“What is Our Purpose in Life?” Matthew 22:34-40

by

And that is what Jesus came to show us and teach us: how to love. Jesus’ very birth and life on earth was out of God’s love for the world. Jesus, who didn’t label which people deserved love and which didn’t, but welcomed, healed, and served all. Jesus, who out of such wondrous love for God and for us, gave his life on the cross, so we could all know God’s love which neither death nor life can separate us from. Everything Jesus did was to show us how beautiful love truly is. He wanted us to know that we are loved and he wanted us to pass that love on.

“Make Your Name Great” – Genesis 12:1-9

by

We are all called – not necessarily to pulpit ministry, but we are all called by God to go out into the world and be God’s hands and feet. We are called to bring change, to help others in crisis, to be a shelter in times of hurricanes, to be a present in the time of storms, to stand strong knowing that no matter where we are called to go or what we are called to do, God will be present still. Our call might not bring immediate fulfillment. Our call might be difficult and undesirable. But if we trust in the promise of God we know that our call is worth all of that.

“Lighting Up The Ordinary” Matthew 13:33-35

by

Our message for today is to see Christ’s kingdom in our everyday items and moments and lives. And knowing that they too are a part of God’s kingdom. This is the way of Jesus Christ. It’s not always glamorous or glitzy. But it’s full of love, it’s full of grace, it’s full of the holy breaking through.

“Should We Fear the Lord?” Psalm 111:1-10

by

But God is always good. God uses yirah not to turn us away, but to draw us near and change us from the inside out. The Fear of the Lord does not mean to hide from God as if God is some evil tyrant ready to attack and destroy. It means instead to get ready, because you are about to see something extraordinary and your life will never be the same.
