    "Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us." Forgiveness is a daily necessity, like bread for our souls. It's not about forgetting but releasing resentment. Holding grudges hurts us more than those who wronged us. God's grace empowers us to forgive beyond human limits. Forgiveness brings healing, restoration, and spiritual growth.

    "Give us this day our daily bread." This simple prayer holds a profound truth: We're all in this together. When we pray this, we don't just pray for "my" bread, but for "our" bread. When we have more than enough, we're called to be the answer to someone else's prayer. In a world of plenty, we're asked to create a community where everyone has enough. That's how we build God's kingdom on earth.

    We pray “Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven," in the Lord's Prayer. God’s Kingdom isn’t a distant place but His reign, values, and presence in our lives right now. Jesus said, “The kingdom of God is in your midst.” (Luke 17:21). It’s about living out God’s love, justice, and peace here and now. We’re called to reflect these values in our lives, making God’s Kingdom a present reality.

    June 16th, 2024 - Sermon

    This message talks about the opening lines of the Lord's Prayer, 'Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.' We learn that addressing God as 'Our Father' emphasizes our interconnectedness as God's children, transcending differences and reminding us to pray with a sense of community. The parable of the prodigal son illustrates the depth of God's fatherly love, which surpasses the limitations of earthly fathers. We discover that God is omnipresent, not confined to a specific place and that we can see Him in our daily lives and interactions. The sermon explores the significance of hallowing God's name and recognizing His unparalleled holiness and greatness. By living in alignment with the gospel, we magnify God's glory to the world, just as a microscope or telescope reveals the true vastness and beauty of creation. Ultimately, we are inspired to let our lives be a living testament to God's presence, allowing others to glorify our Heavenly Father through our actions.

    Today's message reminds us that change is an inevitable part of life's journey, filled with joys, sorrows, and uncertainties. However, we can find comfort and strength in the unwavering love and presence of God. The scriptures from Deuteronomy 31:6 and Romans 8:38-39 assure us that God will never leave or forsake us, and that nothing can separate us from His love in Christ Jesus. We are excited for Teresa Brent to be bringing the message!

    The sermon explored the story of Gideon from the Book of Judges, illustrating how God can use even the weakest and most powerless among us to accomplish His great purposes. Despite Gideon's doubts and feelings of inadequacy, God called him a "mighty warrior" and promised to be with him always. It's a reminder that our strength doesn't come from ourselves, but from trusting in a God who has our back and believes in us.

Tanblonde ,

Love the clarity I get from listening and at the ease of your own schedule!

I really love this podcast! It’s getting me to church without having to physically be there. I have a busy life and seem to come up with excuses to not go to church. This helps me stay on track. I love his sermons and that he applies a modern feel to them. He applies situations really well so you can remember the lesson and understand it easily. I think He’s really funny too so it helps keep your attention. I really enjoy listening and wait for the next one to upload weekly. Thank you for helping bring God closer to my heart again and making this podcast! Please don’t stop them anytime soon!
