Hey, do you know that great hymn, "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God"? Do you know where Martin Luther gained his inspiration? From Psalm 46! This psalm is a magnificent song shouting out how powerful and protective the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is. Some of you may even know this verse - "God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble." What with pestilences, plagues, and ginormous locust swarms hitting the earth along with political and economic turmoil, we absolutely NEED to memorize this psalm for comfort and confidence. Take a listen to Jay the Truth Barista as he and Larry talk about Psalm 46 and what it means to them.

September 29th, 2017

The burden of sin and guilt! Kind of like a truck parked on your heart and soul, right? We have ALL experienced the heaviness of the guilt of sin and the dread of God's punishment. Even Bible people like King David knew this awful condition. But there is a JOY that sweeps over us when we finally confess all to God and He FORGIVES us! There is a joy and release in this experience that is beyond measure. If there is such joy when we let go of our sin and guilt, why do we resist the tapping of the Holy Spirit on our hearts? Take a listen as Jay, the Truth Barista, and Amazing Larry walk through Psalm 32.
