God’s Way

God’s Way Joshua 3 Unbelievers live life their own way but believers have to live their life God’s way to receive God’s blessing. This morning we are going to learn about God teaching to the Israelites to do thing God’s way to get blessing from him. Joshua 3 tells the story of the crossing of the Jordan River. We can begin by asking an important question: Why does this…

Pray for Me

A better Way to Pray Ephesians 6:18-20  “What do you think Christ wants this church (you are this church) to be?” From that question came a second one: “What would happen in our church if every member (I mean you) was prayed for every single day by someone?” And what a question. We all believe in prayer, don’t we? Even if we don’t pray very much, we still…

Hoping for the Better

Ephesians 5:15-17 My text today is very short, only three verses. And the verses themselves are short. They are often overlooked because they are sandwiched between two passages that are very well known.  The title of this message comes from the middle verse, which speaks of making the most every opportunity because the days are evil. We need to hear what God is…

Something Big Happens Here

Something Big Happens Here God wants you to be better Ephesians 3:10 Wow, today it seems like a normal day as other day except we have to be in the church. Is that right? Sometimes you discover a new truth by accident. Something big is happening here right now and many of you may be missed it if you are not very careful. What is it? It happened to me sometimes. Here I…

To Know God Better

T Ephesians 1:15-23 What if your prayers were revealed? On Facebook or on TV. That’s a fascinating (and slightly scary) thought, isn’t it? What if every prayer you prayed, word for word, somehow ended up on the Internet so that anyone, anywhere could read them? Would your prayers be worth reading if they were published? And would they qualify for the pages of Holy…

Living by God’s Wisdom

Living by God’s Wisdom James 3:17-18 People believed John Wayne said, “Life is hard. It’s harder when you’re stupid.” We chuckle at that because we all know it’s true. Let’s flip that statement around into something positive: “Life is hard, but it’s easier when you have God’s wisdom.” That’s better, isn’t it? And it’s just as true as the first statement. Our problem…

Wise Up about What Matters Most

Wise Up about What Matters Most James 1:5-8 I first ran into a proverb “Too soon old, too late smart.” The first part is certainly true. We are too soon old. The young folks don’t understand this, but soon they will. Nothing is more certain than the passage of time. Yesterday we were born, today we live, tomorrow we die. Life rushes on for all of us. The second…

Praying Boiling Prayers

Praying Boiling Prayers James 5:16-18 We face two dangers whenever we talk about prayer. We can make prayer seem so difficult that only the “super-Christians” can pray effectively while the rest of us just muddle along. Sometimes the stories we tell about saints who spent hours on their knees crying out to God end up discouraging us because we’re busy and tired and the…

Living the Word

Live the Word James 1:21-25 This morning, I want to talk to you about how to better listening the Word of God and live it. Here in this passage James is talking about listening to God’s Word. They didn’t have printed Bibles in the first century. When James says, “Be doers of the Word and not hearers only,” he means both parts of that statement literally. You heard…
