What's on your mind? Confusion? Fear? Worry? Frustration? These feelings are real, but they aren't helpful to you or anyone else. Philippians 4:4-9 has some great counsel on how to move your mind into a godly place, where you can not only help yourself, but do good to others.

John 11:25-26 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.” (John 11:25-26) Jesus spoke these powerful declarations to a heartbroken sister whose brother had just died. She told Jesus that if He had been there, her...

John 10:11-18 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.” (John 10:11) Sheep and shepherds were commonly known and understood concepts in Jesus’s culture (which is probably why Jesus chose this metaphor). Just like our dog or cat knows our voice, sheep know their shepherd’s voice (John 10:3-5). Sheep want safety, pasture,...

John 10:9“I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.” (John 10:9) Right before this verse, Jesus stated, “All who ever came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them” (John 10:8). Clearly, Jesus is teaching that He is the only way to salvation,...

Then Jesus declared, ‘I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.’” (John 6:35) Like in many cultures, bread was a staple in the diet of the Jewish people, and when Jesus said that He was the “bread of life,” He was saying that, as...

Baptism is the outward demonstration of the inward reality of Jesus' dying for our sins and rising from the dead to give us new life. It also illustrates how, through Jesus, we died to our own sin and were born again by the Holy Spirit into new life through faith in Jesus.

Grace and Mercy come from God, we still battle with sin and yet, God, in his grace and mercy, comes to us personally and eternally to keep us on track. Galatians 5:16-25 tells us how to "walk in the Spirit", which means we are to completely surrender and submit to God's way in our lives. Walking in the Spirit is...

"But, I Have a Sin Problem." The previous two weeks had to do with grace, mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ's person and work. It seems that we should be in perfectly condition now. But, we keep sinning? Is it just me? Even the Apostle Paul recognized that we continue to battle with our sin. In Romans 7:14-25 we find...

"Because you're forgiven". It is continuing from the message on the 5th of, "Be Better". 1 John 1:5-2:4 says we're in fellowship with God and with other, cleansed from our sins and having a strong testimony because we're forgiven through the work of Jesus Christ. All of His work results in us being forgiven.

It's the New Year. Time to make some resolutions. The resolutions inevitably are to make you a better person. So you DO lots in order to BE a better person. Unfortunately we fail. Why? Because we are not the people we need to BE in order to DO things well. Only God can change us...and He will, through all...

From darkness in our thinking to clarity about the truth of Jesus. Every person is unclear about Jesus, the Bible, The Holy Spirit and God. We are constantly unsure of right and wrong, good and evil. Some live as if ignorance is bliss while others spin their mental wheels trying to figure it all out. This darkness in our thinking...

From sinful actions to righteous actions in Jesus. The coming of Jesus is the greatest act of greatest good. Because of Jesus, light fills our lives and we then act according to Jesus' Light, rather than the darkness of our old life. Psalm 82:5, Romans 8:11-14

At Christmas time, one of the most famous ancient prophetic Bible verses we read comes from Isaiah 9:2, where the prophet says that the people walking in darkness have seen a great light. What is darkness? What is light? #albcgreatlight

Three people chosen by God. Three invitations from God. Three responses to God. The invitations and how they responded directly affect us today. The same invitation is made by God to us. How will we respond? #albcgreatlight
