Pastor Andy continues the series through Proverbs by looking at Proverbs 2:1-22. This “wisdom poem” from the Old Testament shows us just a few of the benefits that come from living by God’s wisdom.
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?
God is someone who can be trusted. We can put our confidence in him. Pastor Alex looks at Psalm 11 to see how God is both near to us, and in control of the big picture, so we can put our full trust in him.
Christmas Eve at LakeView Church. Pastor Andy finished up the Advent series by looking at John 1:1-14 to see what the Bible says about who Jesus is, and how we need to decide what we're going to do with that claim.
Hope, love, joy, and peace. In this fourth Advent message, Pastor Andy turns to the Book of Philippians to find out how we can have the peace of God and the God of peace this Christmas.
“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.
Pastor Andy continues our Christmas series with a message from 1 John 4:7-21 about love. When we receive God’s love and complete it by sharing it with others, God shines in us. This Christmas, let’s love like no one else!
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?
Pastor Andy finishes the series on prayer with a psalm of Thanksgiving.
In Ephesians 3:14-21, the Apostle Paul prayed for the church. The same prayer he prayed for his church is the prayer we're praying for ours: that God would drench us in his overwhelming love to know what goes beyond the limits of knowledge and be filled with all the fullness of God.
Pastor Andy continues the series on prayer with a look at Psalm 16, a prayer of dependence and confidence in God. How can we say that God is our only hope? Why do Christians put all their eggs in God’s basket? Why do we pray: “Lord, I need you”?
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.
Mike shares why our confidence in the promises of Christ and our hope of a future together with him in paradise should give us joy in all circumstances and help our faith persevere through the trials of this life.
Mike discusses how the Bible uses the word "hope," why believers have hope, how they get that hope, and what that hope is.
“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.
“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.
Proverbs 22:6 says, “Train a child in the way that he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.” But does that really mean that raising kids in a godly home guarantees they’ll grow up to follow Jesus? What about all the kids who were raised well, but walked away from God as adults? Pastor Andy continues our series, Lies Christians Swallow, by looking at some parenting wisdom from the Bible.
There are many false ideas, spiritual urban legends, floating around our churches today. Unfortunately, we often swallow these lies hook, line, and sinker, and then get frustrated with God for failing to keep promises He never made! Pastor Andy kicks off a new series, Lies Christians Swallow, by looking at a common misconception about God’s will. Does God really have a “blueprint” for our lives?
What is the best part of knowing Jesus? Some might say forgiveness. Others, freedom from addiction. Still others would say it’s the peace and joy they’ve found in Christ. And most would probably say the promise of eternal life is the best part of knowing Jesus. While all those things are true and good, Pastor Andy preaches from Luke 10:38-42 to show us what the best part of knowing Jesus truly is.
