How Seriously Am I Taking Life Or Is It Just A Game?

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, but for the most part she has made good decisions and has been quick to correct any wrongs that she has done. Unlike some, you can tell that her faith in Christ is a significant part of her life and she is quite capable of making good decisions and discerning the proper response in view

Ephesians 2:11-13 Therefore Remember

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’.

Ephesians 2:4-5 But God

Our text this morning is in Ephesians 2:1-10. And you were dead in the trespasses and sins 2 in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience— 3 among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. 4 But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, 5 even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— 6 and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly place
