And so January has become a traditional time to rethink goals Sun, 09 Jan 2022 19:02:40 +0000 The Hour Has Come Jonathan Shumate Romans 13:11-14 We were saved for a purpose. Sun, 02 Jan 2022 18:41:08 +0000 Jesus as King Carter Sanger Psalm 10 We’ve been looking at what it means for Jesus to be the Christ, the anointed one, and considering the 3 main offices under the Old Testament covenant to which men were anointed to serve.

Jesus is announced as the savior to people helpless to save themselves. What, exactly, the people will be saved from is not included in the announcement; neither is the how. Yet Luke leaves us some important clues – clues that show us much about the people Sun, 28 Nov 2021 18:47:10 +0000 King Over All the Earth (Ps 47) Carter Sanger Psalm 47 Like any passage of Scripture, to best understand it requires you to read it from the perspective of those who originally heard it. This Psalm is a call to praise the Lord. We often use these psalms to open our worship services, with God calling us to clap and sing his praises. And Sun, 21 Nov 2021 19:07:34 +0000 Though the Earth Give Way (Ps 46) Carter Sanger Psalm 46 The opening of the Psalm gives us the theme, as most psalms tend to do. 1  God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

So this psalm will Sun, 14 Nov 2021 19:10:52 +0000 Let Me Sing You a Love Song (Ps 45) Carter Sanger Psalm 45 In a time when we look for ways to escape the dreariness of things happening in the world, this psalm is a much needed balm.

To read and meditate upon this psalm is like Sun, 07 Nov 2021 21:00:05 +0000 When the Pattern Breaks (Ps 44) Carter Sanger Psalm 44 Have you felt a sense of despair and a desire to quit everything at some time during the past couple of years? It seems like the Psalms beat this drum and perhaps the time in which we live makes us all the more in tune with it. And there are good reasons to Sun, 31 Oct 2021 18:52:45 +0000 The Thirsty Soul (Ps 42) Carter Sanger Psalm 42 Like so many of the psalms, this one is written about a time in great distress.

God isn’t after your money, he’s after your heart. But here’s the thing. You want to know where your heart is? Follow the money. Jesus makes this clear in his teaching on the Sermon Sun, 03 Oct 2021 17:52:24 +0000 Walk, Talk, Listen, Laugh Carter Sanger Deuteronomy 6 When my kids were younger and we would go to the movie, they knew the way home would be a conversation about it.

And whether Sun, 12 Sep 2021 18:19:54 +0000 In the Beginning Carter Sanger Genesis 2:5-24 When it comes to preparing for marriage, you have to know why marriage exists in the first place.
