The Hand that Holds the Future

Going into 2019 with confidence

December 30, 2018 • Tom Louis

Throughout the Bible, the “hand of the LORD” represents God’s power, His actions, His blessings and more. Because the LORD is eternal, He also holds the future. As you enter 2019, go forward with confidence by knowing the One whose hand you are in.

Part 4: Love Honors

Love Unleashed • September 15, 2019 • Randy Hageman

Life is often hard and unfair. Our almost constant temptation is to get even, to talk about others behind their back because they did that to us, to make fun of those who are different. But Jesus called us to a counter-cultural lifestyle – to love! And 1 Corinthians 13 tells us that to unleash love means love honors others and isn’t selfish. This may not sound very fair when others are mistreating us, but disciples of Jesus are called to a higher, and better standard, as we’ll see today!

Part 3: Love Sacrifices

Love Unleashed • September 8, 2019 • Randy Hageman

The world around us encourages us to look out for ourselves because no one else will. We do need to take care of ourselves, but too often today taking care of ourselves becomes more about putting ourselves first, of lifting ourselves up at the expense of others. But love calls us to a different lifestyle, that in the short-term doesn’t seem to pay off very well. But Jesus promises us that to serve others and sacrifice for their sake is always worth it!

Part 2: Love Cares

Every day, people utter the words “I love you” to those for whom they care. But are we really loving others in the way that Christ called us to love? Are we really caring for them in the way that we were meant to care for them? Today we are going to look at how patience plays a vital role in caring for the people we love.
