Rejoicing In Hope

by Pastor Timothy

“Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer.” Romans 12:12 These words in Romans are part of the believer’s response to all that God has done for him in Christ. The earlier chapters of Romans speak of the deep sinfulness of man, the abundant grace of God and the glory of God in […]

Motivated by Christ’s Love

by Pastor Timothy

2 Corinthians 5:14 “For the love of Christ constraineth us…” Philippians 1:21 “For to me to live is Christ and to die is gain.”   The love of Jesus Christ in giving Himself up to die to save His people from their sins is love unbounded, far and above what we can fathom. This loving […]

Better Than Gold And Honey

by Pastor Timothy

More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. Psalm 19:10 The context of this verse reveals that David was emphasizing the value and sweetness of God’s word. The Scriptures are much more valuable than wealth and possessions. That is easy to believe intellectually, but […]

Run, That Ye May Obtain

by Pastor Timothy

A few weeks ago, I preached from 1 Corinthians 9:24, “Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.” We noted how the Isthmian Games (similar to the Olympics) were held in Corinth. Paul used this very familiar analogy to call […]

Watching Jesus Pray

by Pastor Timothy

I am thankful that we were able to at least have some connection with each other yesterday through the live stream sermon. Let me just remind us of some of the points from that message “Watching Jesus Pray“. Jesus prayed! If God incarnate desired and felt the need to pray, how much more should we […]

Look At Me in the Eye!

by admin

I have been slowly reading through Edward Welch’s A Small Book for the Anxious Heart. So far, I have been challenged and blessed. Welch rightly emphasizes that looking to Scripture as a means of combatting sinful anxiety and fear is one of our greatest sources of hope and strength. However, he also admits that sometimes […]

Help for Abounding Hope

by Pastor Timothy

“Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.” Romans 15:13 The first 13 verses of Romans supply believers in Christ with great grounds for hope. True hope is part of the Christian’s DNA. Yet, it can […]
