People (#2 of 5 in the “Good News” Sermon Series)

As it relates to the gospel, there are two main truths about people that we see in the Bible: We are made in God’s image (Genesis 1:26-27 with Genesis 9:6, James 3:9, Romans 8:29). We are sinners and our sin separates us from God (Genesis 3:8-10, Romans 6:23, Romand 3:10-22, Ephesians 2:1-5). Praise God that in each of these 4 sections of verses that talk about the seriousness of our sin before God, we see the hope of the gospel…

God (#1 of 5 in the “Good News” Sermon Series)

In Romans 1-4 we see the basics of the gospel, which answer basic questions about how to have a relationship with God; in other words, how to be “saved.” Who made us, and to whom are we accountable? (God) What is our problem? In other words, are we in trouble and why? (People) What is God’s solution to that problem? How has he acted to save us from it? (Christ) How do I—myself, right here, right now—how do I come…

Remember the Gospel – Nehemiah 13

The book of Nehemiah ends on a note of sadness and uncertainty as the people have failed in following God, again. This shows our desperate need for Christ as the Old Testament is silent for the next 400 years until Jesus comes. Today, we don’t have to wonder if God will remember us for good like it seems Nehemiah was wondering at the end of his life. The gospel gives us the promise that God is working ALL things for…

How to Help Joy Grow – Nehemiah 11-12

The Bible gives us many ways to help joy grow, but here are 3 of them from Nehemiah 11 and 12. We foster joy when we give ourselves to God (Neh. 11:1–12:26) We foster joy when we give our praise to God (Neh. 12:27–43) We foster joy when we give our gifts to God (Neh. 12:44–47)

Our Only Message & Our Only Hope

For our Annual Meeting day, Pastor Tim preached an updated message, on the same passage that he preached during one of his first Sundays as pastor at Northshire Baptist Church 3 1/2 years ago. He explains, “I wanted to plant my flag as pastor and say, ‘My ministry here will be about Jesus. He is our only message and the Holy Spirit is our only hope of reaching people with this message.’ I wanted our church to continue to have…

Bring the Book!

Bring the Book! – Nehemiah 8 Understand the Word of God (Nehemiah 8:1-8). Rejoice in the Word of God (Nehemiah 8:9-12). Obey the Word of God (Nehemiah 8:13-18).

3 Keys to Perseverance in God’s Work for the Glory of God

Nehemiah 6  –  3 Keys to Perseverance in God’s Work for God’s Glory 1) We must have a laser-focus on what God has called us to do. (Nehemiah 6:1-8) 2) Sometimes we need to pray less that God would change our situation, and pray more that God would change us in the situation. (Nehemiah 6:9) 3) Our motivation for perseverance must be the fear of the Lord, for the glory of God (Nehemiah 6:10-16)
