When God says He'll do something, He keeps His word. Our confidence comes not only from believing in God, but believing what He says. This means we can have confidence that when we ask for something, His answer is always, "Yes."
If we were responsible for developing the strength and perseverance needed to overcome the challenges of this life, we would be in despair. In this message, we find out that God is in the business of making dramatic changes in each and every believer, which equips us to answer experience and exercise perfect love.
We don't need the world and it's temptations to attack our faith; we do a pretty good job of it ourselves. In this message we discover that self-condemnation is the biggest enemy our confidence faces and what we can do about it.
Steady as you God
One of the biggest hurdles we face is that obstacles to confident living keep on coming. In this message, we look at three roadblocks to our faith and find out why consistency is key to our confidence.
Running Out of Time
The clock is ticking on all of us. Every year that passes by means we are all one year closer to seeing God face-to-face. The book of 1 John was written to prepare its readers for that very moment.
Love over Limits
Through Jesus, God sent a Jewish Messiah to a Jewish people to proclaim salvation for the entire world. Since His love extends to all, so should ours.
Presence over Presents
The paradox of the Christmas season is that we are so concerned with getting presents that we often have a hard time being present. What if we made a conscious decision to spend less, but be more sensitive to what we give and why?
Generosity over Gratification
The wise men instinctively knew that giving is one major way we worship. Like them, God gives us opportunities and reasons to give. Unlike them, we do not have a “baby Jesus” to give to. In this message, we find out that giving to “the least of these” is how we give to Jesus.
