It is Good to be near God (Columbia Heights)

Psalm 73 1 Surely God is good to Israel,    to those who are pure in heart. 2 But as for me, my feet had almost slipped;    I had nearly lost my foothold.3 For I envied the arrogant    when I saw the prosperity of the wicked. 4 They have no struggles;    their bodies are healthy and strong.5 They are free from common human burdens;    they are not plagued by human ills.6 Therefore pride is their necklace;    they clothe themselves with violence.7 From their callous hearts comes iniquity;    their evil imaginations have no limits.8 They scoff, and speak with malice;    with arrogance they…

Put your Hope in God (Columbia Heights)

Psalm 42-43 1 As the deer pants for streams of water,    so my soul pants for you, my God.2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.    When can I go and meet with God?3 My tears have been my food    day and night,while people say to me all day long,    “Where is your God?”4 These things I remember    as I pour out my soul:how I used to go to the house of God    under the protection of the Mighty One[dwith shouts of joy and praise    among the festive throng.…

Trees Planted by Living Water (Columbia Heights)

Psalm 1 1 Blessed is the one    who does not walk in step with the wickedor stand in the way that sinners take    or sit in the company of mockers,2 but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,    and who meditates on his law day and night.3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,    which yields its fruit in seasonand whose leaf does not wither—    whatever they do prospers. 4 Not so the wicked!    They are like chaff    that the wind blows away.5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,    nor sinners in the assembly of the…

How to HELP a suffering friend. (Columbia Heights)

Exodus 17:11-13 11 As long as Moses held up his hands, the Israelites were winning, but whenever he lowered his hands, the Amalekites were winning. 12 When Moses’ hands grew tired, they took a stone and put it under him and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur held his hands up—one on one side, one on the other—so that his hands remained steady till sunset. 13 So Joshua overcame the Amalekite army with the sword. Hebrews 2:14-18 14 Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared…

Where is God When I’m Suffering? (Columbia Heights)

John 11:1-44 11 Now a man named Lazarus was sick. He was from Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha. 2 (This Mary, whose brother Lazarus now lay sick, was the same one who poured perfume on the Lord and wiped his feet with her hair.) 3 So the sisters sent word to Jesus, “Lord, the one you love is sick.” 4 When he heard this, Jesus said, “This sickness will not end in death. No, it is for God’s glory so that God’s Son may be glorified…

Who is Satan and what’s his problem? (Columbia Heights)

Genesis 3 3 Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?” 2 The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, 3 but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’”…

He Is Risen! Death Brings Fear, but Life has come and brings Joy. (Columbia Heights)

Mathew 28:1-11 28 After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb. 2 There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. 3 His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. 4 The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead…
