Be Caring

Be Caring

This week is on 2 Samuel 9. In King David’s relationship with Mephibosheth we see David caring when Mephibosheth, Jonathon’s son, had nothing to give him in return. Kindness goes to those undeserving; caring for others is about fulfilling our promises to God to show a life of gratitude, even if there is a possibility of a threat. By Pastor Paul Sausser

Be Soft

Be Soft

This week is on Mark 5:21-24, 35-43. We might think of a soft person as being mild or meek, but definitely not a leader, but it is—Jesus is gentle of heart. So am I thoughtful, calm, and considerate in my dealings with others? Do I treat people like fine china? By Pastor Paul Sausser

A New Day

A New Day

Mark 1:1-13 Jesus’ first advent was to form a new humanity, a redeemed people. While we want the “niceness” of Christmas to last, this Nativity account shows the reality of the fierce challenges and evil’s opposition that face Jesus’ mission. Our Savior has overcome it all, and through His Spirit in us, He enlists us to join in bringing His redemption to the world. Key Verse: John said, “I...

Christmas Day

Christmas Day

Micah 5:1-6 God has sent our Savior and Shepherd to be born in Bethlehem. The promise of His coming is given at a time full of problems and heart aches. Yet, His coming is the light that not only pushed back the spiritual darkness when He was born in Bethlehem, His light pushes back the hurt, brokenness, and pain we have today. Key Verse: But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among...

The Great Reversal (Isaiah 61:1-4, 8-11)

Uncomforting Comfort (Isaiah 40:1-11)

Advent, Week 2 God’s comfort for dealing with what is wrong in life comes when we acknowledge that our own sin has contributed to our misery.

Rend the Heavens and Come Down (Isaiah 64:1-9)

Rend the Heavens and Come Down (Isaiah 64:1-9)

Advent, Week 1 The prophet pleads for God to reveal Himself in power to the nations. But the judgment of God asked for, Isaiah sees, is needed just as much for God’s people. We all need God's grace, and when we seek His grace, He changes us like a potter changes clay. Key Verse: Since ancient times no one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any God besides you, who acts on behalf of...
