    Nehemiah: Standing in the Gap
    Nehemiah's character is what sets him aside as a hero of the Old Testament.  He was the kind of man God could use.  You too can have the same characteristics of Nehemiah if your life has the same three characteristics of Nehemiah.

    Joshua: Courage to Move On
    This is the first in our Spring series entitled "Heroes of the Old Testament".  Over the next couple of months we are going to look at various individual men and women found in the OT and I intend to show that even though we often times see the triumphs of these people, they were not perfect.  They were people like you and me with struggles and failings that allowed themselves to be used by God.  This week we focused on Joshua, a man in a difficult crisis in his life and how he had the courage to move on.

    After a week off due to poor weather, we started a new series this Sunday entitled "Into Action".  We are looking at the action packed book of Mark and learning what it means for us to get "into the action".  Because God calls his people not to be spectators on the sidelines or consumers on TV, but out in the field in action.   And the three lessons learned in this sermon help us start to get into the action.

    God as Judge
    HELL IS REAL!  And with the Hat of Judge, God unfortunately will sentence many people to this second death in the lake of fire.  And while God has many other Hats (this series has already looked as Creator, King, Revealer, and Priest), this too is a Biblical characteristic of God.  Because of who God is, He cannot (and will not) allow into Heaven those who are guilty of breaking His laws.  But there is good news.  Listen to the sermon to hear how God made a way for the guilty to be justified.

    Oct 21, 2018
    God as Priest
    God is Holy, Holy, Holy.  And as such He has the characteristics of a Priest.  And with this image of God when He wears His Priest Hat, we see that we to can be holy, but only through the sacrificial death of Jesus on the cross.  Then we to can be a part of the priesthood, showing people about God.

    God our Personal Revealer
    God is not a God that made the world and then left us on our own.  God is not a distant King who rules from afar.  God wants to have a personal relationship with you.  This is the hat of God we looked at in the worship service this week.  A God who has revealed himself in the Bible and in the person Jesus Christ.
