One Person with a Godly Perspective Can Make a Difference
Overcoming is not optional for living a successful life as a Christ-follower—it’s necessary. Pastor Allen reminds us that strength and courage are vital for a person of faith. We have access to all the strength and courage we need because our God is able. He’s the Creator of all things, who watches over the paths of nations and intervenes in human history. He doesn’t wring His hands in despair. Christ in us makes a difference—because our God is able!
How do you arrive at the place where you lack joy? It’s not about asset accumulation or emotional strength or intellectual vitality. It’s about the ability to consider it joy when you encounter various trials. Joy enables us to endure, to overcome, and to honor God with our lives. While most of us are purposeful about achieving happiness, Pastor Allen shares some steps toward cultivating joy.
Christmas, A Promise Fulfilled - The Power of Hope
Hope is a powerful force, and a life without hope is a miserable life. But sometimes we find ourselves in desperate places because we’ve put our hope in something or someone other than Jesus of Nazareth. He is the completely trustworthy and living Son of God, and hope anchored in Him reaches beyond time into eternity and invites His purposes to emerge in our lives.
