Why Are We Seeking Jesus?

Date: November 27, 2016

The feeding of the 5000 is considered a major transition point in Jesus’ ministry. Crowds of people came to him, seeking him, wanting to learn more about this man who was doing these miraculous things. But after the feeding of the 5000, people stop following him and actually many turn away. Why do they do that? Why don’t they continue following him?

Satisfied In Christ

Date: June 19, 2016

C.S Lewis wrote in Mere Christianity; “If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world”. We have hopes, dreams, and expectations in life. But what happens when those dreams, hopes, and expectations aren’t fulfilled. Do we react like a 3 year old whose balloon just popped, or is there something better to ground us as we experience the ebbs and flows of life?

Sustained Through Humility

Date: June 12, 2016

Jesus Christ is a great man. He is wise, compassionate, gentle, approachable, loving, caring. As a man he is top of the charts for a potential husband. He is the Son of God and is one with his Father. His bride, the church, is made up of people, but what kind of people? And how does Jesus show his love for his bride?

 

What You Heard from the Beginning

Date: February 7, 2016

As John the Apostle writes to his beloved children in Ephesus, he desires to stir their hearts into remembering their beginnings; when they first believed in the Lord Jesus for salvation; when they first received the gospel in faith. But why is it so important to be reminded of our beginnings in the gospel? Do we have any control for how much the gospel affects us now compared to when we first believed?

Discerning the Body

Date: October 25, 2015

To partake of the Lord’s Supper is to remember the crucified body of our Lord. But when Paul writes to the Corinthian church the instructions to follow when coming together around the Lord’s table, and he tells them to discern the body, does Paul only have in view the crucifixion, or does he have more that he is communicating?

In Keeping With Repentance

Date: August 16, 2015

When John the Baptist appeared on the scene of history, the people of Jerusalem, Judea and all the area surrounding the Jordan came to see him. When they came it seems that they had some knowledge of what baptism was, so what did baptism look like to someone living in the first century?
