A Weekly Word from John

How does God love? How does He look at His fallen creation? As the Perfect Father of the greatest of love and compassion, who knows all things about you and about me in his incomprehensible wisdom and knowledge and the vastness of space and time. Although He lives in eternity past, present and future, above and beyond time, he sees us all and knows the hurt and brokenness and rebellion and bitterness, the love and hatred, the blessing and the venom.


The Danger of Deception

2/5/017 The Danger of Deception: James 1:19-27

The missionary apostle Paul said, “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked. A man reaps what he sows.” Deception can be so subtle and yet so destructive. The greatest deception for the Christian is to hear but not listen well; to hear but not do what God calls us to do. How many of us have heard a heart wrenching sermon that God has gotten our attention with only to apply the ‘magic eraser’ as we walk from the worship center to our car in the parking lot. Such is the way of deception. Such is the tool of the devil himself and his trap each week to well-meaning Christians. Don’t fall into this trap!

What Makes Human Life Sacred?

1/22/17 What Makes Human Life Sacred?: Genesis 1:26-17


What do you see when you look in to the eyes of a newborn child? What do you see when you look in to the eyes of an aging senior adult? What do you see when you look in to the eyes of a drug addict or drunkard? What do you see when you look in to the eyes of a woman who has had a ‘hard life’?

1/8/17 Working Faith: An Overview of the Epistle of James

The discussion and dialogue in theological circles has gone on since The Church began about the relationship of faith and works. The Reformation brought the Church back onto its biblical moorings, but did not end the discussion. The letter of James helps us really understand ‘WORKING FAITH’.


Momentary Afflictions

1/15/17 Momentary Afflictions: James 1:1-8

If someone were to give an honest description of your faith would they say your trust in Christ resembles more of a playpen or a workshop? Are you obviously working out your faith or just playing around when it’s convenient?



All Things for Good

1/1/17 All Things for Good: Romans 8:28-30

2016 was full of the good, the bad, and the ugly. Babies were born, marriages began, and EBC celebrated 50 years of faithful ministry. Many of us also experienced challenges: lost jobs, struggling marriages, strained relationships, failing health, and other difficulties. Following the ongoing protests over racial injustices and the contentious presidential election, we have not been this divided as a nation in decades.
