Unanswered Prayer

“What good is unanswered prayer?” Much in every way, but the flesh never likes waiting. Could it be that the benefits of today’s waiting are far greater than tomorrow’s answered prayer?

Greatest Run-On Sentence Ever

“Paul’s a poor communicator!” some thought. “His letters are weighty… and his speech contemptible” (2 Corinthians 10:10). But his critics failed to recognize that TRUTH can be weighty and contemptible. Paul is the king of the run-on sentence, but he’s also the champion of Truth! Some believe this single run-on sentence is perhaps the greatest sentence ever written. Come find out why this Sunday as Pastor Tom continues through the Book of Romans.

Second Chances

Everyone makes mistakes; says something he shouldn’t or in anger, reacts and later regrets it. And everyone who calls himself a Christian practices forgiveness. We offer second chances, don’t we? We release wrongdoers from guilt and help redirect their lives with mercy and grace.

His Final Masterpiece

God is our Creator, Maker and Maintainer of both life and faith. As such, what is His final goal for us? According to Paul, it’s “being transformed into the same image...” So, what does that look like?

Redemption

The blind man… No one could have been worse off! He lived without sight, without family, community or mercy, and worst of all- He lived without HOPE. But then, Jesus came along and changed everything! So many people live blind, but redemption is only a decision away!

The Principal Thing

“Wisdom.” King David is quoted by Solomon, defining wisdom as, “the principal thing”, meaning, “Foundational, something by which all else rests steadfast; essential and absolutely necessary to help us navigate through life.

Crushed and Remade

“You are the Potter; I am the clay…”. These are the lyrics to a modern Christian song that speak of God as our Master Craftsman. As the clay, no one minds the Father remaking him, but before that can happen, clay has to be crushed… and no one likes that!

The Master Craftsman - An Introduction

Thirteenth-century Theologian, Thomas Aquinas, challenged himself with three questions: What is my purpose? How am I to succeed? Why was I born at this time in history? We are born not knowing the answers to these questions, but we are born to know our Creator. And the closer we are to God, the more we come to know the answers to all of life’s questions.

The More You Know

Serving God and People Through Prayer

One of the greatest missionaries, Paul, appeals to the church by Christ Himself and by the love they have because of the Holy Spirit to pray for him, that words may be given to him so that he will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel and also for his deliverance.

There is No Other Name

No other force in history can unify a disparate church like the supremely powerful Jesus Christ. Paul must lay a bedrock foundation In order for the rich theology to follow.

Called Forth

The Book of Romans was written during a pivotal moment in the Early Church. Only a miracle would save the Church from disappearing entirely. But Jesus said, “I will build My church and the gates of hell would not prevail against it.” Jesus is still building, right? And as it was in the Early Church, today Romans continues to be foundational for our personal faith, and further, for the advancement of the Body of Christ.
