What do you believe about Jesus? Your understanding of Jesus Christ is critical to your relationship with God. Whenever the truth about Jesus is muddied, people get confused and their eternal destiny is at risk. LetÂ’s take a look at some deeper truths that St. John shares with us about Jesus.
Pleasure, possessions, pride. It seems we spend our entire lives striving to fulfill these desires. But what if we told you there is something beyond these, something far greater than the world can ever offer? Interested?
Did you know that even the strongest Biblical heroes were tempted and had moments of failure? How is it that God desires to use us, even though we face temptations and at times, fall? Listen in to Christian Crusaders to learn how.
What do you do when you mess up in life? LetÂ’s take a look at an answer to that question in our message from St. John, an eyewitness to Christ.
What does a real Christian look like? Is it someone who is nice, doesn't swear, and goes to church every Sunday? What about the person who quotes Jesus a lot? Stay with us as we learn from the apostle John how to live a deeper walk with our Lord.
Are you lacking joy in your life? Not just momentary happiness, but true, lasting joy? If so, we have some great news for you - God's desire is for you to have a deeper joy than you've ever known. The apostle John wants us to know this and he reveals it to us in today's message. Please join us.
How do you respond when life treats you unfairly? How do you live when the people in your life are treating you unfairly or even putting your life in danger?
Do you know who is the Holy Spirit? Is He a force, the wind, or a mystical "thing" some people refer to? In today's message, we will talk about our "Helper" in a way you may not have heard before. Please join us.
Life can sometimes be hard. Sometimes we suffer. Sometimes we feel alone. But we have someone who wants nothing but the best for us Â– the eternally best for us. Join us as we look at a passage of Scripture that encourages us to take heart and place our trust in Jesus.
A great author of long ago wrote, Â“A friend is what the heart needs all the time.Â” How true it is! The human heart possesses a deep longing for friendship. We need someone who understands us, knows us through and through and likes us anyway. The good news for the day is you do! You really do! You have the best friend of all in Jesus Christ.
In all likelihood, you are probably familiar with these words from Scripture: Â“For surely I know the plans I have for you,Â” says the Lord, Â“plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope.Â” They are beautiful, comforting words, but we need to ask, What are they really all about? What is their meaning for us?
How do we hold on to hope? How do we rise above despair to be faithful to what God asks us to do? Discouragement is a part of life. It can consume our spirit and make us want to quit. LetÂ’s look at JeremiahÂ’s faith journey to learn that which will empower and inform our journey of faith today.
Life is like a bike tire. We don't intentionally take air out, it just leaves. And just as it's harder to peddle with flat tires, it's not as fun to live when the air has leaked out of our lives. Life has a way of deflating us. It is to the people who are feeling like flat tires that a sweet invitation comes today. "Come to me all who weary and are carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest."
How is your prayer life? Prayer is the language of faith and a privilege of intimacy with the Lord of the cosmos. God is in the business of erasing our naughty deeds and restoring us and transforming us. He does not want to leave us stuck in the same destructive patterns of our sin and shame, but desires to maximize our created best potential as His beloved children.
It is music to our ears when we hear someone say to us, I'm all-in! Jesus, also, wants to hear and see this all-in attitude from His followers. He calls us to "take our our cross" - deny ourselves - and follow Him, which requires a very high commitment on our part. Let's talk more about this cross we must bear and the benefits of doing so in our message.
