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…

Sufferings in Our Security Bring Joy

How can you explain why difficulties come? One moment you are in your own lane, moving at the posted rate of speed. And in the next, the waves splash high over your head. We have a true Friend in Peter. As we learned in our Introduction to First Peter this is a man uniquely qualified to speak about trials and sufferings. We begin at verse 3 (Restart will return to the…

The 7 Deadly Sins – Wrath

Would you say you have a temper? The Word of God has much to offer in terms of understanding temper, anger, (or as termed in this study) Wrath.  And what’s more important – the Bible offers a clear path to directly engage our temper and overcome it.  You could say it’s the ultimate in anger management. Four Truths about Wrath Though there are bundles of…

The 7 Deadly Sins – Pride

Production Note There is no video available for this message.  I feel really bad about this.  Sorry. What’s Up with The Seven Deadly Sins?

Why Doesn’t God Hear Me?

Why do my prayers get stuck? I know it says in John 3:16 ‘”For God so LOVED the world”; I know Jeremiah wrote (31:3)  “I have loved thee with an everlasting love.” – but my prayer life does not reflect that intimacy.  Why i am not feeling it? What about that crisis i am in?  What about that job, that relationship, that difficulty, that…

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…

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…

Peacemaker

What’s a Peacemaker?
