    Creating a Place
    Posted by Deann Daniel
    Deann Daniel uses 2 Kings 1-7 to teach us about "Creating a Place." This passage of Scripture is about the woman who was told to gather jars to fill with oil. Deann points out the fact that the oil didn't stop flowing until there was no more room for it, or until there was no longer a created place for it. God will move and flow in our lives wherever we create a place for Him to. Deann encourages us to create places in our lives for God to move.

    Posted by Wade Ford
    As Christians, we are to live inside the boundaries of God's Kingdom. Wade Ford gives us 4 reasons Christians move their boundaries, only one of which is a good reason. 1) To align ourselves with God. 2) Lack of endurance. 3) Temptations. 4) Desires. When we move our boundaries to align ourselves with God and live within His kingdom, we live blessed. When we move our boundaries for any other reason, it is to leave outside the boundaries of the Kingdom of God.

    Endurance vs. Giving Up
    Posted by Wade Ford
    Wade Ford talks about the importance of difficult times in our lives. He shows us that James 1:3 tells us that our endurance has a chance to grow when our faith is tested, which tells us that our endurance does not have a chance to grow if our faith is not tested. If we are saved from every stressful situation, our lives are cut short and we never live out our full potential.

    The Dividing Line Part 3
    Posted by Ashley Ellison
    Pastor Ashley Ellison continues talking about biblical lines and wisdom lines. Some dividing lines that we make in our lives are simply based on what is wise (Ephesians 5) and not specific Scripture. He gives us 3 instances where we might feel as if we need to cross our dividing lines in order to "be somebody", but in fact, we do not. Crossing our dividing lines often results in more pain than popularity in the end.

    Confidence and Courage
    In our desire to produce self-confidence, we have created a culture of arrogance. We often think that we need more confidence when we really need courage. Courage is a byproduct of faith and confidence in God, not ourselves. In this sermon, Melanie Bertoglio uses a great example to show us the importance of trusting in God to overcome our "giants."
