A Crossed Shaped People: Sacrifice

Mar 13, 2022  Elisha Freeman — Oswald Chambers once said ‘All heaven is interested in the cross, all hell is terribly afraid of it, while men are the only beings who more or less ignore its meaning.’ We continue with our series that focus’ on the disciples of Jesus who are committed to following Him. If we are going to follow Jesus then a cross is the path. How can we become a cross shaped people? This morning we will explore this question and have Jesus’ answer challenge us.

When I Survey the Wondrous Cross—Scandal

Apr 14, 2019 — Elisha Freeman

The earthy life of Jesus is hemmed in by scandal. From a human point of view, his birth was scandalous and so was his death. The Apostle Paul tells us that the Cross of Jesus is a “stumbling block” an “offense” or a “scandal” to those who hear about it. Today, the cross is still a scandal that reveals God’s love, forgiveness, and path to salvation.

When I Survey the Wondrous Cross—The Weight of Sin

Apr 07, 2019 – Elisha Freeman

All of us came this morning seeking something to help us with a need. A need to contend with worry, a need to have a better marriage, a need for a stronger faith. While most of our needs vary person-to-person, there is one need that we share. It is a need that shows no distinction, it is a need that does not care who we are, where we have come from, or where we are going. This morning God is going to use His word to remind of us our need to deal with sin and to encourage us to seek out His forgiveness.
