“Love your enemies”

Love your enemies

Jesus Christ said this: But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:44-45) Jesus said this during the Sermon on the Mount. Matthew 5-7 It is not normal for people to love their enemies. Jesus not only taught us to do this, but gave us an example of how to do it. When the Roman soldiers nailed Him to the cross, He called out to God, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” How do you love your…

“Come to ME and you will find REST”

Come to ME and you will find REST

Jesus Christ said this: Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 (NKJV) Is your soul tired? Do you know what it feels like to have a tired soul? It’s different from having a body that is tired from working hard all day. That’s a good feeling, and it helps us to sleep at night. But having a tired soul isn’t a good feeling. It tends to keep us…

“Truth will set you free!”

Truth will set you free!

Jesus Christ said this: Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:31-32 (NKJV) Are you free? It depends a little on how you define freedom. In the context of the passage quoted above (John 8:21-58), Jesus was talking with a group of Jews who had been listening to Him preach. He offered them freedom if they would become His disciples. Jesus’ offer offended them. They declared that they were free already. They were never in bondage to anyone, because they were children of Abraham. Why would Jesus promise…

Who created this?

"Who created this?" mall message

Genesis 1:1 (KJV) “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” Have you ever gazed into the heavens and wondered, how did it get there? Did all those trillions of stars and millions of galaxies actually result from some humongous explosion of gases in outer space eons ago? Have you ever wondered from where the gases might have come, or how it was possible that exploding gases produced precise planetary systems? Do exploding gases bring into being solid materials or an earth filled with living beings? Since the beginning of time, man has been trying to explain the incomprehensible. Have you ever wondered why man doesn’t just accept God’s account: In the beginning…

10 out of 10 die. Are YOU prepared?

"10 out of 10 die. Are YOU prepared?" mall message

Hebrews 9:27 (KJV) “And as is appointed unto man once to die, but after this the judgment;” Every person on the face of the earth is daily moving closer to death. Yet most of us are so preoccupied with living, we give little thought to dying. But why should we think about dying? Won’t we just cease to exist and everything will be all right? The Bible tells us someday the Lord Jesus Christ will return, and ALL who have died, both the holy and the unholy, will rise from the dead. What then? The Holy Scriptures say we will ALL stand before the judgment seat of Christ. Jesus, the Son of God, will invite…

Are YOU sure this evolved?

"Are YOU sure this evolved?" mall message

GENESIS 1:1 (KJV) “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” Throughout time men have tried to unlock the secrets of the universe, especially how it all began. A host of theories have been presented, only to be discarded for yet a newer one. This past century has seen the rise of evolution as the dominate theory. Does this theory unlock truths concerning our origin, truths which had been hidden through the ages? Evolutionary claims say matter is self-originating from nothingness, order is self-produced from mindless chaos, and that we really have no need of a Creator God. Men have learned how to take atoms apart and how to put them together again.…

Are YOU here by chance?

"Are YOU here by chance?" mall message

One of the most common questions people ask is, “Why am I here?” There is only one source that can provide a completely meaningful answer to this question. That source is the Creator of the universe. Through the Bible and the indwelling Spirit of God, our Creator can reveal to people the purpose for which He created them. People’s hearts will never be fully at rest until their hearts are at peace with their Creator and the purpose for which they were created. Your Creator has a specific purpose for creating you. You can discover that purpose as you by faith enter into a loving and obedient relationship with the God of heaven and earth.…
