The Perfect Father, in Heaven – Luke 12:22-34
Series: (All)
Have you ever struggled with your view of God Almighty as a "Father?" Many folks do! Often times it seems that we project the shortcomings and failures of our earthly Father onto a perfect Heavenly Father... and thus it distorts His true nature and character. In the following recorded message that was taught by Pastor Anton on Father's Day 2018, he examines the parts of God's nature revealed by Jesus in Luke 12:22-34 and other selected passages. When we have a fuller understanding of God as Father, then we need to understand what His responsibility are to us His adopted children, and furthermore what our role in the relationship ought to look like and how it ought to be lived out. We would like to invite you to download the teaching notes and turn in your own Bible to Luke 12 as you prepare to listen to the following message.

    Made for Worship (Part 2) – Psalm 57:1-11
    Series: (All)
     What is your natural reaction to when people are attacking you? Most likely your natural human reaction when going through a difficult season is not to praise the Lord. Yet when we read Psalm 57, the author David is in the midst of an enemy pursuing him wishing to kill him! He is in a cave, hiding from the King of Israel, Saul, and the king's armies. Yet in the midst of the cave, David's heart and mind are focused on God and His goodness. 
    Ultimately God received the glory when we choose to focus on Him and trust in His plan and provision for our lives, especially when we are walking through a difficult season of life. We would like to invite you to turn in your own Bible to Psalm 57 as you listen to Pastor Anton share about the importance of praising God even when times are tough.

    Have you ever been forcefully removed from your family or friends? Physically separated from their presence because of a terrible ailment or malady? For men, women or children living in the first century, this would have been a terrible reality for those who contract the awful disease known as leprosy. It was a strange and unknown sickness to the people, and thus they would separate that individual from the village and community, even their own spouse and children in hopes of keeping the ailment from spreading to others. 
    In Luke 17, Jesus is called upon by ten men with leprosy for "mercy." They were unclean men because of their ailment, and outside of a miracle, they would probably need to remain in a leprosy camp for the remainder of their lives... Separated from family and friends. We would like to invite you to download the teaching notes as you prepare to listen to the following message by Pastor Anton on Luke 17:1-19. We trust that you will be encouraged and challenged in your faith journey.

     We as humans all have an impossible problem because of what the Bible explains to us as sin. We have "utterly helpless" when it comes to resolving this impossible solution on our own. Yet God offers us an incredible solution because of His incredible grace and kindness. Although we do not deserve it, God sent His one and only begotten Son Jesus to do for us what we could never do for ourselves. As a result of this undeserved kindness, we have the opportunity to gain so much! Not only eternity but a right relationship with God Almighty through the death and resurrection of Jesus! Surely this is a great reason to be thankful! Romans 5:11 (NLT) says, "So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God."

    The Great King Solomon was known to the wisest man alive, and when his mother would enter the room, he would stoop to show her honor and respect (2 Kings 2:19).

    It is easy for us to lose perspective on what matters most when we look at what we do not have and what we have not yet accomplished. Yet by reading and studying the words of the Apostle Paul in 1 Thessalonians 5:12-28, we gain a deeper sense of understanding when it comes to regaining a proper perspective on life.

    What would it be like if you could walk into a tent or small space and meet with God Almighty face to face? Maybe the thought of that thrills you or maybe it scares you half to death. In the Old Testament, we read of a named Moses who made it a part of his regular practice to do exactly that. He would set up a tent outside of the camp of the Israelites and he would meet with God. 
    Friend, have you begun to view meeting with God as something common and something to be approached casually? We would like to invite you to turn in your Bible to the book of Exodus and download the following teaching notes as you listen to the following message by Pastor Anton. We hope and trust that you will be encouraged in your walk this week.

     When it comes to your relationship with God what words would you use to describe your closeness or lack of closeness to Him? 
    The reality is that everyone of us has been created to be image bearers of Christ Jesus. And as image bearers we are called to grow closer to the Lord daily. When the Pharisees and other wise teachers of the religious law were trying to trap Jesus in Matthew 22, the question is asked of Jesus, “Which is the greatest of the commandments in the law of Moses.”
    Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.”
    When it comes to your relationship with God, are you doing that? Are you loving God with complete abandon, and loving others with the love you receive from your heavenly Father? We would like to invite you to download the teaching notes as you prepare to listen to the following message by Pastor Anton. Our prayer is that you will be encouraged and challenged to take your next spiritual step in your walk with the Lord.
