    From Doubt to Faith

    04/04/2021 Duración: 47min

    Luke 24:1-53 - Speaker: Lukus Counterman - Easter is a time when Christians celebrate the risen Savior. The biblical record explains how Jesus was crucified on behalf of sinners, and if that would have been the end of the story it would have been a tragedy. But instead, on the third day, Jesus rose from the grave. He had victory over death. The tomb could not hold him, and as the Author of Life, he emerged that first Easter as Lord of all. As we prepare to worship our risen Christ, consider all that the resurrection means. It means Satan doesn’t get the last laugh. It means Jesus payment was enough. It means Christ is Lord even over death itself. It means the living Savior can offer life. It means so much to us. So, consider the resurrection and worship Jesus this Easter!

  • A Life That Pleases God

    A Life That Pleases God

    Deuteronomy 10:12-11:32 - Speaker: Lukus Counterman - Have you ever thought about what it means to live a life that pleases God? Deuteronomy 10:12-13 provide a brief but memorable summary of a Godward life. Many scholars believe that this was one of Israel’s earliest catechisms. It starts with a question, “What does the Lord your God require of you?” And then it provides a short but comprehensive answer: “fear the Lord your God, walk in all his ways, love him, serve [him], and keep the commandments and statutes of the Lord.” This sort of life is only possible after God changes our hearts, but this sort of life promises the greatest satisfaction and blessing we could ever experience. So, may the Lord teach us to live for him.

  • Confidence in a Gracious God

    Confidence in a Gracious God

    Deuteronomy 9:1-10:11 - Speaker: Lukus Counterman - In our text, Moses talks to the nation of Israel about their entrance into the promised land of Canaan. They were about to be blessed beyond measure and inherit what they could only have dreamed of as former slaves in Egypt. And the temptation of blessed and victorious people is to attribute success to one’s own goodness instead of God’s graciousness. So, Moses made it clear that the favor of God is a gift to be received not a prize to be earned. His blessings are tokens of divine generosity, not rewards for personal merit. Christians can learn some important lessons from Moses’ sermon. Our salvation, and all the blessings that accompany it, are not because of our righteousness but according to his mercy. And the only appropriate response to such grace is to praise and worship God. May the Lord deepen our humility and enlarge our gratitude for his grace.

  • The Power of Great Forgiveness

    The Power of Great Forgiveness

    07/03/2021 Duración: 44min

    Luke 7:36-50 - Speaker: Josh MacAvoy - Have you ever been in a social setting where someone, maybe it was you, did something incredibly awkward, embarrassing, and sadly memorable? Our parable for this week is at the center of one of those awkward social encounters. In the middle of a dinner party an obvious and well-known sinner begins to make a scene. People begin to wonder. Doesn’t she understand this is not the place? What is she doing? Why isn’t Jesus stopping her? As these questions are thought and whispered, Jesus teaches through a parable. And through it all, we find that the dinner guests didn’t understand this woman’s actions because they didn’t understand key elements of forgiveness. But it is not just the dinner guests of that particular party that don’t understand forgiveness, we too struggle to understand key elements of forgiveness. By including this parable in the Gospel of Luke, God is teaching what we need to understand about forgiveness. Read Luke 7:36-50 to understand the story and prepar

  • Following Christ Will Cost You Everything

    Following Christ Will Cost You Everything

    Luke 14:25-33 - Speaker: Paul Campbell - Why does Jesus warn us about being His disciple? It looks like Jesus is trying to talk people out of following Him. Why would He do this? Jesus wants to make sure that any potential follower takes the time to count the cost. And, the cost is high! Being a disciple of Jesus will cost you your family, your safety, and everything that you own. Are you ready for this? Are you really His disciple? If you are already a disciple of Jesus, what are you still hanging onto that has taken priority over your discipleship? Jesus is going to show us that following Him will cost you everything! This sounds appalling to the unbeliever. But to the follower of Jesus, this truth means life.

  • Depend on God Alone

    Depend on God Alone

    21/02/2021 Duración: 49min

    Deuteronomy 8:1-20 - Speaker: Lukus Counterman - Some people look at the Israelite’s forty years of wandering in the wilderness and think, “What a waste!” But God actually had good intentions and purposeful plans for his people during that season of difficulty. You see, in times of adversity, God can work blessings. And the opposite is true as well. In times of blessings, we can be struggle with new forms of adversity. When the Israelites entered the promised land with all its abundance, they encountered a new set of spiritual challenges. But whether it’s a place of difficulty or blessing, God wants his people to depend on him alone. The wilderness can’t kill, and the promised land can’t fill – we live by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.

