“Men loved the darkness instead of light.” What a word. It’s not that men haven’t seen the light. They have. They chose the dark. The proof’s in the pudding: “their deeds were evil.” More than just choosing darkness, men actively hate the light. They hate the light because it ruins their lives. “Everyone…

One could make a case that this thief, whom tradition names Dismas, needs to get his eyes checked. Maybe we could blame it on the crucifixion. After all, he’s nailed to a tree. He’s been hanging for a while. He may not be in his right mind. If he was, he wouldn’t seek help from the guy nailed next to…
Jesus was our propitiation to appease the wrath of God. But, He was also our expiation to make amends for our wrong doing and remove our guilt. He was the atoning sacrifice.

Jesus is the Good Shepherd of those in His Kingdom. He ensures we have all we need, every moment, to do and be and think and say what He wants. He is the ruler of all the Earth and there is nothing that is hard for Him. He is able to help any who come to Him. Jesus rescues sinners. Many believe they have established there own righteousness but those who know they are sick are readily rescued by the Good Shepherd, Jesus. He justifies the ungodly. While he is able to and does variously heal physical illness or touble, we look forward to the fullness of His Kingdom, when all sorrow, sickness, death, and pain will pass away and we will be made new! Isn't He wonderful!??!!!?!?!!
Many people think Jesus was a super nice guy who went around teaching people, “Be nice to everybody, just like me” – gentle Jesus, meek and mild, or so the saying goes.

Jacob, the deceiver, became by the power and grace of God, Israel the patriarch. As patriarch, he had a keen insight into the lives of his sons. What kinds of blessings did Israel/Jacob pronounce over them? Jacob/Israel also pronounced some "disqualifying curses" upon some of his sons for the way they lived their lives. What were those curses? How can those blessings and curses impact our lives even today? Join the Grace United crew as we take one last look at the life of Jacob, listening to his blessings--and curses, upon his sons.

Pastor Glenn • Grace United Family Church • Sermon • • 11 views • 42:20
Three great words to live by: rest, remember, honor. These words are part and parcel of the 4th and 5th words God gave Moses that he might teach Israel how to really live. But "this is Old Testament! Can anything good come from studying THAT?" Come with the Grace United crew as we experience the 4th and 5th words of the Decalogue, a.k.a: the 10 Commandments.
