There have always been people who are puzzled by Jesus and not sure of what to make of Him. However, Jesus thinks of us as lost sheep and calls himself, "The Good Shepherd.” Let's learn more about what that means in our message, “I Know I Can Depend on Him."
The good news of the Easter message is the linchpin of our faith. The resurrection of Jesus from the grave fills us with the promise of eternal life with God and forgiveness as we repent of our sins and trust in Jesus Christ. But now that we have celebrated this major event, next comes the question, Where do we go from here?
The modern church tends to not make a big deal of the Ascension. But the truth is, it is a very big deal for those of us in the Christian faith. When understood, the Ascension becomes an irreplaceable, important resource for the living of our lives in this world. Join us as we consider three truths about this important event.
An expression we sometimes use is this idiom, "The bottom line,” which is someone's way of saying the underlying truth of it all. What would you say is the bottom line of the Christian faith? I suggest to you that it is these three words: CHRIST IS RISEN!
Song writers sing about it. World leaders promise it. Our hearts long for it. Peace. How do we attain peace in our world in the midst of chaos, killing, adversarial language, and animosity? What are the things that make for peace?

Do you think of paradise and marriage in the same idea? Someone said, Â“Marriage reminds me of the opening line of Charles Dickens novel Â– Â‘It was the best of times.

God has given us new life in the Holy Spirit who works to reshape and conform us to the image of His Son, Jesus Christ. We are considered adopted children of God. LetÂ’s talk about how living a transformed life in Jesus can change us in wonderful way we could never have imagined.
Have you ever found yourself saying, Â“I need to make some changes in my life.Â” IÂ’m just not very good at running my life on my own; no one is. We are sinners, and when we try to live life on our own terms, it can lead to disaster. WeÂ’re not very good at fixing it either as we use own willpower, our own strength.
Prayer is a gift given to us from our great God, a privilege. It means we can connect with the Creator of the universe, and it is an important part of our walk with Him. Let's look at an incredible New Testament story that reveals the power of prayer among believers in Christ.
Each of us needs prayer. We need to connect to Gods heart and believe we are loved, our lives matter, and we have a purpose. But we dont always know how to pray or what to say. We dont know who God is in order to talk with Him. No wonder the disciples came to Jesus and said, Lord, teach us to pray.
Making decisions is an important and often difficult part of life. We want guarantees. Christ's followers need to be good choosers when faced with doors of opportunity. Let's learn how to determine what is best so our love for God and one another might overflow.
