God created every person to interact with Him, face to face. But, that’s not the way we live. Everyone has done things God didn’t want us to do. Behavior like that separates us from God. We can’t interact. Basically, we’re cut off, alone in the world. We weren’t made to live this way. Worse, there’s no human cure for our dilemma.
God loves humanity so deeply He does more than sustain our world and our lives. He pursues us. He’s taken up the task of repairing our relationship, Himself. Through Jesus Christ, God offers us a way back to Him.

Note: This message was completely unplanned and impromptu. I had planned another sermon for this Sunday and was fully prepared. During the music before the preaching time, God redirected me to share the Gospel. I didn't know why. In the few moments before approaching the pulpit, God gave me the whole outline to follow. When I was done, a longstanding member responded to the invitation, saying, "I know why you preached that; God did it for me." After years of uncertainty, he was ready to settle his relationship with God and put all doubts to rest.
I love to preach and teach, and it's exciting to share God's Word with you here. I pray that you'll not only listen but do something different with life after encountering God.
I'd love to preach for your church family or speak at a special event, retreat, conference, or workshop. The buttons below explain what I can do and how to take the next steps. It's a privilege to encourage and challenge God's people.
We have discovered a flaw in the recording process used to produce the message recordings on the site. The messages will play properly when listened to through earphones (stereo), but not when played through a phone or tablet speaker (monophonic). We are working to correct all recordings 11/17/2013 and earlier. Later recordings do not have this problem. This note will disappear when the problem is corrected. Thanks for your understanding.
