Coming Back Again

Being lost can be a horrible feeling. On the best of days, being lost can be frustrating because of the wasted time in trying to figure out where you are and how to get where you need to be. On the worst of days, being lost can create fear and danger if you are lost in the wrong place. When you are lost, you need direction from someone who knows and can tell you how to get where you want to be. That's why God has given the Bible and spiritual leaders to his church: to guide us and help us find our way back to God.

Using God

Songwriter Leonard Cohen wrote a song entitled "Hallelujah" that began with the words "I've heard there was a secret chord That David played, and it pleased the Lord." That sums the spiritual pursuit of many people. They believe that there is a secret chord, a secret something somewhere that pleases God. And that secret something becomes the means by which can we manipulate God to do our bidding. Israel tried it and it turned out very badly for them because God is not a God to be used. Listen to this message from 1 Samuel 4 about the ark of God and how the presence of the will not substitute for the presence of God.

From Sorrow to Joy

The pains of life can be overwhelming. Life in a broken world means that sorrow will come. It will lead us to cry out to God in anguish. Sometimes, God in his providence will lead us from sorrow to joy. And sometimes he won't. In either case he is still God. In this message we see how Hannah, the mother of Samuel, experiences the providence of God in turning her sorrow to joy and we examine how we learn from this to live in a broken world.

All for Christ and It Is Well - The Life and Death of James Chalmers

The message of salvation in Jesus Christ has been taken around the world by devoted followers of Jesus Christ who were convinced that people needed to hear the good news of salvation in order to be forgiven of their sins, given eternal life, and spared from eternal punishment. Followers of Jesus called missionaries did this at great cost to themselves and their family. But for them, it was worth. Their attitude was "All of Christ and It is Well." James Chalmers was one such missionary who spent his life among cannibalistic tribes telling them of new life in Jesus. Listen to this short biographical message about James Chalmers and consider your own commitment to Christ and the gospel.

Grace at Work in Our Disgusting Sins

“I can’t believe I did that.” Or “I can’t be he did that” (or she). Many people feel the weight of guilt and shame over things that they did that they can’t believe. They feel the hopelessness of brokenness in their own lives and relationships. They feel lost and abandoned by God. They wonder if there is any grace for them. Of course, some people never get to this point. They sin without ever realizing how bad it is. They live blindly in much need of grace without even knowing it. The good news of Grace at Work is that there is always more grace. As God has said in his word, “Where sin increases, grace increases much more.” From the work of grace in confronting us in our sin all the way to the work of grace in restoring our soul, grace comes when and where we need it most. It doesn’t always look like we think it should, but it meets us at our greatest point of need and draws us back to God. Today we see grace at work in the life of someone who did something disgusting to most people. He made it worse by adding more sins to it. He paid a heavy price for it. But grace was still at work because of God. This grace from an old story reminds us of a much needed daily lesson—that grace works even in our disgusting sins.
