Psalm 103

Preached on October 5, 2013
Bible Text: Psalm 103

How quickly we forget just how good it is to be a child of God. Psalm 103 is a psalm of pure praise. David overwhelms his soul with truth about God until it explodes in worship. All people, everywhere bless the Lord.

Day of Atonement

Preached on November 3, 2012
Bible Text: Leviticus 16:1-10

Sin is a big deal to God. Sin is so important to God, yet it is so unimportant to us. We see just how important dealing with sin is to God with the day of Atonement. Jesus is the ultimate sacrifice and demostration of God dealing with our sins and providing forgiven.

A New Heart

Preached on September 5, 2012
Bible Text: Ezekiel 36:20-29

It is God that gives us a new heart, a heart that desires to please Him. If it were for the work of God's Spirit in our lives our hearts would be rock hard, it would have no affection towards God, it would still be stubborn and rebellious.

Preached on July 14, 2012
Bible Text: Jonah 4:1-11

Even when we fail to align our hearts to God, he can still use us, just like he did Jonah. If God can transform an entire nation through a disobedient prophet how much more can He work through a willing heart.
