Miracles // A Man Born Blind
If you see the miracle of healing or the miracle of salvation and stop there, you will miss out on the most profound and dangerous adventure with God. Pastor Jimmy speaks on the healing of the blind man in John 9 and two types of blindness – blindness of the natural and blindness to the spiritual. When we come face to face with Jesus— when we see Him for Who He is— we can face the world and ourselves honestly. When we truly see Jesus, we can fall at His feet and worship the only One Who can teach us how to see.
Miracles // When God Says No
One of the big questions many of us have when we think of miracles is why God says “Yes” to some miracles and “No” to others? Despite your best efforts, your fervent prayers, and your pleadings with a God who is supposed to be good and powerful, He doesn’t come through the way you so desperately wanted Him to. What we learn through Pastor Rob's sermon is that sometimes God’s no to something we desperately want means a yes to what we desperately need. He wants you to know that He didn’t say “no” to that thing you so desperately wanted Him to do because He doesn’t care, but because He’s doing something bigger. He came so that you wouldn’t perish, but have everlasting life. Resurrection life.
Miracles // The Miracle of Palm Sunday
On Palm Sunday 2021, Grace Chapel's Founding Pastor, Steve Berger, returns to the pulpit to bring a word on the miraculous timing surrounding the events of Palm Sunday. We see that Jesus, the long-awaited Messiah of the world entered Jerusalem on a donkey, and for the first time allowed Himself to be publicly recognized and worshipped as the Messiah on the exact day it was prophesized in Daniel 9.
Miracles // Take Up Your Bed
Miracles // Take Up Your Bed is a journey through the story of the man lying at the pool of Bethesda - a man who has been lame for 38 years! Jesus asks him a seemingly obvious question, "Do you want to be healed?" and the man responds with excuses. What happens to many of us is we get comfortable in our infirmities and we don’t actually want to put in the effort that would be required to get better – oftentimes the pain of recovery is worse than the pain of the thing that put us in the situation we’re making excuses about and blaming other people for. For some, we need to make the effort of "taking up our mat and walking" and for others, God may not change your circumstance, but wants to change you in the midst of it!
Miracles // Help My Unbelief
In Miracles // Help My Unbelief, Pastor Rob unpacks a story in Mark 9 that highlights the wrestle between faith and doubt - it is the story of the father who brings his son to the disciples, who cannot cast out the demon who is possessing and causing this boy seizures and muteness. What we learn is that the prerequisite for a miracle is an impossible situation and that anything is possible to him who believes. If you find yourself in an impossible situation today, you are in the perfect position for God to break into your life with a miracle!
The Great Opportunity // Pastor Dave Buehring
Pastor Dave Buehring brings a great word on being a disciple-maker in whatever vocation God has called you to. Pastor Dave just released a new book, The Great Opportunity, which takes us beyond the knowledge that our faith should impact our work and shows us how and why to make disciples among those who share the same vocation.
Grace Chapel : House of love and truth!
I have been listening to Grace Chapel, Pastor Steve Berger, and the ministry team there for years. Their ministry is unsurpassed in teaching biblical truths, and living out the Gospel. I highly recommend!
solid truth week after week
There are not many churches who have great solid truth preached with such consistency as Grace Chapel. Pastor Steve is an awesome preacher, but we have so many other great preachers like Jimmy, Dave and Ian. Not to mention the guest preachers who are exceptional.
I’m from Miramar Florida I enjoy listening to Pastor Steve Burger because he rightly divides the word of God. Doctrinally sound church. Blessings.
