God’s Grace is Sufficient
In 2 Corinthians 12:1-10 Paul speaks about his “thorn in the flesh.” While we do not know exactly what it was, Paul learned to see it as a tool in God’s hands to keep him humble. Rather than remove it, God had a better solution. Human weakness provides the ideal opportunity for the display of divine power. God’s power can shine through in our weakness. We will explore just how that can be and what that means.

Whose Approval Do You Seek?
In Mark 6:14-29 we learn that King Herod had John the Baptist beheaded in response to his daughter’s request. In doing so, he was acting to secure the approval of his wife and all of his guests. This act later came back to haunt him when he heard of all the miracles Jesus was doing. While there are numerous lessons we can gain from this, the one we will focus on is our attempts to win the approval of men when our focus needs to be on fact that in Christ, God’s approval rests on us. That is more important than anything else.

One in Christ
In Ephesians 2:11-22 the Apostle Paul tells us that all who put their faith and trust in Jesus are ONE. In Christ, God has destroyed all that would divide. We are all together citizens of God’s kingdom. In this message we will explore this truth and what it means as we live out our oneness with all who believe and trust in Jesus as their Savior.
