Here's what Martin Luther said about music: “I, Doctor Martin Luther, wish all lovers of the unshackled art of music grace and peace from God the Father and from our Lord Jesus Christ! I truly desire that all Christians would love and regard as worthy the lovely gift of music, which is a precious, worthy, and costly treasure given to mankind by God ......Keep Reading

Resources for Growing in Godliness

It is helpful to think of our growth in godliness as growth. Things that grow take time, and things that grow usually take a measure of work. That's why Paul says writes to Timothy, "train yourself for godliness" (1 Timothy 4:7). How exactly do we train ourselves for godliness?...Keep Reading

God's Ordinary Means of Grace and Growth

How does God get his extraordinary work done in us and through us? He gets his work done through the ordinary things of the Word, fellowship with believers, singing, our weekly gatherings, and of course prayer. In Sunday's sermon, "Christ-Filled Prayer," we began by exploring this idea of God's ordinary means of grace and growth. It's an important paradigm as we think about our church, what we're doing, why we do it, what we should do, etc. ...Keep Reading

Are You Lukewarm?

To the church at Laodicea, Jesus said, "because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth" (3:16). Would Jesus say to that to us? Would Jesus say that about you?

What's So Great About Heaven?

On Sunday, we scaled the glorious mount of Revelation 21–22, the very end of our Bibles and a symbolic vision into the new creation. There, the Lord promises many things. But at the heart of this vision are these words: "Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man" (21:3). There are many joys to be had in this life, and there will be many joys in heaven....Keep Reading

Four Passages for Gospel Passageways

Jesus wants to give you an open door. In Sunday's sermon we looked at Revelation 3:7–13 where Jesus says to the church at Philadelphia, "Behold, I have set before you an open door" (Rev. 3:8). As we naturally ask about so many lines in the book of Revelation, what does that even mean? A door to where? Jesus is talking about an open door for the gospel in thier city. A great opportunity for a small church. ...Keep Reading

What Excites Us the Most?

I decided to start a blog for our church family. Then I decided I'd wait for a bit, and start it later. Then I came across a quote for Sunday's sermon and I had no choice but to start a blog. So, here it is. This Sunday we were in Revelation 3:1–7, part of our series, The Seven: Jesus' Words to the Churches in Revelation. Here, Jesus writes to a church that is on its death bed. How does a once-thriving church get there?...Keep Reading
