    SunSundayFebFebruary19th2012 The Light-A New Kind of Magic
    byJeremy Flanagan Tagged No tags 0 comments Add comment

    What is “The Light”?  Usually when looking at the Bible we’re using the word ‘light’ to talk about Jesus or the gospel.  It is all about illuminating the mind of every person, showing them their need for a Savior and pointing them towards the only path to heaven: faith in Jesus Christ.  But is the gospel more than just a ticket to heaven – a personal matter – an answer to today’s problems?

    Through the next four messages we’re taking a look at what the purpose of the gospel is all about.  Today we’re going to talk about the story of Simon the Sorcerer and how he tried to buy the power that the apostles had.  For him, the power of God was just a new, better kind of magic.  But the truth of God is much more than that.  And although not for sale, everyone has an equal chance at receiving it.

    SunSundayFebFebruary12th2012 Daniel-Staying Strong in a Changing World
    byJeremy Flanagan Tagged No tags 0 comments Add comment

    Do you ever gets in those times of life where you experience something that absolutely changes you and you become a better person… for about a week and a half.  You know what I’m talking about.  A tough situation that makes you pray more.  An embarrassing situation that makes you more cautious with the way you carry yourself in public.  A dangerous situation that makes you more careful.  A motivational situation that makes you step out and be the person you want to be.  And all of these things last for usually a week or two. 

     

    There come moments in our lives where we wish we were stronger; were better prepared; were ready for anything.  Situations arise that are out of our control.  We feel like there’s nothing we can do.  And no matter where we look, help is fleeting if present at all.  The last few weeks we’ve seen God work in amazing ways through the book of Daniel.  We’ve seen a successful start to the lives of Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.  We’ve seen victories in the middle.  As we finish our series today, one last time we’ll see the formula to success over any obstacle, problem, or confrontation.

    SunSundayFebFebruary5th2012 Daniel-God Isn't Blind
    byJeremy Flanagan Tagged No tags 0 comments Add comment

    When we put God in His rightful place it automatically puts us in our place. When we raise Him

    up in high regard as He deserves, it automatically lowers us in His presence. But what about

    when we refuse? We saw last week with Nebuchadnezzar that because of all he had witnessed

    concerning God’s power & might, he had no excuse. But what about someone who hadn’t seen

    Daniel interpret his dreams? What about someone who didn’t witness the form of God walking

    with Shadrach, Meshach, & Abednego in the fiery furnace? What would God do with a ruler

    who had only heard about Him?

    A lot of people like to use the excuse that since they don’t understand everything in the Bible

    completely or since they haven’t publicly professed their faith in Christ, that somehow absolves

    them from being responsible to God. And if they don’t vocalize that excuse, they sure live that

    way. Of course at times, so do we. So if we turn a blind eye to God will He turn a blind eye on

    what we’re doing with our lives? Today’s sermon will show that a loving God who cares for

    every part of His creation is always interested in what we do.
