Unshakable Joy: “Joy Drives Away our Fear” - Lance Richards
Instead of rushing to the nativity this year, we are spending a time with the prophets. Which isn’t exactly everyone’s favorite! They can be a downer.
But the joy the prophets speak about is a hope that we can cling to in the darkness, in good times and in bad. A joy that is unshakable.
The Goodness Of God: “The Lord, Our King, Is Good to All” - Lance Richards
Lance finishes our series on The Goodness Of God - just in time for Thanksgiving - and explains what it means to praise the Lord “from prayer to prayer.”
He wants us to ask ourselves, “how are you blessing the name of the Lord?”
Praise is the work of God’s people.
The Goodness of God: “Taste And See That The Lord Is Good” - Lance Richards
Sometimes we wonder when we pray - does God hear us, does God see us? What does it mean to “taste and see that the Lord is good?”
There’s a quote Lance has been considering: “In prayer we act like people, in praise we act like angels.” As he continues his series on the goodness of God, he dives deeper into the need to praise God’s name.
The Goodness Of God: “Dwelling In The House of the Lord Forever” - Lance Richards
The word “goodness” has been running through Lance’s mind this season, as the news turns grim. As we begin a new series, he walks through Psalm 23 and reminds us of the faithful promises of God.
As we walk through the difficulties of daily life, Lance urges us to look closely at the paths we are led down. Where are you going? Who is shepherding you?
Multiply: “Commitment Sunday” - Lance Richards
Giving generously can cause anxiety - after all, we think, if we give away too freely, what if we don’t have enough? But in Corinthians, Paul is trying to tell us that the grace of God is more precious than any possession we can have. And when we give generously, we reflect the very nature of God.
God doesn’t sow sparingly, he sows bountifully. That’s the very nature of God, to give abundantly.
2 Corinthians 9:6-15
Multiply: Excel in Generosity - Lance Richards
AMA is what I’ve always wanted from church leadership
The AMA podcasts are particularly thought-provoking and inspiring. I love hearing Andy, Brandi, and everyone else discuss tough issues and relate everything back to the church and the gospel. Listening to these is truly a faith building experience regardless of your denomination.
Solid podcasts of some great messages from this church. I don’t attend but like the care they take in crafting these episodes.
