Prayer as the Pathway to Unity

EM07262015 16x9 TitleIt is great to talk about unity but how do we really achieve it?

This past weekend at Eastbrook Church I continued our “One Church” series by exploring that question through Jesus’ high priestly prayer in John 17. In my message this weekend, “Prayer as the Pathway to Unity,” I specifically looked at John 17:20-26, where Jesus prays for the future believers, like us, to be one. My main point is that prayer is the pathway to unity and without prayer we will not achieve unity as believers.

Singing the Songs of God’s Salvation

This past weekend at Eastbrook Church I concluded our series “Turning to God in Troubling Times” from Habakkuk. In my message this weekend, “Singing the Songs of God’s Salvation,” I walked through Habakkuk 3:1-19, where Habakkuk comes to a point of resolution and faith in the midst of life’s troubles. Sometimes, when we find ourselves in the midst of trouble, the best thing we can do is to sing ourselves into the place of trust and joy in the Lord. This is what we find in Habakkuk…and it’s something we, too, can access.

Faithfulness in a Confusing World

What does it look like to live faithfully to God in a confusing world?

This past weekend at Eastbrook Church I explored that question as we continued our series “Turning to God in Troubling Times” from Habakkuk. In my message this weekend, “Faithfulness in a Confusing World,” we worked our way through Habakkuk 2:2-20. Here, God speaks to Habakkuk in response to the prophet’s second prayer of complaint in 1:12-2:1.

Talking with God When Pain Looms Large

This past weekend at Eastbrook Church I continued our series “Turning to God in Troubling Times” drawn from the 7th century B.C. prophet Habakkuk. This week, we walked through Habakkuk 1:12-2:1, where the prophet lifts up his second prayer of complaint to God. I offered special attention to the idea of standing at the watchtower of our lives in waiting on God.
