I want to tell you where we’re going to end our study. We’re going to end by singing together, “Amazing love, how can it be that You, my God, would die for me?” That’s where we’ll finish. Let me tell you the thesis from our whole study. If you remember nothing else, you can remember this and you’ll be in good shape. The core of what we’re going...

And before we jump in and read, just something to consider. I recently heard a story in a sermon about a man named Dick Kaufmann who was a former all-American football player and Harvard MBA and now he is a pastor in San Diego. And he told the story that when he was younger, he would get so overwhelmed with anxiety and it would be so heavy for...

Rewire

You will have noticed as we read it through together, the passage divides into two neat sections, each part with three verses in each, both of which begin with a word of exhortation.

As you’re being seated, please take your Bibles and turn to the book of James, a New Testament book. It’s found on page 1011 if you’re using a pew Bible. Again, good to see you; glad you’re here. We’re continuing our studies in James this evening and we’ll be looking at verses 13 to 16 together, and again, that’s found on page 1011. Before we listen...

Behold, A Throne

Please take a copy of the holy Scriptures and turn with me in them to Revelation chapter 3. Revelation chapter 3 at verse 1. You’ll find that on page 1029 in our church Bibles. We’re reading the message of the risen Christ now to the church in the city of Sardis. You will recall, if you’ve been with us over these weeks as we’ve studied the...

Stories that Stick

There were only thirty-seven laps left. He was in the lead. His fuel light was on, and a caution flag was waving because a wreck had just happened. And yet he radioed back to the crew, “No, I think I can make it.” They warned him saying, “Your light’s on. It’s thirty-seven laps.” And he said, “No, I think I can make it.” And he was in the...

Please turn with me in your Bibles to Genesis chapter 27.  Genesis chapter 27.  It begins on page 21 in the church Bible.  And before we read, something to consider.  This passage we are about to read, it may feel very distant from us.  This is a strange passage.  Someone after the eight-thirty service said, “That was a strange passage for Thanksgiving week.”  It’s a strange passage, but...
