Who is Jesus? The Human One Bound to Time

May 05, 2024  Elisha Freeman — It is hard to imagine that an amazing reality of the miracle of the incarnation of Jesus is that to become human required Him to be bound to time. As God, Jesus is beyond time. He created time and controls time, but in humbling himself to become human Jesus binds himself to time. While on earth, how did Jesus view time? Approach time? Use time? These questions and more we will explore this morning.

Living the Word: Old to New

Apr 16, 2o23 — Elisha Freeman  The crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus are the cornerstone elements of the Gospel. Jesus dies for our sin to offer the opportunity of forgiveness and is resurrected to provide hope and victory. However, the Gospel is more than a feel good story. The Gospel is God’s good news of life. Life in the present and in the future. The New Testament describes life in the present as ‘new life’. What is this new life? This morning we will turn to Ephesians 4:17-24 for our answers and our challenge to live this new life to the glory of God.

Rise & Build: Setting the Altar in Place

Jul 18, 2021 — Elisha Freeman — In Ezra 3, As God’s people gather in a specific place and a specific time, their specific purpose is revealed; to rebuild the national altar and restart the the daily sacrifices. This action, despite much opposition, reveals the spiritual priorities of the people and the importance of sacrifice in Judaism. This morning we will examine these examples to gain the same insights and how they will help us as a local congregation to rise and build.
