First Assembly NLR Audio Podcast
Weekend messages from Pastor Rod Loy and FirstNLR.

This is one of the most incredible stories in the Bible.  This is the story of two very different men, who both had visions from God.  It's a story filled with danger, intrigue, surprise, and adventure.  It's the story of a villain, who became one of the most well known Christ followers in history.  What can we learn from these two men as we look forward to a new year?

Do you ever feel like your life is out of control - like you just can't take it anymore?  As you look back on the year, has it been a peaceful one, or has it been a year filled with stress and anxiety?   We all face stress.  The question is:  how will you handle it?

Many people struggle with loneliness, but it's hard to admit when we are lonely.  But feeling lonely doesn't make you a failure.  It isn't silly.  It's something we all face at some point.  The good news is:  if you are lonely, there is help!

God can use ordinary people to do extraordinary things.  Mary, the mother of Jesus, was just a regular girl.  The disciples were all normal, regular, unimpressive people, but God used them to change the world.   What do we need to do for God to use us for His will?  What is the cost?

Do you consider yourself and ungrateful person?  Most people don't.  We are usually blind to our own ingratitude.  It's not that we don't want to be grateful, we just forget.  The difference between being grateful and being ungrateful is a lot more than just two letters!  In this message, Pastor Patrick Lander encourages us to live a life of gratitude!

Everybody needs help at some point. You need help from other people, even if you don't want to admit it.  You need help from God.  Asking for help is not a sign of weakness!  Often, asking for help is a sign of wisdom!

Some things are impossible for people.  We don't have the ability and will never have the ability.  But for God?  Nothing is Impossible.  With God, all things are possible.

 Jesus said we were to go out into all the world and preach the Gospel.  It seems like an impossible task.  But is the impossible possible?
