It Ain’t Worth Dying Over

We heard Lon Solomon quoted the sad story of an unloved teenage girl who took her own life because she felt unloved. In the news we have heard of many people who kill themselves because of the economy or other tragic circumstances.

In the Powerhouse Sermon Never Give Up… Never Surrender, we discuss many of the ways that satan seeks to destroy us by making us want to destroy ourselves. We also discuss the scriptural solution to that situation. Over the next five weeks, we will feature some of the teachings from that audio series.

Are You a Spiritual Meanie?

Jesus said that the primary way to recognize Christians would be by their love for each other.  And yet, so many people who wear the title "Christian" are known for how mean and critical and spiteful and nasty they can be.

Jesus is Coming Back

The signs of the times continue to display… and the naysayers, pundits and scoffers continue to express doubt and disbelief.  But those in Christ are wise to heed the words recorded by Saint John:

10 "Because you kept my Word in passionate patience, I'll keep you safe in the time of testing that will be here soon, and all over the earth, every man, woman, and child put to the test.
11 "I'm on my way; I'll be there soon. Keep a tight grip on what you have so no one distracts you and steals your crown.
12 "I'll make each conqueror a pillar in the sanctuary of my God, a permanent position of honor. Then I'll write names on you, the pillars: the Name of my God, the Name of God's City—the new Jerusalem coming down out of Heaven—and my new Name.
Revelation 3:10-12 [MESSAGE]

Until He does return, we have work to do.  There are souls to be brought into the kingdom... people who are hungry who need to be fed... people who are homeless who need shelter... people who are hurting, lost and alone who need to fee the LOVE OF GOD expressed through us.

Are you ready to do your part?

  3. When Jesus said “Fret Not,” He wasn’t saying that you shouldn’t play the guitar...
