Our Amazing God

John 17:20-23 • May 22, 2016 • Dr. Sherwood

God touches us in different ways. For some God overwhelms with emotions and passions of his love and greatness, and then those emotions drive deeper into mind, choices, desires. These may experience mountain-top highs in worship. For me, God usually touches me through the gate not of emotions, but of the mind, through knowledge, through understanding, through words and facts, and from that mind gate, he sweeps on in to touch emotionally. My mind is the normal pathway for God to access my passions and heart. God delights in our efforts to search him out, drill down into the depths with him. What better way to spend our lives than in getting to know our tri-personal God and enjoying him? Life Change | Our Amazing God | John 17:20-23

Character > Sin

Psalm 103:10-14 • May 15, 2016 • Pastor Doug Nelms Jr.

Are our bad circumstances God’s punishment? If we are were, this is probably the thought that what default to when things go south for the believer. If you are not a disciple of Jesus, you still struggle with this same thing. In fact this may be one of your biggest hurdles to religion, the perception that God is in the business of enacting retribution on His people. If this is you, what we have in this text, will cause complete life change once understood. Life Change | Character > Sin | Psalm 103:10-14

Perfect...

James 1:2-4 • May 29, 2016 • Pastor Ralph Gordon

Now I know that this may not be the easiest thing for everyone to admit, but large in part we see trials as something to just endure. Your difficult boss, your over bearing mother, your penny pinching husband, your chronic pains, your neighborhood, the last two reps in a workout, if were honest, we just want to get it over with. I get it. Especially when our favorite motto is “What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.” This may not be a warm and fuzzy, by no means, but what this says for believers is, this unshakeable gladness/happiness is tied to the hope we have in Christ. One does not rejoice in the trial itself, but in the benefit trials can bring. Life Change | Perfect.... | James 1:2-4
