UNLIKE US by Pastor Shah, Clearview Church, Henderson Introduction: Do you remember that old joke? A teacher asked her kindergarteners to draw a picture of someone very important.

Parents Behaving Badly by Pastor Abidan Shah
Unfortunately, we live in a time where it's not just the children who do the unthinkable, but also some parents. They make choices and live in such a way that embarrasses the children.
JERUSALEM – THREE LESSONS, ONE GRAND VIEW (Article) by Abidan Paul Shah,
I'm standing atop Mount Scopus in Jerusalem. The view is mind blowing! Before me lies the city whose history goes back to over 4000 years. Jerusalem has bewitched both conquerors and pilgrims through the centuries. Even today, it is the most contended ground on the face of the earth. Someone called it – “the hottest piece of real estate on the planet.” But my view is different. I don’t find any magical lure or spiritual power in her presence, just lessons of deep significance. Three such landmarks stand out for me:
Keeping Intimacy in Marriage Part Six
In this final message we will be answering 3 key questions about this passage: Are sexual sins worse than any other sin? How far do we have to go to protect ourselves from sexual sins? Can sexual sins make us lose our salvation?
Keeping Intimacy in Marriage Part Five
In this message we will once again tackle the tough subject of adultery but this time look at how God is willing to forgive and restore. We will be looking at the example of King David and Bathsheba. This is a great reminder that daily we need the grace of God in our lives.
Keeping Intimacy in Marriage Part Four
In the past 3 messages we have been laying down the foundation regarding marriage. Now we are ready to deal with the subject of “what happens when marriage is threatened with the sin of adultery.” This weekend, we will meet Potiphar’s wife, an ungodly woman whose pursuit of Joseph brought hardship to both his life and her marriage.

In the next 5 letters, he will be reminding his son about the dangers of bad company, exercise self control and have a happy marriage. The last point is so important that Solomon dedicates the last 3 letters to it! Our children desperately need dads who will take the time to lead their children in these vital truths, especially on how to have a happy home.
WHO IS IN YOUR FAMILY TREE? – 4
There’s much that we can learn from Bathsheba’s life, most importantly that God shows His grace on those who deserve it the least.
