THOUGHTS FROM PASTOR ROSS

Seek God The Gift-Giver

God wants us to seek Him, not the signs that point to Him. We can get caught up in looking for the signs. Going to a church for the evidence of the Holy Spirit and not the Spirit. For the amazement and wonder and not the Wonder-maker. To see the miracle and not meet the […]

We Need the Right Perspective

Read Ephesians 1:18, Colossians 3:1-4, and 1 Peter 4:14.

Knowing we are safe with Jesus gives us the right perspective. That’s how Stephen was able to endure martyrdom in Acts 7. We are safe because we are already saved! We are already with Christ positionally outside of time. Look at Ephesians 2:4-6. The devil […]

We Need to be Ready to Serve

The early church chose seven men full of the Holy Spirit, wisdom, and with a good reputation to serve in the church so that the apostles could spend their time devoted to prayer and studying the Word. One of these men, Stephen, was bearing so much fruit, performing so many miracles, that the local religious […]

Trust God’s Plan

Look at these verses. God is constantly moving the pieces on the chessboard of life as we make our moves. And He even prompts us to make certain moves. We know this from Phil. 2:13. God is working all things together for the good for those who love Him and are called by Him! To […]

God is on Our Side

The Greek word for “God” in Acts 4:24 means “absolute Master”, an uncommonly used Greek word for God in the New Testament. Don’t you want Him on your side?! The absolute master of the universe! We are not talking about a fictional character like an Avenger or some super hero. This is the Lord who […]

God’s Church Grows when His people Thrive

They will know we are Christians by our love, unity, community, generosity, joy, sincerity, and favor. It shows God’s presence, enabling, and kindness coming through in our lives, thanks to the fruits of the Spirit described in Acts 2:44-47 and Galatians 5:22-23. God’s kindness leads to repentance. People repent. They change their mind about Jesus […]

God Uses the Supernatural to Reach the Lost

Where are you? Are you skeptical? Do you believe in miracles? Do you believe Jesus can heal today? Lee Strobel’s new book, The Case For Miracles, documents modern miracles that will stir you to tell the world about Jesus! God is moving miraculously to draw the lost to Himself. Jesus is appearing in person to […]
