Paul’s Hallelujah Anyway Life

Last week we started a new series on the book of Philippians and the idea of a Hallelujah Anyway faith, attitude and lifestyle that says, God is good no matter what! He is mine; I am His. I’m not leaving, and He’s not leaving me—for eternity. Hallelujah Anyway faith means that we praise the Lord [...] Continue reading…

Hallelujah Anyway Faith in Action

In my last post I wrote about the apostle Paul’s “hallelujah anyway” faith in spite of the events during his first visit to the city of Philippi. This kind of faith was a consistent theme during Paul’s ministry. Approximately five or six years after his first visit to Philippi and six years before he wrote [...] Continue reading…

Hallelujah Anyway Faith

We began a new sermon series yesterday from the book of Philippians titled Hallelujah Anyway. The heartbeat of this series boils down to a simple fact: We have to come to the point in our spiritual life journey where we refuse to have our “hallelujah” stolen from us. We need to develop an attitude that [...] Continue reading…

When You Want To Run Away—Choose Prayer

Psalm 55 gives us a vivid picture of a man, King David, in great terror because of his enemies and deeply grieved by treachery. His first reaction to his current circumstance is to turn and run—and let’s not be hard on the “man after God’s own heart,” because that might be our response as well [...] Continue reading…

Jesus’ Answer to Perilous Times

I’m grateful to Dr. Michael Brown and the messages he brought us Sunday morning and Sunday night. He gave us, like the son’s of Issachar (1 Chronicles 12:32), tremendous insight into our times so we can respond from wisdom. There’s no question, as Dr. Brown explained, that we live in some radically difficult times and [...] Continue reading…

A Prayer in the Storm

Psalm 107 is a word of encouragement. It’s a hymn of thanksgiving to Almighty God for His deliverance from the falls of life. It’s a psalm that should give us renewed confidence to face every challenge that comes our way. Psalm 107:28 says, “Then they cry out to the Lord in their trouble, and He [...] Continue reading…

Interceding for the Persecuted

This past Sunday Vicar Andrew White helped remind us of the terrible persecution that is happening in many areas of the world. His compassion for oppressed people is contagious and we all need to realize that we are all connected through Christ—as Andrew says, “We’re one family,” and join him in his efforts through prayer [...] Continue reading…

The Name in Action

We can see an illustration of the power of Jesus’ name early in the book of Acts. In Acts 3:1–8 we find Peter and John going up to the Temple at the hour of prayer. These two men, partners in the fishing business (Luke 5:10); together at the Mount of Transfiguration (Matthew 17:1–2); the ones [...] Continue reading…

Praying In His Name

Friends, there is no greater name in the entire universe than the Name of Jesus. The apostle Paul reminds us in Philippians 2:9–11 that everything, and everyone, everywhere, must bow their knee to that Name
and confess His Lordship over all—we need to start using the Name with faith, and not merely empty tradition! God reveals [...] Continue reading…

Praying with Expectancy

Over my last few Blog posts I’ve focused on several Hebrew and Greek words for prayer and crying out to God. These are strong words that hold within them a meaning of boldness and fervency. We see Jesus crying out to God (this doesn’t always imply loud volume) and we should follow His example of [...] Continue reading…
