Dr. Steven Lawson has said, “We live in a day, in which there are many spiritual light weights, who have light, fluffy, superficial thoughts about God, that just blow like a tumbleweed across the horizon of the church. We want to come back to deep thoughts about God, great and grand thoughts about who God is, as He is presented in His Word.”

With this in mind, consider these words from our text today, “And h...

Ephesians 4:1-6,

As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and...

David Leyshon was a pastor for fourteen years. He loved being a pastor, but he is no longer in the ministry. He did not step down from ministry because...

    • of a moral failure,

    • a bad church split,

    • he did not chose a different vocation,

    • he did not get burned out,

    • he did not retire.

He stepped down from being a pastor because he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s dise...

Typically, I would now ask you to open your bibles to Ephesians 3:20-21 so that we could continue our study in the book of Ephesians. We very rarely deviate from our study of a book, but today I have decided to do so.

Because of the things that have happened in this season of life it seems best to take a Sunday to use other texts of scripture to encourage our hearts and to direct our steps as we go trough th...

John Bunyan, the author of Pilgrim’s Progress, wrote an autobiographical book called, ‘Grace Abounding’. As you come to the end of this book John Bunyan is in prison and his wife, Elizabeth, is trying to procure his freedom.

What was the crime that he had committed that caused him to be put into prison and labeled a pestilent-fellow and a disturber of the peace?

What had he done that resulted in him being hat...

This week, Gerry Sandel will be putting out three Sunday School devotionals which pertain to Mark 13. Mark 13:1-2 says, “And as He came out of the temple, one of his disciples said to him, ‘Look, Teacher, what wonderful stones and what wonderful buildings!’ And Jesus said to him, ‘Do you see these great buildings? There will not be left here one stone upon another that will not be thrown down.”

  • I wonder...

Our text this morning is found in Ephesians 2:11-22. (14-18)

Therefore remember that at one time you Gentiles in the flesh, called “the uncircumcision” by what is called the circumcision, which is made in the flesh by hands— remember that you were at that time separated from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the worl...

One of the things that I have been doing during this time of self-isolation is that I watch old Survivor episodes and then Jon Moe and I discuss them in view of our faith. There is no doubt that it would be a hard game to play while maintaining your faith and a good conscience.

In the season that I am watching there is a lady who has done a really good job of living out her faith. It has not always been easy...

In the movie Captain America, Steve Rogers asks Dr. Erskine, “Why me?” Steve wants to know why he has been chosen for the honor of going through the program that will turn him into ‘Captain America’. Steve knows that he is the least deserving of all the candidates.

Dr. Erskine says to him, “A strong man, who has known power all his life, may loose respect for that power; but a weak man knows the value of str...

I would like to begin this morning with the account in Matthew of the Resurrection of Jesus. Let us consider Matthew 28:1-10,

Now after the Sabbath, toward the dawn of the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb. And behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was li...
