This weekend, we are continuing our study of Isaiah 53. Isaiah writes about someone suffering in our place. The suffering that was meant for us was laid upon another and we were healed as a result. This idea is one that is directly tied to the very core doctrines of Christianity and our understanding of the cross. The title of this weekend’s message is “VICARIOUS.”
This weekend, we will dive into Peter’s examination of the book of Isaiah. Isaiah 53 is only mentioned a handful of times in the New Testament, but Peter’s use of the passage is the one of the most significant. We will take a look at Jesus’ death on the cross and its effect on our lives. The title of this series is “ATONEMENT.”
This weekend, we are moving forward through the book of 1 Peter. Peter is writing to an audience that was exiled and displaced. Hope would have been difficult to come by. And yet, he reminds them that their source of hope is God and what He has done for them and for all of us. The title of this weekend’s message is “LIVING HOPE.”
This weekend, we are moving forward in Paul’s letter to the Philippians. Paul is writes about His life before encountering Christ. He has every reason to boast in his accomplishments, but he states that all is worthless compared to having a relationship with Christ. His pedigree is meaningless in light of the cross. Paul reminds his readers that the true mark of success for the believer is having a relationship with Jesus. The title of this weekend’s message is “TRUE GAINS.”
This weekend, we will be looking at Jesus’ words to His disciples. He describes the cost of living a life of obedience to God and taking up their crosses to follow after Him. This parable caused the disciples to examine their hearts and determine if they were truly willing to forsake all others and follow Jesus. The title of this weekend’s message is “COST.”
Our plans may fail. Our plans may get disrupted. Our plans may have to be revised. But, God’s Gospel Plan does not fail, will not get disrupted, and it’s not open to revision. The Plan of Salvation is the only hope for every man, woman, boy, or girl. Today it can happen for you and change your life forever.Which plan are you trusting in for your salvation? Your Plan? The Church Plan? The Denomination Plan? The wrong plan of salvation will cost you your soul. Are you truly saved? Repent, Believe, and Follow Jesus Christ.
This weekend, we turn our attention to the cross. This is one of the most powerful symbols, both in the church and in our culture as a whole. This tool of punishment and torture became the means of our forgiveness and redemption. The title of the message is “HUMILITY.”
Between John 3-5 we see Jesus interacting with four different individuals with different personalities and hang-ups. Instead of getting frustrated or defensive with them, He responded to them with wisdom and compassion. As a result, each of them found eternal life.
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:
This weekend I will be preaching the second message titled – “Have you received God’s Eternal Love?” The Bible tells us that Jesus was the “Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” This means that you and I were on the heart of Jesus Christ even before the world was created! Knowing that it would cost Him His life, He still created the world and all of us.
Now that I have your attention, let me confess – it is no secret. In fact, it’s been lying in plain sight for two thousand years! History shows that whenever men and women, boys and girls actually put it to use, churches were filled and the kingdom of God grew by leaps and bounds! Read on!

Most people have never truly understood the true gospel. They think that the gospel is being a good person or a church going person or a praying person. Although all those things are great but they are not remotely close to being the true gospel.
Jonah is a type of Jesus. His time in the belly of the great fish is a picture of the suffering of Jesus on the cross.
LEARNING TO LOVE PROPERLY by Pastor Shah, Clearview Church, Henderson My wife’s dad would often say, “The reason many people cannot love properly is because they’ve never been loved properly.” To understand true love you have to first receive it. Rom. 8:35-39 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or... Continue Reading →
