“Later, Jesus appeared again to the disciples beside the Sea of Galilee. This is how it happened. 2Several of the disciples were there—Simon Peter, Thomas (nicknamed the Twin), Nathanael from Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two other disciples. 3Simon Peter said, “I’m going fishing.” “We’ll come, too,” they all said. So they went out in the boat, but they caught nothing all night.

Wow!  The last two weeks have been quite the ride.  We celebrated Jesus' Resurrection from the tomb two weeks ago with amazing testimonies from believers whose lives have been forever changed because of their encounter with Jesus.   Congrats to all who were baptized and shared about what Jesus has done in them.  A big shout out of thanks to all who helped make the weekend possible down to the last serve of egg bake and ca

Ahhh, the cheers of the crowd.  Nothing like Major League Baseball home opener, The Masters and the start of Holy Week.  All of these have in common one thing, the cheers of crowds for those they love to see. Jesus had those cheers as He rode into Jerusalem on the donkey.  The were singing His praises and hoping that He would deliver them from the Roman oppression. Instead the freedom He would bring would be even greater tha

“Then Mary took a twelve-ounce jar of expensive perfume made from essence of nard, and she anointed Jesus’ feet with it, wiping his feet with her hair.” – John 12:3 What a great day of worship together.  Babies brought before the Lord for dedication and being reminded of what worship is all about. Does your life smell of worship to God? What keeps you from loving Jesus extravagantly? Mary didn't know of an

“When he finally came to his senses," - Luke 15:17a I am reminded in my sophomore year in college when I finally came to my senses.  I was struggling with everything in college.  Nothing was going very well in class, in relationships and I was about to just say, "I'm going to go a different direction."  I knew God had placed this call on my life but I was miserable. It was during the fall revival services that God confronted

Over the last two weeks we have been with Jesus as He has been addressing those who were opposed to His ways.  They have tried to get Him to leave the area or trick Him and paint Himself into a corner.  But Jesus is able to handle them carefully but sternly. I am reminded that many times Jesus has had to do the same with me.  He has been so loving, kind compassionate, grace-filled but also truth-filled.  He has reminded me many times that

Sunday we began the Lenten Season due to the snow storm.  The Season of Lent is at the very center of our faith. It is a time of intense focus upon Jesus and His relationship with us. He calls us, He is reaching out to us. He is summoning and inviting us to leave the chaos of our lives and until Easter to follow Him along the journey that brought Him to face the Cross and His death. This is a call for us to listen, for Jesus is calling each of us to walk

56,250 steps. Samson had 56,250 opportunities to turn around and go the other way.  How many steps have you had to turn and go the other way? Sunday we looked at how to break a bad practice and the key is to make it difficult.  If 56,250 steps isn't enough add more. Remember the five triggers are a place, by a time, a certain mood, by a moment or you might be triggered by people. It is amazing how our mood really has a lot of affect

I used to link everything I am to what I did.  If things went well I was a success.  If things didn't go well I would shoulder all the blame and think that I was a failure. I felt that often times ALL things rested on me and my performance. This led to perfectionism and wanting to please everyone. Let me just say...YOU CAN NOT DO IT! There is only one that is and ever was perfect.  There is only one who can truly satisfy the thirst and

Paul reminds us today, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” - Philippians 4:6-7 It is easy for us to allow ourselves to be concerned about our circumstances but if that concern isn't