  • Gods Distinct People

    God's Distinct People

    14/02/2021 Duración: 56min

    Deuteronomy 7:1-26 - Speaker: Lukus Counterman - Deuteronomy 7 describes how God’s people are supposed to be distinctively different from the Canaanite nations they are about to displace. Moses grounds this call in the electing purposes of God. You see, Israel wasn’t just another people group peppering the pages of human history. No, Israel was chosen out of love to be holy among the nations for the glory of God. So, they needed to live in light of their identity. And we must do the same. Centuries later, the apostle Peter would look to the church and say, “you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession… Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy… that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light” (1 Pet. 2:9-10). May we learn to live distinctively because we are the elect of the true and living God.

  • One Lord, One Love, One Loyalty

    One Lord, One Love, One Loyalty

    07/02/2021 Duración: 49min

    Deuteronomy 6:4-25 - Speaker: Lukus Counterman - Jesus was once asked which commandment was greatest. His response came from Deuteronomy 6:5 “love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.” This is the first and greatest command. What God wants is a love for him that eclipses and displaces all others. And it’s not an unfounded desire. You see, God deserves our love because he alone is the Lord of glory. All other loyalties should be uprooted, and all other idols should be torn down because he alone is worthy of our worship, affection, and devotion. May the Lord teach us to love him, fear him, and serve him with all that we are and all that we have. May he be glorified through our lives.

  • Revelation, Relationship, and Rewards

    Revelation, Relationship, and Rewards

    31/01/2021 Duración: 55min

    Deuteronomy 5:22-6:3 - Speaker: Lukus Counterman - As the people of Israel gathered for worship, Moses reminded them of God’s majesty, and his word’s authority. At Mount Sinai, the people beheld the glory of God and heard the word of God, and that was supposed to make a life-long impact. Whenever God reveals himself it is a work of grace, and the only appropriate response is to draw near in a relationship of reverence and obedience. That’s precisely what the people of God did in Deuteronomy 5. Consequently, the Lord promised his blessing to all those who lived according to his will. The lesson of our text this week is that God reveals his glory so that we might live in relationship and experience his rewards. May the Lord open our hearts to receive his word such that we hear and do it.

  • Gods View of Abortion and You

    God's View of Abortion and You

    24/01/2021 Duración: 55min

    - Speaker: Lukus Counterman - God ordained the government to promote good and punish evil (Rom. 13:3-4). But the current realities of abortion in our country depict great failure on the part of the state. Our government is not protecting the innocents nor is it penalizing the guilty. Instead, it has abdicated its responsibility and millions of unborn babies are paying the price. If we believe the bible, then we must speak out against the injustice of abortion. If we believe the gospel, then we must compassionately introduce sinners to a God who forgives entirely, heals deeply, and restores completely. Our holy God hates abortion. But our loving God forgives sinners. May the Lord lead us in both grace and truth as we consider the sanctity of life this Sunday.

  • Courageous Joy

    Courageous Joy

    17/01/2021 Duración: 50min

    John 16:16-33 - Speaker: Jon Kopp - In today’s text, we find Jesus’ last counsel to his disciples before He goes to the cross. And, as He prepares them for the difficulty that they will face in the days ahead, He is concerned with something surprising—their joy. He wants them to know that even as they face deep sorrow and difficulty–even personal failure--they could find a joy that “no-one could take away from them.” A joy that “asks anything of the Father and it will be given to them” A joy that “is courageous in the face of trouble.” In Jesus, we can have courageous joy. This is what Jesus wanted His disciples to remember as he was taken from them and mocked and beaten and hung on a cross to die. "In me, you have everything that you need to face the coming days, because in me, you have courageous joy." I love how Athanasius, one of the early church Fathers speaks of the importance of living in that same joy. ”Let us be courageous and rejoice always, believing that we are safe. Let us consider that the Lord

  • When God Speaks

    When God Speaks

    Deuteronomy 4:44-5:22 - Speaker: Lukus Counterman - Welcome back to Deuteronomy. Like a long-lost friend we are looking forward to returning to this rich book of the Bible in 2021. In Deuteronomy 5 we are going to encounter the second giving of the Decalogue (popularly known as the Ten Commandments). God’s plan was to describe principles of covenant relationship that would bring life to his people. As the One who redeemed them from slavery and graciously led them to the promised land, God wanted to reveal his will so that they could flourish. As we encounter this well-known list, let’s ask God to help us “hear,” “learn,” and “do” what he commands. Let’s ask God to help us abide in the vine and bear the fruits of covenant love and obedience.[1] Let’s look to Jesus for mercy and strength since he perfectly fulfilled the law and is willingly imputes his righteousness to all who believe in him.

