Lenten Devotional – SATURDAY

We all know that Christ died on Friday, and on Sunday he rose from the dead, but what happened on the day in between? For our final devotion of this Lenten season, let us pause to ponder, some events that the Bible only hints at… and wonder what they mean. Speaker: Pastor Robert Barnes Scripture:...

Lenten Devotional – BETRAYAL

We all know the story: the story of how one of Jesus’ disciples betrayed him with a kiss. Judas was the bad guy, and we would never be like him. But was he so uniquely evil and weak? That is a question for all of us to ponder. So, take a few moments and listen...

Lenten Devotional – WHY FIGS MATTER

Many of us never think of figs unless we are buying a particular brand of cookie. In Jesus’ day, however, figs were both an important food and a symbol of God’s blessing; all of which makes it striking that Jesus once cursed a fig tree for not bearing fruit. What does that mean to us?...

Lenten Devotional – YOU ARE THE TEMPLE

One of the most startling truths of the Christian faith is that God does not only want us to believe in Him. He wants to live in us, through the indwelling of His Spirit. In today’s devotion, Dorinda Amissah challenges us with the reality of those words and the Bible’s claim that if we are...

Lenten Devotional – WORSHIP THE KING

Sometimes, we are not certain of why it is important to worship God. After all, if God was hungry, he wouldn’t ask us for food (Psalm 50:12), so surely, he doesn’t need our praises.

Sermons

Lenten Devotional – REPENTANCE

It is often preached that because of Jesus, God will accept us as we are. That much is largely true, but what comes next? We Christians obviously are not perfect, so does God expect us to change after we become a Christian? Or does the fact that he forgives us of our sins, mean that...

Lenten Devotional – SORROW

If you are a Christian and you don’t feel happy all the time, are you a failure at faith? If you are a Christian, and sometimes your faith makes you feel like something is wrong, does that mean there is something wrong with God? Today and tomorrow, Pastor Barnes takes on some common misconceptions about...

Lenten Devotion : Amazing Grace

Dorinda Amissah (ddamissah) offers today’s devotion.   John 13:37-38 Peter asked, “Lord, why can’t I follow you now? I will lay down my life for you.”38 Then Jesus answered, “Will you really lay down your life for me? Very truly I tell you, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times!
