Glory to Glory

The glory of God. The Bible speaks of God’s glory quite often.  In fact, when Isaiah is taken into the throne room of God, he records that there were seraphim flying above him and crying out to one another: Isaiah 6:3 “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty;     the whole earth is full of his glory.” The whole earth is full of God’s glory.  There isn’t a single moment of our lives where we have lived in the complete…

Beautifully Broken

Recently, our family encountered something that all of us do at some point in life; we encountered a series of unfortunate events.  One of those events was the breakdown of our main car, our Acadia.  It was ran low on oil about a year beforehand and the engine finally decided to blow.  I mean, rod through the side of the engine, dump all of the oil at once, travelling from 60 to 0 in a few seconds, fill the car…

Plant: In Season

Have you ever read through the life of Jesus and ran into a situation where Jesus didn’t seem to be acting very Christ-like?  But He is the Christ, so everything that He does is Christ-like?  And He is sinless, so nothing that He did was sinful, but if you saw and heard someone do or say what He said or did you would say that they were sinning? There’s a few instances where I’ve been challenged in that way.  For…

Plant: Rooted

This morning, I believe that God wants to start off by reminding us that we were create by Him on purpose and for a purpose.  As long as we draw another breath, we have the opportunity to seek out that purpose and to fulfill it.  We get to cooperate with God; to hear His voice and to follow His lead as He equips, empowers, and does the impossible through us. How often do we unfortunately settle for far less?  How…

Where Are You?

In the beginning, God created mankind with the desire to literally walk with us, live with us, and to be in relationship with us.  God never intended for us to live the life that He gave us without Him.  Even after we sinned against God, God pursued us in our sinful state. Genesis 3:8-10 8 Then Adam and his wife, Eve, heard the sound of the Lord God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the…

Plant: Life from Death

This morning, we continue our message series entitled, “Plant” where we are challenging ourselves to be more intentional about the Biblical life principle that we reap what we sow; we harvest what we plant.  We want to plant the things of God both into our lives and into those around us.  We want to allow Him to develop and grow good roots within us which produce good fruits. Galatians 6:7 Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man…

Plant: Words

This morning, we continue our message series entitled, “Plant” where we are challenging ourselves to be more intentional about the Biblical life principle that we reap what we sow; we harvest what we plant.  We want to plant the things of God both into our lives and into those around us.  We want to allow Him to develop and grow good roots within us which produce good fruits. Galatians 6:7 Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man…

Plant: Generosity

Last week, we prepared to enter into the new year with a new message series about the Biblical life principle that we reap what we sow, we harvest what we plant, we are what we think.  We were challenged to plant the things of God into our lives and allow Him to develop good roots within us which produce good fruits. Galatians 6:7 Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Of course, we…

Plant

With the New Year coming up this week, most of us are contemplating things to cut out of our lives.  Less junk food, less social media, less smoking, less drama, less debt, etc. This morning, I feel that God wants to challenge us to think about this differently.  What if instead of considering what to cut out of our lives, we consider what we should add to our lives? There is something psychological about us that makes it difficult to…

Merry & Bright (Cont.)

This morning, we’re once again going to go back to that day when Jesus was born.  I believe that this morning, God desires for us to better understand what makes this season “Merry & Bright.”  When God became flesh and dwelt among us as a baby, it was certainly a time of great joy.  When Jesus was born, a great light entered the world that brought hope. In today’s world, we need to keep in mind this same hope that…
