From fake designer handbags to the new term of “fake news”, we find ourselves in a world where little around us seems real. And yet Christ, not only accepts us with our flaws, but he makes us real in the process.
From before the world began, God has already made your life beautiful in its time. If your health, your family, your financial situation, or anything else in your life is not beautiful yet, give God time. He is still working on it. This inspiring and revealing message will teach you how to practically give God time to change things for the better in your life. Following these Biblical principles will increase your expectation of seeing God's goodness in your life every day, and will help you more clearly see how He is making your life more beautiful in its time.
Too often we try to do this life alone, but when we do we miss many beautiful moments. Yet, God wants us to know that He has something truly wonderful for each of us. And to experience this He invites us to follow alongside Him, to live and work together as His family, and to be a close-knit community who puts Him first.
Great relationships are built on trust. What does it really mean to trust God? How do you practically trust Him when you are going through difficult times? You may be going through a bad day, a tough time, or a midnight hour, but God has already fashioned a better life for you, even before you were born! God desires a relationship with you based on trust. Regardless of what you are going through, you can learn to trust God that He will cause all things to work together for your good. This practical and eye-opening teaching will reveal to you what it really means to trust God, and how you can grow in your ability to trust Him, and glorify Him, no matter what!
The whole Bible is a Love Story between God and you. Your responsibility as a believer is to discover the story God has written about you.

This encouraging and practical teaching will show you how to live your life with pleasure, enjoyment, and peace. You can look forward to living your life every day with a positive expectation that God is making your life better and better, and is going to do you good in the end!
When you are hurt by the words, actions, or the neglect of others, that is rejection. Rejection is at the root of all negative emotions.

This inspiring and empowering teaching will set you free from the negative emotions that come from feeling rejected, and will show you how to embrace God's radical acceptance of you, engage in a transparent relationship with Him, enjoy the radical new you, and expect radical freedom!
Jesus was born in the most humble of circumstances. Not merely because it was in a manger, but because God wanted us to know that He understands. There was no room for Jesus in the inn. Do you have room for Him in your heart? Special music by Gary and Dori Drabek; Charlotte Focht and the Wilsons
Shepherds were ulikely recipients of news of Birth of Messiah. God rewarded their work, their wonder, their welcome, and their worship.
The question, “Surely not them, Lord?” is the thought challenged in this passage. Peter and those who were following Jesus were largely from a Jewish background and although Jesus had told his disciples that they would ‘make disciples of all nations’ (Matthew 28:19), and they hadn’t realised that making them Jewish converts would not even factor into that equation. So a major shift in thinking was needed. Through God’s help we can put aside our bias and tell the gospel to everyone, for God’s good news is for all people and God’s salvation is for all who put their trust in the Lord Jesus, who died on the cross for sinners like me and you and even 'them'.
