Obstacles: Sin
Series: Obstacles
  Face to face with the reality of our sin, we recognize that Jesus died to take away our sin and condemn its’ power.  Therefore, we are no longer condemned, and the way forward for those in Christ is living according to the truth about ourselves and about what God has done.

    Consider Carefully How You Listen
    Series: None
    We know and experience that there is a difference between hearing and listening. Parents sometimes experience it with their children, and a spouse may experience it too. It is possible to hear, but to not really listen, or understand. Jesus talked about hearing and listening in Luke 8. In exploring three passages that aren’t often studied together, we examine what God desires and expects from us as hearers. Luke 8:4-21

    Series: None
    The Pharisees asked Jesus’ disciples, “Why does he eat with sinners and tax collectors?”  Interesting question.  Why did Jesus?  And, why do we, or why don’t we? As we understand Jesus’ motivation, we see a clear directive for our lives and our relationships. Luke 5:27-32

    Discerning What is Best
    Series: Philippians
    What decision do we make?  How do we discern what’s best?  Based on Paul’s letter to the church in Philippi, here are four questions to ask to help us in this process.

    Pressing On
    Series: Philippians
    Paul prays that the Philippians’ “love will abound more and more,” and he encourages them toward continued growth by acknowledging that even he hasn’t “obtained all this or has already been made perfect.”  He reminds them to press on toward the goal of knowing Christ Jesus more.  These words for the Philippian church are equally applicable for us today.

    Partnership in the Gospel
    Series: Philippians
    We all want a connection with people and we want our life to matter.  But when we seek out those things as the goal, they can be elusive and we often come up empty.  In the beginning of his letter to the church in Philippi, Paul describes their partnership in the gospel– a partnership that produces purpose and community as well as joy in individuals.

    More Than A Story: What We’ve Learned from the Life of Moses
    As we end this sermon series Learning from the Life of Moses, we look at scripture from the end of Moses’ life as he looked back and recapped all that God had done.  In Deuteronomy 4, we see how Moses proclaimed that God was the only one who could have done what he did among the Israelites, and we are challenged along with the Israelites to remember what God has done and, as a result, trust and follow God more.

    I Spy
    As they neared the Promised Land, Moses and the Israelites sent 12 men to investigate the land (Numbers 13-14).  Ten of the 12 had one impression, while two had a different impression.  Their facts were the same, but their vision differed greatly.  Ultimately, they missed out on what God had promised. Our perspective matters, too.  When we don’t have faith in God, we may miss out on what God can do.

    With or Without You
    Even after the Israelites sinned against God and created the golden calf, God graciously reaffirmed his promise to provide a better land.  When God said he would now not come with them, Moses pleaded for his presence.  Even after God promised his presence, Moses asked for more.  He asked to see God’s glory – he wanted to know the person and character of God intimately. Are we satisfied with the blessings of God?  Do we realize our need for the presence of God?  Do we want more than anything else to know God?   Exodus 33:1-18

    Provision Leads To…
    Learning from God’s faithful provision for the Israelites, even in the midst of their grumbling and complaining, we are reminded that God wants us to trust  and follow him more as a result of his faithfulness.

    Judgement Passes Over
    The judgment and wrath of God comes because of disobedience, rebellion, and hardheartedness against God, but it will pass over those marked with the blood of the lamb.  This truth applied to Moses and the Israelites, and it applies to us today as well.

    Let My People Go
    Through the familiar Biblical account of the plagues on Egypt, we are reminded that God goes to great lengths to tirelessly and patiently pursue a relationship with his people, demonstrating his power so that we will know he is God and working in ways we may not yet see.

    The Bush Said What?
    God came to Moses in the burning bush to get his attention because God had something important to say:  God had seen the suffering of his people, God cared, God had come down to rescue, and had something better for them. The message is for us, too.  God cares about us and has come to rescue us, offering abundant life in Jesus.  And just as God sent Moses to deliver that message to his people, God calls us to embody the message of hope to our people. Exodus 3:1-12
