Change Begins in You (2023-02-06)

One day, Jesus told his 12 disciples that some of them would soon see him coming in the glory of his kingdom, and just six days later Peter, James, and John got to experience what most believe Jesus was talking about, what’s called His transfiguration. He led them up on a high mountain, and there Jesus was transfigured before them. His face…

Are you a follower of Jesus Christ? The telltale sign is whether or not you are carrying his cross with you. You see, Jesus tells us in Matthew 16, that that’s a requirement for his followers. Just as he carried his cross to the crucifixion, we must carry our cross. In other words, we must crucify our fleshly desires if we are…

The most important question that you will ever answer is, who is Jesus? In Matthew 16, Jesus asked his disciples who people said that he is. They responded that some thought he was the reincarnation of one of the dead great prophets like Elijah or Jeremiah. Some thought that he was John the Baptist come back to life. But then Jesus turned…

I’ve always thought being a weather forecaster or meteorologist would be a fascinating job. I’m certainly thankful for the people who do it day and day out. Local guys like Scotty Ray or Stormin’ Norman not only let us know what’s coming but help keep us safe when severe weather is imminent. But you know, the weather is not the only thing…

Throughout the Bible, we see many different descriptive names for God. One of the most important ones is Jehovah Jireh. That’s Hebrew for the Lord my provider. All throughout scripture, God proves over and over again that he will provide for his people. And as we might expect, we see that manifest in the life of Jesus. In Matthew 15, we see…

Do you ever hear people talk about how they think Christianity isn’t intended for them? Maybe because of the color of their skin or the nation they were born in or the background they were brought up in or maybe their broken past, they just feel like they don’t fit the right demographic to be a follower of Jesus. There once was…

Have you ever thought about the difference between a tradition and a commandment? A tradition is something that people have just come up with over the years. Somebody started doing it, and somebody decided to keep doing it. Traditions come and go, and we can take them or leave them. But a commandment is something that God has decided, something God came…

In Matthew 14 something pretty amazing happened in the land of Gennesaret when Jesus was there. The power of the Holy Spirit was so strongly upon him for healing that all people had to do was simply touch the fringe of his garment to be healed. But here’s the really cool thing… when people began to see Jesus and what was happening,…

One of Jesus’s greatest miracles was when he took just two fish and five loaves of bread and fed over 5,000 people. I say over 5000 because Matthew 14 says that those who ate of Jesus’s miracle were about 5000 men besides women and children. So, there were 5,000 men plus women and children. In reality, we could be talking at least…

Everywhere Jesus went the regular folks were astonished and amazed. They were blown away not only by his miracles but by his teaching as well. But there was one place in particular that the folks were just not impressed, and that was his hometown of Nazareth. Now Jesus was born in Bethlehem, but he was raised in Nazareth. And after being away…
