More Than An Idea

September 11, 2014

“Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.” (James 1:27) “For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality and accepts no bribes. He defends the cause of the fatherless and the widow, and loves the […]

The Beauty of the Gospel

June 17, 2014

We are accustom to reading the Bible as truth, which it is, but if truth is the only thing we see then we are missing much of what the Bible has to offer. The Bible is also full of beauty. It reflects the glory we find in Jesus. To miss the beauty of Scripture is […]

The Power of Love

June 1, 2014

How do you define love? It might depend on who you ask. What kind of love are we talking about? Are we talking about the kind you read about in the latest Nicholas Sparks’ novel? Are we talking about that scene in your favorite romantic comedy that makes you feel all warm inside, or are […]

The Cost of Motherhood

May 11, 2014

A sermon delivered at La Grange Church of Christ on May 11, 2014 (Mother’s Day) In The Cost of Discipleship Dietrich Bonhoeffer asked Christians to consider the cost of following Jesus.
