Steve Davis, from Acts 4:23-31. The early church responded to persecution by praying together to the sovereign Lord for boldness!
Cary Cox, from Romans 8:28-30. God has a special people, and he is working out his sovereign purpose for his people in everything that happens! We find encouragement and hope in the unbreakable chain of God’s saving purpose in Christ!
Steve Davis, from Jeremiah 29:1-14. God sent a word to his people who were in exile, through Jeremiah the prophet. God had not given up on them, even though he was disciplining them for their sins. He was unfolding a good plan for them, but it would include suffering. Consider the sovereignty of God and his great love for his people!
Cary Cox, from Joshua chapter 9. Israel fails. They are tricked into making a peace treaty with the Gibeonites, instead of wiping them out! Yet God steps in with unexpected mercy! He is the God who intervenes and turns failures and messes into beautiful things for his glory and our good!
Cary Cox, from Matthew 13:1-23. Jesus begins his teaching in parables, both revealing and concealing truth according to God’s plan. Many look promising at first, but do not endure to the end or produce fruit. Which soil are you?
Pastor Cary Cox from Matthew 11:25-27. In these 3 short verses we see Jesus breaking out into praise, glorifying God for being the Sovereign Lord who both hides and reveals spiritual truth! We are born in a state of blindness and we desperately need God to reveal truth to us. This is done only in Christ.
Pastor Cary Cox, from Matthew 2:1-12.
Matthew is telling us that with Jesus’ coming the kingdom of God has burst into this broken world. The wise men being miraculously led to the Child give us a glimpse of what God is doing: people from every tribe, tongue and nation – Gentiles! – are coming into God’s kingdom through the powerful and sovereign work of God.
