    America - Lest We Forget - Part 2

    America - Lest We Forget - Part 2

    When men forget God, terrible things unfold. Pastor Allen Jackson discusses the biblical foundations that built America and emphasizes the importance of standing for our faith today, so God is not forgotten. The Ten Commandments outline God’s standards of holiness, and Pastor Allen summarizes what they say and provides insight on how they apply to our lives. It doesn't take long to lose an idea. If we don't fear the Lord and walk uprightly in holiness and righteousness, teaching our children to do the same, that wisdom will be lost to us, as a people.

    We’re not the first generation to wander away from God. In this sermon, Pastor Allen Jackson discusses several times in the Bible where God extended mercy and grace to His wayward people, once they decided to return to Him with their whole hearts.

    Let's Please God — Lead a Life of Significance

    God is still recruiting men and women who will give themselves to His purposes. In this sermon, Pastor Allen Jackson talks about the importance of choosing to please God, saying “yes” when He recruits us for assignments. Pastor Allen shows how several heroes in the Bible responded when God asked them to do something difficult. Their initial responses were much like ours: "I’m not ready; I’m not capable; I’m too busy; There are other people more qualified to do that, God.” When God calls us to do something new, it generally comes with challenges. But if we determine to pray, please God, and do difficult things, He will use our lives to accomplish mighty things in His Kingdom.

    Let's Please God - Character Counts - Part 2

    Let's Please God - Character Counts - Part 2

    If we don’t know the character of God, it’s impossible to know how to please Him. In this sermon, Pastor Allen Jackson discusses how, if we intend to please God, we need to recognize what actions bring Him pleasure and those that invite His wrath. We find examples of people pleasing God in every book of the Bible, and Pastor Allen offers insight on what this looks like in Daniel’s life and the parable of the talents. These stories show a variety of behaviors that led to God’s trust and reward, and those that caused His displeasure. We cannot continue to make decisions that go against God's Word and expect Him to continue to extend His blessings. But when we live our lives from a posture of wanting to please Him with our time, energy, and resources, He promises His grace and protection.

    The End of this Age - Stand Firm

    The End of this Age - Stand Firm

    We must change the way we think about the spiritual forces at work around us, Pastor Allen Jackson says. Ignoring them is a naïve and unhelpful response and does not remove us from their influence. Satan rules a kingdom that flourishes in the midst of deception, lies, and partial truths. Jesus won the battle on the cross, and the victory is ours; but Satan has not been banished from this realm yet, so we are still on assignment to be salt and light in the conflict with the unseen forces of evil. Our response is not passive—hiding in our homes and church buildings. We are called to intentionally engage and resist the evil in our world. When we stand firm in our faith and make a difference for God’s Kingdom, we declare the victory that is ours through the redemptive work of Jesus.

    America - Restored or Rebuked

    America - Restored or Rebuked

    God is dealing with His people in our nation, and we can't afford to ignore it. In this sermon, Pastor Allen Jackson discusses issues the United States currently faces including lawlessness, illegal immigration, censorship, and division, and the role of God’s people in the face of this adversity. Our primary allegiance must always be to God’s eternal Kingdom, not an earthly nation, yet God has called us to stand in this time, in this place, for His purposes. Pastor Allen discusses the value of work, the paralyzing effects of fear, and the importance of living out our faith, exactly where God placed us.

    Let's please God. Making that statement the focus of our lives will cause the troubles of this world to dim as we engage in the specific assignments God has for us each day. In this sermon, Pastor Allen Jackson talks about the freedom that comes from choosing to please the Lord in each decision we make. Our tendency is to please men or fit in with the culture. This is nothing new; we see examples of this behavior throughout the Bible. The truth is that our choices either please the Lord—or they don’t. There is no middle ground. Let’s be a generation that’s defined by our willingness to please God.

    The End of this Age – Lord, We Are Listening

    The End of this Age – Lord, We Are Listening

    The two primary characteristics of the people of God are that they listen and obey. It’s not enough just to listen or recognize that God has said something; we must obey. We are in desperate need of listening to God and perceiving what He is doing, Pastor Allen Jackson says, and that is more about the attributes of our hearts than it is about our physical ability to hear. It is possible, he says, to be the people of God, and engaged in all kinds of religious activity, yet still be oblivious to what God is saying and doing. A person becomes a spiritual listener by putting off the old self and being made new in the attitudes of our heart and mind. When we allow the Holy Spirit to transform us, our hearts will remain tender toward the Lord and we can recognize what He is doing and participate in His purposes in the earth.
