January 5, 2020: “The Greatness of God and Undivided Hearts” – An overview of the two-fold focus of the series. How do you use the word “great?” Is your heart fully committed to God, or is it divided?
January 12, 2020: “The Three Omnis” – Pastor Marlin talks about the three-fold “omni” traits of God: omniscient, omnipresent, and omnipotent. All three demonstrate how GREAT our God truly is!
January 19, 2020: “The Only Sovereign” – God is the supreme ruler with the ultimate authority. He has the independence and freedom to do as He chooses. Because of these truths, it is clear that God is the ONLY Sovereign.
January 26, 2020: “I Do Not Change” – God is immutable and unchangeable. All that is true of God will always remain true of God. God is unchanging in person, perfections, purposes, and promises. (On the audio, please note that the first 3:20 of the recording was audio of a video watched by the congregation. If you would like to begin when Pastor Marlin begins teaching, advance the recording to 3:22.)
February 2, 2020: “No Darkness at All” – God is light. There is no darkness in Him at all. Pastor Marlin examines how salvation through Jesus Christ takes us and transforms us from the dark to the light.
February 9, 2020: “A Good, Good Father” – We believe in the “omnis” about God. Omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient … but God is all of this AND GOOD. Read about His goodness as you follow along with Pastor Marlin’s message about our good, good Father.
February 16, 2019: “God is Love” – God’s love is giving and sacrificial. It is unconditional and everlasting, inseparable and unfailing. God’s love is GREAT, but more than anything: God IS love.
February 26, 2019: “Breathless” – The first of five messages within the message series. Join Pastor Marlin as he gives insight into Ephesians 1 and the breathless message Paul had for his letter’s recipients. God’s greatness will leave you with an undivided heart!
March 1, 2020: “Chosen and Predestined” – Before the creation of the world, God chose us. He predestined us in love, to be adopted as His children. Pastor Marlin tells us what God has to say about predestination in the book of Ephesians.
March 8, 2020: “Redeemed and Forgiven” – Pastor Marlin continues his closer look at Ephesians 1, examining the redeemed and forgiven Scriptures.
March 15, 2020: “Sealed by the Holy Spirit” – There is a special “quartet” that brings harmony and peace: Identity, Belonging, Security, and Hope. In Ephesians 1:3-14, we see evidence of all. Have you been marked by the seal of the Holy Spirit?
March 22, 2020: “There is a Plan” – This is the last message in the sermon series, “2020 Vision: The Greatness of God and Undivided Hearts.” Friends, there is a plan. God’s plan has a beginning and a fulfillment, and it involves the entire Godhead. We are part of God’s plan!
