This sermon is Pastor Stan Grizzle's final sermon as Interim Pastor of MCA. 
In the Christian life there are trials and temptations. James doesn’t say – IF you face trials – but WHENEVER you face them. James tells us to turn our hardships into times of learning.
The apostle John’s emphasis of obedience to the will of God is significant ...
“And the world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the
will of God abides forever” (1 John 2:17, NASB).

Those living in fellowship (“walking in the light”) with Christ will manifest two
important attitudes ...
1. A Willing Obedience Toward The Will Of God. 
2. An Eternal Perspective Toward All Of Life.
We live in an age of uncertainty, don’t we? It seems like all of the things that you can really count on – all the things that we are really sure of – are coming unglued. Paul lived in a time of uncertainty, too. If you stop and think about it – his life, his health, his freedom were in constant jeopardy. And yet, in the midst of the uncertainty that swirled around him, Paul wrote these lines with confidence. He says – “And we know ...” This was not an untested hypothesis. What he is about to tell us is absolute truth. Paul was confident of it.
The Bible commands us to forgive others when they have wronged us and to seek forgiveness when we have wronged others. When God forgives you – you are freed from guilt and restored to fellowship with Him. When you forgive someone who has wronged you – you are freed from the bitterness and resentment that can saturate your soul like toxic waste. Receiving God’s forgiveness and forgiving others are at the core of what it means to be a Christian.

A Wednesday Night Bible Study through the Book of Revelation. Week one focused on...Keys to Understanding the Book of Revelation.
How much money is enough? Solomon asked that question about 5,000 years ago. Ecclesiastes 5:11 (TLB) … “What is the advantage of wealth?”
The problem most of us face is worry over money. When problems arise, we are tempted to think that a little more money would solve the problem.
We subconsciously think … If I have more money, then I’ll be happy.  Ecclesiastes 5 is a practical commentary on money and financial integrity.
Death is a topic that most people don’t want to talk about. When people talk about death and dying – they often use terms like: “passing on” or “slipping away” or “going to a better place.” Funerals are now called “a celebration of life service.” Cemeteries are now known as “memorial gardens.” 
The statistics on people dying are 100 percent. That makes it a relevant subject. Solomon speaks honestly about death and dying in words of realism balanced with hope. What does Solomon have to say to us about ... “What happens after I die?”
During this 3-week series we will look at several passages of scripture that include ALL in the text to teach us important truths about God.

Cafés are a natural place to engage in conversations about God. Many of us don’t just swing by for a quick caffeine fix and then dash out. We like to sit down, relax, and read a book or engage in conversation with a friend over a cup of coffee with espresso brownies or cranberry-orange muffins.

A coffee shop is a superb place to talk about what’s important … what makes for good life … why we should be moral … what is really real.

In café chats … you ultimately get down to the issues of truth and reality … the fundamentals of any philosophy of life. Let’s imagine walking into the Salt Creek Cafe and getting our coffee and sitting down and striking up a conversation with a stranger there who happens to be Solomon. What direction do you think that conversation would take? What would we talk about? I believe we have that conversation recorded for us in the Book of Ecclesiastes.
