Overlooking Offenses

Posted by Chuck L. Betters on

A couple of Sundays ago, I was discussing relationships in the context of the Ten Commandments and shared that embracing Proverbs 19:11 as a life verse will change your life. Proverbs 19:11 reads, "Good sense makes one slow to anger, and it is to his glory to overlook an offense." Just imagine...

Fourth and One

On Sunday, December 10th, 1995, my Dad, who is the Pastor Emeritus of Reach Church, preached on...something. On the same Lord's Day, I led worship from the piano, and I am sure we sang good songs. Which ones? I couldn't tell you. But what I do remember about that Sunday is that we were offered...

Jesus Isn’t Really Enough

Posted by Chuck L. Betters on

Last Sunday, I said that the greatest problem plaguing the American Church is that we fail to specifically identify Jesus as the “Lord God” of the Bible. Jesus has been replaced with a “Vague God”. Vague God religiosity seems like a “serious” Christianity...

Don’t Worry About Tomorrow

Posted by Chuck L. Betters on

Jesus said, “Don’t worry about tomorrow”.  How freeing.  Jesus, describing himself in the Sermon on on the Mount, focused on the “now”, the present, that ever moving thin and fleeting line, by considering...beauty...the flowers of the field, that he...

It's Really OK

Posted by Chuck L. Betters on

For the Summit Bridge Road Campus of Reach Church...I was really proud of the way you all responded today to a situation that I am sure stretched you. For those who don’t attend our church or weren’t there, a man spontaneously stood up at the end of the service and shared some...

Are you “All In”?

Posted by Chuck L. Betters on

On Sunday June 24th, we will begin a new sermon series, at both of our campuses, called, “All In”. This series will be rooted in the events of the reign of the fourth king of Judah, who was a man named Jehoshaphat (2 Chronicles 17-22). He was “All In”. Or was he really?...
