    It’s All About Jesus
    This message explores the profound truth that Scripture, from cover to cover, points to Jesus Christ. We learn that if we miss seeing Jesus as the central figure of the Bible, we miss the entire point. The Old Testament stories, laws, and prophecies all whisper the name of Christ, foreshadowing his coming and the salvation he would bring. We are challenged to approach Scripture with eyes fixed on Christ, allowing his grace and beauty to transform our lives. When we truly grasp that the Bible is all about Jesus, it brings humility, joy, forgiveness, and a deeper understanding of God's personal love for us.

    Being Put to a Decision

    we are reminded of the true identity of Jesus Christ as the Son of God, equal to the Father. The Gospel of John reveals Jesus boldly proclaiming his divinity, even in the face of opposition and persecution. We are challenged to examine our own faith and decide whether we will submit to Jesus as Lord or reject him. The world may pressure us to compromise, but we must stand firm in proclaiming Jesus as the only way, truth, and life. Let us be inspired by the early followers who were willing to die for this truth. As we boldly share the gospel, may we do so with gentleness and respect, trusting that God will work in people's hearts.

    Where’s Your Mat?
    In this message we delve into the story of Jesus healing a man who had been sick for 38 years. This miraculous act, performed on the Sabbath, reveals Jesus as the Messiah and challenges the religious authorities' narrow interpretation of the law. The message also emphasizes the importance of recognizing Jesus' authority and responding to his call to 'pick up our mat and walk.' This symbolizes letting go of the burdens and sins that hold us back from fully embracing a life of faith and obedience. As we follow Jesus' example of compassion and mercy, we are encouraged to help others on their own spiritual journeys.

    Final Encouragements
    In this message we delve into the story of Zerubbabel from the Old Testament book of Haggai, reminding us that God is a God of restoration and power. Even when we feel discouraged or unworthy due to our past sins or the sins of our ancestors, God looks at our individual relationship with Him. Zerubbabel's story shows that through repentance and obedience, we can be restored and used by God to help build His kingdom, no matter how small our role may seem. The message encourages us to persevere in serving God and spreading the gospel, trusting that our labor is never in vain when it is done for the Lord.
