Sermons on Discipleship
Exodus is not just a story from long ago. The same God who called Moses calls us into his work. Listen in as Ashley Malloy, a medical missionary to Malawi, shares how God called and provided each step of the way.
Chaplain John Richardson explores the Israelites quick tendency to turn away from the very God who has delivered them. Exodus 32-24
Most of us don’t care much about what the law says until we need it. God knew that his people would need his law for their good. In Exodus 21-23 we discover God’s heart for the vulnerable, his justice for society, and his protection for our hearts.
The giving of the Ten Commandments was a holy moment between God and Israel. 3500 years later the 10 Commandments are still a hot topic. In this message we process what the 10 Commandments are and what the impact in the life of a Christian is.
No one likes the scenic route when you want to be on the direct route. Yet that is exactly the way God led the Israelites. And the long way was a form of his grace to them. If you are on the long route, you’ll be encouraged by this message.

Are there moments when you feel you are living in a world where you can’t see the way forward? In those moments of darkness we wish we had someone to take us by the hand and lead us forward. In our text today Jesus radically transforms a man’s life who is blind because the man refused to let Jesus pass him by. His pain is the very thing that leads him to cling to Jesus.
Can you imagine what it would have been like to sit and listen to Jesus pray? We don’t have to follow a specific formula to talk with God, but practicing different ways to pray can help us find deeper purpose and connection to Him through our prayer time. When Jesus taught his disciples to pray he gave them a prayer outline called “The Lords Prayer.”
It would be great if we always knew the best decision to make. Many times the choices aren’t so clear. Sometimes the best we have is God’s general direction. In Genesis 24 Abraham is learning to lean into God’s leading in the decisions he faces that affect the covenant generation.
Your joy of giving to others isn’t tied to what’s in your bank account. Our joy is rooted in Jesus’ work in our life. That means when your bank account balance isn’t what you’d like, you can still the experience the joy that comes from giving to others because your joy is rooted in something that doesn’t go up & down.
