    Valentine's Day: If church members do Christian things like feed the homeless or go on mission trips, and these acts are done without love, then people are just wasting their time. Without love, God doesn’t care what we do for Him.

    Neil Postman writes in his book Amusing Ourselves to Death, “that we have reached the point where cosmetics has replaced ideology [or “practice”] as [a] field of expertise.”(1) The verb “cosmeticize” means, “to make something unpleasant or ugly superficially attractive.”(2) It’s common for people ...read more

    Valentine's Day: Peter came very close to viewing himself by his failures instead of seeing himself through the eyes of Christ. He finally came to realize that he was a beloved disciple. And Jesus sees you as cherished too!

    This morning I want to address the topic of our identity in Christ, concerning how we are a people covered by grace, and how we are deeply loved and cherished. Many believers walk about feeling defeated. They come down hard on themselves and never accept the forgiveness that God wants to offer ...read more

    Valentine's Day: Human beings have distorted the meaning of love. Some of the distortions about love are that love is purely physical, or that love is only a temporary state. These interpretations about love are way off base.

    The Greek writer Lucian who lived from 120-200 A.D. made an observation about Christians. He said, “It is incredible to see the fervor with which the people of that religion help each other in their wants. They spare nothing. Their first [leader, Jesus], has put it into their heads that they are ...read more

    Valentine's Day: This message examines the real story behind Valentine’s Day, and discusses the true nature of the love that’s supposed to be remembered and practiced on this holiday.

    As you well know, Valentine’s Day will be here in just a few days. In America, Valentine’s is a day of love.

    Valentine's Day: If we know Jesus, God loves us so greatly and is filled with such joy, that He rejoices over us! In this message we come to know the Lord’s extravagant love, as we look at our God who sings and dances over us.

    Frederick Nietzsche, the nineteenth century German philosopher, stated, “If they want me to believe in their God, they’ll have to sing me better songs . . . I could only believe in a God who dances.”(1) Our view of God determines our relationship with Him. Many individuals see the Lord as someone ...read more

    Valentine's Day: The relationship between Christ and the church is often expressed in terms of a wedding, from the proposal to the ceremony. While we wait for the bridegroom, we must set our heart on fulfilling His passions.

    At Valentine’s Day we often think about love, romantic love that is; and one of the most beautiful images that come to mind is a wedding ceremony. Next to that might be the engagement, where a man gets down on one knee for the proposal, while the woman listens to his expression of undying love and ...read more
