Falling Into Place

This week we will be looking at Luke 1:5-25, the account of Zechariah and Elizabeth and the birth of their son, John. So many things needed to fall into place in preparation for the coming of the Messiah. God carefully arranged the timing, the people, and the world for His entrance. God’s plans can never […]

The Sound of Silence

This week we will continue to prepare our hearts for the coming of the Christ Child. After Malachi wrote down the final word of the last Old Testament book, God went silent for 400 years. Most people are not very comfortable with an extended period of silence. We are used to noise, action and sound-bites […]

Return Thanks

In this account, Jesus healed ten lepers, but only one returned to say “thank you.” The only difference between the nine and the one who returned was that the one chose not to forget what Jesus had done for him. The secret of […]

He had stresses with work and family. He was a less-than-ideal husband and struggled to stay consistent in his walk with the […]

Babble at Babel

This week we will be continuing in our series, “Faith Confirming Accounts: Building Confidence From God’s Truth” by looking at Genesis 11. The Great Flood may have cleansed the earth, but people’s hearts were still bent toward rebellion and sin. The generations after the Flood did not spread out as God commanded. Instead, they settled […]

Cleansing Power

This week we will continue in our series “Faith Confirming Accounts: Building Confidence From God’s Truth”. Never again will there be a global flood like the one described in Genesis 7. The rain came for 40 days and 40 nights, but the waters continued to flood the earth for five more months. We’ve seen first-hand […]
