    Why do wicked people prosper, when often bad things happen to good people? In this message, we take a look at a Psalm from Asaph the worship leader. He deals with this very issue and takes us on his journey from believer, to doubter, to wrestler, to one who gets past his pain and is able to worship God. If you are in a place of doubt, God is able to listen to your frustration and take you to a place of victory as well.

    Psalm 1 – Delight in God’s ways
    Series: Psalms
    Psalm 1:1-6 and Psalm 2:10-12
     
    The first two psalms can serve as an introduction to all five books that make up Psalms. Psalm 1 provides the Lord's instruction in wisdom and Psalm 2 introduces God's rule over a rebellious world. Both provide a foreshadowing for the need and refuge we can find in the future Messiah, Jesus Christ.  "A godly person is influenced not by unrighteous people, but by their meditation on the Word of God." Doing so will provide both joy for our life and allow you to be fruitful for the Lord.

    Faith and Hope Conclusion – Persevere!
    Hebrews 12:1-3 and Jude 24
     
    All of Hebrews 11 is pointing us to a challenge found in the beginning of Hebrews chapter 12. We can run the race God has marked out for us by looking to those who have gone before us, taking a look at ourselves and fixing our eyes on Jesus. How well are you running the race? What one thing might God be asking you to do, so you can run more completely for him?

    Mark 4:13-20, Luke 24:1-9 and 22-47
     
    He is alive and because he lives, we can have life too. In this Easter message we look at how Jesus points to the Old Testament after his resurrection and discuss what it means to have our eyes opened to the truth of Scripture. What is the condition of your heart, and what step might God be asking you to take to deepen your faith with him?

    Apr 9, 2017
    Faith and Hope Part 9 – Rahab
    Hebrews 11:31, Joshua 2 and 6, Matthew 1:5 and Romans 5:1-5
     
    Rahab being saved by faith can be seen as a foreshadowing of how we too can be spared from the justice we deserve (because of our sin) through faith in Jesus' death and resurrection.

    Faith and Hope Part 8 – Jericho
    Hebrews 11:30, Joshua 6:1-5 and Matthew 19:26
     
    The story of Jericho reminds us that God is with us when we face our walls in life. More importantly it is a reminder that because of Christ our victory has already been won. With that knowledge, we too can persevere!

    God often encourages us through others. How can we position ourselves to be the person He uses to encourage those who need it most? (1) Lean in to God, (2) lean in to others, and (3) lean in to opportunities. Let God use you to encourage others, he will encourage you in the process!

    Faith and Hope Part 4 – Noah
    Hebrews 11:7, Genesis 6 and 7:16, Proverbs 4:23, II Peter 3:9 and 13-15
     
    God spoke, and Noah obeyed - despite the craziness of the request. God still speaks today, will we choose to obey so He can work?  Just like now was called to build a boat to save his family from the flood; today we are called to build the church to save the lost from the punishment we all deserve. God is being patient so we can live in a way that helps others to come to Him.

    Genesis 1:1, Colossians 1:15-18, Hebrews 11:1-4, Genesis 4:1-10, I John 3:11-19, Hebrews 12:24
     
    In part 2 of this series, we see that the Creator of the Universe is the One we place our faith in and we explore the first of many Old Testament examples of faith. Abel gave his best to God and we too can leave a legacy of faith by doing the same. Abel reveals that faith is an external step of obedience, based on our internal hope and relationship with God. 
     
    Not captured in this recording is our introduction with the children's church group. We asked -  if they found a large bouncy ball in the corn field north of church if they would think 1) someone put it there or 2) it grew there on its own. They all agreed that it would be obvious that someone made it and put it there. The same is true with our universe, it has a creator and we have been created by him for a purpose.

    Faith and Hope
    As we launch into a new series looking at Faith and Hope from the 11th chapter of Hebrews, we used this introductory message to provide us with context. The Hebrews were tempted to turn away from their new found faith in Christ because of the persecution they were facing. The Author encourages them to press on and live by faith. 
     
    In the middle of this weeks message we also utilized Hebrews 10:1-14 as a way to prepare our hearts for communion. A beautiful song, sung by Jane Eiker and Samantha Rose Brody, can be heard as our church family spends time examining our hearts before remembering Christ's sacrifice together.

    Be The Church Part 4 – Serve Others
    Series: Be The Light
    John 21
     
    The account of Peter's public restoration provides a template for our own ministry. To serve Christ we must yield to His will (not rely on our own ability), love Him (by using our gifts to love others), and follow Him wherever He leads us (and keep on following him).
