The Evergreen Hope of Easter (April 5, 2021)

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 8:44 PM

The hope of Easter is based on the foundation that Jesus intended to, was able to and did accomplish salvation for us. For my new Steadfast series — “Alive” — I turn to the hope we find in 1 Corinthians 15 regarding Jesus’s resurrection.

Overturning the Right Tables (March 29, 2021)

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 9:41 PM

The last of the poisons in our series is “discord.” How do we know when we are causing discord and when we are standing up for what is good and righteous?

Are We Identity Thieves?

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 7:00 PM

We would never steal… or would we? I continued the series “Six Poisons” this week as we turn to the topic of false witnesses and how we often steal something precious from those around us without even thinking about it.

The Lost Tourist

On this one year anniversary of Steadfast, I continue our series, “Six Poisons,” thinking about the evil plans we can allow ourselves to fall into — and God’s better plans.

They'll Know We Are Christians by Our Anger? (March 8, 2021)

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 8:43 PM
We have so much we feed our anger on: politics, our neighbors, pop culture, the world in general. Is that what God has called us to?

Tongues of Liar (March 1, 2021)

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 8:43 PM

What does it mean to have a lying tongue? Why does the Proverb distinguish it from bearing false witness? Join me as we continue our series on Six Poisons from Proverbs 6.

Picking the Right Highway (February 15, 2021)

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 8:55 PM

As I wrap up the series _Delighted in God_, we look at the judgment of God and how even judgment is a call to delight in the one who shows us mercy.

Turn Which Way

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 8:13 PM

One of the things they made a big deal out of in seminary was not to preach “be like” sermons. The Bible (intentionally, I believe) is full of stories that show the flaws in the individuals whom God uses, not cleaned up “heroes” we should model ourselves after — that role is left for Jesus alone. That said, the church at Berea is an interesting anomaly of sorts: all we know about them is that they were “noble” for their eagerness to examine the Scriptures and that they responded in belief. To be called to “be like the Bereans” is to be called to be eager to dig into God's Word. That's a great thing and that's what we explore in Acts 17:10-15.

Breaking the Broken Mold

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 3:00 PM

Palm Sunday is an interesting day — joyful and yet incomplete feeling since we know what comes afterward during Holy Week. For this year's message, we turned to Zechariah 9:9-17 to explore the partial and complete fulfillment of the Messianic promises we find in Jesus's triumphal entry into Jerusalem. By doing so, we learn more about the mission Jesus calls us into as citizens of His Kingdom.

One Better As Our Perfecter

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 4:56 AM

As FaithTree begins its Winter/Spring season, Brad Harris (Associate Pastor at Bible Baptist) and I began a message series delving deeper into the One who is Better, following up from my sermon from a few weeks ago. You can see our shared message on Heb. 12:1-2, as well as the rest of the service from Thursday, January 10, below. (Don't miss the great worship music before and after the message!)
