Please join Pastor Mark Blowers as he brings us God’s word from Genesis chapter 32.
God keeps his promises. Always. Pastor Mark Blowers takes us through the story of Abraham and Sarah to show us this truth but to also draw distinction between God and man. Even when we’re unsure, God is steady and keeps his promises. Always.
Please join Pastor Nick Orduna as he walks us through the Old Testament.
“Biblical faith is not a vague hope grounded in imaginary, wishful thinking. Instead, faith is a settled confidence that something in the future—something that is not yet seen but has been promised by God—will actually come to pass because God will bring it about. Thus biblical faith is not blind trust in the face of contrary evidence, not an unknowable “leap in the dark”; rather, biblical faith is a confident trust in the eternal God who is all-powerful, infinitely wise, eternally trustworthy—the God who has revealed himself in his word and in the person of Jesus Christ, whose promises have proven true from generation to generation, and who will “never leave nor forsake” his own.”
The Sermon on the Mount is justly deemed one of the greatest sermons ever given, if not the greatest of all time. This sermon is inspirational and gives us a world to aspire to. But there is more to it than that as it makes us think about why the world we live in is not the way it could be.
Do Christians struggle to celebrate spiritual wins? Have we earned the name the “frozen chosen”? Esther 9 shows us to not only celebrate birthdays, graduations and other life moments but to find joy to celebrate our spiritual successes.
Life is full of events in our past that we use to learn from and that we can celebrate. It’s important to celebrate. Not just because it’s fun but because it’s important to celebrate for otherwise we forget. This is one of the driving lessons of Esther 9.
God’s design for the family leads us to see a husband and a father in loving unity with his wife and his childrens’ mother. We are ever in need of more godly fathers who will take the lead. While it’s certainly true that more men need to step up and pursue Christ and lead their homes, ladies your role in this is critical. Pastor Dustin looks at the important role wives play in tending the garden of the family.
The book of Esther has reminded us life can at times seem bleak and hopeless and yet God doesn’t fail or fall down on his promises. Esther 8 and 9 calls back to Esther 3 to show us how God ultimately wins. Every time.
As the climax of Esther’s story happens, Haman is about to receive justice for his plan to annihilate the Jewish nation. But pay special attention to the real story. Not about a man who ultimately was found out for who he was, but for how God time and again provides dramatic reversals for how we think the future will unfold.
