Have You Heard From God Lately?
Does God truly speak to people today? How do we know when it is Him speaking? Every person on a path to follow God asks these questions. In this message, Pastor Chris walks us through these queries, referencing Isaiah 30:19 & 21. He shows us five ways in which God speaks and gives us three practical things to do in order to hear from God. He also reminds us that the greatest aspect of prayer is not what we say to God, but what He says to us.

    Contentment In the Age of Consumerism
    We are inundated on all sides, everyday, with the temptation to accumulate more stuff, which robs us of contentment and convinces us that our happiness is based on how much of that stuff we have. Somehow, we must remind ourselves that the greatest things in life are not things at all and that God calls us to be content with what we currently have. To combat this pressure, Pastor Chris lays out three strategies from Hebrews 13:5 & 6 so that we can say, as Paul said, "I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content."

    Fear Not, Only Believe
    We all experience fear, some on a daily basis, ranging from mild attacks to panic attacks. It is meant to paralyze us, limit our faith, jeopardize our health and stifle our joy. Fear fights against the very critical aspect of faith that we are taught to live our lives by. So what is the antidote to fear? Pastor Chris gives us three points from the record of Jairus and the woman with the issue of blood we encounter in Luke 8:40 - 56.  We must learn to use this antidote and not allow fear to incapacitate us.

    The Way Out of Worry
    Everyone, to one degree or another, worries. We know, and studies have proven, that worry is emotionally, spiritually and even physically unhealthy. But what is the remedy? Reading from Matthew 6:25 - 34, Pastor Chris points out three practical observations that we can implement in our daily life. This will help us put our worries in the "God box" and allow Him to reign over our lives so we can rest in Him.

    When Faith Counts
    A question asked by most people is, "Why do we suffer?" In the crucible of life, in the face of unanswered questions, we can feel hopeless and despaired. But, in this message, Pastor Chris looks at the life of Job, a man intimately familiar with unanswered questions, and highlights what Job did in the midst of his turmoil and the eventual outcome. In the book of Job we do not see why the righteous suffer, but rather, what to do when they suffer and we see when faith really counts.

    The Confidence Component
    We need an anointing of confidence to do and to say what God has called us to and that confidence must be in God alone, not in a person. When we hear from God, it breeds a level of confidence the enables us to be bold for Him. In this message, Pastor Chris looks at the words of God to Joshua in Joshua 1:1 - 9 and the promises found there. We can also stand on those promises and be encouraged, as Joshua was, that God will never leave us or forsake us.

    O Wretched Man That I Am
    "When a man is getting better he understands more and more clearly the evil that is still left in him. When a man is getting worse he understands his own badness less and less." (C. S. Lewis) There is a false notion that if there is no God, we can have complete liberation; but in reality, we become enslaved to sin. In this message, Pastor Chris preaches from Romans 7, reminding us that we all have a flesh that wars against the Spirit. The only way to gain the victory in this war is through the power of Jesus Christ and His victory over sin.

    Not Forsaken
    As it seems that everywhere we turn, there is more bad news and chaos, we need to remain about the Master's business. That can seem like a daunting task until we remember the promise of God found in Psalm 9:10. In this message, Pastor Chris encourages us with that promise and reminds us that our job is to seek God; it is God's job to take care of us. And prayer, though it is not the only thing, is the chief thing.

    Prospering in the Famine
    In this current spiritual famine in which we find ourselves, we desperately need God and the leading of Holy Spirit. In this message, Pastor Chris takes us to Genesis 26, where we find Isaac prospering in the midst of a famine. Pastor Chris give us three points to learn from Isaac to help us prosper in the midst of the famine.

    The Remnant
    No matter what it may look like in these last days, God has always had and will always have a people, regardless of those who fall away. As Pastor Chris encourages from Joel 2, he points out that the remnant is not the "leftovers", but rather the seed of revival. Even though it may seem like no one else remains faithful to God and His Word, there is a remnant. And we must remember that the message of hope that we have must continue to be proclaimed and that the best is still ahead.
