God's Love: Knowing God Through the Psalms
Hear or Listen Often we mix the words hearing and listening together as one word. We think to hear someone is to listen to them. We think that these words are synonymous of one another. Well, ask any wife if there is a difference, or parent for that matter. How many times have we said “You might be hearing…
There he went into a cave and spent the night.

1 Therefore we must pay much closer attention to what we have heard, lest we drift away from it. 2 For since the message declared by angels proved to be reliable, and every transgression or disobedience received a just retribution, 3 how shall we escape if we neglect such a great salvation? It was declared…
Do you know that some movies are filmed with alternative endings? For example, Will Smith’s “I am Legend,” has an alternative ending. Some alternative endings are a stark contrast to each other. Jesus’ life on earth had an alternative ending. The scene of the Transfiguration is one possible ending. It was an ideal ending or a preferred ending. However, the actual ending, as we know it, was the crucifixion. However, the alternative ending is coming. Let's see the preview of it.

Tell me if you have ever been a part of this scenario. You are in the same room as your child. You are in your chair and they are on the couch. And trash day is tomorrow. It is this child’s job to take out the trash. So you tell them, “Hey, go take out the trash. I need you to go do it now, please. Don’t…

2 Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, 3 for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. 4 And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. 12 Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial,…
Listen! That is the theme of chapter 48. Listen to God because He is our Master! And not Listen in one ear and out the other… Listen to Obey He speaks to sinful people! Which is a wonderful thing!

“Listen” - Pay attention. Note the highlighted words in Isaiah 48 We speak of someone not paying attention as it “went in one ear and out the other” As I have thought about this message all week long, I want to ask a question DO YOU COME TO HEAR A SERMON LOOKING FOR SOMETHING TO OBEY, OR DOES IT GO IN…

Back to the basics: God's Great Reset
The ability to recognize God's voice is vitally important to every area of your life. Most every negative issue we face in life is a direct result of doing our own thing, instead of listening to God. The challenge we face is not to get God talking, but rather to be able to tune into What He is saying. Pastor Shawn will endeavour to show us how to prepare ourselves to hear God's voice.
Back to the Basics: God's great reset!
It's one thing to know you hear from God, It's a greater challenge to be confident in what you are hearing. So how can you confirm what you believe you hear from God. Is it just blind faith, or has God provided us tools to equip us for hearing?
The Life of Christ
Ken Richter • Soldier Creek Church of Christ • Sermon • • 10 views • 27:23
Have you ever had a person in authority over you say "You aren't listenng to me"? This sermon in the "Life of Christ" series focuses on 2nd miracle where Jesus feeds a large crowd. The apostles seem to have forgotten what Jesus was capable of doing, as they again struggle to understand how they were going to feed 4000 people. Are we listening to God? Do we trust Him with the stuggles of the current, even when we know He has been capable in the past?
