    Three Cheers!
    Series: (All)
    “The Three Cheers of Jesus” Many people live their lives full of despair and hopelessness.  They are missing out on the joy of the Lord.  This is probably true for most of us at some time or another.  But Jesus provides what we need to live life abundantly.  This morning, let’s consider three times when Jesus told people to “Be of good cheer!”
    1. The Cheer of Christ’s Forgiveness   (Matthew 9:1-8)
    2. The Cheer of Christ’s Presence   (Mark 6:47-51)
    3. The Cheer of Christ’s Victory   (John 16:33)

    Abigail: A Portrait of Wisdom
    Series: (All)
    1 Samuel 25 On this Mother’s Day, we take a look at a woman whose extraordinary courage and wisdom benefitted two very important, but hot-headed, men—her husband Nabal and the soon-to-be king of Israel, David. Wisdom means keeping your head when others are losing theirs. Wisdom means keeping your commitments even when it’s not easy. Wisdom means keeping your faith even when things look hopeless.

    The Power of Forgiveness
    Series: Joseph
    As the seven years of famine took hold of the entire region, people from all around traveled to Egypt to buy grain.  This included Joseph’s ten older brothers who were sent from Canaan by their father Jacob. Joseph fed them, but also tested them to see how their hearts had changed over the past two decades.  When Joseph finally revealed his identity to them, they were afraid he might take revenge on them for their previous cruelty.  But in Joseph’s response, we are able to see the Power of Forgiveness! What Forgiveness Does NOT Do:
    • It does not indicate weakness on the part of the forgiver.
    • It does not minimize or condone the sin that has been committed.
    • It does not remove all the consequences of sin.
    • It does not immediately wash away all the hurt and pain.
    What Forgiveness Has the Power to Do:
    • It has the power to break the cycle of retaliation.
    • It opens the door to reconciliation.
    • It allows you to live in the present instead of the past.
    • It lets the human heart reflect the character of God!
    Who do you need to forgive today, and whose forgiveness should you seek?

    God-Given Gifts at Work
    Series: Joseph
    Chapters 40 and 41 of Genesis reveal why God allowed Joseph to spend much of his life in Egypt.  Even during his time as a slave and a prisoner, God was equipping him to help save the entire region—including his own family—from seven years of severe famine.  God uniquely “gifted” Joseph with the special skills and abilities he would need to accomplish God’s purposes— from interpreting dreams to administrating the distribution of food.
    • Though our circumstances are much different from Joseph’s, we should be aware that God has also uniquely “gifted” each of us according to His purpose for our lives.
    • When God gives us skills and abilities, He also gives us opportunities to serve Him by helping others.
    • When we use our spiritual gifts for the Lord, He receives the praise and the glory!

    Blessed Are the Pure in Heart
    Series: Joseph
    Genesis 39 After being sold by his brothers to some Ishmaelite traders, Joseph was carried as a slave to Egypt.  He soon found himself serving in the household of Potiphar, a captain of Pharaoh’s guards.  Life could not have been easy, but through hard work and the blessings of God, Joseph was promoted to steward of the house. "The Lord was with Joseph.”  (39:1-6a)

    Surviving the Trials of Life
    Series: Joseph
    Genesis 37:12-36 Joseph, the son of Jacob, was hated by his ten older brothers.  They were jealous of the fancy coat given to him by their father, offended by his grandiose dreams, and enraged that he had been appointed as a supervisor over their work.  Their hatred led them to sell him into slavery, into a life of extreme hardship. Our situations are not the same as Joseph’s, but every person faces trials in life.  God, in his wisdom and grace, is able to use them for good.  When approached with faith, hardships can help us develop important virtues for Christian living.
    • Perseverance
    • Character
    • Hope

    Lessons from Imperfections
    Series: Joseph
    Genesis 37:1-11 Joseph, the eleventh son of Jacob, was born into an imperfect family.  His father was a “trickster” in his younger days, and then had the bad habit of treating Joseph with favoritism in his later years.  Joseph’s older brothers were also flawed individuals, often conniving, deceitful and cruel.  And then there was Joseph himself, who seemed rather immature during his youth, flaunting his favored status and even sharing dreams with his brothers that incited their jealousy all the more. The story of Joseph helps us understand a number of lessons about ourselves and our God:
    • Every one of us is flawed.
    • God has a plan for us even in our imperfections.
    • We are not qualified to disqualify ourselves from God’s service.

    Discovering Easter While Behind Locked Doors
    Series: (All)
    John 20:19-22 On Resurrection Sunday morning, angels rolled back the stone from the door of Jesus’ tomb to reveal that it was empty!  They shared with the faithful women that He was alive, and Jesus proved it by appearing to Mary Magdalene and others during the day.  But in the evening, most of Jesus’ disciples were still so afraid of the Jewish authorities that they gathered together behind locked doors.  Jesus appeared in their midst and gave to them peace, joy, and the power of the Holy Spirit.
    • The living Lord comes to those who are locked behind doors of fear.
    • The living Lord comes to those who are locked behind doors of sorrow.
    • The living Lord comes to those who are locked behind doors of doubt.
    The living Lord can overcome whatever is locking out the peace and joy of God from your life!

    The Path of Palms
    Series: (All)
    John 12:12-32 Two thousand years ago, Jesus decided to throw himself a parade.  It wasn’t an act of egotism; it was an act of obedience and love.  The Path of Palms led from the town of Bethany to Jerusalem by way of the Mount of Olives.  It was a journey of great significance.
    • It was the Path of Proclamation. (12:12-15)
    • It was the Path of Prophesy. (12:16)
    • It was the Path of Peril. (12:17-19, 23-24)
    • It was the Path of Power. (12:31-32)
    Will you follow the man who once entered Jerusalem on a donkey?
    The path of obedience and faith is the path to life. Choose to walk with Jesus!
