Let It Be Jesus As Our Focus

Posted by Steve Coward on

How focused are you on Jesus? During the Christmas season, it seems as though everything is battling for our attention... and often, Jesus gets none. In Luke 2, there is a man named Simeon, who seems to have a singular focus. His focus was on Nothing But Jesus. We are told that he was "waiting...

Let It Be Jesus In Our Grief

Posted by Steve Coward on

While the Christmas season is an incredibly joyous time of year, for many, it can also be a very difficult time. For many, it is a reminder of family members with whom they are no longer able to enjoy Christmas. In Luke 2 we meet a woman named Anna who knew grief well. She married her husband...

Let It Be Jesus In Our Joy

Posted by Steve Coward on

Several years ago, Sears had a marketing campaign at Christmas time entitled "Real Gifts, Real Joy." Sears plastered signs all around the store with this slogan. They were making an audacious claim. They were claiming that if you shopped at Sears, you could buy things that would bring real...

How are you?

How are you?  No, how are you really doing?  We get the question, "How are you?" all the time.  Most of us have a programmed response to it.  We don't even think about it.  We immediately respond with "I am fine.  How are you?" or something very similar.  If...

Fulfillment

Posted by Steve Coward on

Do you ever struggle to find fulfillment in this life?  Do have a list of things that you believe would bring you more fulfillment if you had them? If you are anything like me, you probably struggle with both of these.  We have bought into the lie that the more stuff, the more money...

Join Us Sunday!

Posted by Steve Coward on

This Sunday morning, we will be diving further into Romans chapter 12.  Up until this chapter, Paul has spent an abundance of time making sure that we one hundred percent understand the gospel.  In the beginning of Romans, we heard about how sinful all are, how we are all in the same...

Preach the Gospel to Yourself Every Day

Posted by Steve Coward on

I hope you all have continued to enjoy our journey through Romans.  Personally it has been so good to be reminded so clearly of the good news of the gospel; the good news that we are saved by Nothing But Jesus.  My prayer is that you to have been reminded of this central truth. In...

Is It Real?

Posted by Steve Coward on

As we have moved through the book of Romans, Paul has communicated to us many incredible truths.  The Gospel is incredibly Good News! We who were once dead in our sin have been justified.  We have been given the perfect righteousness of Jesus.  When God looks upon us as believers...
