  • The Piercing Question
    Do you love Me? —John 21:17Peter’s response to this piercing question is considerably different from the bold defiance he exhibited only a few days before when he declared, “Even if I have to die with You, I will not deny You!” (Matthew 26:35; also see Matthew 26:33-34). Our natural individuality, or our natural self, boldly speaks…
  • Preaching Jesus with Our Songs
    Great music-makers, in their own way, are like evangelists. They witness to the truth and goodness and transcendental beauty of God. Renowned composer Hans Zimmer (who wrote the scores to Dark Knight and Inception, among others) responded to sound critics who felt his music in Interstellar overpowered multiple moments of the film and oftentimes prevented […]
  • Seeing What David Saw (Part 1 of 2)
    David and Goliath. A shepherd kid versus an intimidating warrior. The story holds relevant lessons for us, not in defeating our giants, but in recognizing that God is the real victor. Listen this weekend for a fresh perspective on a well-known story on Truth For Life with Alistair Begg.!

God's way is best...

From the desk of the pastor:

Romans 11:33-“Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!” ESV

In our day and age there are many programs that promote an answer to your problem or the things that you struggle with by following these “three easy steps”. It appears that given enough time there could be a formula for everything and maybe these formulas would work if everyone were the same.

This same ideology has crept into the church as well. What areas in the church can we simplify into a neat little program or formula? In light of this I want you to seriously contemplate the words of Paul in Romans 11. God is infinitely deep in His knowledge and wisdom while man is shallow and clouded by his own pride.

God cannot be placed into a box or a lamp like a genie. God knows each one of us better then we know ourselves and has the exact thing that we need to live the Christian life to its fullness, yet we fight Him at every turn. We need to quit fighting God and trust Him because His ways are unsearchable and inscrutable. May we this day surrender some area in our lives to God because then we will gain the real victory, a custom fit way!
