December 9, 2018: Let’s Talk about Cows

Presented by Casey Kluver (00:47)

Do you think more about moving forward or moving backwards?  The direction you think about is the direction you’ll move when stress is added to your life.  In the book Hebrews, the author remembers men and women who showed great faith in days past.  The people he wrote about suffered some major hardships or had difficult challenges set before them.  Describing them he wrote that if they had been mindful of where the came from, they might have gone back when things got hard.  Instead, they continued forward to the place God had prepared for them.

Listen as Pastor Casey encourages us to keep our eyes and mind facing forward looking at Jesus.  And yes, he does talk about cows!

November 25, 2018: The Art of Repentance

Presented by Casey Kluver (00:38)

Repentance is sometimes misunderstood.  It often gets associated with feeling bad about yourself.  As if God wants you to dwell on the guilt of your mistake.  Repentance includes a sorrow for your sin, but never a self-made magnification of your guilt.  The fullness of repentance is a change of direction with a result of joy.  The goal of the Christian life isn’t to feel worse about yourself – it’s to restore joyful relationship with the God you made you and who wants you.  Repentance leads to restoration.

Scripture references: Luke 15:11-32
