Highlights

  • Empty Religion-Who Do You Trust?: Isaiah 29-32
    The Jews had a systemic problem with idolatry but they are not alone. Idolatry is still in our world today and it is more than just the physical idols. Idolatry often shows up as acceptance of the "all worship is equal, many roads lead to heaven" man-made religion that is all around us today. Man-made religion seems good & pious but it is dangerous because it will turn you away from God. God promises to the Israelites and to us that He can do more than any man-made religion.

  • Book Corner: Forever: Why You Can't Live Without It by Paul David Tripp
    Is this all you're living for? For years, pastor Paul Tripp understood we were "hardwired for forever." But he didn't understand that it was more than a valuable insight. It is a practical tool to help us face the disappointment of everyday life. Now he knows, and he can help you discover how to survive and thrive in the middle of your story, with the final chapter of heaven in view. Instead of embracing the world's motto--"you only live once"--follow Tripp as he unpacks the biblical truth of the world as a broken place, longing for a second chance. And come alive as you discover the meaning and redemption all this brokenness can bring to your life today. With practical insights on how eternity impacts your relationships, your job, your kids, and your deepest struggles, you'll be encouraged to relax into the eternal story God is writing for you. You really are hardwired for eternity, and this book reveals how you can begin to view all that happens in your life as preparation for Forever.
