“Where Is Your Faith?”

Ok, so we have been in a big series, that started all the way back in the beginning of the year and is coming to an end right here around Easter, and I think it has been absolutely awesome.  We’ve been looking at the things that really block us from this life and life to the full that Jesus came to provide us…you know the life I’ve been describing as a life with freedom, victory, and power.  It’s . . .

The Dangers of Pride and The Rewards of Humility

Today we continue this series looking at one of the biggest, and sneakiest forms of spiritual kryptonite out there.  I know right? Another big one!  We will also look at the counter to it, which is also pretty interesting because it is often misunderstood.  This is a big one because today we are talking about pride and humility and I want you to know right on the front end.  Pride is difficult to deal with, because…if you deal . . .

The Way Through

So today, we continue this I Am Second series looking at Brian Welch, who was a musician in the band Korn.  I’m excited because as I watched his story I realized even though he is a famous rock star, with fame, and fortune, and all that comes with that rock star life, he also deals with a lot of what you and I deal with.  When I watch his testimony I see that Brian is in the whirlwind of life, . . .

Sometimes Pain Comes In Handy

Where Does It Go From Here?

So today is the big conclusion to our summer series, and I have to tell you…I’m sad to see it go.  I just feel like what we have studied and walked through all summer long is such a big deal.  I have been thinking and dreaming a lot of a day where we literally live out this life that Jesus lays out for us in Matthew 5, 6, and 7.  Behind the scenes Ken and I keep talking . . .

Words to Live By…Or Not.

Well it’s hard to believe but we have made our way to the last few moments of this amazing teaching from Jesus here and today we are going to see how Jesus wraps this whole thing up and in these last few verses we will once again see the big theme unfolding.  The theme has been Jesus laying out the type of life that a disciple should live…which would mean that these words that Jesus is preaching are . . .

The Shift Is The Key – Ask, Seek, Knock, and The Promise.

So we have been rolling along through this big summer series where we have been looking at Jesus’ famous teaching, “The Sermon on the Mount.”  This is such a big deal for us as disciples of Christ, to listen to Jesus teach us how to actually live as His disciples and then actually to go and apply these words to our lives.  I think we would all agree that living out these words of Jesus is challenging, but . . .

What Are You Missing Out On?

So we have been rolling along through our big summer series studying one of the most profound and popular sermons ever preached…Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount.  I have to tell you this series has been such a big deal to me in my own personal life.  I have been amazed at how as we study God’s word just how much it applies directly into my everyday life.  Whether it’s how I respond to people, or as I walk . . .

Being You In Every Environment

So we have been working our way through this Emotionally Healthy Relationships series, which has been such an important thing for us discuss as we build into and start our church here in Gettysburg.  There are couple things that I believe all Christians really need to wrap their minds around when it comes to relationships.  The first thing is that you actually were designed to be with people by God.  I know, I know for some of us (and I would . . .
