God is faithful and wise in His workings in human history. Do not be dismayed by what you see, but trust Him to fulfill His promises. Human unbelief does not frustrate God’s gracious plans. Know that He is working in the affairs of men to bring Himself glory.
God’s rejection of Israel was never final, nor full. Indeed, God never fully rejects those whom He has promised to faithfully love. A remnant is always present and is much larger than we often perceive.
Faith is a gift from God that connects us to God’s person and to every one of God’s blessings. Without faith we do not have God and without God we have nothing. In this Father’s Day message from Mark 5:21-43, Pastor Ritch teaches how Jesus used the circumstances of one father to grow and shape his faith and dependence upon God.
Christians are often quick to place their trust in saviors that offer to hope of salvation. In this message, Pastor Josh Beakley teaches the ancient call to worship found in Psalm 146, and the strength it holds for our faith today.
God won’t settle for the work of our hands when He doesn’t first have the worship of our heart. In this message from Luke 10:38-42, Pastor Josh Beakley encourages believers to examine their priorities and make room for worship and to listen for the voice of the Lord.
Fear and anxiety are well-worn tools in the devil’s workshop. The devil presses hundreds of different fears and worries against us to lead us away from worship, and in the face of such spiritual and emotional attacks it is easy to lose hope. But as Pastor Ritch explains in this message from Romans 5, our hope in Christ overwhelms all fears and enables us not only to endure but to rejoice in the face of hardship and trials.
The Christian’s life is marked by prayer, but what exactly does that mean? In this message from Hebrews 4:11-16, Dr. Ritch Boerckel answers three important questions about prayer: what it is, what gives us confidence in it, and what continues to draw us back to it.
