The story of the complaining Israelites in the wilderness teach us many lessons. God gives us salvation and freedom, but often, God’s people are impatient and complain. God disciplines us in order to bless us. When we repent and look to Jesus, He saves us.There will always be something to complain about. It’s ok to complain to God, but not against God. There is a great...

God sent His perfect love in Jesus, His Son. God's love seeks to dig deep within our souls, He unearths those fears, and casts them out. Like Peter, when Jesus tries to wash our feet, we often fail to trust Him and receive His love. We have a choice - to face our fears or not. Face your fears and fully accept the free gift of God

Jesus begins his ministry with a proclamation of incredible grace. His early sermon even harkens back to the Old Testament practice of the year of Jubilee. This incredible lavish love of God is now here and available - a declaration Jesus began, that his followers are to continue. There are 3 practical ways we can continue to live out this lavish love.

We witness at every stage of our spiritual growth, but we evangelize more effectively as we mature in Christ. Fishing for lost souls looks like accepting the rejected, supporting the struggling and comforting the hurting, the example Jesus sets.

Topic: Process of Spiritual Growth
The life of John the Baptist expressed how Christ can be reflected powerfully in our lives by being unconventional, uncompromising, bold and truly humble. So John sums up God’s work in verse 30: “He must increase and I must decrease.” He must. This is the plan of God. The Son of God, the bridegroom, will be exalted. He will be glorified. He will increase in the eyes of man....

How could younger people be more spiritual than their elders? The next generation sees God and the world more clearly than we do. Electronic Arts and Hollywood know their core beliefs. We should too. Take a look at the books, movies and video games that captivate them. Divergent series, Maze Runner, Ender's Game, Hunger Games populate teen fiction/movies. Marvel...

God directed you to this sermon, I believe, so that you would know, first, that you don't have to die, and, second, so that you would know that Jesus, who makes this promise to you, is God, the God of Israel, the God of all. And, third, you are here because God wants you to see the implication for your life of knowing you will not die. By John Piper. ©2013 Desiring God...

The simple message of the cross is a stumbling block to nonbelievers. The formula for a divine transaction is found in Romans 4: faith plus nothing equals the righteousness of God. What God simplifies, man complicates.
