How to Pray for the Elections

October 28, 2016 | by: Joel Sutton | 0 Comments

I have been struggling recently in my prayer life. Not with praying per se, but with how to pray. Specifically, how to pray for the upcoming elections. So what did I do? I went to Scripture. And I found some answers. In Paul’s great teaching on prayer from 1 Timothy 2:1-3 one of his major points is that we ought to pray for rulers an... Keep Reading

Kingdom Ambassadors

September 30, 2016 | by: Joel Sutton | 0 Comments

Jesus talks a lot about the kingdom. He announced the kingdom in his first public words. The first prayer request that He taught His disciples was, “Thy kingdom come”. The top priority of the believer is to seek “first the kingdom of God.” The word “kingdom” is mentioned 152 times in the New Testament, 116... Keep Reading

Changing My Thinking

September 21, 2016 | by: Jason Pensa | 0 Comments

It can be so easy to follow and copy the customs and ways of this world. Even as Christians we might want to fit in, be liked and even not stand out. We might want to go with the flow or be thought of as progressive and modern. We are creatures of conformity.... Keep Reading

Risk Running the Race

August 31, 2016 | by: Joel Sutton | 0 Comments

I am worn out.   Not from too busy of a summer. Not from chasing the dog around the block. But from watching the Olympics. Hasn’t it been an exciting two weeks? What these amazing athletes can do takes my breath away. The Olympics always remind me of 1 Corinthians 9, where the Apostle Paul says,   “Do you not know t... Keep Reading

Ordinary Missionaries

Like its counterpart Luke, the book of Acts is a carefully organized volume. We moved geographically from Jerusalem in Acts 1 to Rome in Acts 28, just as the gospel has been “sent to the gentiles” (Acts 28:28). The result is that in the 28 chapters of the book we get to watch as Jesus' great commission to his followers reaches it... Keep Reading

Up Close & Personal

Howard Hendricks, the longtime professor at Dallas Seminary once said, “You can impress people at a distance; you can only impact them up close”. People usually don’t trust those they don’t know. Add to that, in our day and our culture there is a general mistrust of organized religion. So how do you get the message o... Keep Reading

Living In God's Reality

May 3, 2016 | by: Jay Pound | 0 Comments

Living In God's Reality One of my favorite things about the Apostle Paul is his ability to weave together theology with a call to practical applications. It's an ability that I appreciate more and more as I grow in my own vocation as a pastor. Paul’s theology, while often breathtaking, is never theology for its own... Keep Reading

They Matter To God

April 5, 2016 | by: Joel Sutton | 0 Comments

Take a look around your neighborhood. Or around your office. Or school. Or park. Do you see them? They live in the houses next door, they get up every Sunday morning, have a cup of coffee, and read the Star Tribune. But they don’t go to church and they don’t know Christ and they probably don't even have a rel...

The Greatest Rumor Ever Told

Yet, when Jesus shows up it seems Thomas is not with them. So the disciples do what we would expect, they tell Thomas that they've seen Jesus. They report to Thomas that they've seen Jesus, they've touched Him, that He is not dead but alive!!... Keep Reading
