House of Prayer

You who call on the Lord, give yourselves no rest, and give him no rest till…ISAIAH 62:6-7 This is a word for us at Grace. The tendency is to ease up on the prayer pedal. We are never to coast, and we certainly never want to come to a full stop! Scripture says the opposite […]

And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved. ACTS 2:47 This verse is a bit unsettling, isn’t it? Intimidating even. Who ever heard of such a church nowadays? It does remind us though, of what is possible when God’s people are awakened. Do you long for such a day? Just […]

“It is hard for you to kick against the goads.” ACTS 26:14 Testifying in front of King Agrippa, Paul recounted his conversion on the Damascus road and those words from the Lord Jesus himself that told him his resistance was a losing battle. He was a marked man. Almighty God was determined to get him […]

They will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might. 2 THESSALONIANS 1:9 In The Great Divorce, C. S. Lewis wrote, “There are only two kinds of people in the end: those who say to God, ‘Thy will be done,’ and those […]

Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true. ACTS 17:11 Isn’t it curious that Luke would make this comparison? Clearly the Berean Jews stood out to him as […]

From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any […]

He then began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and after three days rise again. He spoke plainly about this, and Peter took him aside and began to […]

Then those who feared the Lord talked with each other, and the Lord listened and heard. A scroll of remembrance was written in his presence concerning those who feared the Lord and honored his name. MALACHI 3:16 So much happens when God’s people get together in His name. We are actually being transformed as we […]

But God remembered…. GENESIS 8:1 When our sermon series in Genesis left off last week, Noah’s ark was floating on the surface of the waters, populated by two of every kind of animal and eight people – and no place to land. What next? If God had a plan, this would be a good time […]

Noah did everything just as God commanded him. GENESIS 6:22 Do you ever think about what you might want written on your tombstone as an epitaph, or said at your memorial service? What greater tribute could be made than the qualities of godliness that Moses attributes to Noah? God watched in horror as the human […]

The Lord saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth. GENESIS 6:5 What did he do? How did God respond? Did he shrug? “There they go again.” Hardly. We know from Adam and Eve’s rebellion that God never overlooks sin. Rather, he walks straight toward it, confronting it, getting […]

“Did God really say..?” GENESIS 3:1 Is it possible that four words in a row could do more damage than these words did? A perfect garden setting was ruined, the relationship between God and man was marred, to say nothing of the relationship between man and woman. Upon close inspection and at the urging of […]

Stewardship & Legacy Seminar

Psalm 24:1 says “The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein.”  God is the owner and we are stewards of all that we have.  In Proverbs 13:22 we are reminded that part of stewardship is our legacy, “A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children.”  […]
