Worship

Matthew’s Gospel: Obedience

We are told only that he came to Jesus as a turning point in his life. “Teacher, I will follow You wherever You go.”

Matthews Gospel: Building

To follow Christ and live in relationship with Him is not to live a life without storms. Storms come to everyone. Rains descend on everyone. Winds beat against and flood waters rise on everyone. The difference is in the foundation.

Matthew’s Gospel: Fruit

”All of life is a stage.”
 So said Shakespeare and it is true. People present themselves to the world as if they occupied a permanent proscenium. For so many this is empty theatrics, a carefully choreographed illusion with no substance beyond self, no message except ”me” and no content but conceit.

The Only Love That Makes Sense

Such love. That was what brought me to tears. Such peace at having my Heavenly Father direct my steps. That’s what had caused my emotional outpouring.

Winds of Change

She lifts her hands Extended, palms open-Completely letting go

Song Feature: Raise a Hallelujah

We don’t just praise Him when life is going well or when we’ve made it through the trial we endured. We lift up our hallelujah in the middle of the storm, knowing He’s there with us.

The Invitation

A powerful lesson is tucked, half-hidden in these verses. It wasn’t during prayer or sermon that the glory of God fell in that place, but during worship.
