Message: The First Step is the Hardest (Luke 15:11-32)

Sermon on the Parable of the Lost Son

Special Music by Kaylee McCray and Jamie Isaacs

Is is possible to know God and yet be far away from Him? Are you like the prodigal son in the “far country?” Where is the “far country”, you ask? The far country isn’t very far away, it’s one step outside of God’s will. Sin leads to more sin, and you will reap what you sow (Galatians 6:7).

God loves you enough to let you go, and God loves you enough to welcome you back home. God is calling you home. The first step is the hardest.

Message: Christmas 365

Special Music: solo by David Woodward

Would you like to have Christmas all year round? If so, the first step is to become a Christian. Until Jesus becomes your Savior, you’re missing the point of Christmas. Have you ever made a decision in your life to follow Jesus? John 8:32 tells us “the truth will set you free.” The truth is that we are all sinners and we all need Jesus.

As Christians, we can celebrate Christmas 365 days a year by:

  1. Proclaiming (spreading) the good news of Jesus – Luke 2:172)
  2. Wondering – being filled with holy wonder/amazement – Luke 2:18
  3. Pondering on what Jesus has done and wants to do for us – Luke 2:19
  4. Glorifying and praising God – Luke 2:20

Are you a Christian? Have you ever chosen to follow Jesus? You can today!

Blessings,

Message: The Secret to a Thankful Heart

After Jesus heals 10 lepers, only one returns to thank Him. What is the secret to a thankful heart? it is the conscious choice not to forget to thank Jesus for what He has done for you. Who are you more like? The nine? Or the one? Let’s be like the one!

15 One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice. 16 He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him—and he was a Samaritan.

17 Jesus asked, “Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine? 18 Has no one returned to give praise to God except this foreigner?” 19 Then he said to him, “Rise and go; your faith has made you well.”

Luke 17:15-19 NIV

Message: The Jesus Journey (Luke 5:1-11)

It’s extremely important to know God’s will for our personal lives. In God’s will we find purpose, meaning, and fulfillment. Remember these truths: 1) God never gives a foolish command, 2) God intends to bless those who obey, and 3) God’s greatest miracles usually require our cooperation. 

God’s will is always good. Don’t be afraid to follow Jesus. You’ll never regret it. Are you ready to follow where He leads? If you’ve never trusted Christ to salvation, He is inviting you today.

Blessings,
