Finding Our Way Back Home
Series: (All)
Hosea 11-14
God’s willingness to take us back is hard to conceive. It takes humility and discernment. Humility is necessary to get to the place to see that I am wrong. Discernment is necessary because I must see the holiness of God, which is different from the morality of culture.

    Luke 2:41-46; 51-52
    Becoming a mom or a dad is easy. Being a father or a mother is a lot harder, for many reasons. One of the greatest challenges for parents today is the outsourcing of parenthood. Schools. Sports. Church programs. It happens so frequently that we rarely acknowledge how much of a responsibility our children are; and not just "providing food and shelter." Kids develop their intellect, faith, character, vocation, relationships. Luke says of Jesus that he "increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor of God and man." (Lk 2:52). Through all that, parents guard, guide, and direct. It's a big job.

    Hosea 4:1
    The Book of Hosea has a message for all time. The premise includes that all humanity is accountable the Law of God. When people break the law, the Law-Giver extends mercy. Unfortunately, when people don’t respond to mercy, a court session is convened and a case is made. If you were on the jury, would you say innocent or guilty of the charges of law breaker?

    Identity: A Clear Reflection
    Series: (All)
    Our Identity in Christ is a phrase that defines who we are and what we do with our lives. It points to an image that we want to reflect. But often times we encounter distortions to that image that make us feel and think that we are not children of the King.

    The Power of Identity
    Series: (All)
    Ephesians 1:3-14
    There is an energy that exists in the life of a person fully committed to living the life of faith. It is like Mt. Rainier creating its own weather; unpredictable and complete. The power of the Christian life comes from faithfully living out the identity of Christ. Paul teaches us that our identity comes from actions God takes that alters the life we had prior to coming to faith.

    You Did What?

    Hosea 1-3
    Sometimes God’s people get overwhelmed by life and distractions and can find themselves accepting lifestyles and actions that were once defined as sin. The transgressions become the normal way of life. When this happens, God, in His grace, sends a message of hope surrounded by chaos. In it we find our way home.

    Crisis of Identity
    Series: (All)
    Acts 9:10-19
    The enemy has moved to steal our identity. He plays on our story and makes us think we are who we are not. The Crisis of Identity is different. Instead of asking, who am I? it states, I don’t know who I am. Everyone must go through this if we are to find out who we are.

    Identity Theft
    Lamentations 1:1-14
    Identity theft is big business. 16 Billion was transferred into the hands of thieves last year and it seems that it’s going to continue to be a growth industry as our personal information is as attainable as a google search. This is not a new tactic for the enemy. He has been trying to get us to forget who we are for generations.

    A New Song

    Psalm 40:1-8
    This morning the lesson will kick off our theme for the year. That theme is, Our Identity In Christ. It originates as an application of 2 Corinthians 5:17 which states, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away, and look, new things have come.” It is such a hopeful statement because it creates within me the mindset of freshness and creativity. The new identity defines how I look at the things of this life and how I look at the things of God. It gives me perspective and purpose. We hope these studies will encourage you to embrace your new identity on a deeper level and discover the image that God has imprinted on you.

    1 Chronicles 4:9-10
    This is a strange and controversial passage. It seems awkward and out of place, yet it also seems hopeful and empowering. Too often we feel we are stuck in our present circumstance. In this passage we learn that God can turn around any painful circumstance we may face.
