Living In God's Reality

May 3, 2016 | by: Jay Pound | 0 Comments

Living In God's Reality One of my favorite things about the Apostle Paul is his ability to weave together theology with a call to practical applications. It's an ability that I appreciate more and more as I grow in my own vocation as a pastor. Paul’s theology, while often breathtaking, is never theology for its own... Keep Reading

They Matter To God

April 5, 2016 | by: Joel Sutton | 0 Comments

Take a look around your neighborhood. Or around your office. Or school. Or park. Do you see them? They live in the houses next door, they get up every Sunday morning, have a cup of coffee, and read the Star Tribune. But they don’t go to church and they don’t know Christ and they probably don't even have a rel...

Yet, when Jesus shows up it seems Thomas is not with them. So the disciples do what we would expect, they tell Thomas that they've seen Jesus. They report to Thomas that they've seen Jesus, they've touched Him, that He is not dead but alive!!... Keep Reading

Here Am I! Send Me!

Isaiah worshipped! His was a fourfold experience of worship. He saw something. He heard something. He felt something. And he did something. Isaiah saw something. "I saw the Lord seated on the throne, high and exalted" (Isaiah 6:1). John, in his gospel, tells us that Isaiah saw Jesus Christ (John 12:41). For Isaiah, the invisible became visible and the spiritual became real. It was a life-changing experience.... Keep Reading

"He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature." (Hebrews 1:3) During the Exodus, when the descendants of Jacob were brought out of Egypt, out of captivity and slavery, their God went with them and led them.

When I was younger, one time I forgot to turn off the faucet. Now that would not have been such a big problem if I had not also put the stopper down. The end result was the sink filled up and overflowed. Romans 5:5 says, “God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us”. Before y... Keep Reading

I Love The Fall

October 21, 2015 | by: Joel Sutton | 0 Comments

I love the fall. Although the weather turns cooler and the days start to become shorter, the leaves turn into vibrant kaleidoscopes of color. Browns. Yellows. Reds. Orange.
