The Mid-Week Message: No Truth Without Tenderness, No Tenderness without Truth (Matthew 10)

In this message, we explore the Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 10, in which Jesus sends out his disciples to proclaim the message of the Kingdom.  He warns them of the opposition they will face, but also encourages them with the reminder that God is faithful and resourceful.  He advises them that they are to "be as wise as serpents and as gentle as doves", ie. that they must have both truth and tenderness.

Just Another Melodic Monday - What Mercy Did For Me

This is a new song to me, performed by Crystal Yates, Micah Tyler and Joshua Sherman. "What Mercy Did For Me" describes the transforming work of God that happens through Jesus Christ, taking us from "death and darkness" to being "called... from the grave", and then "living day by day by His grace".

Just Another Melodic Monday - I Got Saved

I loved the album of hymns that Selah did several years ago, but this song is from their most recent album "Unbreakable".  It tells a wonderful story and, with it being recorded in Nashville, I'm loving the country & western vibe!

In this message, we look at Matthew 9:18-34, where Jesus performs multiple miracles during one journey (and possibly one day!)  
How should we react to these miracles?  
What was their message?  
We consider the answers to these questions in this message.

Just Another Melodic Monday: Psalm 139 (Were I to Cross from Land to Land)

I've recently been listening an album of "New Scottish Hymns", and wanted to share this version of Psalm 139, "Were I to Cross from Land to Land", which reminds us of the sovereignty of God in life and death, and the joy of knowing his steadfast love.

In Matthew 9, Jesus is asked a question about fasting.  In this message, therefore, we consider what fasting is, and why Christians still fast today.
