The need for Shepherds

Sunday 11/24/19 Series: Walking the Talk Message – The need for Shepherds [powerpress] The need for Shepherds We are going to begin by comparing two New Testament churches which existed on the polar opposites of the spectrum when it comes to the need for correction & discipline.

Without Mercy

Wednesday 11/20/19 Series: Thru the Bible Message – Without Mercy [powerpress] Without Mercy Ok, I know the title is anything but inviting but this is actually more about mercy than it is about a lack of it.

The Day the Earth stood still

Wednesday 11/06/19 Series: Thru the Bible Message – The Day the Earth stood still! [powerpress] Joshua 8:1-35,  Three main points right off the bat. “(1) The LORD said to Joshua,  “Do not be afraid or discouraged.” – No Fear (Phil 4) “Take the whole military force with you and go attack Ai.” – Many times God has Israel take only a few into battle this time He has them take all into battle. He does both for similar reasons. Faith & Humility. God is ALWAYS teaching us. Just like Deut. 8 tells us, “Pay attention to the WAY God leads […]
