How sad it is when you think that nobody cares for you. But it is far more sad to think that people -- who long for love and care -- do not care for the one who really cares for them. That one is Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God. There are many passages in the Bible that show Jesus took time to…

God’s Great Invitation Isaiah 55:1-9 1. ADMIT your thirst and poverty. “If there lurks in most modern minds the notion that to desire our own good and earnestly to hope for the enjoyment of it is a bad thing, I submit that this notion has crept in from Kant and the Stoics and is no part of the Christian…

Ordinary People: Radical joy
Last week, Pastor Hyeon Son Lim was released from a North Korean labour camp, imprisoned for his faith. He stated on Sunday, “I learned to fully accept all of this as a form of God's love and discipline to make me stronger.” Pastor Lim found contentment, even under terrible circumstances. What does this say about us and our trivial discontentment? How should we look at our finances, time and relationships, as content Christians?
The words “are we done” can have different meanings based upon the different settings in which it is used. These words can be declared with somewhat of a confidence that all the options have been explored or all the tasks have been completed. The classic Aesop Fable of The Milkmaid and Her Pail is a…

Psalm 17 has a close relationship to Psalm 16 in content and focus. However, Psalm 17 has an urgent plea for protection (Ps 17:1, 6-9). Psalm 17 describes the relationship between satisfaction and personal choices of sin and righteousness. For David, God protects him because he is satisfied with God himself (Ps 17:15). In Contrast, the wicked do not have such refuge because they are content with the things (material possessions and children) of this World. Psalm 17 gives us a strong call make God your satisfaction.

One of the most powerful quotes that I’ve heard in a long time (apart from Scripture)... Is one from Francis Chan... “Our greatest fear should not be of failure but of succeeding at things in life that don't really matter.” 18 I hated all my toil in which I toil under the sun, seeing that I must leave…
The Demands of Christ
Chris Brewster • The Well Church OKC • Sermon • • 129 views • 1:05:38
As people, it is apparent that we are remarkably bad at choosing people for the best reasons. We are predictably drawn to what we see, to the outward appearance. This is often the natural inception of our understanding of others, and this is not always a bad thing. However, we have to move to a much more accurate assessment of someone by viewing who they are in the inside. When we miss this, we end up with all kinds of trouble. We elect, hire, marry, reward attractive people, or people who perform well, but miss the much more important beauty of so many who may not have the appearance of others. In the same way, we have learned to have the outside of our cups clean and decorated in specific ways in order to be accepted.
