Show Notes

Chris Wall • Isaiah 9:6-7 ESV
Our church and community are still in the throes of navigating unusual tensions and growing uncertainty. With this in mind, the simple prayer – “Lord Remind Me” of Christmas is incredibly powerful. We are living through a time when people are searching for lasting hope. The message of Christmas is the exact opposite of a hopeless message. It is a devastating thing to be hopeless. As human beings, we are wired to be forward looking. This is a natural thing for all human beings. God reveals to us in Ecclesiastes 3:11 that God has woven a sense of eternity into the heart of all people. Lasting hope is discovered through the story of Christmas. It is this reason; God is using His word to “Remind Us” of both the meaning and the call of Christmas. The miracle of the birth, life, death, and resurrection of Christ remains the focal point of human history. It is also the most significant expected surprise for humanity. God came in the flesh humbling Himself providing salvation to people from every tribe and tongue. Jesus came at Christmas to seek and save the lost. Salvation is every person’s greatest need. Jesus entered the world to save ALL who would come to Him. This Christmas, I am praying: “Lord Remind Me” of the reason you came into this world.

Warning - The Gradual Drift

Chris Wall • Nehemiah 13 ESV All through history, followers of Christ have experienced the consistent temptation to drift from the Lord. Every time this drift begins, God is faithful to get in our way. Over and over again, we are learning to respond quickly and gratefully to confrontation. It is best to respond with humility and repentance when God uses Hisword or a brother/sister to confront us. We are also learning to boldly confront others, allowing God to use our lives to push one another to live faithfully. Our human story shows us confrontation will always be necessary. For believers in Jesus who have been born again, confrontations should result in humble repentance, sincere apologies, and strengthened relationships. Nehemiah 13 helps us see how to avoid drifting away fromthe Lord. ...

Live Up to Your Name

Chad Balthrop • 1 Peter 1:17-25 NKJV It doesn’t seem fair. The food that tastes the best is bad for us. The things we want to buy are more than we can afford. The life we’ve always wanted seems just outside our reach. Yet God reminds us. There’s more to this life than this moment. Every minor decision paves the way to monumental mistakes or builds memories that tell a story you can’t wait to read again. By the grace of God, your life has been transformed. You don’t have to live by the world’s rules anymore. You’ve received a noble name and with it come all the promises of God. ...
