Lazarus and What's His Name?

Patrice McCormac
Luke 16:19-31

Although being wealthy is not a sin, it can blind us to the things of God. God gives each of us a measure of wealth, whether a little or a lot, with the intent that we use it to bring Him glory. God has a great concern for the poor. We can use our wealth on our selves as the rich man did or we can use it to serve the poor and bring glory to God.

Three Responses to God's Goodness

Patrice McCormac
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Regardless of our circumstances, we are called to have three responses to God's goodness. First, we are challenged to rejoice always in Christ no matter how good or bad are the circumstances. It is a choice we make to see God at work in the midst of our circumstances. Second, we are to pray without ceasing. We are to have an ongoing conversation with God throughout the day. Third, we must give thanks in everything, but not for everything. We have only to look at the cross to see our source of thankfulness.

Mike Woods

Living Sacrifices

Ben Foust

What Is It About this Church?
