This week's midweek message answers the question "why is truly forgiving so hard?" Christianity proclaims it is all about forgiveness. Forgiveness by God and forgiveness like God. Since forgiveness is central to our faith we must identify and confront all barriers to forgiveness. This message will give you a brief overview of the work to do in us and through us.

Don't Live in the Past In times of trouble, we often resist change and retreat into an imagined good-old-days nostalgia. God works all things together for good for those who love him (Romans 8:28). For us to join God, we must live presently in His presence. You can't live in the past and grow at the same time.

We are bombarded by so much through social media, the news, entertainment, sports, etc. that we can lose our focus on what is truly important.

Patience is the fruit of the Spirit that God plants in us and then we cooperate in its growth. We are warned by some "do not pray for patience." I think this is terrible advice. It assumes God is a sadistic being who will throw all kinds of problems on you just because you sought to reflect an attribute of his love. In case you failed to notice we,...

Radical Forgiveness It is hard to love people when you are angry at them. Since love is our goal, learning to forgive and have our ability to love restored is important. The Bible says love never fails but if that’s true why do the people we try to love make us so mad? We say, “I am being so loving, and look how I am being treated.” It feels like love fails at such times. As I thought about 1 Corinthians 13:8 Love never fails, I realized for most of my life I had God’s idea of love all...

We were created to be together and to feel a connection to each other. This past year, this has been enormously hard.  Church, at it's root, is a relationship. This week, Pastor Joe talks with us about what the Bible says about that relationship.

After over a year of adjusting to the pandemic, we have had to relearn what being a church really means and why God put us together in Lewis County. As always, the case relearning usually starts with unlearning some false ideas and bad habits. The covid crises have provided a God-sized opportunity to go back to what all the Godly teachers in TFBC’s history tried to show us “being comes before doing.” As Henry Blackaby once told me “if you will focus on what Jesus Christ wants you to be...

Dear Friends, Wow, it’s 2018! What’s next for us? What does God want me to do this year? Does God care about my life? What is God’s plan and how can I know it? When it comes to doing the next thing how can we know what God wants? Jesus said knowing and doing Gods will is essential for being recognized as part of his family. Mat 12:50 “For whoever does the will of My Father who is in heaven, he is My brother and sister and mother.” This week’s lessons on what we should pay attention...

Dear Friends, We live in the middle of history. Someone said history is His-story.  I suppose that means we are to live in the light of the great events of HIS story. The scripture we will talk about in the preaching time and small groups highlights two historical mountains in God’s plan for this world.

Dear Friends, The church is called to be an unexplainable community. The way we take care to love each other is unexplainable except for the presence of God. Jesus said it: “By this, all men will know that you are My disciples if you have love for one another. “ -John 13:35

Dear Friends, The next two weeks will conclude our talks on change and transition toward Christmas.  December 3rds lesson is on how Gods way of change includes others. The life we live in Christ is a life lived out as a body. We are to live and think as a living functioning part of a community. This is hard for us modern Americans to think like this. We [...]

Dear Friends, What is the change that gets noticed? Wither its losing weight or stopping smoking, being kind where you used to be impatient and harsh. these are the changes that get noticed.  Jesus said… Mat 7:20 “So then, you will know them by their fruits."

Dear Friends, The Bible tells us that real change will involve your mind and your heart. Just knowing things will do little until you deeply feel your need to the point of moving your will.  We are called to have pure hearts. To guard our hearts and to love with all our heart.

Dear Friends, Fall is here with its beautiful colors and cool weather.  Some like this change but others do not because they love the summer heat and sun.  As we journey through life, one of the main constants we have is change.  Some love and invite change while others dread it.  No matter how you feel about it, change is something we all need to face.

Change begins with a change of mind. We have many examples in the Gospel of religious people being closed minded. It is a terrible grief to God when we are close-minded to Jesus .

We all know we have areas where we need to change for the good. These changes are almost always in our best interest.  The changes God moves us toward always bring Him the most glory. So, why do we ignore and often resist the need to change? This Sunday, we will explore what gets in the way and why we get stuck and stay stuck.

One of the most popular Christian themes in our culture is the Golden Rule or “Do unto others as you would want them to do to you.”. This idea is actually found in most religious teachings and is a main teaching in Humanism as well.  With all the emphasis on this idea, one would think the world would be a pretty kind place.  Often it is not.

We all want to see our friends and family know and experience the hope of the gospel. For this to happen they must be told about Christ in a clear and powerful way. Why is it that so few people effectively share Christ? in fact, many who claim to share Christ seem to do more damage than they do convincingly.

The hardest command from the sermon on the mount is also the most important, “DON’T JUDGE!”  The tendency to proudly compare and condescend to others is a destructive and witness destroying sin. Jesus and the apostles condemned it repeatedly and severely. As Religious people, we are especially vulnerable to this tendency because we know the truth of God and speak for God it is easy to begin to play God. This is the most common form of Idolatry. We can do it all under the excuse of I am...

“Don’t Worry, Be Happy.” This is great advice but hard to do. Worry steals the joy out of our lives and stunts our souls. This Sunday I will show you what Jesus taught about moving into a life of no worries. I really pray you come. Remember we have the VBS picnic at the Toledo City Park after the 11 A.M. service. Please pray for me and for the services and classes.

It’s so easy to get distracted from God. It happens so gradually we often don’t realize how far of we are until we are in crises. Like driving distracted you are often in great danger when you don’t realize it. Sometimes the more comfortable we are the more likely we are to take our eyes off the road or God. There is nothing that can distract us faster than money and stuff.  Jesus warned us against this repeatedly. Mar 4:19  but the worries of the world, and the deceitfulness of riches,...
