This is the fourth and final week of our message series we call Does this Shock you? The first week of our series Jesus asked us point blank whether or not we are shocked by his revelation that Holy Communion is his Body and Blood and we are to consume it if we are to have eternal life with him. Holy Communion is communion with him. That’s what mak…
 
Welcome to the first week of our message series we call Does this Shock you.Sometimes the things Jesus says can be very challenging to the point that we have some sort of startled response mentally or even physically. We are shocked. In that scripture passage we just heard, Jesus asks his disciples, and us, point blank, does what I am saying shock …
 
If we feel some resistance to asking Jesus for help, what is holding us back? Is it our pride? Do we think we can do it on our own? Is it our fear? Will God ask something of me that I’m not ready to do? Are we worried about what other people will think? Or, do you believe that Jesus doesn’t care enough about you to work a miracle in your life? Sadl…
 
God loves you more than you know and wants to help paint the Masterpiece that is you. God is with you and helping you to paint the story of your life. You are his masterpiece. If we'd been conscious in those first moments of our life as a couple of microscopic cells, a microscopic human being, you may be sure we wouldn't have believed that someday …
 
John writes, “Children let us love not in word or speech but in deed and truth. Put love in action.” Love lives in our lives when we put it in action and serve other people. When we serve, our hearts are reassured of God’s love for us and because our hearts are reassured of God’s love for us, we have confidence in God and receive from him whatever …
 
Jesus was love in action. Whenever we meet Jesus in the gospel, we see love in action. He went about doing good and healing people, but the world could not handle 100 percent pure love and killed him. However, the grave could not keep him and love conquered death. In this message we will look at how the resurrection of Jesus shows that love lives o…
 
In the Gospel, Jesus heals on the Sabbath as a sign to show that his new teaching has authority and power. It stands as a direct contrast to the religious rules and ideas of the Pharisees who misunderstand the law. This event shows that Jesus has come to give fresh insight into God’s law and for the purpose of faith and religion. God has come to se…
 
We often understand defining moments in retrospect. An event happens in our lives and we don’t understand its importance until much later. In our readings today, this happens to both John and Samuel. At a certain point they were called into God’s much larger story through a defining moment. Their relationship with God becomes personal. Like Samuel …
 
Before Jesus enters into his public ministry, his heavenly Father orchestrates a defining moment so that he will know the love and delight of his heavenly Father. Jesus is in a crowd of people who are baptized, but once he is baptized, he hears the words, “This is my beloved Son with whom I am well pleased.” In this message we will look at how God …
 
In this week we will introduce the concept of the series of defining moments and how God uses them to draw us to him. The Magi had been looking at the stars their whole lives, when suddenly they had seen something they had not seen before. A rising star in the sky brought them to Jesus. God often breaks the pattern of our lives (breaks the script) …
 
Holy families don’t have to be perfect, but by caring for one another with heartfelt compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience, bearing with and forgiving one another, through prayer, sacrificial love and putting God first in all that we do, our families can become Holy families, and by our example, change the world for Christ.…
 
Perhaps the most famous line in all of Scripture Sums it up best: For God so loved the world he GAVE his only beloved Son. God loves, so God gives. We believe; we receive. It’s as simple as saying it in your heart and allowing it to begin to be reflected in your life. It’s as simple as the story of the shepherds. You remember how that story ends?…
 
Jesus came into the world to bring joy, and he invites his followers to do the same. Joy is crucial not just to Christmas but to the whole of the Christian life. If you cultivate joy in your heart, if you set your mind on it, it can heal any hurt, overcome any obstacle, provide remedy for any pain. Joy is the simplest and most complete form of grat…
 
The prophet Isaiah cries out for God’s presence. He asks God to come down and put things right in Israel. This is what God did at Christmas. He came and was present. In this message we will look at the importance of simply being present for others. God gives us the gift of himself. You too can give the gift of self, yourself. Your presence may be t…
 
In this week we will introduce the value of generosity and how we naturally are in a giving mood in the Christmas season. The Gospel of Matthew reminds us that when we give, especially to those in need physically or spiritually, we are really giving to Jesus. We give because it gives to Jesus and because Jesus promises a reward to people who are ge…
 
Sharing your faith helps you grow spiritually. It does this in 3 distinct ways. First, it helps you grow in love of God. Secondly, sharing your faith helps you grow in love of your neighbor. And, finally, sharing your faith grows your gratitude and enthusiasm for what God has done for you. Sharing your faith means working to bring the good news of …
 
Prayer is the most widely accepted spiritual practice of all. This one, we can all easily agree on. This practice is a universal one among people of any and every faith found in every time and place. Even people of no faith are known to turn to this practice, at least from time to time. If you want to grow spiritually and as a follower of Jesus Chr…
