True brotherhood is ready to join you in warfare. A brother is with you in the trenches, even at your worst. And our war is not physical or fleshly, it’s spiritual. God has given us the weapons and the ability to win the fight – and to destroy destructive patterns of thinking. Brotherhood fights together, but we all have individual battles. We need…

Strongholds are fortified patterns of thinking that are stubbornly resistant to God’s Word and God’s will. Wherever you’re stuck, whether a destructive sin or hidden addiction – to find freedom, you must get honest and take care of your heart. And nothing will be different until you think differently. Defeating a stronghold requires confronting sin…

In the most challenging and unexpected seasons of life, someone may have told you “God is in control.” This weekend, first-century believers will remind us why we can trust God and His will.

Our final message in 1 Thessalonians is theological, yet very practical and on point. This precious book gives us hope – hope for each other and hope for the future, as we place our confidence in almighty God. Enduring, unshakeable hope requires active dependence on Jesus Christ, through prayer. In fact, a life of continual prayer reflects your awa…

First Thessalonians is sobering yet hopeful, warning us of judgement to come for unbelievers – but great hope for those who put their faith in Jesus Christ. Those far from the Lord will instantly awake to the totality of their reality error. But those who are alive in Christ will be rescued by the rapture to watch in safety from the balconies of He…

‘Jesus Christ is coming again!’ This is the resounding message of the book of Thessalonians – and the reason why ‘hope springs eternal’. This is not a wistful wishing for an unlikely or improbable future. Hope is heart reality anchored to the rock of God’s Word. Think about it… we have a living hope! Jesus Christ is alive and gives life! And His se…

The older I get, the more I realize how little I knew when I knew it all. Even in my pride, my mother’s example and wisdom continually guided me to make better choices and brought me closer to God. Kids will be blessed by their parents’ wise choices – and bent toward their parents’ bad choices. Some facets of God’s design for women can apply for us…

While the world abandons morality, questions truth, and redefines goodness, God has an unchanging path of truth and righteousness for us to follow. God’s will is not a secret blueprint for minute decisions He is hiding, but rather a revealed blueprint for wise decisions – and it’s called the Bible. God calls us to walk a path of righteousness, to r…

In relational uncertainty, love protects hope by focusing on what matters most. But Satan’s strategy is to strangle hope as he seeks to disguise, divide and destroy. Where hope is kept alive, know this: someone is always sacrificing. And most often, it’s Jesus Christ through one of His followers. Remember, hope is the confident expectation of bette…

You have to die if you want to live. You will never experience new life in Christ unless you first experience a death to your sin. This is the Easter Principle. As we celebrate Easter and reflect on Christ’s death and resurrection, Pastor James reminds us of the purpose of the sacrifice Jesus made for us. Get ready to dig into Romans 8 – and watch …

SCRIPTURE TELLS US FAITH, LOVE, AND HOPE ARE ALL IMPORTANT… So today we begin a fresh focus with a series in 1 Thessalonians on biblical hope. If you feel hope fading in your heart, remember – our hope is in a God who is sovereign over the universe. He is in control of everything, and nothing comes into our lives that He does not allow. This Palm S…

To what degree is God in control of specific details of my future? How do I know whether it is MY desire versus the will of God for my life? What do you do when you know you made a decision you shouldn’t have? These are some of the questions students asked Pastor James when they were learning the truth about God's Will. Pastor opens God's Word and …

Do you wonder if your decisions are bringing glory to God? Or consider the 90s adage, WWJD – “what would Jesus do?” The good news – God doesn’t want robots who conform to some extra-biblical code of conduct. Rather, He gives His children the beautiful freedom to make decisions and express ourselves in different ways. Grab your Bible and join us for…

The key to making difficult choices? It’s not flipping a coin but rather, wisdom God expects His children to use what He has provided for making decisions that honor and glorify Him. Yes, He gives us grace in these decisions – but in the end, God’s will for you IS His Word to you. Dr. James MacDonald preaches without apology straight from the pages…

Many people fumble around in mystical corners of decision making – "What is God's will for me?" "Who should I marry?" "Where should I live?" But God does not have an individualistic, specific will for your life. He leaves most of your life choices up to you. And His will in all of them is that you obey His Word. By the time we end this series, this…

Have you ever wondered, “What IS God’s will for my life? Can anyone really know it?” Confusion about God’s will abounds. But He’s not some cruel architect, ever teasing as we figure out the mysteries of life. You can know God’s will for your life – because the will of God IS the Word of God. When you understand that, all other decisions will be eas…

It isn’t wrong to enjoy your blessings; it’s wrong to forget where they come from. As God blesses you with material things, He wants you to enjoy them – but take heed. Enjoy money carefully or it will destroy you. And if you struggle with anxiety about what you don’t have, or envy over the success of others, you have the problem of discontentment. …

Jesus Christ is our Wonderful Savior AND a demanding boss to whom we must account. When Jesus returns, will He find that you have hidden and hoarded your talents and resources? Or will He see that you have multiplied what He put in your hands? Your investments here on earth have an eternal impact. While many obsess and stress over finances, God off…

Do you trust God with His money? All of our money and earthly possessions belong to God – we are simply stewards of what He has us temporarily hold. How we handle what God has entrusted to us is always an act of faith. Every dollar you have represents an opportunity to glorify the Lord. When you give to God and others cheerfully and sacrificially, …

Did you know that the attitude that put God over the edge and made Him cause the children of Israel to wander in the desert was their constant state of complaining?
