It was followed by another best seller, Boy Meets
In 2017 the suicide rate in the U.S. was the highest it has been for at least 50 years, as reported by CBS News. Some experts after reviewing the data attribute this to an “epidemic of hopelessness”, which has lead to more drug related deaths and suicide. Last month the L.A.

God is real. He is great. He is so great, we have only the tiniest inkling of how great He is. And He is good. And He is righteous. Everything He does is right, because that is who He is. That’s His nature. Not only is He our Creator, when we joined the rebellion of the fallen angels, and sinned
Verses 1-2 (author/recipients – note three-fold formula of greeting) Jude, a servant of Messiah Yeshua and a brother of James, to those who have been called, who are loved by God the Father and kept by Messiah Yeshua: mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance. Almost certainly, this is Yehuda or Judas, Yeshua’s earthly half-brother, since he calls himself
The Lord Yeshua is looking for servants - not church goers, not messianic synagogue goers who go to a worship service, sing some songs, hear a message, donate some money and leave. A servant is someone who has a master and puts his master’s interests before his own. To be Yeshua’s servant, we must know what His interests are and
The Lord Messiah is looking for servants, not church goers, not messianic synagogue goers who go to a worship service, sing some songs, hear a message, donate some money and leave. The Lord Messiah is looking for servants. A servant is someone who has a master and puts his master’s interests before his own. Human beings are not servants by
Think for a moment about the more memorable stories from the Bible; don’t they usually involve men and women who rose to the occasion and showed courage in the face of danger? Those are the stories that make it into children’s Bibles, and into a lot of sermons, precisely because they inspire faith. This morning, as we consider seven acts
Introduction: “Safety First” has become almost a mantra in our litigious society.

It seems like every message coming at us urges us to exercise caution. Wear your seatbelt,
We’re doing something a little different today. I’ve expanded the parasha to be our main message this Shabbat. There is a theme woven throughout this section of the Torah, and I felt it deserved our deeper consideration. First, I’ll give an overview of the parasha, then we’ll address that underlying theme, and draw some applications. But I’ll begin with a
Shabbat Shalom, today we celebrate the holiday of Shavuot. Shavuot is a biblical Jewish holiday that doesn’t get as much attention in modern times as other days like Yom Kippur or Passover, but it is very important. Shavuot was a holiday that was required to be attended when the Temple still stood. Shavuot means the “Feast of Weeks,” and is
When was Messiah’s Community at its best? When it first became the religion of the Roman empire? At the beginning of the Protestant Reformation? Today? My answer: Messiah’s Community was it its best when it first started. This morning, let’s consider Acts 2, which describes what Messiah’s Community was like at its beginning.

I think most of us are familiar with Yeshua’s words in Luke chapter twelve: “From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked” (Luke 12:48).
