- Embracing God By Declaring our Love for the Lord
Date: Sep 4, 2011 | Passage: Psalm 18:1
Series: The Life of David in The Psalms
David's whole testimony declared that it doesn't take perfection to please God. But to please God we do have to experience God’s grace - and David's entire life was covered with grace. For he was imperfect; sometimes David flat out failed the Lord while at other times he was fearful, depressed, or troubled. But God always looked upon him not as he was, but as he would be. The Lord saw his heart, knew his deepest desire, and forgave all the rest.

- Global Signs of Christ's Coming
Date: Nov 23, 2008 | Passage: Matthew 24:3
As believers, God gives us an insider's knowledge. There is an eventual major upheaval in the worldwide social and economic situation. All the currency of the world: its money, possessions, fashions, and whims, will be worthless at our death or Christ's return, either of which could be very soon. This insight should utterly change our investment strategy.
