Before we read the text, I’d like to follow up on what Wiley said earlier at the beginning of the service. That is, our Mission Conference starts this next Sunday. Actually, we have three conferences back to back. What I mean by that is, we have a pre-conference on Friday and Saturday, which is called Gospel Renewal Dynamics for Leaders. But really, we’re all in a sphere of...

The Gospel for the Rest of Us

Do you want to age well? That is a silly question. Everybody in here does. And I was reading a study recently. The most comprehensive, longitudinal study ever conducted by Harvard. It’s called the Grant Study. And they followed the lives of this remarkable class from Harvard in the ‘30s – like John F. Kennedy was part of this class. They followed these men’s lives for over seventy...

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...

Holy Spirit, would You please open our eyes, open our hearts, open our lives, that we may behold, that we may treasure, and that we may celebrate wonderful things that You...

It’s a great pleasure to be with you this evening.  It’s a great honor to be asked to do this.  I don’t know if David Strain really knew what he was doing when he asked me to do this because I have a tendency to embarrass those who are very dear to me.  You can just ask my wife about that!  Many of you may not know that...
