Three sentences in the New Testament begin with the phrase, “The Son of Man came…” Two of these sentences remind us of Jesus mission and one teaches us a key method. Luke 7:34 states, “The Son of Man has come eating and drinking.” Have you considered your table as a sacred place to build relationship, share the hope of the Gospel and make disciples? Perhaps it’s time.
We can no longer allow our prior situations or our present circumstances keep us from the eternal purpose God intended for each and every one of us. We are what makes life on this planet make sense. The world is searching for an answer. Jesus is that answer and we are the response they need. Our lives are the good work God wants to do. That is what reflects our Creator. That is our intended purpose. You and I, we are it.
Are we settling for less? God didn’t promise a life without hardship. However, God invites us to an abundant internal life in light of any circumstance. He provides the guidance and the gifts, it’s our choice to access them. This message will identify four pathways that lead to a life exceedingly abundant. May we settle for more and live the abundant life we are offered.
We live in the tension between trust and control. Navigating how to live with an open hand before God instead of a closed fist can be one of the more difficult lessons to learn. Considering Daniel’s journey with God, not only can we learn what it means to trust God, but as a result we can actually experience His power and presence in our lives.
Jesus invites us to come to him for real hope, real rest, and ultimately the freedom that can only come through Him. And when Jesus sets you free you are free indeed. Jesus didn't dismiss or simply pass by the man that was possessed by demons, but actually did the extraordinary and restored him. In this sermon, Pastors, Walter & Marysol Ramos encouraged us to fully surrender to God's plan of redemption in our life and in the life of people around us.
The feeding of the five thousand is a real-life story that reminds us of the love, power and availability of God to us, His people.

Have you ever been really FULL and then tried to fit more in? When it comes to our relationship with God, oftentimes we seek Him to find our true food, but on the way we get FULL with life’s filler. Then we don’t have any space or desire for the really good stuff that God calls us to be full with. This fullness of life that Jesus promised and has freely provided is actually meant to serve as His compelling invitation for others to come close to Him. In this encouraging message and learn the practical steps toward the big picture on how to live a full life that truly compels and draws others near toward God in all His goodness!
We all face hardships and struggles and wonder why God would allow such things to happen. When we experience them we can either live in response to our circumstances or live in hopeful expectation of what God will do through them. In this message Dr. Dennis Easter explores the difference in the attitudes of circumstantial happiness and the gift of joy that is from the Lord.
