According to my research on the great minds, creative imagination is the presence of the Holy Spirit. If you are here this morning feeling beat up by the storms of life, I have a solution for you: exercise your creative imagination. This world is a sea of suffering, and the only way to stay afloat is your positive imagination. I am not talking about wishful thinking. Creative imagination is a gift from God to navigate this life. It is the very Spirit of Jesus Christ that enabled him to forgive when he was suffering from the worst injustice in human history when he was on the cross. It is his imagination of the bright future that allowed him to endure the cross. Lack of imagination will make you become negative, complainful, and resentful which will make the suffering even worse...

This morning we are continuing in our study of the Gospel of Mark. If you’re new to our church, it would be good for you to know we practice a form of preaching called “ Expository Preaching ” . What that means is we believe the Bible is best taught by taking a book of the Bible and then studying it…
The Bible contains two great teachings – the Law and the Gospel. If we want to understand the Scriptures we must learn to understand these two teachings without confusing them. The Law is easy enough to understand. It tells us what we are to do and what we are not to do. What does God want from you?…
Acts 22 & 23
Central Park Christian Church (Derek Slack) • Sermon • • 5 views
What defines you? Paul was defined by not who he was, but who he became in Christ. He positioned his past to advance the kingdom, he used boldness to confront the high priest, and we will see that he used hope to divide and conquer. Paul's main focus was on the world to come and so his defense was centered around that.
