Mystery of Abiding – Can We Be ‘Cut Off’ From Christ? ( + bonus Rapture Response)

abidingMystery of Abiding –  Can We Be Cut Off From Christ? ( + bonus Rapture Response)

Today we talk a little bit about ‘the christian escape’ theory called “the Rapture”, but only for a few minutes, it is time to call out the fear messages and replace them with Hope and Love.  THEN, we dig into John 15, where a portion of this text has often been used to club people into submission or else ‘they will get ‘cut off’ from Christ” and lose their salvation.  Today you will hear a MUCH BETTER message of hope and encouragement on this text which should reveal even MORE of the Father’s heart towards you.  Enjoy!!

You may have heard God loves you, but did you know He LIKES you too.  The message the ‘typical’ church sends to the world is that God is really ticked and his anger is building…well….that God doesn’t even EXIST!! And we wonder why people feel condemned by the message ‘the church’ seems to send.

Let’s share the GOOD NEWS for all people TO all people!  God loves EVERYBODY!  No one is excluded!  That is good news!! Now believe it!!  For more info, visit:

In The Eye Of The Storm: Moving From Fear To Faith PT 2

How do we trust in God when the Storms of life come our way.  Maybe we can learn from those who have gone before us.  Perhaps we need to stop listening to the voices of those who don’t reflect the Love of God.  Disasters have been called ‘an act of god’ but the only act of God in a disaster is his love.  Love is an ‘Act Of God”….and it shows up through people caring for and helping other people.  Enjoy this encouraging message as we find ‘light’ in the middle of darkness.

Hope, Heaven, Hell & the Afterlife

hope heaven hellHope, Heaven, Hell & the Afterlife:  How Much Do We ‘Really’ Know?

Today we begin the journey into this subject beginning with the most important foundation.  This foundation becomes the lens through which all these topics must be viewed.   After 27 years of Pastoral Ministry, I’ve come to find a far more ‘hope-filled’ perspective on these big topics.  Enjoy part one as I share some hope for those who have lost loved ones, even hope for those who have committed suicide.

How To Impact The World Around you – In A Culture Obsessed With “selfies”, YOUTUBE stardom, & ‘being the next Idol’

making a differenceHow To Impact The World Around you – In A Culture Obsessed With “selfies”, YOUTUBE stardom, & ‘being the next Idol’.

Religion says “it’s up to you”, Grace says “it’s up to Christ In You”.  The things we now ‘do’ we do from the place of rest.  The motivation isn’t ‘to make a difference’ instead, making a difference is the result of abiding in Christ and walking in the recognition of his ever-present life and wisdom in you.  It is not about ‘you have to’, but instead, ‘you get to’ participate in what God is already doing.  Enjoy the final message in this four part series!!

Making A Difference – In A Culture Obsessed With “selfies”, YOUTUBE stardom, & ‘being the next Idol’

Trying to make a mark in this world with ulterior motives, trying to make yourself look good, get the promotion by manipulating the process or people is not the way to live true life.   Stop looking for the BIG impact, instead learn to listen to the voice of light and life within you to initiate ‘plays or conversations’ that will impact someone’s life!  It is in the everyday activities that our UNION with Christ will make an impact whether we plan for it or not.  If we listen and wait, we will enjoy the journey of participating in the great dance (the dance of love and relationship within the Trinity).  Enjoy this practical and encouraging message!

Trying To Make A Difference – In A Culture Obsessed with Stardom and Heroes. PART 2

Stressing to impress 2Trying To Make A Difference – In A Culture Obsessed with Stardom and Heroes. PART 2

It is amazing to see so many individuals ‘trying’ to become ‘The new breakthrough star’ on Facebook, YouTube, small business, online ministry, etc. The hunger is not a bad thing, but each person really does need to have an honest look at what their motives are. Most often, they are selfish and they are really trying to make themselves feel like they are a ‘somebody’ when deep down they feel like a ‘nobody’.

Today we zoom in a bit closer at our motives for wanting to make a difference, but also at the source how we actually make an impact. The good news is this, you are already making a difference and you have within you the power to impact people and the future each day. Take a look at this message and see if you can hear the difference between ‘the worlds’ method vs how Christ has already equipped us.

You may have heard God loves you, but did you know He LIKES you too. The message the ‘typical’ church sends to the world is that God is really ticked and his anger is building…well….that God doesn’t even EXIST!! And we wonder why people feel condemned by the message ‘the church’ seems to send.
