Repentance: God’s Loving Invitation to Refreshment

We may think of the word repent as an outdated term, associated with men who walked around downtown with sandwich boards proclaiming, “Repent for the end is at hand.” The term seems odd, patriarchal, narrow-minded, and restrictive

I think what you will find in this short sermon is that it is a very relevant term. Relevant for your life, relevant for your growth and relevant for your family. 

To repent is to have a change of mind that results in a change of direction.  It admits there is a standard that we are not meeting up too. And it is a loving call to change. I think you will be edified as you listen to this podcast

Love the Ones You’re With: One Way Jesus Shows Off His Glory

We all know that God calls us to love our family. But what if there was a reason deeper than we knew that could motivate our love? In this podcast we are going to spend some time thinking about Jesus’ command that his disciples should love one another as he loved them. 

This is a profound command and impossible apart from the Spirit. But it is even more profound when we start thinking about loving, not some person at church but my family. My husband, my wife, my child. It is vital we do love each other with an agape love. Our children and the world are watching. 

I think you are going to discover encouragement and a new perspective on loving those who may be the […]
