What did Paul mean when he wrote, "God has made us alive together with Christ"? In this Easter Sermon, Pastor Chad draws out the distinctions of chapter 2 showing that because we are dead in sins, it is the beautiful work of salvation that makes us alive to Christ. Because we once walked according to the course of this world, once we experience true salvation, it seats us in Heavenly places, meaning we are citizens of Heaven.

Verse 10 of 1 John 3 is the key verse to this section of the Apostle John's writing. He wants us to know if we are genuine, born again children of God.
It is interesting that federal agents who work for the Treasury Department who track down counterfeit money are able to spot counterfeits currency often just by touching it. How can they distinguish the difference between what is real and what is fake? You would think they studied fake money, but they don't. They study real money! The seals, the watermarks, the ink toner and much more. Because they study real currency, they are able to quickly spot counterfeit money.
In a similar way, John teaches what real, authentic Christians are like. By studying what Christians are to be like, it can help you gauge if you are truly born again.
This sermon is the conclusion of a three week study of 1 John.

Most Americans do not consider themselves rich, especially when comparing ourselves to celebrities or athletes. However, when you compare our incomes to those of the average global incomes, it becomes very clear how rich we really are.
As a matter of fact, if you have sufficient food, adequate shelter, decent clothing and reliable transportation you are considered among the world's wealthy.
It is important to understand how blessed we are because the Bible has very specific instructions to the "rich of this present age." The Bible says to "charge them" or instruct, command or teach them how to view their riches.
So in week 3 of Right on the Money, 1 Timothy 6 has a great to say to us...we who own a good living. In reality, we are loaded. Let's learn together what God expects us to do with our wealth.

The Bible speaks of money and possessions over 2,000 times because stewardship is that important in our lives.
In week 2 of Right on the Money, Pastor Chad shows us the direct link in Scripture between marriage, money and contentment. He answers these questions with the Bible:
- Why is it wrong to want to be rich?
- How do you balance the tension of being ambitious, wanting more for your family and yet learning to be content with what you have?
- Why does the Bible link adultery and affairs with the issue of money and contentment?
Our goal is in this sermon is to show you why the issue of contentment is so important to your life and marriage. God has so much to say to us on this issue. We hope you will listen to this in its entirety and that God's Word will increase your faith and understanding in what God wants for your life and family.

In week one of Right on the Money, Pastor Chad walks us through the book of Haggai.
Most American's live pay check to pay check. What do you do when you feel strapped as a family? What do you do when there never seems to be enough to make ends meet?
The people in Haggai's day dealt with the same issue. They sowed much but harvested little, they earned wages but felt like they put their money in bags with holes. They had food, clothing and homes but never felt satisfied. In other words, they were strapped.
God gave them the solution to their financial woes. He told them what He expected and how to turn their situation around. Chapter 1 is about their problem. Chapter 2 is about their solution.
We hope this sermon is incredibly helpful to you and your family.

In Pt. 2 of CHANGE, Pastor Chad talks about the discipline of good thinking. He breaks this talk into three sections.
First the practical. Do you see thinking as a discipline? How far would you go in life if you improved your thinking? He discusses big picture thinking, realistic thinking, strategic thinking and other types of thinking that can have a big impact in our lives.
