Sunday, April 15, 2018: What Compels Us to Sing?

I will sing to the LORD, because he has dealt bountifully with me. (Psalm 13:6) Why do we sing to worship God each week? Because, as the psalmist says, He has dealt bountifully with us. In Christ, God’s greatest provision has met our greatest need in abundance: redemption and everlasting life. It’s like Jesus said, “I came that they may have life and have it abundantly” (John 10:10). Abundant life in Jesus? God’s glorious bounty for sinners like us? What Good News! Because the life we have in Jesus should compel us to sing God’s praises, why wouldn’t (Read More)

Sunday, April 01, 2018: Simple Ways to Make The Most of Easter

“For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.” (1 Corinthians 1:18) “Whose fool are you?” That’s the question LifePoint will be considering this Easter. If you’re planning to join us (8:00, 9:30, or 11:00AM), here are a few simple ways you can make the most of it: (1) Attend our Good Friday service.

Sunday, March 11, 2018: Do You Take The Lord’s Name in Vain?

You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain… (Exodus 20:7) When I was a kid, I assumed that taking the Lord’s name in vain was a commandment people tended to disobey when stubbing their toe on the coffee table. Today, I still believe it’s not a good idea to thoughtlessly invoke the divine name under such circumstances, no matter how badly your pinky toe smarts. But I’ve come to understand that taking the Lord’s name in vain is much weightier than that. It’s actually a matter of true worship versus false worship. You see, when God laid out the (Read More)

What We’re Singing on Sunday, December 31, 2017

But I, through the abundance of your steadfast love, will enter your house. I will bow down toward your holy temple in the fear of you. Lead me, O LORD, in your righteousness because of my enemies; make your way straight before me. (Psalm 5:7–8) We who are strong have an obligation to bear with the failings of the weak, and not to please ourselves. Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, to build him up. For Christ did not please himself, but as it is written, “The reproaches of those who reproached you fell on me.” For whatever was written in former days was written for our (Read More)

What We’re Singing on Christmas Eve

“The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shone. For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do (Read More)

Sunday, November 12, 2017: The Lord’s Day Is Our Weekly Gospel-Pivot

If in Christ we have hope in this life only, we are of all people most to be pitied. (1 Corinthians 15:19) Yesterday I read an opinion piece by a man who claims to be an anti-natalist—someone who believes that having children is immoral. Throughout his article, this man attempted to prove that the cruelty of life in this world should de-motivate procreation. One of his main arguments was the fact that the death rate among human beings is one-hundred percent. If you’re lucky, you only get 95 years on this planet. Death always comes before long, and it always seems to get the last word. (Read More)

Sunday, October 22, 2017: What We’re Singing This Sunday

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. (2 Corinthians 5:14-15) What is COMPELLED? COMPELLED is a movement among our church to live as we’ve been loved by Jesus. We believe God is calling us to do this by expanding our ministry capacity so that we can impact more people with the Good News that His Kingdom has been unleashed amidst our fallen world through Christ’s life, (Read More)
