We live in a society full of fear today. Yet the Lord offers us freedom from fear because He is our Shepherd. Do you know Him? Can you say, “The LORD is MY Shepherd,” not just, “The LORD is A Shepherd?” I will not fear because the Lord is my Shepherd (vv. 1-3) I will not fear because the Lord is my Savior (vv. 4-5a) I will not fear because the Lord is my Sovereign (vv. 5b-6)
Building a Life of Prayer – Nehemiah 1:4 – 2:5 in series: Building a Life of Faith Nehemiah teaches us a lot about building a life of prayer.

We were having some microphone issues during the recording of this sermon…so you may need to turn up your speakers all the way! We are working on…
This sermon from Nehemiah 1 is the beginning of a new series, “Nehemiah: Building a Life of Faith.” We often think of God like we think of people–that He does not keep His promises because He doesn’t care, or because He forgot, or even that He was unable to. Nehemiah reminds us that God always keeps His promises. When the people of God work together and pray together for His glory, God’s Kingdom is built!

Mark 15:20-32 “It wasn’t the nails that kept Jesus there. It was love.” -Sally Lloyd-Jones, The Jesus Storybook Bible We see in Jesus’ crucifixion both His love and His lordship.
Mark 15:15-20 Why did Jesus die is a really important question. We can accept that He did die without being saved. But we can’t be saved without understanding why He died.
Pilate asked the question that every human being must answer, “What shall I do with Him whom you call King of the Jews?” What are you going to do with Jesus? That is why I ask, “Is Jesus your King?”
Mark 14:53-65 Jesus is saying to the high priest, “Today I stand before you—but there is coming a day when you will stand before Me in judgment! When you woke up this morning, did you remember that Jesus stands at the right hand of the Father for you if you know Him as your Savior? Mom who feels like a failure for whatever reason, did you remember this morning that Jesus stands right now by the Father’s side to intercede…
Mark 14:43-52 God didn’t take a day off from being God when Jesus was arrested.
The recording begins about 7 minutes into the sermon. Mark 14:32-42 The first Adam was in a perfect garden in a perfect world and he failed.
