The Ascension of Jesus Christ
Series: Easter 2022
The ascension of Jesus Christ was the visible bridge between his earthly and heavenly ministries on our behalf.  In this message we seek to gain a greater understanding of his ascension which will lead us to a stronger commitment to him and a deeper worship of him.
 
Almost everything (if not everything) that we value and treasure in our walk with God has a connection to the ascension of Jesus Christ.  It is why we can live confidently and courageously in this present age.

    Series: Easter 2022
    In this message we’re going to take a sweeping look at Jesus’ final few days on earth.  There are 3 things that stand out as Jesus approached the events of the crucifixion.  We see that Jesus 1) Equipped & Prepared – He trained His disciples and prepared them for what He was going to do.  When it came time, He 2) Engaged the Problem – He met it head on, laying down His life to save ours.  And, once He was in the fight, He 3) Executed the Plan – He stuck to the plan as His Father had given it to Him.
     
    Jesus died for your sins and rose again to offer you eternal life with Him.

    Extravagant Love
    Series: Easter 2022
    The Bible is full of verses in which God assures us that He loves us. He shows us His love by what He says, by what He has done, and by the time He offers to spend with us.  What is our response?  How do we love God in return?  Do we tell Him?  Do we do things to show Him?  Do we make a priority out of spending time with Him?
     
    In Mark 14:3-9 we see one woman’s amazing expression of love toward Jesus.  This extravagant love is met with two different reactions on the parts of those who witnessed it.  First we see an antagonistic evaluation of love by those nearby.  But, then we see Jesus accept and endorse this love.
     
    We should love our Lord without limits.

    Determined to Obey
    Series: Psalm 119
    Obedience is hard!  One of the problems we face is that for as much as we may want to obey, we still struggle to do so consistently.  This leaves us questioning ourselves, thinking things like, "How can I obey more consistently when obedience is so hard?  What kind of things can help me in my quest to obey?"
     
    In this section of Psalm 119 , we find our author making strong, personal commitments to obedience.  As he does so, he lays out 3 things that can help us here.  Our obedience can be helped by: 1) Acknowledging God’s Guidance; 2) Enduring rimes of distress; and 3) Remembering What We Have Received.
     
    Let’s commit to faithful obedience and acknowledge God’s help in it.

    Improving Your Spiritual I.Q.
    Series: Psalm 119
    It’s good to be smart, but it’s better to be wise, because wisdom knows to use those smarts.  It should go without saying that if we are after wisdom, there is no better person to get it from that God Himself.  Yes, He’s smart, He knows everything, but He’s also wise, doing all things perfectly.  
     
    Psalm 119 is a wonderful source of wisdom, helping us to improve our spiritual I.Q.  There are 4 things that show up in verses 97-104 regarding Godly wisdom.  Our author shows us: 1) the Key to Godly Wisdom; 2) the Measure of Godly Wisdom; 3) the Goal of Godly Wisdom, and 4) the Enjoyment of Godly Wisdom.
     
    A love for God’s Word leads to growth in Godly wisdom.

    Rock-Solid Stability
    Series: Psalm 119
    Most of us like things that are dependable.  For as much as your dog or your garbage disposal may fit that description, there is one who really is the definition of dependability – God Himself.  God is faithful.  In this section of Psalm 119, our author encourages himself with reminders of God’s faithfulness: 1) God’s faithfulness is demonstrated in His Creation; and 2) God's faithfulness is discovered in His Word.
     
    God’s sufficiency is more than a match for our sufferings.

    Hanging On When You’re at the End of Your Rope
    Series: Psalm 119
    When we are going through difficult times in our lives, it can feel hard to persevere.  The author of Psalm 119 certainly knew this to be true.  Yet, in the midst of his dark time, there were still rays of hope that shined through, reminding him that all was not lost.
     
    As the psalmist wrestles through difficult times, he helps us understand 3 things about perseverance.  He helps us to see: 1) What Makes Perseverance Difficult; 2) What Makes Perseverance Necessary; and 3) What Makes Perseverance Possible.
     
    Remember God’s promises, and be real as you pray for the strength to persevere.

    Hope & Purpose Amidst Affliction
    Series: Psalm 119
    In Psalm 119:73-80, our author works from both ends to the middle, expressing his concerns and ultimately getting to his heart's chief desire.  Beginning with the outside verses, the psalmist expresses 1) His desire for Christian maturity. Moving in one level, he expresses 2) His concern for fellowship with other believers. The next circle encompasses 3) His experiences with affliction. And finally at the core of this passage are what the psalmist recognizes as 4) His deepest needs.
     
    Pray for God’s comfort & compassion during difficult circumstances, and pray that you might be a blessing to other believers in the process.

    The Discipline Factor of Discipleship
    Series: Psalm 119
    As much as we would prefer not to acknowledge it – discipline is a part of discipleship.  God sometimes allows affliction to come into our lives in order to drive us toward Him. 
     
    The author of Psalm 119 looks at this wonderful paradox from 3 directions: 1) He looks back at his life, evaluating the Products of Past Affliction – 2) He looks at his current circumstances and sees God’s Preservation through Present Affliction – and 3) He concludes by taking an inward look, determined to Maintain a Proper Perspective on Affliction.
     
    Depend on God not only to bring you through difficult times, but to grow you through them.

    Focused & Following
    Series: Psalm 119
    Most people don’t plan to fail, but, many fail to plan.  The author of Psalm 119 clearly had a desire to be obedient to God, and in this section of the Psalm, we see some of the plans he had made to help him do so.   We learn 3 things about planning in these verses: 1) Planning for Obedience Requires Focus; 2) We Must Plan for Obedience Around Frustrations; and 3) Planning for Obedience is Aided by Fellowship.
     
    Thank God for His provision, and plan to obey Him with everything you’ve got.
