Ephesians 4:1-16 Salvation is a gift from God. None of us are worthy in and of ourselves. It is only through Christ that we can live a changed life walking as Jesus would have us to. At Christmas time there is often a pile of gifts, different shapes, different sizes, different things. The church is […]

Luke 10:38-42, John 5:24 – Are you thrilled to be a Christian today? We have passed from death to life because of Christ. There was an important visitor coming to Martha’s house.

For a number of reasons the sermon this morning does not have any notes attached to it… We apologize for this, and will try our best to return to doing things in a consistent manner going forward. John 16 – A Clear Advantage for You
Why don’t you “come and see.” This is one of the simplest ways to talk to people about Jesus. We can argue all day about Jesus, but often it is best to simply say, “come and see.” Jesus called 12 disciples. He calls us as well. We are his disciples, we his work must do. Jesus knew Nathanial. He saw him under the fig tree, before Philip called him. Jesus knows everything about everyone. Which would be scary, except that Jesus loves all of us. Do we recognize Jesus? Jesus knows and recognizes us, but can…
Abel’s blood was speaking so loudly that it was heard in heaven. The blood of Jesus, which was shed on the cross is speaking better things than the blood of Abel. Blood is very important.

Abel’s blood in the ground was really bad news for Cain. Jesus blood for us is very good news!
There are a lot of things that change, but Jesus never changes. He is rock solid. This doesn’t mean that he doesn’t move. Jesus is always at work and moving among and within those who are his. We will all face death. Death is a huge change. If we know Jesus it is a great change. If we do not know Jesus it is a really bad change. Niagara falls is considered to be one of the 7 wonders of the world.
We should praise the Lord because God hears us when we pray. God doesn’t always answer prayer the way that we want him to, but he does hear our prayers. David was experiencing great fear that the people of Gath would kill him. So he did something very strange… he pretended to be insane. God is near to those who have a broken and crushed spirit.
Five words can communicate so much if they are in a language that we can understand.
– I will build my church.
– Ye must be born again.
– Seek ye first the kingdom.
– Ask and you shall receive.
– I am with you always.
