Real Church

Church is a messy place. It is filled with messy people. This is why a church represents real life with real people. But God’s commitment to the Church, His Bride is phenomenal. This is why God is constantly purifying it and strengthening it. It is through the Church where the manifold wisdom of God is made known (Eph 3:10). It is also through the Church where God’s heart is communicated.

God is writing a beautiful story of love, grace and redemption through the Church.

I am excited to start our new Sunday sermon series called, “Real Church” as we study the Book of 1 Corinthians together. It is going to be an awesome series as we delve into God’s timeless truths through a letter that was written to a church filled with messy people with some messy issues. But through it all, we will see that God is committed to His Bride no matter what (Mt 16:18)!

I’m excited to share our new series, “Redeemable” at our Access gathering for the college students. We have been trying to go through different books in the Bible for our series on Sunday. We just finished off our study on the Book of Hebrews. Now, in this new year we are studying the Book of 1 Corinthians for our Sunday sermon series.

Usually for our college students I have been doing more topical sermons. This allows me the freedom to address various issues that the college students struggle with throughout the semester. But as I have been praying, I felt that we can address a lot of the different issues college students go through with the study on the Book of Ruth. There are themes of God’s Sovereignty, perspective, relationships, redemption, character, etc that we see in the book.

I’m looking forward to the next four Fridays to help equip and build up the college students in our church.

We are expecting great things from our Great God! Please join us.

Run For Your Life

This is a message that we need to hear so desperately in our generation. It is very rare to hear a message like this in a church on any given Sunday in the United States or in the world for that matter. Maybe this is the reason why the place of complacency and contemptous attitudes towards God is often found in the church. But this is nothing new.

Even during the days of the Apostle Paul, he wrote, “I can’t impress this on you too strongly. God is looking over your shoulder. Christ himself is the Judge, with the final say on everyone, living and dead. He is about to break into the open with his rule, so proclaim the Message with intensity; keep on your watch. Challenge, warn, and urge your people. Don’t ever quit. Just keep it simple. You’re going to find that there will be times when people will have no stomach for solid teaching, but will fill up on spiritual junk food — catchy opinions that tickle their fancy. They’ll turn their backs on truth and chase mirages. But you — keep your eye on what you’re doing; accept the hard times along with the good; keep the Message alive; do a thorough job as God’s servant.”(2 Ti 4:1-5, MSG).

May all the HMCC churches be faithful in preaching God’s Word in all its fullness with power and anointing.
