How's your oil supply? Have you been bringing enough to keep you lamp lit and wait out the Bridegroom? Signs are starting to show up everywhere that Jesus is coming back. Are you ready?
Jesus was describing end times by using the example of the fig. As it matures, you'll be able to see when it's ready to be picked. The same goes for Jesus return...and the fig is ripening!
Have you ever had Jesus speak clearly to you and tell you it's time to step out of the boat? That's exactly what the Washburn family is hearing. What boat are you stuck in? This message details the way God calls us to His plan for our lives.
This is Senior Sunday at Ogden Church! Pastor Jack Hickly challenged the students and adults alike in the question: What does success really look like? In a culture of gain/loss, success is typically misinterpreted. What does God say?
Is it better to say no and then do it when God calls, or to say you'll do it and then not obey? The real issue is are you on the right path or trying to create your own.
The harvest is plenty but the laborers are few. Truth from Jesus regarding those who need to know about Him. But what is our responsibility? It may be even bigger than we thought!
The Narrow Way is one of Jesus most common Parables, but have we been understanding it fully? Is it possible that the Narrow Road wasn't even about Salvation, like many of us think?
At what point do we find ourselves awestruck with God? Is it possible for us to fully understand the cross and NOT be awestruck by God?
Easter is about a great God giving us forgiveness, freedom and hope. We clearly proclaim it both in music and word on this Easter Morning
The plan revealed. Even the disciples were blown away by it because they missed the true way of the King. What is the way of the King? Take a listen and get on board. This King is wrapped in humility to serve and sacrifice.
Who is God to you? We are very good at calling Him LORD and Savior, but is that all? Not according to God, Himself! He wants more from us and you're going to love it!
In this tired and weary world, we expect so little from a God who gave us everything. But Jesus came not to use the old, but to make it new and completely useful. How useful do you feel right now and what has God made NEW in your life and walk with Him?
How does the world see us? What kind of light are we shining...one of hope or one of despair? Jesus has some thoughts for us as we struggle with life from day to day...
When is the last time you prayed for a revival of God in your life? A literal crying out that the Spirit of the Living God would fall fresh on you? Why is it that we don't pray in this way? Maybe the better question is do we really want it?
Not enough faith...the words nobody really wants to hear. So imagine the disciples having to hear that phrase from Jesus? Sometimes our faith is rooted in the wrong direction.
What is influencing your life? Have you allowed an unclean spirit to invade your house? Even worse...have you allowed it to come back and bring friends? Jesus has something to say about how evil works and since He's the Son of God, we should probably listen!
Where is your faith planted? Jesus gave us multiple examples of our faith through the example of the sower, but the real question is are you growing? Is your faith flourishing or withering?
The love of God propels us to forgive. Many think that we can only forgive when we love others, but what is God saying about our enemies? Maybe we should forgive because of God's loving forgiveness of us? Or better yet...maybe we forgive through the power of God's love for us?
Jesus compares his generation to children in the marketplace...or on the playground. What does that mean? Maybe the bigger question is who's rules are you playing by? Are you just following the crowd or letting God make the rules?
We all build houses in life. It's what our foundation is that makes the difference in whether it sustains the storms of this life. We can be wise or we can be foolish, either way, the storms will come.
