Courageous Fatherhood

 

Nowadays it takes courage to be a father. Fatherhood, manhood in general is something that is under attack in our society. And why is it under attack? Because it was God’s design. Did you ever notice that Satan always attacks the pillars of God’s design? The things that are sacred are under attack, and fatherhood is a sacred institution created by God Himself. We’re in a day where we hear a lot of things about toxic masculinity or patriarchy, and we’re seeing the worst of manhood being revealed all the way around us. In our identity politic age, it tends to sort of be guilt by association. But in an age where men are behaving so badly, we are in an age when we can shine like a light like never before. We can be a contrast to what the world has created out of manhood and out of fatherhood. We can show the world what it means to be a godly father.

Death Defying God – Easter 2018

That’s what Jesus did at [the cross], he paid a debt he didn’t owe, and he paid a debt that you cannot pay.

Ordinary But Extraordinary

A Mother’s Day Message by Amy Todd

Amy Todd talks about the extraordinary impact on history made by ordinary women of faith through their acts of obedience.

Many of us sacrifice our own desires and needs for the sake of family or friends, and many times nobody notices, but God does. And many times, ladies, it’s not what others believe about us, but it’s what we believe about our self that’s holding us back from what God has called us to do.

The Born Supremacy – God’s Promise of a King

Next to the cross of Jesus Christ and his death on the cross, the incarnation, God becoming a man, is probably the most significant, historical, impactful event that’s ever taken place on planet earth. It changed the world forever.

…he wasn’t coming to fight for [Israel] in a physical sense, but he was going to deliver them from the greatest oppression ever, themselves. And that’s what Christmas speaks to us. Today, if you get anything out of this, I want you to remember – Jesus equals deliverance. And in your life and in my life … most of our real problems come from within. And most of our real problems come from internally, and Jesus is still that child who delivers people. And that baby born in a manger ended up being a powerful deliverer. Most of you are sitting in this room [today] because that baby born in a manger grew up and became a Savior who died on a cross, who resurrected from the dead and now is seated at the right hand of the Father, so that you would never be oppressed again. Many times [we think] our cry has to be … Jesus save me from this situation, save me from this relationship … Jesus save me from this financial situation, save me from my boss, but the real issue is that Jesus saves us from ourselves, and he delivers us.

The Born Identity – When God Became a Baby

Let’s not diminish this story, let’s not let culture diminish, let’s not let religion diminish, let’s not let familiarity with the nativity story diminish the magnitude of what this is all about. Do not forget, do not forget that when God became a baby, remember the prophecy of it, remember the history of it, remember the theology of it, remember the audacity of it, remember the blessing of what happened when God became a baby.
