hebrews7.png

April 8, 2018

Hebrews 1:4-14

Jesus. Is. Better than the angels. The readers of Hebrews elevated angels to almost the same status of the Son of God. The writer of Hebrews is making the point that nothing in our lives should be elevated to Jesus' status. He is greater. He is better. 

hebrews7.png

April 1, 2018

Hebrews 1:1-4

Jesus. Is. Better. He is better than anything we could put in his place. Whether you are saved or not. We need Jesus.

EXODUS 34

Define the Relationship. God is defining His relationship with his people. They have failed him miserably.

EXODUS 33

I sinned, now what? Israel was about to find out. God was not going to go with them on their journey. But they desperately needed and wanted him. What can we learn from this?

Screen Shot 2017-08-31 at 11.33.18 AM.png

March 4, 2018

EXODUS 32

You might be an idolater if... The Israelites so quickly forgot how God redeemed them. They forgot the covenant that God had just created with and for them. We are so much like the Israelites. We do the same thing. We allow idols into our livers to take the rightful place of God. 

Screen Shot 2017-08-31 at 11.33.18 AM.png

FEBRUARY 25, 2018

EXODUS 25, 35

Gifts of Work and Rest. God has given each of us different gifts to benefit the church. Not ourselves. One of those gifts is rest. Rest is a gift that is so easily pushed aside and forgotten in our society today.

FEBRUARY 19, 2018

EXODUS 25, 30, 35, 36

FEBRUARY 11, 2018

EXODUS 28-29,39

Representing God to man and man to God. God cares about his people. He set up a priesthood for Israel. For us as New Testaments believers Jesus is our High Priest, and we are made priests if we believe. 

Screen Shot 2017-08-31 at 11.33.18 AM.png

FEBRUARY 4, 2018

EXODUS 25-38

Holy Company. God is detailed. And he gives Israel detailed information on building the tabernacle. But it is a beautiful picture for us as new testament believers. We have the Holy Spirit indwelling us.

Screen Shot 2017-08-31 at 11.33.18 AM.png

JANUARY 21, 2018

Exodus 20:22-23:19

Love God and love your neighbor. These are not just a list of rules. They are the covenant that God is building with His people. He had rescued his people and is now laying out a special covenant with them.

Screen Shot 2017-08-31 at 11.33.18 AM.png

JANUARY 14, 2018

Exodus 20:1-21

I should because I AM. The ten commandments are not just a list of don'ts. They are a vertical and horizontal relationship with God and others. 

Screen Shot 2017-08-31 at 11.33.18 AM.png

JANUARY 7, 2018

Exodus 19

Are you ready? God is asking us to consecrate ourselves. We need to lay aside every sin AND weight that is hindering us and weighing us down from from doing what God has called us to do.

Exodus 17:8-16

Israel's first big outward battle takes place in this passage. They encountered Amalek. And they find out that God is on their side. He protects them. He preserves them. He is their Banner.  

Screen Shot 2017-08-31 at 11.33.18 AM.png

DECember 10, 2017

Exodus 15:22-17:7

The wilderness is where God typically trains and grows his people. The Israelites found this out when they needed water and food. 

Screen Shot 2017-08-31 at 11.33.18 AM.png

DECember 3, 2017

Exodus 15:1-21

God commands us to sing. All throughout scripture. In this text we see an example from the people of Israel as they sing and worship God with the Song of Moses and seeing what God did for them. We should be compelled to sing and to worship our Savior as an appropriate response to what his Son did on the cross for us.

Screen Shot 2017-08-31 at 11.33.18 AM.png

November 26, 2017

EXODUS 13:1-16

OCTOBER 22, 2017

EXODUS 6:10-7:13

We are a broken people. We think we know best. We make our plans and dreams. But life causes detours and pit stops. Through it all, God's perfect purpose in our imperfect plan is displayed. 

Screen Shot 2017-08-31 at 11.33.18 AM.png

OCTOBER 15, 2017

EXODUS 5:1-6:9

It is easy for us to think that because we are obeying God and doing right, our lives should be easy. However, God does not promise us an easy life. In fact, He tells us the opposite. So we must look forward, go to the Source, and look at what God promises us.

Screen Shot 2017-08-31 at 11.33.18 AM.png

OCTOBER 8, 2017

EXODUS 4:1-31

In Exodus 4, God describes that He wants to do great things through Moses. Moses does not feel equipped or that he is capable.  But he decides to trust God's promises and to believe in him. Do you believe and trust that God is wanting to do great things through you?

Screen Shot 2017-08-31 at 11.33.18 AM.png

OCTOBER 1, 2017

EXODUS 3:1-22

In Exodus 3, God calls Moses to be the deliverer of Israel from their slavery in Egypt. Today, God is calling each of us to partner with him in his work of delivering all mankind from their slavery to sin. Will we accept the call? 

Screen Shot 2017-08-31 at 11.33.18 AM.png

SEPTEMBER 10, 2017

EXODUS 2:1-25

Who you ARE prepares you for what you do. We see this throughout Moses's life. His identity in God was preparing him to lead his people out of bondage. 

Screen Shot 2017-08-31 at 11.33.18 AM.png

September 5, 2017

Exodus 1:1-22

We can trust that God's promises are true. In Exodus 2 God was with the Israelites despite their time of oppression. God is with us today, as well. Apply this truth to your life and watch your perspective change.

PSALMS 73

God is good not matter the circumstances or what we see around us. Asaph struggled with this. And began to doubt God. But God used Asaph's doubt and pain to deepen his faith in God's goodness.

AUGUST 13, 2017

PSALMS 40

David was in a pit of despair. He cried out to God and God heard his cry. David waited patiently for God to pull him up out of the miry bog. And God came through like he always does. We can hope in God because God promises to hear our cries and to set our feet upon a rock. The key is waiting patiently for his timing. 

AUGUST 7, 2017

PSALMS 19

God is revealing himself to us each and every day. He is revealing himself in his WORKS and he is revealing himself in his WORD. And that revelation demands a response from us. How are you responding to God's revelation of his WORKS and WORD? 

JULY 31, 2017

PSALMS 32

This psalm is a challenge to us all. Confession is some times hard, but something that is so good for our souls. We should be striving to be right with God and right with others. 

Romans Main.png

july 2, 2017

ROMANS 15:14-33

Paul lived a life with a mission mindset. He paints a very clear and important picture of this type of mindset for the Roman believers. 

 
Romans Main.png

June 25,2017

ROMANS 15:1-13

The dynamics of the stronger and weaker brother that Paul describes in Romans is a much needed conversation that we must all have. Some times the stronger brother is called to "take one for the team."

Romans 14:14-23

Even though we have all freedom in Christ Jesus, that does not negate our responsibilities that we have as sons and daughters of Christ.
