Jesus is Our Hope

We continually remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Thessalonians 1:3

What makes Jesus so great?
Is it solely because He is a King and He is Lord of all? Maybe Jesus is great because He can heal the sick and perform great miracles. All of those things are tremendous and well worth mentioning. But if I were to summarize what makes Jesus great, it would be one word—Hope. He offers hope. And hope, for times such as these, means everything in our world today.

Although I am a pastor, I really don’t like being too “preachy,” that’s just not my style. I’d much prefer conversations face to face. I like connecting heart to heart. I prefer gathering around a matter that means a lot to you. I’m much more into the personal approach. With that said, I really have to be honest with you and risk it all. It’s way too important not to broach this subject with you. 

America: Where is the Hope?

I love America.

While I am not always proud of every decision America has made, or am I proud of all of her negative past, I can still say with great conviction that America is a great country. A country I am blessed to live in. A country I am proud to stand up for.

How do I define greatness? Greatness is not defined the way many people in our society define greatness. In our world most people determine greatness by how much money a person has. What kind of car he or she drives. Or even by how large their home is. Some people think that if they earn a six-figure income then they are great.
