Father’s Day posted by John Sorensen on Jun, 11


Over and over again throughout Scripture, you'll notice that God is referred to as a Father. Now, that may seem strange to those who don't know Him, but as believers, we know that the Lord desires to have a relationship with us and take care of His children just as a father should. The perfect illustration of God's Fatherly love towards us was given to us by Jesus in the Parable of the Prodigal So...  Read the full post ( 309 words, estimated 1:14 mins reading time )

Rest posted by John Sorensen on Jun, 4


‘You've been saved by grace through faith - not of works, lest any man should boast...’ Ephesians 2:8 Take a deep breath and let that sink in. If you know Jesus as your Savior, are you still trying to win His approval and work your way into Heaven? If you're a better Christian, will you deserve Heaven any more? The answer is no. So, rest. Rest in the fact that God stepped down in human f...  Read the full post ( 345 words, estimated 1:23 mins reading time )

Finish Strong posted by John Sorensen on May, 27


Do you ever feel like fast forwarding to the 'good part' of life? Maybe you're in a storm right now and you just want things to get better and move past this part. Well, there aren't buttons like that in life. Solomon has some wisdom for us in Ecclesiastes chapter seven, for when we feel like this. ’Better is the end of a thing than its beginning, and the patient in spirit is better than the...  Read the full post ( 333 words, estimated 1:20 mins reading time )

Service and Sacrifice posted by John Sorensen on May, 20


Where have you seen examples of service and sacrifice? Certainly, around Memorial Day, we see tributes to our fallen soldiers and added thankfulness to those currently serving. But have you really thought about their sacrifice for us? They leave behind their families and the comfort of home to step out into the unknown for me and you. Every morning, our service men and women wake up, put their...  Read the full post ( 333 words, estimated 1:20 mins reading time )

Change the World posted by John Sorensen on May, 13


How are you changing the world? Now, you might be thinking, 'John, changing the world sounds great, but I'd just like to figure out how the rest of the day is going to go!' While that may be the case, changing the world starts with one decision. That one decision just might be to get involved with EE's Change Makers! This program is designed to equip young adults, usually 18-35 year olds, to ch...  Read the full post ( 329 words, estimated 1:19 mins reading time )

Mother’s Day posted by John Sorensen on May, 6


Abraham Lincoln once said, ‘I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.’ Your mother brings you into this world, but it doesn't stop there. Whether or not your biological mother raised you, you've probably been influenced greatly by a woman who cared for you like a mother. I've heard about a mother who prayed fervently for her son....  Read the full post ( 414 words, estimated 1:39 mins reading time )

Corporate Prayer posted by John Sorensen on Apr, 29


'And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.' Jesus said these words in His sermon on the Mount, so where does that leave us on the subject of corporate prayer? Jesus didn't say 'don't pray at all in front of people!' No, the Lord's he...  Read the full post ( 473 words, estimated 1:54 mins reading time )

Holy Week posted by John Sorensen on Apr, 15


As Easter approaches, I want us to focus on the sacrifice that Jesus made for us. We celebrate a living Savior who suffered on our behalf. He did what we could never do so that we could experience eternity with Him… He is despised and rejected by men, A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Hi...  Read the full post ( 500 words, estimated 2:00 mins reading time )
