Why the lack of Power in the Church? Sin Isa 59:1-2 Behold, the LORD's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear. Job 10:14 If I sin,…
If God is all good and all powerful, why does he allow bad things to happen? I want to start off by distinguishing between suffering and difficulty. I am talking about suffering today, not difficulty. Just because something is difficult doesn’t mean that you are suffering. You may be straining, you may…

3 And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; 4 and perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us. 1 Therefore, having…
Maybe we cannot understand what they are going through, but we can still pray for them and we can learn from them. They can teach us. The question is what can you learn from those who are being persecuted for their faith? How can we apply what they know and experience from their culture to ours which is vastly different? Fortunately there is something that we still do have in common with them. It is our faith in Jesus and the Word of God. Today I am going to share five things I think we can learn from Martyrs.

I fear many of us don’t say thank you enough to those that have invested themselves in me, in you, and in others---that come along side for a period of time and encourage you in the things…
Summer in the Psalms
The wailing cry of anguish is the tone of Psalm 6. The emotional expression in it reaches a fever pitch. And yet here is the remarkable thing that we’re going to look at closely this Sunday about this psalm: the motivating factor for David’s deliverance from the state of his troubled soul is not primarily comfort and reprieve. What David’s troubled soul longed for the most was the glory of God.
1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so , I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there…
