Legacy (1 Samuel 31)

    Have you ever given much thought to what will be said of you after you have left this earth? That might seem like a morbid thought, but maybe one worth having anyway. What will others say about the life you lived? What will they think about your choices and your actions toward others? What will …

Foxhole Desperation (1 Samuel 28)

 

    In 1942, U.S. military chaplain William Thomas Cummings, preached a sermon on the field during the Battle of Bataan. During this field sermon, it is said that chaplain Cummings first uttered the statement that, “There are no atheists in foxholes.” The phrase caught fire, and just 12 ye…

For Your Good (1 Samuel 19)

 

    Today’s passage will show us that things got much worse for David before they got better. Today, we’ll look at 1 Samuel 19 and the series of attempts that Saul made on David’s life. But that’s not what our focus will be on today. Instead, I want us to look at all the ways that God used…

What About Him/Her? (1 Samuel 18)

    Today’s message is one that I believe applies to each and every Christian at some point in their walk with the Lord. It’s an issue that is seen not only in the New Testament, but throughout the entire Bible, and if we’re wise, we’ll learn from the examples we’re given so we can grow into mat…

The Living God (1 Samuel 17)

 

    You know what I really like? I really like when you hear a song a dozen times and it’s a great song, but on the 13th listen, you connect with it in a deeper way that really speaks to you and you never listen to the song the same way again. Or a good book, that you can read several time…

The Lord is With Him (1 Samuel 16)

    This morning we’ll meet a person in the Bible who was a very important person; one of the most important in the Old Testament. His story and his writings take up a good portion of the Old Testament. His introduction here though, is humble in many ways, but even with his humble introduction, …

Co-Dependent (1 Samuel 15)

 

    There are few words that sum up the Western culture like the word independent. We like the idea of independence, don’t we? From the time we signed our nation’s declaration of independence, we have been drawn to the idea of independence. It’s what lured people out of the east and into t…

Take Your Stand (1 Samuel 12)

    Today we’ll look at the last public address Samuel makes. We’ve seen through the passages we’ve studied in 1 Samuel that at this point, Samuel is old and one of the factors in the people deciding they wanted a king was because of Samuel’s advanced age. The people knew he wouldn’t be able to …

Living Proof--1 Samuel 10 & 11

    I think we’re all probably familiar with the phrase, “actions speak louder than words,” right? I think the phrase is probably self-explanatory, but just in case, the idea is that what we do, says more about our beliefs and who we are, than what we say. What we say, must be backed by what we …

A Willing Heart--1 Samuel 9

    I don’t know about you, but from time to time I’ve been tempted to think that what God requires of me is perfection. Now, I’m not talking about Christian perfection, I’m not talking about heart holiness, I’m talking about worldly perfection. You know the thought, the one that says, “Okay, yo…

The Blessing of Choice--1 Samuel 7 & 8

    My kids haven’t been in school since March 6. The older two are done with the school year now, but their last in-person day was March 6. However, I still brought them down with me to the church building a few days a week so I could have some quiet time to study and pray and get things done t…

Redeemer--Ruth 3 & 4

Watch Here

    Today we’ll finish the book of Ruth. In my opinion, two weeks is not nearly enough to fully delve into the pages of Ruth, but since it is a small book and we’re just doing an overview, we do need to keep our pace up.
    As we go through Ruth 3 & 4, we’ll see that Ruth’s st…

It Just So Happened... (Ruth 1 & 2)

Watch Here

    Good morning and Happy Mother’s Day! I have to admit that as we’re leaving the book of Judges, I’m actually really glad to be moving out of the book of Judges. Now, because it’s part of the Bible, I see how God has used the book of Judges to help us work through some of what has be…

Our Own Worst Enemy (Judges 16)

Watch Here

    Today, we’ll be wrapping up the book of Judges with the saddest chapter in Samson’s story as a judge. Today, we’re going to talk more in depth about Samson’s own character flaws as a way to examine ourselves. We’re going to be in Judges 16 today.
    Judges 16 opens w…

Misusing God's Power (Judges 14 & 15)

Watch Here

    Today’s message is one that hits hard for me because of the direction that the Spirit took me when I was putting this together, something that He’s been working through me for over a year now.  It’s an idea that we see come up in Samson’s story, it’s the idea of the misuse of God’s…

Unfulfilled Purpose (Judges 13)

Watch Here

    This week, we return to the book of Judges. Because we’re doing an overview of Judges, we are skipping a few of the judges that were raised up by God to deliver the nation of Israel. We’re skipping the stories of Gideon, which spans Judges 6, 7, and 8. We’re skipping the stories of…

The Rending of the Veil (Matthew 27:45-51)

Watch Here

    It’s Sunday! We celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Christ, Jesus, this morning! I hope and have been praying that today is a day of jubilant celebration for us and for all believers. I know that many of us, myself included, are grieving the loss of being able to be …

Expect the Unexpected (Judges 4)

Watch Here

    This morning we’re going to go through one of my personal favorite stories in the Bible. I have to warn you, it is a violent story, but it’s also full of irony and dark humor, and an epic twist that’s worthy of the Lord of the Rings. We’re going to be in Judges 4, and we’re going t…
