Tell God Thank You!

The Apostle Paul describes Jesus as the “Indescribable Gift” that God has given to the world. God offered this “Indescribable Gift” to the world over 2k years ago and he still offers the gift of Salvation by grace through faith alone to everyone who will believe and receive Him today. What are you doing with the “Gift” that God has offered you? Have you received it? If you have, are you offering it to others? Christmas is a great time to invite…

Containing Complaining

“Do everything without complaining and arguing, so that no one can criticize you. Live clean, innocent lives as children of God, shining like bright lights in a world full of crooked and perverse people.” (Philippians 2:14-15) A man who decided to join a monastery and become a monk had to take vow of silence. But at the end of each year, he was allowed to appear before the abbot and say two words. After being silent for an entire year, he finally…

Some of you have had a tough year. You may have received more than your fair your share of criticism. You may have lost a job. You may be going through a rough patch in a relationship.

Resisting the Devil

Although we may forget it at times, this one thing is true – this world is a battlefield. Every day we’re engaged in a spiritual war with an enemy who is invisible but real. His desire is to defeat us and to accomplish that he will deceive, destroy and accuse. Our enemy doesn’t wait for us to be ready before he attacks. The devil couldn’t care less if we “feel” prepared, or prayed up for our day. In fact, he prefers we’re…

The Accuser

Ever wonder why so many Christians hang on to the guilt of their sin even though they know about God’s total forgive­ness? The reason is that there is someone who does not want us to be free and his name is Satan. He would much rather see Christians walking in a cloud of shame than living in God’s amazing grace. Not only is Satan called the father of lies, he is also called the accuser. His job description is to make us…

The Problem With Pride

Every conflict that you go through in a relationship has an element of pride mixed into it. What is the middle letter of the word “pride”? I. What’s the middle letter of the word “crime”? I. What’s the middle letter of the word “sin”? I. We have an “I” problem! “I” want what, “I” want, and “I” want it now, and that causes all kinds of problems. Pride is a problem because pride is the root of every other sin. In Proverbs…

Do Not Be Deceived

Lots of people have questions about the Bible, but do you know what the first question is that’s recorded in the Bible? It’s the question that the serpent asked Eve in Genesis 3:1 when he asked, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?” In one short phrase — “Did God really say” — Satan casts just enough doubt to get Eve’s attention. He goes on to tell her that not only will she live, she’s…

The Devil Made Me Do It!

Have you ever heard someone say, “The devil made me do it”? That statement is a lie. The devil can’t make you do anything if you’re a Christian because you have the power of Jesus Christ and the Word of God to help you do right when you’re tempted. This weekend we’ll begin a new teaching series in which we’ll be looking at the one that that Bible identifies as the tempter, accuser, destroyer and deceiver. If you were to ask me…
