    Humble Worship
    Series: Worship
    Worship must be done correctly. We have that emphasis over and over as we see disaster happen for people in worship. It almost makes us afraid to worship. To make worship acceptable to God, we first need the right attitude. Why we worship becomes more important than how we worship. If we start with, “Why,” the “How” to worship becomes easy.

    Scripture: Luke 18:9-14

    God With Us — Drawn To Worship
    Series: God With Us
    When we realize God is with us, we are drawn to worship. No matter what the obstacles are we need to come and worship. We recognize the presence of God and we bow before him. In realizing this significance, we are drawn to him.

    Scripture: Matthew 2:1-12

    God With Us — But Are Our Eyes Open?
    Series: God With Us
    We don’t always see what God is doing around us even if we are part of his plan. Something significant is happening right in front of us and we are unaware. We must always assume God is working and about to do something amazing.

    Scripture: Matthew 1:18-25

    God With Us — But God Who?
    Series: God With Us
    God promises to be with us. Does that make us courageous and give us comfort? What is God like? The reason we can’t feel God with us because we don’t know who he is. We may even invent the God we want and declare him to be God.

    Scripture: Exodus 3:9-12

    Peace in The Spirit
    Series: Peace
    We fight for peace in war. We struggle for peace at work as we get things done. We maintain peace in our friendships. Christianity has a distinct advantage when it comes to peace. We are able to have peace in the Holy Spirit.

    Scripture: Ephesians 4:1-6

    Blessing with Enemies
    Series: Peace
    When God blesses he often does it in unexpected places. His blessing may be a message to others and so he lets others see when he blesses us. He blesses in the presence of enemies rather than in our quiet time. It makes it easier for us to praise him in public because he blesses us in obvious ways.

    Scripture: Psalm 23

    No Fear in The Valley
    Series: Peace
    There are places where we don’t feel safe. Death and evil are always dangerous and we are never comfortable there. Our Shepherd is there to comfort us with his rod and staff. He doesn’t take the struggle away but he shows us the way through so we are not afraid. 

    Scripture: Psalm 23:4

    The Lord is Shepherd of My Want
    Series: Peace
    Our want is out of control. We don’t seem to be able to stop it.  Things we want are usually in the hands of someone else. We didn’t want it before but now we do. We need a shepherd to lead us in the things we should want without all the distractions.

    Scripture: Psalm 23

    From Anxiety to Peace
    There are plenty of reasons to be anxious. We don’t feel secure, so we talk about cameras and guns and how to be safe. Halloween was scary enough. Jesus tells us to get past the fear and to trust in him.

    Scripture: Matthew 6:25-34

    From Critic to Praise
    What does it take to get to praise? We believe all the bad stuff. All the criticism and complaints. We all know if we really want to get action from someone we complain. The squeaky wheel syndrome works well. But how do we not treat God like just someone we complain to? How do we treat him with praise?

    Scripture: Matthew 21:1-11

    From Alien to Adoption
    Sometimes we feel like we don’t fit or belong. We wonder if God is even there or if he listens to us. Adoption seems like a lot of trouble. All the checks on the parents and the place they will live. How do we feel at home when God seems to be in such strange places? We don’t get him to move to our place, we move in with him and get adjusted to his people.

    Scripture: Ephesians 2:11-16

    From Trapped to Freedom
    Sometimes we find ourselves trapped. Traps all work the same way. There is an entrance and bait but there is no exit. We cannot get out and it is because we walked right into it. Why would we do that?

    Scripture: Mark 12:13-17

    Sinner to Holy and Blameless
    We begin with creation and are soon separated from God by sin. God lives in complete holiness and light and only those who are holy can come into his presence. What is the progression of sinner to holiness? 
    Ephesians 1:3-10
