God’s Beautiful Symphony

The church is like a symphony. When we’re in tune, we make beautiful music together, but when we aren’t, it can get ugly. Jesus knew that there would be conflicts among Christians, that’s why He gave us three four steps to follow to bring about reconciliation.


Repairing Fractured Friendships

In our consumer-driven culture, we tend to work harder to accumulate possessions than we do friendships. But people matter more to God than anything else. Have you discovered people are much more valuable than things? When you do you’ll cherish friendships and relationships and do anything you can to maintain them, and to repair the ones that are broken.


The Great Exchange

God does more than simply remove our sins—that’s only half of the exchange. God gives us the righteousness of Christ.


I’m Not What I Used to Be…

Why are we alienated from God? Because of our evil thinking and behavior. We are all born with a sin problem. The reason we act evil is because our minds are evil. We are both mentally and morally bankrupt before God. How many of you have ever told a lie? Hold up your hand. Those of you who didn’t hold up your hand are lying right now! How many lies does it take to make a liar? Just one. We aren’t liars because we lie–we lie because we are liars. You can never become a Christian until you’re willing to admit you are a sinner who is separated from God.


From Rejection to Reconciliation

God has not rejected his people, the Jews. Today the gospel, the good news of Jesus Christ, and Christianity is embraced more by Gentiles (that’s who we are) than Jewish people, yet the Bible still says God is not through with the nation of Israel.
