• John 3:16-17
    "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him."
  • Lessons in Leadership, Part 1 August 31, 2015
    While all Christians are under the leadership of Christ, God has appointed certain men to be responsible for leading local churches. It's a job that deserves honor and respect, but comes with inherent danger. We'll look at Lessons In Leadership, on Truth For Life with Alistair Begg.
  • The Humility and Exaltation of Christ August 31, 2015
    It’s as perplexing as it is awe-inspiring . . . as astonishing as it is dumfounding. I’m talking about the amazing paradox that Jesus is fully God . . . yet humbled himself to become fully man.

    Do you feel like all you are doing is just drawing your breath and drawing your salary? God’s plan is to take ordinary people and put them in ordinary places with ordinary jobs and get extraordinary glory to Himself. Now that's an important job!

Draw near…

From the desk of the pastor:

James 4:8-“Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.” ESV

Do you desire to foster a more intimate relationship with God? Is the extent of your commitment like what is mentioned in…Isaiah 29:13-“And the Lord said: ‘Because this people draw near with their mouth and honor me with their lips, while their hearts are far from me, and their fear of me is a commandment taught by men,’”

Has your relationship with God dwindled to the point of being mere rote repetition leaving you unfulfilled? Do you feel like you are in a wasteland with nothing to feed your spiritual soul? Do you desire the heart of Paul as he said in…Philippians 3:10-“that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death,”

God desires for us to draw nearer to Him. He does not force us to tap into His limitless source of power and refreshment but waits patiently for us to come to Him. We are the ones who are holding onto sin, which keeps us from seizing this promise. May God grant us the ability to cleanse our hands and purify our hearts through the only One who can perform these transformations…‘draw near to God, and He will draw near to you!’
