Continue Steadfastly



Peter spoke to the crowd in Jerusalem that gathered to discover the meaning of the wind and fire. His message was that the Messiah whom they had crucified had risen from the dead (as promised by God) and now ascended to the right hand of the Father in triumph. Now was the time to repent and believe the testimony. Many chose to do just that, proclaiming their faith in the Messiah with baptism. But louder still was their changed life. Steadfastly, they continued to learn from the apostles and in fellowship with the believers. They ate together and prayed together.

When we sing



God created us to remember songs and wanted that trait to remind us of Him and His Word. And the songs we sing can teach our minds and enliven our hearts.  So let His Word dwell in you every day of the week with musical reminders for the glory of the One who created us, Jesus Christ.

God asks for relationship.



The teacher asked one question of the Greatest Teacher. What is the greatest commandment that God gave us? Jesus gives him two commands that go well beyond obedience. The commands are invitation to relationship with the Eternal Holy God Almighty. And in relationship with Him, God challenges us to join Him in His pursuit of love relationship with others.

I included more of the audio from the worship service just to give you a glimpse of our time on a Sunday morning.  I record the podcast through a microphone I wear, hence the reason you hear me better than those who pray or lead singing.  But we love all these parts of our worship service.

Forgiven by God to Know Him



“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom” (Proverbs 9:10).  But what does it mean to fear the LORD?   Yet the psalmist tells us in Psalm 130 that we are forgiven our sins in order that we would fear the LORD.  Perhaps we should reconsider our forgiveness in order to better know the LORD who forgives.

Importance of Weakness



We all face times when the world seems out of control and a dangerous place.  For many of us, the last couple months have seemed such a time.  But in those positions of weakness, as much as we hate them, embracing that weakness gives us opportunity to know God in a more intimate way.  Only then can we know as the psalmist that the LORD is our refuge and our strength.

Song of Giving Thanks



Regardless of how we may feel, the truth is unchangeable.  And God is unchangeable and always worthy of praise.  We always have reason to give thanks.  Psalm 100 helps us see why.   We belong to One who is always good and has everlasting mercy.

Psalm 100

Know the LORD now



Do you have some extra time on your hands or busier than ever?  Either way, now is the time to make this a priority.  Whatever else we may think is important, this should be at the top of the list.  Everything else is temporary.  Our relationship with the LORD should be our boast and joy.  Let’s keep making time for Him no matter what else is going on.

Wise unto Eternity



Jesus used a curious parable to teach a profound truth – we need to be prepared for the future.  The future often comes without warning.  And most important is the future in eternity.  Are we investing in eternity or only in today?  Listen in as we examine the different points that Christ makes from the story of the Unjust Steward.

Being with God in the Word



While the pastor was on vacation, Gabe Harris came and preached the word for us at Prairie Oaks.  We wanted to share the audio from His message on the importance of daily time with God through His Word.  Please give it a listen as he had many good points that our summary does not cover.
