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 10:9“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.

"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

Romans 8:28 is probably the second most well-known and used verse in the evangelical Christian's Bible vocabulary. The big question is beyond do we know what it means. The biggest question is, do we believe it to be absolutely true in our lives and in the lives of others. Bill Ehlers presents us with this challenge to help us understand what...

1 Corinthians 11:23-32. Communion is a vital part of every church and Christian's life. It was instituted by Jesus Himself. We have been called to practice communion and to do it carefully. This care means we must take a deep look at ourselves, evaluate our motives and our reasons not just for what we do, but for whom we are participating.

When God had finished his creation work, he "took a Sabbath" from his work. When God put together the covenant with his people, Israel, he commanded them to "take a Sabbath" from their labours. When Jesus was on the earth, he told people to come to him, and he would give them "Sabbath". The Sabbath, like everything in the Law,...

There are many ways to share the good news of Jesus. Why not start with your own encounter with Jesus. He has done so much for you...so share it! Acts 26:1-29 This Sunday is also Baptism Sunday! The story of baptism is the story of Jesus' work for us and in us. Share it!

Salvation is free, but there is a cost to follow Jesus as His disciple. Our life is that: OURS. It is not to be ours as it was purchased by Jesus' own life to save us from our sins and the eternal punishment we deserve for being sinners. Our desire for preserving our comfort and doing our own thing only...

Jesus said, "Follow Me" to Simon Peter, John, James, Andrew and Levi. He gives the same call to each one of us. How will we respond?

Matthew 16:24-25 (NIV2011) "Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it." Salvation is free by grace and faith. There is a cost, though, to being...
