GET INVOLVED By Paul David Tripp

• July 12, 2016

The past two weeks I’ve written to you about living as a light in your neighborhood. I shared my concern that we don’t get out of “the Christian Ghetto” enough, and even when we do, we neglect to see people as people. This is what I want to share with you today: We’re called to […]

FEAR NOT! By Pastor Scott Henry

• July 12, 2016

“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me” (Psalm 23:4). “Fear not” is a phrase found at least 63 times throughout the Scriptures.  God said to Abraham in Genesis 15:1, “Fear not.”  The […]

JOYFUL WORSHIP By Pastor Scott Henry

“Make a joyful shout to the LORD, all you lands!  Serve the LORD with gladness; come before His presence with singing.  Know that the LORD, He is God; it is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.  Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, […]

“WORDS THAT CHANGE FAMILIES” By Dr. Paul David Tripp

• June 7, 2016

The first word that’s essential to building a grace-based family is SURRENDER. When I first asked Luella to marry me, I didn’t have a clue about what it meant to surrender. As I look back on the early years of marriage, much of our struggles could have been avoided if I knew how to surrender. […]

“LOVE ONE ANOTHER” By Pastor Scott Henry

• June 7, 2016

“He who does not love does not know God, for God is love” (1 John 4:8). Throughout the book of 1 John the apostle is very concerned to exhort Christians to love one another — not just in word, but in action.  And John has emphasized this in many different ways throughout his first epistle.  […]

WE’RE CALLED TO MAKE DISCIPLES, NOT SIMPLY CONVERTS By Dr. RC Sproul

• April 30, 2016

We should take notice of what Jesus did not say in the Great Commission. He did not say, “Go therefore and make converts of as many people as possible.” All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the […]

TRUSTING GOD By Pastor Scott Henry

• April 30, 2016

“Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers him out of them all” (Psalm 34:19). When the psalmist speaks of afflictions he is not just referring to those that are physical, but also spiritual affliction.  Many are the spiritual afflictions of God’s people as we walk by faith in this godless world.  […]

IT’S OUT OF YOUR CONTROL By Paul David Tripp

• March 26, 2016

We’re nearing the end of March, a month dedicated to Five Words That Change Families. We’ve looked at Surrender, Purpose and Discipline, and today’s word is essential to the previous three: PATIENCE. Surrendering our desires to the Lord won’t come naturally to us, nor to our spouse. Pursuing God’s purpose won’t be a simple call […]

WHY DID THEY HATE JESUS? By Pastor Kevin DeYoung

• March 26, 2016

It is sometimes said that Jesus was killed on account of his inclusion and tolerance, that the Jews hated him for hanging out with sinners and tax collectors. This is the sort of sentiment which has a bit of truth to it, but only a tiny bit. No doubt, Jesus upset many of the Jewish […]

GOOD FRIDAY By Pastor Scott Henry

• March 26, 2016

Good Friday is a day when believers remember the suffering and death of our Lord Jesus Christ.  It’s a day we remember how Christ became a curse on the cross (Gal. 3:13) for all those given to Him by the Father (John 6:37) in order that through His atoning work they might receive the blessing […]
