Untrained and Filled

Speaker: Al Stoltzfus
Topics: community, Gospel, Holy Spirit, Jesus

One man’s physical healing becomes a picture of the salvation offered to all in Jesus (Acts 3). Though untrained, Peter and John were filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke boldly in the name of Jesus. In spite of fierce opposition, multitudes of men and women were added to the Lord as the church was on the road to the ends of the earth. Text: Acts 3-5

How to give two life-sustaining gifts to your children

Speaker: Al Stoltzfus
Topics: correction, Direction, parenting, Worship

Parenting is hard work. To parent well requires wisdom. Proverbs, the book of wisdom, invites us to consider two life-sustaining gifts wise parents pass on to their children. What are these two vital gifts? And how, in the daily realities of parenting, can we pass these two gifts to their children. The answer may surprise you.  Text: Proverbs 1:8; 22:6; 19:18 and 14:26; Ephesians 6:4

Savior

Speaker: Al Stoltzfus
Topics: believe, delays, deliverance, eternal life, Trust

In the wilderness, God gives His rebellious and vulnerable people a sign and a remedy. To look on the bronze serpent was to live. In the same way Jesus is the one we must believe in to live.    Text: Numbers 21:4-9; John 3:10-21

Carrier

Speaker: Al Stoltzfus
Topics: destruction, Grace, Obedience, righteousness, Salvation, sin

The extent of evil and violence in the human heart and the corruption which fills the earth grieves the heart of God (Gen 6:5-12). So He finds a righteous man, and by the obedience of that righteous man, God rescues and renews all of creation.  Text: Genesis 6:11-22, 7:13-17, 8:15-17; Romans 5:19

Restored Faithfulness

Faithfulness is integral to the character of God. This quality of faithfulness is what God desires in the most intimate of human relationships, between and husband and wife in the home. To restore a heart of worship, we must guard our affections by grounding our actions and behavior in the character and faithfulness of God.  Text: Malachi 2:10-16

What if there was no Christmas?

Speaker: Al Stoltzfus
Topics: Fear, God with us, Peace, promise of Immanuel, Trust

In a particularly dark time, God gives an enduring promise and a truth for His people to live into. This promise is in the name Immanuel, God-with-us. A promise which finds fulfillment in Jesus. This story leaves us with the question, “In whom are we trusting?” Because God is with us, we can face difficult and discouraging times.  Text: Isaiah 7:1-8:10
