Knowing God With Heart and Mind

Wandering in the Wilderness: The Pillar and Cloud

During times of trial, God offers to lead us ahead, but we must be willing to fight our need for comfort so that we can courageously embrace uncertainty in faith.

Wandering in the Wilderness: Introduction

We've begun a new sermon series that deals with the peculiar times we are living through as individuals, families, communities, and as the Church.

In this series, we will look at our current events through the lens of Israel’s wilderness wanderings. As we wander in our own wilderness time we will see how the people of God routinely gave up their liberty within God’s grace and exchanged it for slavery to popular culture.

Men After God’s Own Heart: Joseph

We will celebrate Father's Day as we conclude the series, "Men After God's Own Heart" by meeting Joseph of Nazareth, the best stepdad ever. Through him, we see that God uses men (and women) who are humble, slow to anger, and open to the Holy Spirit. Please join me as we celebrate dads and all men who seek God's heart.

Men After God’s Own Heart: Daniel

We continue our series especially for men called, "Men After God's Own Heart" as we meet the Prophet, Daniel. Did you know that he's the only major character in the Bible who has no notable negative traits? Daniel was handsome, smart, and courageous. Do you think those qualities define a man after God's own heart? Who do you think the Book of Daniel is about? 

The Great Divorce: Episode 15

In this final episode we learn Lewis' experience is a dream and that much of what we think of as reality is like a dream. What if this life is just a spec of dust in Heaven?

Men After God’s Own Heart: The Apostles

Pentecost Sunday. It is a time for remembering that God gave us unlimited access to Heaven by sending the Holy Spirit. The Apostles were Spirit-filled men after God's own heart who birthed the Church in which we are disciples of Jesus Christ. Please join me this week as we recall that we are empowered to be Spirit-filled men (and women) after God's own heart.

The Great Divorce: Episode 14

Given one last chance at joy, the vain man chooses Hell. What must it be like for God, and those in God's presence to witness this?

Men After God’s Own Heart: Moses

In this edition of the "Men After God's Own Heart" sermon series we will meet Moses. I could preach a year of sermons about Moses and the Exodus, but this time we will focus upon what made Moses "God's friend." Moses was radically flawed sometimes, but he was a man after God's own heart.

The Great Divorce: Episode 13

In this episode we meet an amazing saint and an equally amazing (for his vanity) sinner. What happens when our delusions take over our being?

Men After God’s Own Heart: Abraham

We begin a new series of messages that focus on men after God's own heart. The first man we will meet is Abraham. We will see that his faith, integrity, and courage made him the father of countless generations, and the second most frequently mentioned Old Testament character in the New Testament. Can you guess who the first is?
