Did God Choose Me or Did I Choose God?

How much of the world has God determined in advance? Do we really have free choice? Did God choose me or did I choose God? For Further Reading: hand in Hand:The Beauty of God’s Sovereignty and Meaningful Human Choice by Randy Alcorn

You’ve Got Mail

Individual churches have both strengths and growth areas. In the beginning words of Revelation, Jesus has some messages he wants delivered to some specific churches. We get the benefit of reading their mail.

How Transformation Happens

The story of Zacchaeus is taught to kids, but also challenges adults.  It’s a reminder of God’s heart for lost people and the obstacles they face in seeing Jesus. 

Fighting Solitary Conceit

The pandemic has made gathering difficult over the last two years. An essential function of what it means to be a church is rooted in the gathering of community. We all need community to feel encouraged, to flourish and to thrive.

Kicking Up Dust

In Acts 6 the church faced a problem due to its growth that could have fractured it. How the Apostles handled it became an example for commissioning leaders.

Everything Is Against Me

You’ve not only thought it, you’ve probably said it. “The world is against me.”  But reality can often be far from it.  Joseph (and Jacob) have every reason to think that. But they learn that God is actually working through those very struggles for thier good. He is doing the same thing in your life.

Courting Trouble

Conflict is inevitable, combat is optional. Keep from destroying the community of believers by following the Pathway to Reconciliation.

Good Drivers

It’s easy for good drivers to be judgmental of those who have careless wrecks.  Jesus tells a story that challenges our hearts for those whose lives have gone off in the ditch.
