What Can the Gospel of Jesus Christ Do For Our Relationships?

I hope your week is off to a grace filled start. I had a number of wonderful interactions after the service on Sunday about relationships. They were encouraging conversations. Isn't it refreshing to know some of the backstories on the people in Scripture, and to know that they had to work through so many of the same dynamics as we do when it comes to building relationships with one another? Relationships are hard work! Let's reflect on what R. Kent Hughes said again:...Read More

Prayer in the Battle

"Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving." (Colossians 4:2). Prayer is sweet communion with God our Father based on the finished work of Jesus Christ. Jesus has given us access to come boldly to the throne of grace (Hebrews 4:16). And the Holy Spirit intercedes for us in our weakness with groanings to deep for words (Romans 8:26). The way to God is wide open! And yet, life is a battle. We are called to use the access we have to God to find help in times of need. It would be foolish for us to fight this battle alone when God freely avails himself. And yet that is what we do when we neglect to pray....Read More

What's Your Response?

Colossians 3:18-21 contain rapid fire commands for wives, husbands, children and fathers. But in context, these commands have everything to do with Jesus Christ being supreme over all things....Read More

A Soul Saturated with Scripture

On Sunday we considered these words from Colossians 3:16, "Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly..." In order that we might live a life glorifying to the God who saved us, we are called both individually and as a church to have the word dwelling in us richly. We glorify God as we live out of this abundance....Read More

If Jesus Christ is your life, then live like Jesus Christ is your life!

Our vision is that Casselberry and beyond would see a display of the glory of God through us; through how we live, how we love, how we serve, how we give, how we hope, how we pray, how we do all that we do, whether eating or drinking or playing or anything else…that we would be a display of the glory of God that is powerful to draw others to God’s glorious light!...Read More

Keep Walking With Him Who Paid It All!

Good Morning, Metro! So where is that place where you keep your bills that need to be paid? Some of ours are auto pay, but some still go the old fashioned way of the mailbox. Those bills are in the kitchen. I write a check and seal the envelope but sure enough, about 30 days later they show up again!...Read More

Can I 'help' you?

Good Morning Metro! I hope you are very aware of the love of Christ and enjoying this fact; Jesus is in you! As we continued on in Colossians on Sunday morning I thought I would bring this reflection from Sam Storms back to our attention:...Read More

Jesus, Who is Everything, Became Nothing

We have a stunningly cosmic picture of Jesus Christ in the Scriptures. Colossians 1:15-20 makes clear that he is Lord of Creation; he's the goal of all of life, the Head of the Chuch, and the Lord of the New Creation. In short form, Jesus is everything....Read More

Come, Holy Spirit! We Expect You In This Place!

So I've been thinking about the times of worship at the Enduring Love Marriage Retreat, and then during our Sunday morning service. I could be wrong in my impression, but in both places there seemed to be a more tangible awareness of the presence of God....Read More
