When Do I Need to Start Loving Cubs Fans? (June 14, 2021)

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 9:24 PM

Are we prepared for Jesus’s return? Pastor Tim continues our series in Matthew 24-25, looking this week at Jesus’s call that we always be prepared.

The Weak Get Going? (June 7, 2021)

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 8:53 PM

Persecution is a difficult topic to preach on. I don’t want to be persecuted, so saying, “That’s something God said would happen,” isn’t exactly a message I want to hear. But, when we understand how God works and what He calls us to do, at least the difficulties we face start to make more sense.

Phishers of Men (May 31, 2021)

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 6:28 PM

As we continue our series “the Future is Here,” looking at the “Little Apocalypse” of Matthew 24-25, we dig into Jesus’s warnings about those who will lead many astray — false Messiahs and false prophets. Today, we have false pastors, politicians and more who often fit into those roles. Who are we prone to listening to whom we should not?

Is the Low Fuel Light of Time On? (May 24, 2021)

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 8:19 PM

Since I moved away from Dispensationalism years ago during seminary, I’ve thought about preaching a series on the End Times someday, but had always thought I should wait and mull a bit longer. However, as I’ve been praying about message series for Little Hills, it felt like such a series was needed, so… here we go.

To start a series on the “Little Apocalypse” or “Olivette Discourse” (Matthew 24-25), I think we need to begin where Jesus did, heading off at the pass two risks we face when dealing with the future: apathy and obsession. In contrast to these, Jesus instructs us on how to have the right mindset about the future and that’s what we consider in this week’s message.

Poor Excuses? (May 17, 2021)

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 8:21 PM

How does the Church deal with poverty? How do we understand what the Bible says about care for the poor and how it says, “If any will not work, neither let him eat”? As I conclude the second volume of Proverbially Speaking, we look at “Poor Excuses” and God’s Answers. Like so much in Scripture, we are called to a balance we struggle to achieve.

Respect the Curry (May 10, 2021)

I continues the Little Hills series in Proverbs, considering what the Proverbs tell us about whom we should spend time around.

Honestly! (May 3, 2021)

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 8:04 PM

How important is our integrity in daily life to God? Is it really necessary? That’s my questions to consider for this week’s message.

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

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 1:20 PM

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. Paul has speaks very clearly in the next part of 1 Cor. 15 on why that cannot be.
