God has not rejected his people even though they have rejected him. There remains hope for their future even though they currently do not have faith in Christ, and all they need do to realize that hope is to put their faith in Jesus, for God has mercy on all who call on him.

There is Hope in Jesus in the midst of an pandemic. The word of God gives us clear messaging on the impact of suffering, the absense of hope, and hope restored in the life of a believer. Its not Over because God of Hope is real.
Theme: Jonah prays to God from inside the fish. His prayer gives us a guide for how to practice every day confession, how to repent and how to talk to God in the dark. God hears us no matter how deep we go into the dark seas. Jonah points us to Jesus, the greater Jonah; he shows us that God’s mercy is always deeper so that we never have to go there. We have a new life because Jesus gave his own life for us.
Scripture: Hebrews 4:14-16, Jesus the Great High Priest The practical benefit for us in having Jesus as our Great High Priest in Heaven is that Jesus gets it! Jesus knows our weaknesses. Jesus knows our needs. And Jesus totally gets it. Jesus says to us, come on up to the throne of grace and receive all the mercy and grace that you need. In gratitude for the mercy and grace that is ours, we hold firmly to our faith in Jesus and, like Jesus, we extend mercy and grace to others.
Enduring Suffering In my experience, there are times when I read the bible that my heart will be drawn to particular characters more than others. It usually correlates with what season of life God has brought me. When life is difficult, like many of you, I am often drawn to Job. Job was a righteous man…

ME: I came to the Lord gradually as I was raised in a Lutheran home. I was active in the church youth group, I was baptized as a child and confirmed in the adolescents. I knew in my head that God loved me and I was forgiven of sin. I could dwell with Him in eternal life. This understanding was only magnified…
Rev. Buford Edwards II • Sermon • • 5 views
The birth of Jesus and his coming is so signficant that we cannot understand what it means to us now and in the future. The fact remains that Jesus came and Jesus is coming again and bringing hope with him.
The people of God are to be a people of gratitude. We’ve recognised that what God does for us is undeserved, that God has seen us from afar and brought us near. In a society of entitlement we are reminded that He deserves our praise and thanks.
In Luke 18, Jesus tells a parable to a group of people who "trusted in themselves that they were righteous" and in speaking to them, He also speaks powerfully to us. The contrast between the religious, self-reliance of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector underscore how God looks at the heart, not just our actions. Those who are sinners, and know they are sinners, find mercy and grace when the come to God in humility.
Luke 7 contains a favorite passage for many Christians. The story of the sinful woman who interrupts dinner with Jesus at a Pharisee's home in order to honor & worship Jesus because of her faith in Him is a moving picture for a Christian to observe. Pastor Isaiah unpacks this beautiful story and calls us to respond to Christ like this woman and to find in Him the extraordinary grace and mercy which Hs gives to sinners.
Titus - Hope & godliness, how the church waits for Jesus to come
The hope of the world is a healthy church. Mercy and grace equip us to be good citizens because they humble us. Mercy and grace direct the church by showing it its heavenly purpose. The most purposeful way to live is a profitable life that displays the credibility of the Gospel.
