Spiritually Dialing 911
Series: Psalm 119
You know what phone number to call in an emergency, right?  911.  That number is plastered on virtually every fire truck, police car and ambulance you see.  It is the number to call when you need help.
 
There are some remarkable similarities between calling 911 and prayer.  Just as you can dial 911 from any phone and get help, you can pray no matter where you are and God will hear you.  In Psalm 119:153-160 we see that: 1) God encourages us to pray in our Affliction; 2) He wants us to pray about our Adversaries; and 3) He certainly appreciates our prayers of Affection.
 
God is able to sustain us even when others stand against us.

    Yearning for Some Learning
    Series: Father's Day
    We learn so many things from others – often times simply by observing their lives.  In Paul’s letter to the Thessalonians, he reflects on his love for them and his desire to teach them as a "Father."  Here he highlights 3 ways to learn from someone’s life: 1) We can learn by examining one’s character; 2) we can learn by observing one’s conduct; and 3) we can learn by understanding one’s goals.
     
    Live a life that leads others to walk worthy of God's calling.

    A Passionate Prayer Life
    Series: Psalm 119
    How’s your prayer life?  Is it passionate?  Do you pray always about everything?  Or do you only pray when things are going bad and you need help? 
     
    Our author in Psalm 119 gives us a lesson in prayer, and it is clear that he had a passionate prayer life.  Four things show up in our text.  First, we see the Fervent Nature of His Prayer.  Next, we have the Full-Time Manner of His Prayer.  Thirdly, we witness the Focused Hope of His Prayer.  And, finally, he draws our attention to the Faithful Presence of God.
     
    Passionate prayer is our means for enjoying the presence of God and His loving promises.

    Talking the Talk and Walking the Walk
    Series: Psalm 119
    So many things are changing so rapidly in today's culture; morality and truth among them.  What used to be wrong is now right; what was to be avoided is now sought and encouraged.  Christians who believe that some things that never change seem out of step with our culture.  Yet, there are absolutely some things that never change: God never changes, so God’s truth never changes.  God is completely righteous – He is who He says He is, and does what He says He will do. 
     
    These are the thoughts that occupy the psalmist’s mind in Psalm 119:137-144.  In this passage our author gives us 1) A Glimpse of God’s Righteousness.  Then he speaks to us of 2) Responding to God’s Righteousness.  Finally, our author makes the bold claim that 3) God’s Righteousness is Right.
     
    Let’s live lives of obedience in response to God’s righteousness.

    Watching Your Step
    Series: Psalm 119
    Everywhere we go we see signs, put up for our benefit.  These signs guide us, help us to find what we’re looking for, and help to keep us out of trouble if we heed the message.  The Bible provides many of these same benefits.  God’s Word is given to us to guide us, to help us know where we are and where we are going, it provides direction, and it warns us about harmful things, that we might watch our step.
     
    In this section of Psalm 119 our author affirms the goodness of God’s Word and prays for God’s help to live in obedience to God’s commands.  First, he considers the benefits of God's Word.  Secondly, he boldly prays for God's blessing.  Finally, he expresses his burden for those who deny God.
     
    God has blessed us with His Word that we might grow in Christian maturity & show compassion for the lost.

    God’s Got This!
    Series: Psalm 119
    Are you experiencing need right now?  Many people are.  These have been difficult times for many, and our needs continue to change and grow.  We can bring all our needs to the Lord in prayer. God is our provider; He gives us hope of salvation; God strengthens us for obedience; and He is present with us always.
     
    The author of Psalm 119 also understood what it was to be in need.  He was struggling and felt oppressed by those who were seeking his downfall.  In verses 121-128, the psalmist does 5 things as he struggles: 1) he prays for God’s provision; 2) he declares his patient hope; 3) he issues a plea for practical perception; 4) he prays for God’s presence & power; and 5) he declares his reverence & respect for God’s Law.
     
    Pray to God, our protector & provider, for grace to live obediently.

    Taking a Walk on Mother’s Day
    Series: Mother's Day
    Most of us had mothers who were instrumental in teaching us to walk when we were toddlers.  But, what a joy and blessing it is that some of those same mothers taught us to walk according to God's Word.  In 2 John, we read about living the Christian life, and striving to walk in truth, in love, and in obedience to the Lord God.
     
    We need to live lives of love and obedience to God’s truth.

    Wholly Holy
    Series: Psalm 119
    God calls us to be holy.  That means we are to be set apart, we are to avoid participating in that which is sinful and carnal.  Still, we all still struggle against our sin nature and temptation towards doing things that God commands us to avoid.  We do this while living in a world which has values that often stand opposed to holiness and Godly righteousness.
     
    This section of Psalm 119 presents an "oil and water" like comparison of the carnal and the holy.  In these verses, our author describes 1) the Character of the Carnal Person – he shows us 2) God’s Condemnation of the Carnal Person – he demonstrates 3) How We Should Handle Conflict with the Carnal Person – and finally, he guides us in 4) Seeking God’s Support to Be Set Apart, and in cultivating 5) A Healthy Respect for God’s Righteousness.
     
    We need to look to the Lord for help to live holy lives.

    The Ascension of Jesus Christ
    Series: Easter 2022
    The ascension of Jesus Christ was the visible bridge between his earthly and heavenly ministries on our behalf.  In this message we seek to gain a greater understanding of his ascension which will lead us to a stronger commitment to him and a deeper worship of him.
     
    Almost everything (if not everything) that we value and treasure in our walk with God has a connection to the ascension of Jesus Christ.  It is why we can live confidently and courageously in this present age.
