Melanie turns us to Micah this week to think about how God has a plan for our salvation throughout all time. There’s even a hint of Christmas in what she shares!

Flood Stage (August 2, 2021)

What are Baptism and the Lord’s Supper meant to do? How do we make sense of them? Are they mere empty rituals? Things we can do to save ourselves? Something else?

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 8:35 PM

What makes us foolish vs. wise in God’s eyes? That’s the question of the night as we dig into Matthew 25:1-13 (The Wise and Foolish Virgins). Got a few minutes? Please join me. :-)

The End of the (Real) Cold War (April 26, 2021)

As we wrap up “alive,” we find that the resurrection speaks to more than just us having a body again: it speaks to restoration for the world.

What is a Resurrection Body? (April 19, 2021)

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 8:56 PM

What does it mean to be resurrected? We have lots of ideas, but are they what God is actually promising? As we continue through 1 Corinthians 15 this week, we get to that central point — and struggle — with the doctrine of the resurrection of the dead. It’s so important to understand so that we can approach life and death with the hope God gives us.

Spare Parts of Belief? (April 12, 2021)

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 8:29 PM

This week on Steadfast, I looked at the promise of resurrection for each of us. Many in our society would accept a lot of Jesus’ teachings and yet discount the resurrection as just a comforting myth to help us cope with death.

Palm Sunday was yesterday, marking the beginning of Holy Week. A week when Christians remember Jesus’s path toward crucifixion and His subsequent overcoming of death. While both Palm Sunday and Easter are filled with joy, the joy of Palm Sunday is striking in how the crowd was joyful – at least in part – for the wrong reasons.

One Better

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 3:00 PM

For the last six years, I have had the joy to share God's Word the Sunday after Christmas (seven years ago, my first Christmas as a pastor, I shared a message the Sunday before Christmas). For this year's message, I felt led to turn to Hebrews 1:1-4, a beautiful, powerful description of the one born in Bethlehem. Now that the Christmas rush has died down and we find ourselves on the sixth day of Christmas, let's dig into more about the one who came to save us on that first Christmas morn.
