Looking to Jesus- Heb 12:1-2

What a good way to prepare for Christian Communion? Pastor Mike directed our attention to Hebrews 12, verses 1-2.

Forgetting and Pressing Forward- Phil 3:1-14

January is often full of ‘Resolutions’, except they don’t usually ‘stick’.  St Paul has a suggestion for us- as Pastor Mike explains: Forget the past; instead, focus your attention and energy on that God has for you in the future.

Forgetting and Pressing Forward

Once is Enough- Heb 10

Why did God become human? This question has been asked over the centries, and Pastor Mike brings our attention to the fact that God became human ‘only once’, because once was enough.  God was able to successfully accomplish what he came to do in that single event.

Once is Enough

Don’t be One of the Nine- Luke 17:11-19

Now just how much “good” needs to happen to you for you to recognize AND do something to express your thankfulness?  In today’s sermon Pastor Mike focused on the one unlikely person who recognized just what an amazing event had happened, and who expressed this gratefulness to the Man who caused it.

Don’t be One of the Nine

Trust in the Lord – Is 30:1-3,15-18

Where do you find your security and safety? We often try to find it in our 401K, or insurance, or that relationship.  We should be looking to the Lord our God.  Isaiah the profit preaches on the same topic, and Pastor Mike helps that message to us today.

Trust in the Lord

Moving Forward – Joshua 1:1-7

You cannot take advantage of “better things” if you stay in the present, or even worse, on the past; or where you have been. God called Joshua to lead his people forward, across the river, into the land of giants; and without doing so, they would not have experienced the success and victories that God had planned for them.  Pastor Mike suggested that the same is true of us today.

Moving Forward

Do Not Lose Heart- 2 Cor 4:5-18

St Paul encouraged the believers in Corinth and he encourages us today to “Keep the Faith”; Do not lose heart!

Do Not Lose Heart

Our Emmaus Road- Luke 24:13-35

It is one week after Easter. But in Pastor Mike’s sermon, he recounts the story of two Jesus followers on the road from Jerusalem to Emmaus that first Easter Sunday. We don’t know for sure, but even these who had walked with Jesus failed to recognize him as he joined their Journey. But when he did reveal himself to them, they were lit up and unstoppable.

What is your Emmaus journey like?
