Palm Sunday 2019

The events of Palm Sunday were ordered 1500 years before they happened, and forecast to the exact day 500 years before. The intent of this message is to help us stop a moment to see the forecasted underpinnings behind the momentous events of what the Ancient Church termed “Holy Week.” Those things which lead to the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus. To…

The Four Cups of the Seder

Why should we study the Seder at all? I mean the Seder is an Old Testament practice, right? Well, it is indeed a prescription from our Friend Moses, the Servant of God. However permit me to suggest three things to remind us how rich and relevant the Seder is for Believers. You and I are rooted and part of Israel Some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild…

The 7 Deadly Sins – Lust

I know what Lust is – or Do I? We perhaps see Lust more as a noun: as in libedo; and lechery.   And though this indeed can become a stumbling block – the instruction here  emphasizes lust as a verb: as in desiring and craving.  And as such,  Lust is at the heart of all the 6 previous sins. We Must Begin with Human Composition The human critter is made up of…

The 7 Deadly Sins – Gluttony

Gluttony is Overeating, Right? Well, yes.  But the climb to Bible Ground reveals it is much more.  Gluttony is the sickness of becoming insatiable after anything.  It could be money or power. We can be selfish about the sanctity of our own time.  We get cranky when people or activities put a crimp on our personal time.  We begin to dodge responsibility to wallow in our…

Share Your Hope

Why A Sermon on Sharing Hope? At Restart we follow the imperative of sharing our Faith from an application of the story of David and Goliath.  The passage is found in 1 Samuel 17, but let’s lean in on verse 40: David took his stick in his hand and chose for himself five smooth stones from the brook, and put them in the shepherd’s bag which he had, even in his pouch,…

Recovery 3 of 5 – Self Assessment

Five Instructions about Recovery Would you agree that some aspects of your private behaviors are not what they should be; that you have a hidden life that holds you in it’s grip you would just as soon keep from the eyes of others? It’s about that pesky thing you do; that something that you know before hand you shouldn’t indulge in, and that afterwards…

Recovery, 2 of 5 – How Change Happens

Welcome to the Second of Five Instructions At Restart we are committed to Recovery – for each of us.   Because in a vey real sense, we all are addicts; we all are captured and held hostage by those things which entangle our living and knock us off the Jesus Path.  This is the second of five installments on Recovery.   These are not steps; not something one does and…

Gifting – Jesse James is Dead

Empty your wallets Man, I don’t know about you… but I have heard message after message about how I need to be giving sacrificially to the Church.   Listen: this is not a shake-down.  Jesse James is dead.  Restart Church doesn’t need your money.  Restart Church is not interested in your money.  The only thing I am interested in is that you leave this…

Peacemaker

What’s a Peacemaker? Hullo Friend.  Thank you for working through our library and finding this entry on the bookshelf.   The focus here is about becoming a Peacemaker and investigating its reward; being called a Child of God.  I must warn you however, my discoveries here reveal a very difficult and arduous stretch of the Jesus Path.  Becoming a Peacemaker is…
