In an emergency, when time is of the essence, compassionate people jump in to save those that they can, but at the same time call for help so that as many as possible can be rescued.  In Matthew 9 Jesus sees the multitudes harassed and helpless, in need of compassion and grace.  He recognizes the time is short as are the resources. He tells his followers to “Ask the Lord of the Harvest therefore, to send out workers into His har... Read more

For most of us work consumes the greatest portion of our lives. God gave us work as a gift and even warns us that if a person doesn’t work they shouldn’t eat. God can help you at work and reward you for your efforts. Your work truly does matter to God. Listen and be encouraged to grow in your faith and effectiveness at work. Pastor Chris Teien

The greatest day ever will be when Jesus returns - unless you haven't put your faith in Him. Jesus said He was coming back but He didn't specify when. The more we grow in our faith the more we long to see Jesus face to face. Life can get difficult when we are trying to live out His will for our lives and it can lead to hardships and conflicts. In James chapter 5 we are given some encouraging Scriptures to help us when it... Read more

While it’s easy to be happy and trust God while everything is working out according to our plans, mature Christ-followers count on life’s unpredictable timing and keep walking with Jesus even when it seems like life is falling apart. James helps us put our lives in perspective when he says, “Now listen, you who say, “’Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.’ Why, y...

The Bible warns us that our words matter. James writes, “And among all the parts of the body, the tongue is a flame of fire. It is a whole world of wickedness, corrupting your entire body. It can set your whole life on fire, for it is set on fire by hell itself.” (James 3:6 NLT). While words can be destructive, they can also be encouraging, edifying, educational, healing and helpful. Listen and be encouraged to control your tong... Read more

We know that we can’t do enough good deeds to get ourselves into Heaven, instead we repent and give our lives to Jesus to be saved and experience eternal life with Him. Some people think that faith is all that is required in the Christian life, but James makes it very clear that if you truly have faith it will be evident by the good deeds you do. Some complain that New Testament writers Paul and James contradict each other when ... Read more

If we are not careful it is easy to discount the value of people that are not like us or to give preference to rich and influential people over the poor and unknown. It must have been a problem in the early church too since James took time to warn them against doing that in the church and it is a relevant message for us today. When we learn to see people the way God sees them, we will enjoy greater relationships and be better ab... Read more

The most important and incredible event everyone needs is to have Jesus save them and fill their lives with hope and meaning. Maybe it’s easy to look back and see how empty your life would be without Jesus and you need to share that hope.

Jesus is the perfect hero who can work through you despite your shortcomings. You may not think you have much to offer or you may think you have made too many mistakes to be hero but listen and be encourage... Read more

God our Heavenly Father has made His design for marriage between one man and one woman clear in the Scriptures He gave us through the Holy Spirit and it was even spoken directly about by Jesus our Savior. While our society seeks to redefine marriage and everyone appears to want to do whatever seems right in their own eyes, Christians ignoring God’s original design for marriage is not wise and will lead to great disappointment.
