This fall we are going to focus our preaching attention on the Psalms and when I think about Jesus' earthly life the writer to the Hebrews said this about Jesus, "For we do not hav...

Can I know God Personally?

Can I know God Personally_

Can I know God Personally? A few weeks ago, we ended the Explore God series with the last question being, can I know God personally? While there is no doubt that only way we can have a relationship and know God personally is through the work of Jesus Christ (2 Cor. 5:19-21), I continued to reflect on the question, seeking to go deeper in my understanding. Some of the tho...

Riding in the car with my sister-in-law I commented that she must miss how small he used to be and wished that time could slow down for a while. Her answer surprised me: "No. I try to be content n...

A revival is twofold, first, in the sense that a revival happens when a large group of people is transformed by the power of the gospel and second, a revival happens when Christians take...
