App Review: Dwell — the best way to listen to Scripture!

4

We have more access to the Bible than any other generation in the history of the world. In Ancient times, Jewish students would study the Scriptures under a Rabbi. There was no pocket Bible, personal scroll, or Bible app to stick in their cloak. If they wanted to know the words of God as transcribed by Moses, David, or any...

The Search for a Biblical View of Counseling (A Helpful Article Review)

0

Dr. David E. Carlson wrote an intriguing article in the mid 70’s that was delivered at the Research in Mental Health and Religions Behavior Conference in 1976. It was title, "Jesus’ Style of Relating: The Search for a Biblical View of Counseling”. His goal for this article was to “Bridge the gap between carrying helping professions and dedicated to communicating...

Not Another Dead God

0

I had the honor of speaking to many of the Denver area Children’s pastors at a luncheon one Wednesday. If I am honest with you, there are times when I am speaking (even on Sunday mornings) when something gets a hold of me and I can’t help but preach all the louder and more passionately. I experienced that right...

In Case You Catch Me Crying…

0

It is safe to say that I am not a cryer. At least not until recently. Now my eyes seem to leak often. While I appreciate a good bought of tears now and then, I don’t cry easily. Yet, ever since the death of an officer in our community, I have found myself crying several times a day. The last...

My Farmer’s Footprints

0

A commercial was playing on the radio as I turned the corner into my office parking lot. I was rather tuned out until the voice in the 30-second spot said, "There is nothing better to have on these fields than the farmer's footprint." The commercial was about organic vegetables, tenderly cared for and grown to supply our local Safeway supermarket....

The Messiah in the Book of Isaiah

3

The storyline of redemption unfolds throughout the Holy Scriptures and reveals God’s intent to reconcile people to Himself and establish His kingdom on earth. With each turn of the page we find a piece of His plan fall into place, His promises kept, and His prophecies fulfilled. The book of Isaiah is one of the clearest depictions of all...

Finding the Courage to Get Back in the Game When You Don’t Feel Like It

My dad was a linebacker for the Air Force Academy football team, and he told me this story:  After the huddle broke, he approached the line. My dad is a pretty big guy, but when he saw who he was up against, he didn’t feel so big anymore. He explains how his opponent was larger than life and even...

Gospel of John Series

0

Part 1: Biographical Sketch of John, The Beloved Disciple In this first sermon of the series, I took the time to give the background on the Apostle John. Because John often referred to himself as the "disciple Jesus loved" we looked more in depth at the love of Christ. The main preaching point was "God's Love Will Never Leave You...

One Another Series

0

In this series I went through 61 passages in the New Testament that had the phrase "One Another" in them. My purpose for the series was to expose the body of Creekside to the mutual submission commands of the New Testament in order to help the be the church Christ desires them to be. Originally I only planned on this...

The Importance of Getting It Out

0

There are often things that gnaw at our soul, but we don’t realize it or want to admit it. Sadly, these things erode our inner-self. The busyness of life, along with our concoctions of self-denial, keep us from stopping the subtle destruction. If we were honest, we have many many destructive secret thoughts… but we don’t want to be...

Thank God: Practical Ways to Show Gratitude to the Almighty

1

One of my favorite movies of all time is The Count of Monte Christo. It’s a story about a man named Edmond Dontez escapes from the Cheteau D’if, which is like the Alcatraz of France. Exhausted and wave-battered from his getaway he wakes up on the beach of a far off island to find that he has been discovered by...

Why You Need to Avoid Hypocrites Completely

0

Have you ever heard the phrase - “A wolf in sheep’s clothing?” It’s a statement that is often used to refer to people who are sly, tricky or deceitful. At first you may perceive a person like this to be harmless, but the closer you get to them, you find that they are out to devour whatever they can...
