    Be The Church
    When Jesus was on this earth, he addressed the physical and spiritual needs of people. He left a physical manifestation of his body on earth to continue his work -- you and I. We are his body to help hurting people.

    Don’t Stay That Way
    God loves you just the way you are, but he loves you too much to leave you that way. When we stay connected to God, he will bring about growth. But how do we remain connected?

    There Are No Perfect People
    The rules say: don't tell them too much, don't be real or vulnerable. Yet these rules keep us stuck.
    God has changes the rules: His new family is a family of authenticity that helps us discover what God really intend for us.

    Come As You Are
    Grace is the centerline of Christianity. When we don't embrace grace it causes us to continue to be trapped in a cycle of sin-death. But God embraced us with grace, and called us to be channels of His grace through acceptance of others.

    Our culture says choose the best, the brightest, the fastest, and the biggest. But when God chooses He tends to choose the unconventional, the unlikely. That is the pattern of the Kingdom.

    God still provides a lamb so his people will live.

    Feb 26, 2017
    Every covenant includes a rite of admission. For Abraham that right was the act of circumcision for all the men who were part of his household. In circumcision they showed they agreed to be counted among God's covenant people. For Christians, we enter into that covenant relationship through the action of baptism.

    Priest King
    You would think that Melchizedek is an insignificant character in Scripture. He appears in the life of Abram and is gone after four verses. But this fleeting character is unfolded for us in Psalm 110 and Hebrews 6 and 7 as a compelling type for the Messiah, both king and priest. In this type he presents two convincing truths: God can be trusted, and our salvation is sure.
