The God Who Sees Us

September 1st, 2020 by

In my mind, one of the most moving descriptions in Scripture of the character of God is provided by Hagar, the Egyptian slave of Sarah. Hagar had been so mistreated by Sarah and Abraham that she fled into the wilderness. It was there, in her despair and fear and anger, that God found her and Keep reading…

Remember To Remember

June 1st, 2020 by

The book of Deuteronomy is a record of the final words of Moses to the people of Israel. For forty years he had led them, first out of Egypt, then through the desert, and finally to the border of the promised land. But Moses’ leadership was about to come to an end, and the people Keep reading…

Certainty In Uncertain Days

April 1st, 2020 by

Certainty is in short supply these days. Over the past several weeks, most of our lives have been turned upside down in ways we could not have imagined. Most of the things we took for granted a few weeks ago, we have discovered, can no longer be depended on. Instead, we have learned just how Keep reading…

Are The Commandments Still Relevant?

March 1st, 2020 by

In his letter to the Romans, the Apostle Paul compared two ways of being made right, or justified before God: Law and Faith. Those who sought to be justified by Law believed that by keeping the commandments, they could make themselves acceptable to God. This, Paul said, is not possible because no one can ever Keep reading…

Christmas Greetings from Pastor Jon

November 27th, 2019 by

In 1864, Emily Elliott penned the words to a hymn that has since become dear to many, especially at Christmas time: “Thou didst leave Thy throne and Thy kingly crown when though camest to earth for me…Thou camest, O Lord, with the living word that should set they people free; But with mocking scorn and Keep reading…

Our Father

November 1st, 2019 by

Luke tells us that one of the requests the disciples made of Jesus was that he would teach them to pray. In his response, Jesus taught them to address God as “Father.” This would probably have seemed strange to the disciples, as it was an unusual way for a Jewish person to address God. In Keep reading…

Labor Pains

August 1st, 2019 by

There’s an awful lot of groaning going on in Romans 8:22-26! Paul says that all of creation has been groaning, as if in the pains of childbirth (v. 22). We who are believers are also groaning, as we eagerly await our redemption (v. 23); and even the Holy Spirit groans as he intercedes before the Keep reading…

What Does It Mean To Grieve Or Quench The Holy Spirit?

May 1st, 2019 by

In his letter to the Ephesians, the Apostle Paul instructs us not to “grieve” the Holy Spirit (Eph. 4:30) and again in Thessalonians, that we not “quench” the Spirit (1 Thess. 5:20). These commands are related to Paul’s instruction regarding an important role of the Holy Spirit in our lives as believers, which is to Keep reading…

In his conversation with the Samaritan woman at Jacob’s well, Jesus made a bold claim that has echoed through the centuries; an invitation to every human being. He said, “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. Keep reading…

What Constitutes Marriage? Can A Couple Be Married Without A Marriage License?

January 1st, 2019 by

At its heart, marriage is a sacred institution established by God. Genesis 2 describes the creation of the first man and woman, culminating in the first marriage (Gen. 2:24-25). It is significant that, when creating the woman, God chose not to form her from the dust of the ground, as he had when creating Adam Keep reading…

Christmas Greeting From Pastor Jon

December 1st, 2018 by

When Luke described the ministry of John the Baptist, he characterized his ministry with a quote from the prophet Isaiah: “A voice of one calling in the desert, ‘Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him’” (Lk. 3:4). Much like those in the ancient world who were sent out before a king Keep reading…

Why Is Belief In The Virgin Birth Of Jesus Important?

December 1st, 2018 by

The vast majority of the information Scripture provides us about Mary is in connection with the birth of Jesus. Besides the Christ child himself, Mary is the central figure in the nativity story. It was to Mary that the angel Gabriel appeared, announcing that, though she was a virgin, she would give birth to a Keep reading…

The cat’s interest in our back door has been the subject of numerous conversations Keep reading…

God created each of us with an individual identity and, as individuals, we are not only valuable to God, but he knows us intimately. In Psalm 139, as just one example, David marveled at the intimacy of God’s knowledge of him as an individual. Scripture also teaches that God created us to live in community Keep reading…

What Is Apostasy?

June 7th, 2018 by

Apostasy is to turn away from, or forsake Christ. In Matthew 24:10-12, Jesus warned that many who initially followed him would ultimately fall away from their faith. The Apostle Paul gave a similar warning, saying that there would be a “falling away” or “rebellion” (Gk. apostasia) from among God’s people before the end of the Keep reading…

Why Are There Two Different Creation Accounts In Genesis?

February 7th, 2018 by

There are many different perspectives regarding how we should understand the relationship between Genesis 1 and 2. Often the discussion centers around questions about apparent contradictions between them, the historical accuracy of the text, or whether they were written by a single author or two or more authors. These questions, in turn, are part of Keep reading…

How Can I Know God’s Will?

January 7th, 2018 by

When I was child listening to Christians talk about God’s will, I got the impression that it was a set map for our lives which must be discovered and followed or negative consequences would follow. The way to know God’s will was to see the signs. A verse during devotions or a coincidence that could Keep reading…

But hope Keep reading…