    Praying that Transforms Your Life

    05/01/2021 Duración: 34min

    2 Thessalonians 3:1-5 - Speaker: Dr. Sam Horn - "Paul’s fundamental concern is the advance of the gospel of Jesus Christ. To that end, he has worked, prayed, and asked for prayer that the word of the Lord would speed ahead and be honored and that he and his companions would be delivered from wicked and evil men. Paul’s prayer for deliverance is not motivated by concern about his own health or security but by his desire to advance the gospel. Knowing that his calling will lead to confrontation with those in Thessalonica or elsewhere who do not love Christ, Paul nevertheless boldly proclaims the truths and responsibilities of the gospel. He reminds his readers (and us) that the Lord is faithful and will establish and guard his people against the Evil One. Established on these glorious gospel truths of God’s faithfulness, Paul communicates his confidence that the Thessalonians and all true believers will do the things that Jesus Christ and his apostles command." - Gospel Transformation Bible

    The Inseparable, Unshakeable, Unending Love of God

    27/12/2020 Duración: 49min

    Romans 8:35-39 - Speaker: Jon Kopp - As we enter the last week of 2020 and look ahead to the unknowns of the next few months, what do we need to remember more than anything else? From Romans 8:35-39, the Apostle Paul would say, "the love of God." God is love, and that means that His love and all of His other attributes work in harmony. His love and His omniscience and omnipresence and omnipotence all come together in an unstoppable purpose to do His people good. (See also Romans 5:3-5, 8:28-30) In today's text, Paul asks a sweeping question and then answers it with unequivocal logic: "Can anything separate us from the love of God?" No! God is love, and that love is inseparable, unshakable, and unending for those who are in Christ Jesus. C.H. Spurgeon reminded us of this when he preached, "Before [any] of creation had struggled from nothingness, God, even our God, had set his heart upon all his children. Since that time, has he once swerved, has he once turned aside, once changed? No; you who have tasted of hi

  • Rejoicing in the Prince of Peace

    Rejoicing in the Prince of Peace

    20/12/2020 Duración: 38min

    Isaiah 9:1-7 - Speaker: Lukus Counterman - All the way back in Genesis 3, the Fall brought hostility, brokenness, and separation to human existence. But things would not always be ruined. People would not remain distant and harsh toward one another forever. A promised child, a Messiah would come to earth with healing in his wings. He would establish a Kingdom of peace and bring such restoration that the mountains and hills would burst into song. Peace would flow like a river. You can almost hear the rippling brook when Jesus said words like, “Peace be with you.” It seemed as though every time he preached the gospel, he was proclaiming “the good news of peace.” When Christ finally went to the cross, “the punishment that brought us peace was laid upon him.” So, this Christmas, let’s remember the Prince of Peace who offers reconciliation and rest for every aspect of life. (Isaiah 9:6-7a) “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be cal

    The Promised Savior

    Luke 2:1-21 - Speaker: Will Galkin - All of the promises of God are connected to Christ. Paul writes in 2 Corinthians 1:20, “For all the promises of God find their Yes in him.” We can rejoice that the promises of God are trustworthy and backed by His sovereignty. The King of the Universe works all things according to His plan. He is not threatened or thwarted by the schemes of man. When we consider the Good News of Christ coming to this earth to save sinners, we should worship. We ought to join with the angels and say, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased.”

  • Jesus is Our Hope for the Holidays

    Jesus is Our Hope for the Holidays

    06/12/2020 Duración: 53min

    Luke 2:22-35 - Speaker: Lukus Counterman - Christmas is a season of hope. Some are hoping to get that gift at the top of their list. Others are hoping to enjoy time with family and friends. Still others are just hoping for some peace, rest, or joy this season. The fact is most people are looking forward to something or someone at this time of year. Such was the case in Luke 2:22-35, where we encounter an old man filled with hope. But he wasn’t waiting for a present or some time off work. He wasn’t preparing for a visiting family member from out of town. He was hoping for the consolation of Israel. He wanted to see the Messiah before he died. Wrinkled, old Simeon longed for an encounter with Jesus. That was his Christmas hope. Is it yours this season? May the Lord transform our wish lists so that Jesus is our hope.

  • STEWARD - True Giving

    STEWARD - True Giving

    29/11/2020 Duración: 37min

    2 Corinthians 8:1-9 - Speaker: Jotham Manoranjan - In our passage today we are challenged by an extraordinary example of giving, by the churches of Macedonia, towards the relief of the church in Jerusalem. The passage provides insights as to why the Macedonians were able to give so generously, despite their own strife and poverty. We will see that giving is seldom tied to our surplus or lack of material wealth, but that true giving is something that is spurred on by the grace of God in our lives. Let this passage be an encouragement and reminder to us about the joy of giving and the freedom of giving in Christ.
