August 28, 2017

When You’ve Been Wronged
Conflict in relationships is inevitable, but healing and reconciliation often is not. Time and again we've tried every option and failed, and all we are left with is a load of guilt and pain. Pastor Erwin Lutzer shows how the blessing the Lord gives to those who suffer unjustly is worth the pain involved. He also illustrates the need to leave our broken relationships in the hands of God and move forward in our lives toward freedom.

In a downturn, money is on everyone’s mind. Job losses mount and foreclosures haunt many neighborhoods. So what does God say about money, when it seems the future is getting bleaker all the time? In this message we’ll begin to find out.

Ever wonder what you’ll look like in eternity? Will others recognize you as you looked on earth? Believers are promised a glorious incorruptible body. In this message, we’ll explore what it will be like when, one day, we will walk the streets of gold.

It’s almost too much to contemplate: Believers in Christ have a glorious eternal future because God made sure we would get there. We were predestined and called to become like Jesus and, one day, have a heavenly body like His.
