Faith and it’s actions

Speaker: Rodney Horst
Topics: actions, Faith

James says that a person is justified by what they do and not by faith alone. Is this a contradiction in Scripture? Why? A reminder that Christ is the focal point and foundation of our faith. Two examples of faith in action are Abraham and Rahab. The Christian life is not about doing things in our own strength – rather it is about God working in and through us.  Text: James 2:14-26

Prayer, Not Despair

Speaker: Rodney Horst
Topics: anxiety, prayer

How has the current health crisis affected you? Has it raised your anxiety level? In Philippians 4:6 the Apostle Paul provides a road map out of the valley of fret, worry and anxiety. This involves prayer, petition and presenting our specific requests to God with thanksgiving. It involves acknowledging God’s Sovereignty and counting the blessings we have already been given.  Text: Philippians 4:4-8

His Eye is on the Sparrow

Speaker: Rodney Horst
Topics: God's Presence, God's promises, God's watchful care

Throughout life we may feel discouraged as we face troubles and difficult times. Yet we can know that God is always with us and watching over us just as his eye is on the sparrow. We can rest in the promises of God in Psalm 139 and throughout scripture as we face these uncertainties of life.  Text: Matt. 10:29-31, Psalm 139

He Wore a Crown of Thorns for You and Me

Speaker: Rodney Horst
Topics: Good Friday, palm sunday, sufferings of Christ

Jesus knew the crowds that were shouting Hosanna to the King, would soon be shouting crucify him – yet nothing could deter him from his mission to bring about our salvation. Reflect on Christ’s suffering for us. Why did he do it? Because of his great love for us – he came to be the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.  Text:  (Various) Luke 9:21

Gotta Have Faith

The account of the fig tree withering is a teachable moment for the disciples on the power of faith. What is faith? How is it pleasing to God? Fight the good fight of the faith.  Text: Mat. 21:18-22, Heb. 11:1-6, I Tim. 6:12-16
