Join us as we study through the Gospel of Matthew in 2017. Through this book we will see Jesus revealed as the King of the Jews, the Promised Messiah, the Savior of the World. As you interact with the life and teachings of Jesus, you will find yourself challenged – and if you will submit to Jesus as Lord you will find your life forever changed.
Temptation is the seductive little voice that twists what you want into what you need. It distorts your thoughts until you’re trapped—and when you’re trapped by temptation, it’s not the time to listen to yourself. Learn to put your trust in someone who knows A Way Out. God always gives us a way out. We won’t try to manage temptation, but eliminate it. We will attack temptation from a positive perspective by focusing on living by the Spirit.
A “paradox” is defined as a seemingly self-contradictory declaration but is in fact true.
One of the great paradoxes of Scripture is that the more you give, the more you get. You find your life by losing it. You win by losing. When you first begin living generously, it feels like everything is coming undone. It’s stretching and uncomfortable. But slowly, you begin to realize there’s more to life than what you own and can hold onto.
Do you feel empty? Is there something lacking? Do you long for something but don’t quite know what it is? If so, you are not alone.
Often, in an attempt to fill this void, people seek out a cause, a philosophy, a relationship, or even a ‘look.’ We all seek some kind of identity. For a while those things we seek are entertaining and even exciting; but ultimately, the same emptiness comes back to haunt us.
If you can relate, please join us this Easter season and find the answers you’ve been looking for. Our “Empty” sermon series begins March 20th and will run through April 17th.
Fear attacks us right where our faith lives and keeps us from stepping into the plans God has for us. Fear Not helps us overcome fear and transform it into faith and obedience. With messages on the angels’ visits to Mary, Joseph, and the shepherds, Fear Not assures us that God will always give us the guidance we need to reject fear.
