We’ve all experienced the painful emotion of shame—either because we’ve done wrong, or because wrong has been done to us. Sadly, some homes are even based on shame. In this message we explore shame’s consequences, and then look to the Bible to find God’s cure.

Shame is a powerful and painful emotion. We’ve all felt it, but some have felt it so deeply that it threatens to destroy them. Shame can be a paralyzing curse, driving us to do things we would not otherwise do. In this message we explore its origins, then turn to the Bible to discover God’s answer to the curse of shame.

It’s sad, but true: in our modern, “enlightened” culture, we no longer repent of our sins.  Instead, we’ve learned to manage them. We do this, knowing full well that God is not fooled. Yet, we do it anyway. This deception produces bitter fruit.

We’re far from being the inherently good people our culture says we are. In fact, apart from certain restraints, we’re capable of unspeakable evil. In this message we take another step in our journey of self-discovery, a journey in which we’re finding out why we do what we do.

Many people are deluded, seeing themselves as they want to, not as they are. One cause of this can be refusing to listen to the honest critiques of others. In this message we find lessons from the book of James on self-perception and on what it means to hear correctly.

Many ask why seemingly good people turn bad. How can someone turn violent after a lifetime of apparent normalcy? The answer lies in understanding our fundamental human nature. It’s not easy, but it is possible, if you’re willing to face the truth.

All of us are prodigal sons, and our Father rejoices when we come back to Him. But some of us are like the elder brother who cried “unfair” when his sinning brother sought forgiveness. In this message we’ll explore what Jesus thinks about the lost people in your life.

Many runners seek the glory of Olympic gold. But Christians running life’s race have a different motive: to please Jesus. They want to advance His kingdom and bring people to know Him personally. In this message we learn what’s involved in seeking the lost.

When Jesus comes to town, revival often follows. People are convicted of sin, restitution is made, and spiritual life flows where it never had before. Has Jesus come to your town? If not, would you like Him to? 
November 14, 2018
Believers arrive at life’s goal line by faithfully following Christ, who gave His life for others. Taking His gospel to needy people is our primary reason for running the race every day. Are you making an impact in your area of influence?
