Ruth accompanied a despairing Naomi home to Bethlehem out of a strong bond of loyalty. She did not expect anything from the move. Yet she gained a protector and a son, and even a place in the ancestry of the savior of the world! What pleasant surprises have we had in our own new beginnings?

Our current reality might look all that great on paper. The church is under pressure like it hasn't been in a long time. We can be quite discouraged at the number of losses over the recent years. However, the message of the cross is a foolish one. If we think the church is perishing, then we need to rely on the message of the cross -- be foolish and believe that we do have a future.

Crying out is a good start I love the story of John the Baptizer. Well, at least this beginning of his story I love. He’s a “larger than life” figure, who fully embraces who he is — eating locusts and wild honey, wearing camel hair and a leather belt — he couldn’t be more unique and unmistakable. And…

God is a God who delights in doing new things. Even with broken, old people, God can do new things. Be refreshed and encouraged as Pastor Dave brings this message from Isaiah.

Genesis not only speaks of the beginning, it is the beginning, origin, or source of every major doctrine in Scripture. Every teaching can be foundationally understood through what is known as the "Law of First Mention". Due to this fascinating discovery, it is of absolute necessity that we establish a unique bond with the Genesis scroll. In case you weren't aware of it, there's even a greater mystery and blessing in the first verse and the first word of Genesis. Join me as we discover the rhema of the text.
