Memorial Day 2019

Will others say you treated the Bible like it was the very Words of God?  Will they say it affected the way you lived and loved others? Today at Restart we celebrate Memorial Day as people determined to be remembered for our love of the Word of God. Philip Klevmoen joins Pastor Bob in the Pulpit to emphasize what the Word of God means to him, and then what all Believers…

Introduction to First Peter

This first writing of Simon Peter’s is the very tonic you and I need. Our introductory instruction will show how singularity qualified this vulnerable and effusive man is in guiding you and I through the sufferings of life. But first, what do we know about him from the Bible? We know he was a Fisherman: As He was going along by the Sea of Galilee, He saw Simon and…

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,…

Salt and Light

Salt and Light, Baby In this final installment from our series on the Sermon on the Mount we probe why Christ would call His followers to be salt and light in their dealings among others.  Don’t you think them interesting?  Our text is Matthew 5: 13-16.  Let’s take a closer look… Salt of the Earth If you’ve spent anytime in and among Bible-teaching…

They All Left Him and Fled

Three types of Jesus Followers We take our study today from the book of Mark, Chapter 14.   Let’s start from verse 12 – where Christ’s disciples go to prepare the Passover (aka The Last Supper) – and let’s work together through to verse 50 where we find recorded the damning sentence which is the title of this instruction: “They all left…

Pure in Heart

The Power in Purity of Heart This then is at the heart of this, our sixth of the nine Beatitudes.  The power and life-changing potential behind this statement:  Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God.  I offer this verse from Proverbs as we travel the Jesus Path together as we consider this Beatitude. Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do…

Indulgence – Demonic Attack on the Fruit of Self Control

We’ve traveled along together for some time now learning the lessons of spiritual warfare.   God has proclaimed nine aspects – or segments – which He termed fruit of the Spirit.  Our premise has been that Satan and his screwed-up crowd are going to peck at you, Raven-like,…

The Triumphal Entry 2018

Resurrection Sunday Christ rising from the dead is what we stop to consider, admire and worship today.  And yet even this unprecedented fact of history was lovingly woven in advance into the very fabric of the Hebrew Nation.  The preeminence of Jesus as first fruits from the grave is anticipated by the Third of the Seven Feasts of Israel called the Feast of First Fruits. …
