Worse Than Horrible, But You Must See It – Part Two | With Judges 20-21

These podcast conversations are a must. Today. Now. God is definitely not aloof to the pain of any horrific tragedy or crime we see in our world. He put many of those stories in Scripture for a reason. Because he knows what evil is and expresses a great lament. Yet he remains the One with heaven’s wisdom and strength to seek and save us from it all.

Giving Back to the One Who First Gave | Stewardship Encouragement 2020

Members of Living Savior,

From day to day, it can be easy to set our minds on all the different challenges in front of us.  Sometimes it feels relentless.  All of these things can be incredibly distracting, and it’s so easy to put our focus on simply making it through the day, or to set goals for ourselves which have little lasting value in the grand scheme of things.

However, it is important-perhaps now more than ever-to keep Christ in the center of all we do, and remember his sacrifice for us all.  Even now, we have more to be thankful for than we can even fathom-and it all comes from the one who created us.  What better way to express our gratitude for all that the Lord continues to provide for us, than to give back to him and to the church, which tells of his love and all that he has given for us?…

Love – So Amazing, So Divine: In the Tomb

This is our final midweek sermon on the Passion History of our Lord Jesus for this year. We close with his burial and the sealing of his tomb as the Word of God is made sure for us. We can live boldly, confess our creed in the One crucified, died and buried, and live in the confident new life of Christ.

Forever Family Reunion | Exodus 18:1-12 Devotion

Take a mini-break from the crazy in the wildnerness as Moses and the Israelites have family visitors from Midian. It’s a gathering of those spread out by distance yet they share one faith born from one testimony of the true God and his kind deliverance. We too enjoy this togetherness by faith, even when we can’t be together by sight.
