Geysers and Rivulets

December 9, 2016 | by: Pastor Dax | 0 Comments

Jesus isn't just the headwater of our faith, like a roaring stream has a little tributary that starts it off. Jesus is the geyser, and he gets us wet. He's the force and the power. The Holy Spirit is our comforter, reminding us of all that he's done and all that he's promised. We have life if he gets us wet ... Keep Reading

Assurance Today!

October 13, 2016 | by: Pastor Dax | 0 Comments

Faith itself has to have a strong strand of assurance built in. That's because our belief is in Jesus and what he has done, rather than in what we do.

The Scriptures lay out the gracious, beautiful, wonderful standard of what God requires. That standard doesn't affirm the moral person, it crushes everyone. And to the crushed, the beauty of the perfect Savior is a balm and a wonder. The Gospel says Jesus has done it all. He is the Lord and Savior. He's got the power; he redeems. His salvation is more than we can imagine...... Keep Reading

Paul, Jesus, and Me

June 27, 2016 | by: Pastor Dax | 0 Comments

And when I see my unworthiness, I see that there is just one message. That we are unworthy, unclean, unrighteous, unable. And yet God, in his great mercy, while we were dead, made us alive in Christ. Jesus loved us in this midst of this state that we are in… and by what he did, we are united to him, given righteousness, made to belong, adopted, put in the family, sealed with the Spirit, kept for heaven, admitted into the holy Kingdom where God rules....
