Series: The Lord’s Prayer.

Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread

This Sunday, we move into the second part of the Lord’s Prayer. We need begin to petition, or ask, for specific things from God. As I think about the idea of daily bread, I realize that we are a very needy people. There are so many things that we can’t control in our lives and we need a loving father to provide for us, to comfort us, and to protect us.

Are you going through a difficulty right now? If so, this idea of asking for your “daily bread” is God’s answer for you.

To prepare, read Matthew 6:25-33, Exodus 16:1-36, and John 6:25-35. See if you can discover how each of these passages are related, and come ready to hear from God’s Word how needy people can live with hope, joy, and confidence!

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

February 14th News: “Thy Will Be Done”

February 12, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: The Lord’s Prayer.

Thy Will Be Done

The climax of the first part of the Lord’s Prayer is the phrase, Thy Will Be Done.

When we think of those words, there is an obvious desire for God’s good and perfect will to be done on this earth as in heaven. But what happens when God’s will is not the same as our will. How can we pray these words with peace and hope if it means that we may have to set aside what we want to happen in our lives and the world.

This a powerful phrase that we must wrestle with before we can move on to asking for daily bread and protection.

To prepare for this Sunday, read Matthew 26:36-46 and see an example of Jesus praying this exact prayer. Also read 2 Kings 6:8-18.

There is snow in the forecast, but it should be over in time for us to be able to meet on Sunday. I want to encourage you to read the scripture above and come ready to hear why we should and how we can pray thy will be done with joy and confidence!

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

September 6th News: James 5:7-20

September 4, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

Series-The Book of James: Faith + Action

This Sunday we will conclude our study of the Book of James by seeing another area of life that we are called to submit to God. Last week we talked about submitting our treasure– money and possessions– to God. This is no easy task. And this week, we address, perhaps, an even more difficult area of life that we need to submit to God: suffering.

James ends his book where he started by talking about trials and testing. He was writing to Christians who were undergoing great persecution and suffering, and James wanted to focus their attention on God.

He is writing to us as well. We all experience suffering in life. In fact, many of us are in the midst of very difficult and trying situations right now. What does James say to us?

To prepare for this Sunday, read James 5:7-20 and James 1:2-4 (you will see how he begins and ends on the same topic). And come Sunday ready to lay whatever you are dealing with at the foot of the cross. My prayer is that you will find encouragement and hope in the words James shares– the words God wants you to hear this Sunday.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

We fast forward to the Book of Genesis. The Israelites find themselves living in Egypt oppressed as slaves. God shows up and calls a man named Moses to perform a specific task.

In this message we come face-to-face with a God who uses people like you and me to carry out his will in the world.

The Lord of the Story– Jacob Steals a Blessing

Series: The Lord of the Story

 

In Genesis 27 we see the story of Jacob fooling his father into giving him the blessing instead of his older brother Esau. What a strange way for God to continue the line of the Messiah!

What does this story say about God? What does it say about us? What’s all this talk of “blessing” all about?

In Genesis 12, God chooses Abram (he later changes his name to Abraham) to be the man who God would bless the world through.

As we look at Abraham’s story, we see our own because it is a powerful story of God’s grace and faithfullness– then, now, and forever!
