When Arrested, Jesus Shows Restraint

Through the season of Lent, we’ll follow Jesus to the cross, as well as to His empty tomb on Easter morning.  Today we’re going to look at something that happened in the Garden of Gethsemane.  Although he was deceptively betrayed, and he had every capability of attacking and winning, Jesus showed restraint.  Instead of exploding or imploding, how can we do the same as we…

Surrounded by Unfailing Love

“STOP!!!  “We’ve got you surrounded!” How would you feel if you heard those words while lights flashed around you, and police started coming towards you with handcuffs to arrest you?  It’s scary to think about being surrounded sometimes.  Even though we’re not criminals on the run, we do have situations that can sometimes feel…

Love that Lasts!

Withering and destructive…that’s an accurate description for the heat wave we’re having in Houston this entire summer, so it seems.  If you drive by our church right now it has never been more obvious to see which part of our grass is sprinkled regularly and which parts aren’t.   You know what else is withering and destructive?  Your sinfulness.  My sinfulness.  And…

Love As High of the Heavens

How high are the heavens above the earth?  It’s safe to say, incredibly high!  So high that is is immeasurable and mind boggling!   What kind of power, wisdom and creativity must God have in order to create our galaxy, stars, solar system, earth, and even us!  Even more than that – He isn’t just immeasurable in his…

Paid in Full!

Today we’re asking you a silly question… Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be an animal for a day? Maybe a super fast cheetah? Or a beloved dog?  What about a cockroach? Probably not a cockroach or a rat, right?!  They’re disgusting!  In todays devotion we talk about the length that Jesus went to save us. The Divine God took on lowly…

The Lord is My Light!

Last Sunday was Confirmation Sunday at our church!  It’s a time when young people from our congregation who have been studying the Word, stand up, confess their faith and prepare their hearts to take communion. Each student picks a confirmation verse for them to hold close to their heart for their whole life. Today’s verse, chosen by Lily Hajenga, is Psalm…

God’s Love Follows Me Forever

This Sunday is Confirmation Sunday at our church! It is a time when young people from our congregation who have been studying the Word, stand up and confess their faith and prepare their hearts to take communion.

Sermons Preached by Christ’s Enemies: The Sanhedrin

Today Pastor Buege is in Jerusalem and we’re going to be looking back at a sermon when the enemies and Jesus himself were in that same city! Jesus was on trial with His enemies and they really wanted Him to admit that He was the son of God…not so they could worship Him…but so they could kill him.…
