Mother’s Day

Today, we celebrate moms! Whether a biological mother or spiritual mother or both, we are so blessed to have you as a part of our church family.  Today, we want to honor and celebrate you! The 24/7/365, life-long responsibility of raising children is no easy task.  As many mothers here can testify, motherhood definitely does not stop when they reach the age of 18. For your many sleepless nights, disciplines enforced, tears shed, prayers prayed, failures, successes, and everything in…

Unstoppable

Last week, we learned how to walk in the Spirit from the real-life example of Jesus as He was doubted, questioned, challenged, and even hated.  When we remain filled with the Holy Spirit, the greater One dwelling within us leaves no room for the enemy to trip us up.  He can’t get a foothold or a stronghold or an any hold in our lives if we were just able to stay filled with the Holy Spirit. We are unstoppable! Paul…

Full House

Last week, we celebrated the resurrection of Jesus.  He is alive!  Nothing could keep Him down!  Nothing could trip Him up!  Nothing can stop the Kingdom of God, the will of God, nor the purposes of God!  That means that if you choose to put your faith in Jesus and receive new life, you also are unstoppable!  How do we make the most of this new life that Jesus gave us?  How do we know if we are living it…

Resurrection Sunday

John wrote:Revelation 1:10-1810 On the Lord’s Day I was in the Spirit, and I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet…12 I turned around to see the voice that was speaking to me. And when I turned I saw…someone like a son of man, dressed in a robe reaching down to his feet and with a golden sash around his chest. 14 The hair on his head was white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes…

Anointing: Character

Last week, Lisa provided an amazing message about forgiveness and especially the need for us to forgive ourselves.  If you missed it, you will definitely want to go online to watch it or listen to it. This week, we’re continuing to learn a bit more about God’s anointing.  This morning is Palm Sunday.  Today, we recall the day when Jesus fulfilled the prophecy from Zechariah as He enters Jerusalem on the colt of a donkey; signifying that He was a…

Anointing

Last week, we learned about and experienced a bit of the glory of God.  This morning, we turn to the anointing of God.  Whereas the glory of God is ambiguous and our experiences vary when encountering it, the anointing of God comes with an intentional purpose to accomplish. The anointing of God as seen in both the Old and New Covenants equips and empowers people to accomplish the will of God and His purposes for their lives.  The anointing of…

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…
