To Undivide The Heart

Bible Text: 1 Samuel 15:1-31 | Preacher: Pastor Daniel Roels Saul is Israel’s first king and he is God’s appointed guardian to keep the people in right relationship with God. The trouble is that Saul’s heart is divided about this. Following God might be unpopular! So Saul disobeys God to please the people, but loses the Kingdom. Is your heart undivided in obedience to God? Or do you prefer excuses, circumstances, and peer pressure? The “Lent” season has started, and it’s time for heart-examination and for God to undivide our divided hearts.

End Times? Keep the Faith in Jesus

Bible Text: 2 Thessalonians 2 | Preacher: Pastor Daniel Roels Thinking of the “end times” and trying to clearly interpret Biblical prophecy and vision about them often raises our anxiety. In 2 Thessalonians 2, there is talk of rebellion and lawlessness and a restrainer, but it is very difficult to be sure who is who and what is when. How can we rest if we don’t have the answers?! The same way Christians have always been told to rest: keep the faith in Jesus.

Beautiful Things Out of Shame

Bible Text: Joshua 2 | Preacher: Pastor Daniel Roels It’s one thing to learn from our mistakes or come to accept and peace that God can use our mistakes. But what about those mistakes that follow us, cling to us, and come to define us? What about those sins that root shame deep in us? Today, we’ll hear two stories of shamed women who have become part of God’s plan. The third story is up to you – will you let God’s grace redeem your shame?

Real Relationships in This Virtual Video Age

Bible Text: Acts 17:16 | Preacher: Rev. Robert Price We welcome Pastor Robert Price to the pulpit:  Our electronic culture is moving away from face-to-face oral tradition toward a virtual, visual culture that emphasizes sight. Young people sit next to each other and text to communicate. Sound is not important in text world. We have many Facebook friends, but few real friends that know the sound of our voices. “All the lonely people, where do they all come from?” 

Faith and Grace – (Continued)

Bible Text: Exodus 14:5-14, 16:1-4 | Preacher: Pastor Daniel Roels | Series: Exodus Series By grace we’re saved, through faith. And once we’re on the right side, does it still come down to grace and faith? Or do we handle sin only with judgment, finding it hard to forgive ourselves and others? God’s grace is still required. Or do we get angry with God when life doesn’t come together the way we want? Faith in Him is still required. That’s because getting rescued from bondage to sin is a beginning, not an arrival. There is a long journey ahead.
