UNCOMFORTABLE OBEDIENCE (2020) by Dr. Shah, Clearview Church, Henderson (A Christmas Eve Message, Christmas 2020) Introduction: Once again, we want to welcome you to our Christmas Eve Service. For the past 2 Christmas Eves, we have been talking about “Uncomfortable Obedience.” There are many things that God commands us to do that we can do... Continue Reading →
Typically, we think that the reason God wanted to drive the Canaanites out of the land is because they were primitive savages. Nothing could be further from the truth. Here’s what we found:
There is nothing like walking around these different locations, knowing that Jesus stood in the very same places. It is one thing to read about places like Jerusalem and Capernaum in Scripture, but to see them in person makes the Word of God come alive! This weekend, we will hear from some of the team about the places that had the most impact on them and how this trip has impacted their faith. The title of the message this weekend is “WORD ALIVE.”
THE GREENER GRASS SYNDROME (Article) by Abidan Paul Shah (Published in the newspaper Daily Dispatch, Henderson on August 18, 2018), Have you ever driven past a herd of cows grazing in a lush green field and seen that one cow sticking its head through the fence, nibbling in the pasture next to it?

Typically on Palm Sunday, we hear messages about Jesus entering Jerusalem. However, this year, I want to focus on what takes place immediately before His entrance into the city. Jesus commanded His disciples to untie a colt and bring it to Him to ride upon. On the surface, this command doesn’t make sense, but the disciples obeyed anyway.

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.

In Matthew 2 we see the encounter between the magi from the east and King Herod. The magi traveled over 400 miles to come and worship the King of the Jews while Herod was clueless of His birth just 6 miles south in Bethlehem.

It’s no less a tragedy when people are going to hell right from under the shadow of the steeple. They have heard the truth but have become inoculated. It’s time to ask the Holy Spirit to knock on the doors of the hearts of our friends, family, and neighbors and ask the question –“Where is Jesus?” If they don’t know, it’s our responsibility to share Him with them.
