Our church family here is a loving, close-knit group of Christians trying our best to live for Christ. We’re not perfect, of course, but we’re striving each day to let God’s Word be our guide for everything we do—in everyday life, at work, at school, at church. . . everywhere. Many of us come from different backgrounds, and we work in various fields, but we share a common love for Jesus Christ and His church and look for opportunities to share that love with others.

Maybe you’ve realized there’s a void in your life, like something’s missing. This podcast is for you. It’s filled with non-threatening content, that is easy to understand. We would love for you to join us someone for a simple worship service where we’ll reflect on what Jesus Christ has to say to our lives.

    The Beast That Crouches at the Door

    The Beast That Crouches at the Door

    What happens when we try to redefine good and evil on our own . . . when we live our lives “east of Eden”?
    After observing the Fall of humanity in Genesis 3, we don’t have to wait long to see the effects on the human race. Cain–motivated by anger, jealousy, and fear–murders his brother Abel, and a disheartening trajectory is established.
    When you read the story carefully, you’ll notice quite a few parallels with the Fall narrative (God’s questioning, the need to “rule” over desire, “cursed from the ground,” “ground” that begrudgingly yields its fruit, Cain’s being sent away from the presence of the Lord, etc.).
    It paints a picture of a new, tarnished world, one where sin crouches at the door like a beast . . . where humanity’s fear leads to anger and jealousy and violence.
    And yet it’s also one in which we can choose to “do well” and one in which God’s grace is accessible.

    The Lion Who is a Lamb

    The Lion Who is a Lamb

    Most of us appreciate power . . . geopolitically, we want our country to be strong; in our work life, we want our opinions and decisions to matter; even in something as trivial as sports, we want our team to dominate others–usually through some combination of strength, speed, and agility. In other words, we like power, because power gets things done.
    Israel, as you know, was looking for a powerful Messiah, a Davidic King who would follow in the footsteps of his namesake by leading a victorious army over “thousands and ten thousands.”
    Near the beginning of John’s apocalyptic visions–as he was concerned that there was no one worthy to break the seals and open the book–God showed him that the “Lion of the tribe of Judah” would open it. It seems fitting for Jesus to be represented by the powerful lion.
    But when John looked, he saw not a Lion but a Lamb–one “as though it had been slain.” And it was the Lamb who was able to break the seals and open the scroll.
    The image is striking and incredibly important. The lamb, especially when set in contrast to the lion, is the epitome of weakness. It has no power, no strength.
    And yet through the Lamb God conquers.
    Tomorrow we’ll reflect on this text and what it teaches us. God wanted to show us that it was through the “weakness” of the Lamb and not the “strength” of the Lion that he would conquer the world. This principle is far-reaching for us as well . . . God’s “power is made perfect in weakness,” and it points to a dynamic that speaks to our own desires to make a difference in the world.
