Sunday, August 19, 2018: God Doesn’t Sit on A Swivel Chair

The LORD make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you. (Numbers 6:25) Author James Bryan Smith, sharing his testimony, talks about how he used to view God before coming to a true knowledge of His love: “For years I related to God as if He sat in a swivel chair. When I did something good, God would look at me and smile. When I did something bad, God would turn His back to me until I made amends, when He would swivel back and accept me again. I kept God constantly on the move.”  Smith’s testimony is something most—if not all—of us can relate to in some way or (Read More)

Sunday, August 12, 2018: God Still Shows Up in the Nazareths of This World

Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, “Surely the LORD is in this place, and I did not know it.” (Genesis 28:16) In John 1:45, Philip tells Nathaniel, “We have found Him of whom Moses in the law and also the prophets wrote: Jesus of Nazareth.” For an Israelite at the time, this would’ve come as a surprise—”the world’s Messiah is from where now? Nazareth? Of all places?” You see, Nazareth wasn’t exactly a desirable place to live. It was about as podunk as you could get, hence Nathaniel’s snobbish response: “Can anything good come (Read More)

Sunday, August 05, 2018: You’re in Two Places at Once

“Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” (Matthew 6:10) In Scripture, God occasionally allows us a peak behind the curtain of this material world to see how He is worshiped in heaven. One can’t help but marvel while reading such accounts—Isaiah’s vision in the temple, Ezekiel’s calling at the Chebar Canal, John’s encounter with Jesus while in captivity on the island Patmos. These men experienced heaven and their lives were forever transformed as a result. Indeed, these passages cause us to long for the bright future that awaits (Read More)

Sunday, June 24, 2018: What Are You Confessing?

So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. (1 John 4:16a) “You are loved.” If you worship with LifePoint regularly, you’re not unaccustomed to hearing those three words. They’re spoken over you every week. They’re the punctuation mark of our worship gatherings. But how do we know those words are true? How do we know that God loves us? The apostle John says it’s because we “confess that Jesus is the Son of God” (1 John 4:15). Whoever makes that confession by faith, “God abides in him, and he in God.” And (Read More)

Sunday, June 17, 2018: Getting to the Heart of What Church is All About

“For the love of Christ controls us, because we have concluded this: that one has died for all, therefore all have died; and he died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised. From now on, therefore, we regard no one according to the flesh…” (2 Corinthians 5:14–16a) When we truly experience God’s love, we are transformed into willing servants. Jesus frees us to love and serve others rather than regarding them according to the flesh. That’s what defined the apostle Paul’s life. (Read More)
