Strategies for Tough Times
Intro We have had an interesting couple of years here. First there was a virus we began to hear about and in almost no time, the world shut down. President Trump shut down the borders and had everyone stay home… we along with the rest of the world went into a 2 month lock down… some longer. The isolation…

Suffering often shocks the Christian and non-Christian. Our culture tells us we can find happiness in the world. But experience and this passage teaches this world brings futility, corruption, and pain. This wonderful passage teaches us not to hope in this world, but in the one to come. This life is not without hope when we believe in Christ because we are promised a day when sin and death will be no more.

Redemption: How Jesus Frees Us
The Exodus gives us a vivid picture of how Jesus saves us, how he redeems us. Each step toward redemption in someone’s life is often met with greater affliction. It was for Israel in Egypt, and it is for us today. Religion/Oppression says, “It’s not enough! Work harder!” – implying that somehow if you do enough you will earn God’s love and favor. This week we see the Israelites forced to work harder to try and please their taskmasters. Jesus’ Gospel says, “You can never do enough… let me do it for you.” God’s favor isn’t earned, but it is a gift of his grace through Jesus. When you face affliction in the midst of following Jesus, remember that God can and will turn your troubles into triumph. Trust Jesus, and keep moving forward.
How do you respond to these promises of God? 18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. 28 And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.…

When I was a child, 5 or 6 years old, our family took a three weeklong camping trip to see "many" of the national parks in the US. It was a great experience for us as a family. It was a great experience for me. Someday I’d like for Patti and I to do something similar, but probably not in a tent. While…

Romans: Real Hope for the Righteousness of God
To be a Christian is to be united to Christ, and to be united to Christ is to be victorious over the devastating power of sin. Consequently, the Christian is encouraged to fight sin with the superior power of God's grace. As we see the benefits we have from the freedom Christ has given us, the allure of sin will diminish, and we will grow in the holiness that ends in eternal life.
