Wisdom is Good for You Part 2

Proverbs (well, really the whole Bible) is a treasure trove of wisdom for life. It teaches us how God designed life to work. This week Pastor Andy turns to Proverbs 3:1-12 to unpack it’s teaching in how we relate to God, which in turn changes everything else in our lives.

Wisdom Starts Here

Solomon asked God for wisdom, and God granted it to him. Solomon wrote most of Proverbs, including the theme of the book, Proverbs 1:7. Mike Moll discusses worldly wisdom versus Godly wisdom. He also looks at what made Solomon ask for wisdom. What is it that he wanted to know how to do? What is the application for us today, and for LakeView Church at this time?

Unspeakable Joy

“In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials” (1 Peter 1:6, NIV). How can the Bible say that we should rejoice in the middle of suffering? Pastor Andy digs into 1 Peter 1:3-9 to find out what Peter meant when he wrote those words, and how they apply to our lives today.

Dare to Hope

Guest speaker, Beau Martin, begins the Advent series focusing on Hope. Jesus Christ came to earth and fulfilled, in detail, the prophesies concerning the Messiah, the hope of Israel. As we wait for His return, will we continue to praise Him by being a light in this world? Will we continue to place our hope in Him, even if we look foolish?

Chrismon Family Service

Chrismons are a special kind of Christmas ornament created in the colors of white and gold to symbolize different parts of the story of Jesus and who He is. The LakeView Kids created these ornaments and hung them on the trees in our main auditorium during the four different parts of Jesus' story (Sunday's message): Jesus was Born, Jesus Lives/Dies/Rose Again, Jesus is God, and Jesus Saves. As you listen, may you be filled with joy for the amazing grace given to us through Jesus this Christmas season!

Our Father

Pastor Andy starts a new series on prayer, the most important thing we can do as Christians to experience the love of God, to have a victorious faith, and to accomplish the Great Commission. Each message in the series is paired with a popular worship song that parallels the theme of the Scripture. This week’s sermon is on the Lord’s Prayer in the Gospel of Luke.

Forgiving Means Forgetting

“Forgive and forget.” Or so we’re told. So often we believe that forgiving means forgetting, and since forgetting about the sin and hurt someone has caused us is darn near impossible, we give up and assume we just can’t forgive. But biblical forgiveness is not forgetting, as we see in the final message in our series, Lies Christians Swallow.

Faith Can Fix Anything

“The word on the street is that faith is a potent mixture of intellectual and emotional self-control that when properly harnessed can literally change outcomes through positive thinking and clear visualization” (Larry Osborne, Ten Dumb Things Smart Christians Believe). What is faith? And, can it really fix anything? Pastor Andy looks at these questions from a biblical perspective as we continue the series, Lies Christians Swallow.
