice for You

9/3/2018
More
MESSAGE SUMMARY: The purpose of Jesus’ death on the cross was to sacrifice Himself to provide us a sacrifice, God’s required blood sacrifice, for our sins which we could not do for ourselves. In Romans 5:18-21, Paul succinctly explains Jesus’ unique role, that only Jesus could play, in our Justification and Salvation – a role that begins with God’s Grace: “Therefore, as one trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all men. For...

Judgement Is Coming at Your Death or Sooner; How Are You Preparing Now?

9/2/2018
More
MESSAGE SUMMARY: Jesus tells us about Judgment in John 5:25,29: “Truly, truly, I say to you, an hour is coming, and is now here, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live . . . and come out, those who have done good to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil to the resurrection of judgment.". Since Judgment is coming, are you doing all you can to keep your relationship with the Lord growing? Given certain Judgment for all, a primary...

Through Jesus, You May Receive Mercy and Find Grace to Help in Your Time of Need

9/1/2018
More
MESSAGE SUMMARY: The author of Hebrews, in Hebrews 4:14-16, identifies Jesus, for Christians, as the sinless, yet tempted, God-Man who is our Great High Priest: “Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the...

Jesus Will Return to Greet Us – When We Die or Before We Die

8/31/2018
More
MESSAGE SUMMARY: As Christians and citizens of Heaven, we know that the Lord is coming back -- either to greet us when we die or before we die. For most of us, however, our vision of Heaven is clouded by looking backwards; therefore, the return of Jesus does not have any power in our life. Paul reinforces the return of the Lord of Heaven {Jesus} in Philippians 1:6: “And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.". When...
