Jesus is in the Boat

The Love of Jesus

Scripture: Romans 8:31-39 MSGSo, what do you think? With God on our side like this, how can we lose? If God didn't hesitate to put everything on the line for us, embracing our condition and exposing himself to the worst by sending his own Son, is there anything else he wouldn't gladly and freely do for us? And who would dare tangle with God by messing with one of God's cho...

Set Your Hope in Heaven

Scripture:Romans 8:1-7 CEBSo now there isn't any condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and death. God has done what was impossible for the Law, since it was weak because of selfishness. God condemned sin in the body by sending his own Son to deal with sin in the same body as humans...

With All Your Might

Scripture:Ecclesiastes 9:10 (NIV)​Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for in the realm of the dead, where you are going, there is neither working nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom. Are you sick of Ecclesiastes yet? We have spent much time in worship over the past few weeks on Ecclesiastes. If you are sick of it, you are not alone. HOWEVER, I w...

Chasing Wind

Scripture: Ecclesiastes 1:14-17 CEBWhen I observed all that happens under the sun, I realized that everything is hevel, a chasing after wind. What's crooked can't be straightened; what isn't there can't be counted. I said to myself, Look here, I have grown much wiser than any who ruled over Jerusalem before me. My mind has absorbed great wisdom and knowledge. But when I se...

New Eyes

I am writing this in the last week of Eastertide. More than likely, you are reading this around Pentecost Sunday. Pentecost caused an amazing change in the followers of Jesus. This change brought courage and direction to their lives. It seems this is what happens whenever the Holy Spirit blows across our life. Most of us at Salem and the Connection have a comfortable Chri...

He Ascended into Heaven

Scripture:Acts 1:1-11 CEBTheophilus, the first scroll I wrote concerned everything Jesus did and taught from the beginning, right up to the day when he was taken up into heaven. Before he was taken up, working in the power of the Holy Spirit, Jesus instructed the apostles he had chosen. After his suffering, he showed them that he was alive with many convincing proofs. He a...

Understanding

Scripture: Ecclesiastes 1:16-18 MSGI said to myself, "I know more and I'm wiser than anyone before me in Jerusalem. I've stockpiled wisdom and knowledge." What I've finally concluded is that so-called wisdom and knowledge are mindless and witlessnothing but spitting into the wind. Much learning earns you much trouble. The more you know, the more you hurt. When we read the...
