The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Acts 7, in which Stephen is martyred, and John 14, in which Jesus claims to be the way, the truth, and the life. How do we respond when we hear that there is a God, and that we're not him? We can put our fingers in our ears, or we can repent and beg for a savior. The Good News is that Jesus, that savior, is always there for us.

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on 1 Peter 1, in which the people are told that an impartial God will inspire "reverent fear."

Using Sally Lloyd-Jones' THE JESUS STORYBOOK BIBLE, Pastor Nick and Hazel share a devotion about the human urge to make something of ourselves and how God stops us in our tracks. But finally, they remind us that God redeems us, and helps us to praise his name.
