|7/22/2012||Seek My Face
In the aftermath of Israel’s idolatry with the golden calf God refused to go with them any further. When Moses stepped in to intercede God relented, promising his presence and revealing his glory.
|The Lessons God Teaches While Tabernacling||The Rev. Dr. John W. Yates III|
|6/17/2012||Keep the Commands of God
Like all wise fathers, God taught his children right and wrong. The Ten Commandments are God's grace gift: they teach us how to love God back, how to represent God to the nations, and teach us our need for Christ.
|The Lessons God Teaches While Tabernacling||The Rev. Dr. John W. Yates II|
|6/10/2012||Grace for the Journey - Rules for the Road
What are the Ten Commandments for? Just to obey a demanding God? No, they show us how to live in grace - the grace God gave the Israelites by bringing them to Himself out of Egypt on eagles' wings. The Law is a mirror that shows us our hearts and a path for us to walk on.

|5/27/2012||A Now and Forever Faith for Beleaguered Believers
How can believers find "blessed assurance" when every circumstance mocks them with trials and troubles? St. Paul's climactic message in "the Great Eighth" (Romans 8) not only affirms the assurance of faith but also reveals the Gospel paradoxical power that transforms our troubles and sanctifies our sorrows. This is truly a "theology of suffering" that everyone needs to embrace.
|Hope in Christ||The Rev. Dr. Michael A. Milton, Ph. D.|
Don’t believe something about yourself that Jesus refuses to say. Many Christians struggle unnecessarily with feelings of self-condemnation for their ongoing failure to live up to God’s standards. Romans 8 gives us great hope that we can move past self-condemnation into an assurance of our healing for this love and help.
|Hope in Christ||The Rev. Dr. John W. Yates II|
|2/12/2011||The Holy Spirit and You
"The Kingdom of God" is The Age of the Spirit. In this age God pours out His Spirit on the elect and comes to dwell in their hearts in the Person of the Holy Spirit. No one is saved apart from the regeneration of the Holy Spirit. Similarly, the process of sanctification is all about learning to walk in the Spirit, submitting more and more of your life to the Spirit. The key question is not “how much of the Holy Spirit do you have?,” but “how much of you does the Holy Spirit have?” One implication of being filled with the Spirit is worship!
|The Holy Spirit||The Rev. Wright Wall|
|1/22/2011||Proclaiming Jesus as You Go
We live in an age where God is expanding His kingdom one person at a time. Jesus chooses to use us to expand His kingdom by our actions and with our words. Three things to do to effectively tell others about the gospel of heaven: (1) Make time in your life to hang around with people that don’t know Jesus. (2) Think through your testimony and what your life was like before you met Christ, how you met Christ and what’s your life like since you met Christ. (3) Learn a simple illustration to explain the good news of the gospel of the kingdom of heaven.
