Unchanging Rest | Unchanging

 How do we handle the stress and anxiety in our modern lives?  God had a great plan in the Old Testament called "Sabbath" but a lot of people think it's obsolete.  But Jesus is clear: the Sabbath still applies, and finding rest in God alone is still our only access to peaceful lives.

Jesus, The God If The Whole Bible | Unchanging

God reveals Himself in the entire Bible - His “I AM” answer to Moses is “I’m not like other gods - let me show you!”  And the whole of Scripture is God’s demonstration.  But many people see the Bible as the story of a bipolar God - wrath and law in the OT, grace in the NT.  But it has always been grace.

What’s Your Posture? God is Eager to Confide – His posture is open – with the person who offers himself or herself to Him. The thoughts, commands, and dreams of God’s heart are so precious that He’s not going to share them with a closed, distracted heart.

The God Who (Still) Speaks | Hearing God

The God Who (Still) Speaks | Hearing God

John 1 & Hebrews 4:12 By the way we live, we believe that God doesn’t speak any more. We are practical atheists. God wants to speak to us and He IS speaking to us. The Word IS ALIVE!!!

The Dream Redeemed

God of Sex

Sex is good and sex is powerful.  God created it and celebrates it, but it also needs to be contained, and work within bounds (vs. current culture’s last “ethic” of consent).  This 3 part series covers the basic Christian worldview about sex, and why it matters.

Unexpected

Jesus was never accused of being boring.  During His time on Earth people were often surprised at the way that He interacted with others.  Reflecting on the stories of Jesus' life can produce profound results in us.

Filled Up: Living Spiritually Full

Don’t settle for a mediocre Christian experience!  We can get stuck in our Christian activities with little dynamic of God’s presence in our lives.  God has much more in store for his people through the work and ministry of the Holy Spirit.  We were made for more.
