Skeptics Series | He/She was such a good person, why would God let them suffer?

The Skeptic or Skeptical Christian might respond to the loss of a loved one, "He/She was such a good person, why would God let them suffer like that?" Explore the depths of this question today by considering why we can’t always understand God’s timing and bigger picture (Isaiah 55:8-9), how God is always trying to draw a person and family closer to Him (Pro. 3:5-6), and in comparing that temporary suffering to the eternal suffering Jesus endured for us all to give us peace in life and death. We pray the Lord would bring you this peace again today!

Skeptics Series | Why do people feel a need to believe in God?

Part 1 of the Skeptics Series 

Pastor Mark and Pastor Neal dig into the question of why people feel the need or longing for God. It's part of basic human nature to perceive and commune with the divine. The many religions in the world are an example of the answers that mankind offers satisfy this question. From a skeptical standpoint, many people today see the need to believe in God as a weakness or an outdated notion. However, it's really part of who we are and the Bible describes how God created people with a desire to find out who He is. This question is best answered by the unique gospel of Christ crucified as given to us through the Bible.

Bible Study | Psalm 56

The sixth episode in our ongoing series on the book of Psalms.

In Psalm 56 we see more of the trials which David endured and how his life was difficult in many ways that are different than our lives. We also see the quiet confidence of faith that trusts in God's ways, despite what seems contrary to faith on the outside. David echoes the sentiment over and over that God is the most reliable foundation for one's trust.

Bible Study | Psalm 59

The fifth episode in our ongoing series on the book of Psalms.

Psalm 59 contains several strong sentiments as David seeks God's deliverance from an array of enemies. The Bible speaks to many of the trials David endured as he sought to follow the plan that God had ordained for his life. For David, the fact that God was his strength and refuge was what he turned to in this difficult moments. Though we face difference trials from David, the source of these hardships (sin) is the same. May the study encourage you as you seek to follow God faithfully and as you endure trials for being a believer of Christ Jesus.

Bible Study | Psalm 5

The fourth episode in our ongoing series on the book of Psalms.

Psalm 5 demonstrates the clear standard that God has for complete righteousness. He does not tolerate wickedness and unbelief. Like David and the rest of humanity, we are helpless before God's demands. But we find peace in the message of God's mercy which is proclaimed in His house. May the LORD guide you this week through this psalm.
