Our Privileged Position

A Good Time To Be Alive

On Sunday Pastor Dustin preached from 1 Peter 1:10-12. We are often tempted to wish for a different life. But we occupy a privileged position in God’s plan of salvation. We know what prophets longed to know. We experience what angels wish they could experience. We enjoy a clear view of the glorious grace of God displayed through the saving work of His Son.

What Does It Mean To Be Human?

We need to recover the glory of humanity.

On Sunday Pastor Dustin preached the creation of Eve from Genesis 2:18-25. He reminded us that the glory of humanity is that we were made in God’s image, male and female, for His glory. We are the same, yet different. The union of a man and a woman in marriage beautifully displays both our sameness and our difference. And marriage points to something beyond marriage, something you don’t need to be married to experience: the love of Jesus for His bride, the church.

When God Answers You

He Is The Answer

On Sunday Pastor Mike preached the first of God’s responses to Job from Job 38:1-40:5. God dignifies us by responding to our many questions, confusions, and groanings. But He responds in a way we never expected. He doesn’t answer our questions. Instead, He offers a panoramic view of Himself. And that is precisely what we need.

Am I Suffering Because Of My Sin?

THE EASY ANSWER IS OFTEN THE WRONG ONE

On Sunday Pastor Dustin preached from Job 4:1-9 beginning three weeks covering the speeches of Job’s friends. He reminded us that sin is not always the direct cause of suffering. Often times, God’s purposes in suffering are mysterious. Many people suffer innocently in His world. Job did. Jesus did. And we will too.

The End Of Everything

Worship

On Sunday Pastor Eric finished off the book of Romans preaching the doxology at the very end, Romans 16:25-27. He reminded us that Romans is designed to turn us into worshipers. Not scholars. Not intellectuals. Not good citizens. But worshipers. Our thoughts about God must turn into heartfelt love and adoration of God. That’s what the book of Romans has done for us.

Unoriginal Christians

Our Lives Relentlessly Point to Christ

On Sunday church intern Dylan Sohie preached from 1 Corinthians 11:1. He reminded us that the Christian life is a life of imitation. Originality is overrated. We want our lives to inspire others to love and serve Jesus.

We Are Under Attack

Romans 16:17-24

On Sunday, Pastor Eric reminded us that our greatest enemies are those we fail to recognize. We are influenced by what we listen to, what we sing, and what we read. Are those things Christian or are we being subtly led astray by our enemy? We need to be discerning. Discernment is a crucial skill in order for us to more fully live in the good of the gospel.
