Forgiveness

Lisa Wadding shares a powerful message on forgiveness and the freedom that comes when we learn how to truly forgive others and ourselves.

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…

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…
